Giveaway & Review: DownEast Basics! {CLOSED}

Looking for beautiful, well made clothes that won't break your budget? Check out DownEast Basics, a site that keeps fashion fabulous and affordable!

I love DownEast Basics because their clothes are fun and girly without being too over the top. They are also up on all the current styles: ruffles and the color of the season - purple!

Down East Basics recently sent me two of their new items to review: The Dancer Top in white is classic and goes with everything. I was able to wear this top with dress pants to work, and then with jeans when I went out with the girls for margaritas! It literally can and will take you from day to night with just a few changes. :) I love this top because it is soft, very comfortable and of course, very versatile. It had the feeling of a favorite t-shirt, but still looked dressed up. I especially loved the way the sleeves were slightly looser in the top and more fitted at the bottom. It was a pretty detail that really added to the top. And of course the ruffle detail on the top is delicate without being too much.
DownEast also sent me their very hot Vertical Zipper and Buckle Bag. It's awesome! It's big enough that I can fit everything I need for the day but not so big that I lose everything. It has lots of great compartments so I can keep all my small things (lipgloss, gum etc) together. But the best part is that the whole large compartment is zippered - something that is for me, totally essential, and surprisingly, (in my opinion) not enough bags have today!

DownEast has a ton of gorgeous accessories and not just great bags! They have a whole line of rhinestone rings, necklaces, earrings, bracelets and belts!

DownEast currently has a sale on their gorgeous dresses: all dresses are $25 or less!
Check out some of my favorites:

Also on sale are tops and skirts starting at $7 each! Woohoo! I'm picking out some things to order right now! :)
