:: Review and Giveaway - DownEast Basics

So, I've said this a million times.
I love DownEast Basics.
It was love at first sight when I discovered it 5 years ago
and I've been shopping there ever since.
So I made a little trip to the closet and counted how many items I have of theirs.
Ummm.
Let's see.
6 dresses. 3 skirts. 7 tops. 2 pants. 3 sweaters. 3 swimsuits.
See. Love them.
I love their affordability, style, quality, and that the clothing is actually modest!
They also have adorable accessories, swimsuits, girls clothing, and items for the home.
So, needless to say, I was so excited to find out that I'd be doing a review of an item
and then do a giveaway for one of my lovely readers.
Aren't you?!
I was checking out their new arrivals and absolutely loved
this dress here.
My hubby would definitely have to take me out to a fancy, shmancy restaurant in this.

Also loved this top here.
I might wear this for a fun girls night out.

And this skirt here.
Ummm. Could I wear this all the time?

Oh, decisions, decisions.
Well, I finally chose this sweater here.
Perfect for the Fall weather that has been creeping around my little city.

I tried it out yesterday and loved it.
I wore it to church and paired it with a black pencil skirt and gray top.
{I'm terrible at the self-portraits. Obviously.}





Then I paired it with their skinny jeans and a white tank top.
If you know me personally, then you know that I'm not the model type.
{I try to do serious poses and looks and then just start laughing.}
So there you have it. I might be their biggest fan.
{And I really would like them to open one up in
Temecula, California . . . please, pretty please?}
One lucky person will get their favorite item for Fall.
Here are the rules:
Mandatory entry
