DownEast Dresses review and {GIVEAWAY!!}

I am really excited to be able to do another DownEast Basics giveaway. This time I was able to review two of their dresses. If you are on the search for modest, reasonably priced dresses then I have found the place for you. DownEast has a good selection of really cute dresses. Like this Wonderful World Dress:


Or this Take A Bow Dress.

The Connect the Dots Dress is a steal at only $29.99!!

I received the Get Spotted dress (this is Megan modeling the dress)





and loved them both. I actually wore the Serendipity Dress to my brother-in-law's wedding last weekend. It was a perfect dress for a special occasion like that because it is slightly dressier then most dresses, but not too dressy that I draw attention to myself. I felt really cute in it and it is now my favorite dress I own. My favorite part of the dress is that it has pockets. Pretty cool huh?



WIN IT!!

  87. Luv Luv Luv everything but my favs are, One of a kind top, L'Amour coat, Cream and Sugar skirt & Wonderful World dress. If I had a choice of which one to win and one that would flatter my figure the most it would have to be the Serendipity Dress. Luv it!
