Back 2 School Bash DownEast Review and Giveaway



On our recent trip to Utah ( I know I still need to post pics!) I discovered a whole new world of shopping. A place that is affordable and modest AND cute! It's called DownEast Basics. I actually found their site online and immediately asked if I could do a review. Then while in Utah I saw the store everywhere I went. It was so meant to be! DownEast Basics sent me a dress to review. I think that they have stopped selling it so I don't have a pic but lets just say it is fabulous! I also received this adorable Dress Up skirt for girls.
I am so impressed with the quality of the clothing compared to the price. Most of the time what you pay for is what you get but here you get affordable clothing that is going to last.

DownEast Basics just came out with their new fall line and really have some adorable pieces for girls. Check out this super cute Rows of Ruffles Dress. It's only $19.99!





I absolutely, positively, have to get this Tuxedo Dress for myself- only $29.99!



Well if I haven't convinced you yet than would a giveaway do it? DownEast Basics is giving one reader 2 great prizes! Your choice of a Woman's item and a girl's item. So it sounds great but the only catch is you will have to decide on only 2 items! It will be hard I promise!

To enter please visit DownEast Basics and tell me which items you would pick if you are the winner.

  105. I think I'd have to go with the Belle of the Ball Dress (I love the drop waist and the slouchy fit). And the Hopscotch Dress for my sweet little girl.

    DownEast Basics is such a great brand - stylish seasonal pieces at affordable prices!

    In the future, I'd love to see them design:
    (1) a classic denim pencil skirt in a dark wash
    (2) a stylish denim dark-wash jacket with a zipper
    (3) dark-wash denim trousers
    (4) V-neck cardigans in navy and forest green
    (5) a trench coat or pea coat in orange, turquoise, or navy
    (6) a basic black blazer
