Giveaway & Review: DownEast Basics ! {CLOSED}

Remember my fun DownEast Basics Giveaway from a few weeks ago? Well guess what? My friends at DownEast Basics are giving one lucky Frugal & Fabulous reader another chance to win!

I was recently sent their beautiful frosted flower cardigan. The frosted flower cardigan is so cute! It's fun, flirty and totally fresh for spring! What better way to welcome warm weather than in a hot hue like this?! This cardi is the perfect pink and as soon as I saw it I knew I had to have it! How cute would this be to wear to an Easter brunch, a bridal/baby shower or to a garden party?! I just love the feminine detailing of the flowers (look really close and you can see they are individually stitched!)

I was also sent the He Loves Me dress.. It's very different from what I normally wear but I picked it because it has a very carefree feel to it. I love that I can dress it up with a cardigan and heels for work or dress it down with sandals for play. The colors keep it lighthearted and the dress itself has almost a 60's mod undertone. It's great because it's easy to throw on and looks great with minimal accessorizing! My only problem is deciding what color heels to wear with it? (I'm open to ideas!) I believe some shopping is in order! ;)

I am continuously blown away with the new styles offered by Down East Basics every month! Their clothes have a wonderful style to them that is flattering and comfortable. I recommend them to any woman who wants clothes that look great without breaking the bank!

You find the neatest things. I had never heard of DownEast Basics before I read about it on your blog. I am really liking the Stroke of Art Skirt - it's different and just looks like SPRING! (Something I am very ready for after today!) So cute.
