DownEast Basics review and {GIVEAWAY!!}

I am always looking for cute, affordable, modest clothing and I found the perfect place. DownEast Basics has everything I have been looking for. They have a great variety of clothes and everything is really reasonably priced. The first thing I noticed on their website were their skirts. They are all so adorable! I was able to review the Sabbatical Skirt and I love it! I wanted this skirt because I felt like it could be dressed up with a nice shirt and heels or I could wear it more casually with a t-shirt and flip-flops. In the summertime I prefer wearing skirts over anything else because they keep me the coolest (and if you haven't noticed, I am always super cool).
I also got to review this Collegiate Sweater. I like this sweater and think it will be perfect in the wintertime when it is just a little cooler. I haven't had a chance to wear it out yet as it is still pretty hot here in the south. It is made out of 100% cotton and is pretty heavy. I think it would be perfect to wear on a cooler fall day to keep warm while still looking cute.
In addition to Women's clothing, DownEast also has Men's, Maternity, and little girl's lines. I was able to review two little girl's skirts so I got the two cutest little girls I could find and had them be my models. Here is my niece Linley wearing the Dress Up skirt. I love the design on it.
And here is Graham's playmate (he's into older women) Rebekah in the Darling Dots skirt. Soooo adorable. She makes everything look cute though.

  1. I would LOVE all of these items, and single one of them would brighten my day. BUT, if I was being forced to choose one it would have to be the sweater. I am loving the sweater!

  15. I love their serendipity dress! But of the items they're offering, I'd have to go with the sabbatical skirt. It's too cute to pass up!
