DownEast Basics Review & Giveaway

Share

Are you an online shopper? If so, you'll want to check out a site I stumbled across a few months ago called DownEast Basics. I fell in love w/ the affordable trendy clothing, accessories, & bags that they offer. DownEast Basics was kind enough to offer one lucky Gift Closet reader any new item of your choice from their new arrival section!! Here are a few of my favorites!

Don't you think this "Gourmet Garden" Skirt is just gorgeous?Love this Black & Silver Bib Necklace for only $12.99!

I think this Frosted Flowers Cardigan is perfect for Fall!
I received this Floral Fantasy Tank in White to review!

The scoop....

Floral Fantasy Tank

$24.99
  • Bubble hem blousy tank.
  • Chiffon flowers around neckline.
  • Imported.
  • Available in Bright Blush and White
  • XS-XXL.
  • Hand wash or dry clean for best care


What I like about DownEast Basics & my Floral Fantasy Tank:
1. I love that all their pieces are trendy and affordable!
2. I like that a lot of the clothing is available in different colors to choose from.
3. Site is easy to navigate.
4. I'm always leery of shopping online because I am not sure what size to order. I used their sizing chart and it was fairly accurate. It was slightly tight in the bust, but fit great every place else.

What I didn't like about DownEast Basis & the Floral Fantasy tank:
1. The piece I originally ordered I never received due to it being out of stock. I then ordered a new piece and it came fairly quickly once it did ship. I was not a paying customer, so I feel certain a paying customer would receive their product in a more timely manner. The tank was worth the wait though. :)

I love the Keepsake Cardigan in white, size XL or XXL...I am pregnant, and in the fall months this would be great to layer over some dresses I have that I wouldn't be confident wearing by themselves.

brandy said...

I entered the Klassy Kouture giveaway! That dress would be adorable on my 7 month old, and maybe on the next one, if it turns out to be a girl (fingers crossed!)

What I like best about The Gift Closet is that it features products that I may not have seen elsewhere. Perfect example being the adorable dresses at Klassy Kouture. They just don't sell these types of products in my local stores!
