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!

For those of you who aren't familiar with them, DownEast Basics is a great source for affordable and fashionable clothing.

I was recently given the opportunity to review their new Marina bag from their bag boutique and I love it! It's so 'boho chic!' Though I'm typically a black handbag girl - I thought this little number would be the perfect way to lighten up for spring/summer! And it definitely is! I love this bag because its classic, but has a bit of a funky edge with the rosette and side pull details. The bag itself is fully lined (with zippered pockets!) and is big enough for me to cart my life to and from the store, the office, or out on the town!

I'm a major DownEast Basics fan because I love that they combine fashion with style and sophistication. They focus on keeping their clothing beautiful, comfortable and affordable! And it's made to last! Because really, in my clothing and accessories, I don't just want a deal - I want something that will last longer than a season! I also love that their is timeless and can be both fresh and "grown up"!

Some of my favorite new arrivals on their web site: (click for links!)


The best part? Many of DownEast's items are under $20 ea! Awesome!

Also DownEast Basics currently has tops and skirts on sale starting at $5-$7 each! Woohoo! :)
