I recently went with a group of bloggers to an event at Down East Basics. I’ll be honest, I’ve been to the mall several times and hadn’t even remembered what DownEast Basics was. When I got the invitation to come to this event though and was able to find out more about the store, I was really excited because this store sounded like it was made just for me. They offer casual dressy clothes at affordable prices.
There were so many cute clothes in the store, it seemed that I took forever to make decisions! One thing you should know about me and shopping is I like to take my time to make sure I can make an educated decision on my purchases. Also of course, I want to make sure I am getting the best for my money! I was happy to find tops priced around $20 and skirts around $30. The colors were all neutral which I felt made it really easy to mix and match tops to bottoms. I also felt that everything had a way of matching eachother, making it easy to put a few outfits together that you could interchange. I really loved their dresses but they didn’t seem to have many in store that I liked. I decided to look online later at there dress selection (see below).
I was also excited to find they had a clearance section and course if you know me, you know I can’t resist a jewelry section and I loved all of the choices Down East had to offer:
After shopping here, I would say you could easily put together a few interchangable outfits (skirts, tops and accessories) for under $100.
So what did I end up getting? This cute lace top that was priced around $26!
I also bought a cute necklace that somehow missed being in this photo. I felt it could go with any colors and accessories I felt like pairing them with.
After shopping in store, I wanted to check out their selection online.
Here is what I found:
This would be cute with a cardigan.
Clearance tops starting at $9.99!
This cute rose dress for only $39.99! They also had more cute dresses online then I found in store http://www.downeastbasics.com/dresses.aspx
Also, adorable and affordable scarves that I didn’t seem to notice in store. Of course I could have just been too busy having fun and probably over looked them!
They also have a Home Section! http://www.downeastbasics.com/home.aspx
I was given a giftcard by DownEast Basics but was not asked to do a post, all thoughts and opinions are my own.
