Down East Basics Review and Giveaway


Contest is Closed.
For seventeen years I have bought cute outfits for the kids and not myself. When family members would give me money for my birthday or Christmas, they'd inform me, "Spend this on you and not the kids!"

I did have a lovely work wardrobe which always garnered compliments. When I quit I relaxed my standards to casual clothes and explained I didn't need as many new clothes. As I have began to work part time outside the home again, I felt a need to "step up my wardrobe."

DownEast Basics is helping me rejuvenate my wardrobe with fashionable and affordable clothes. I love basic black clothing. It goes with anything and is always in style. With my new cardigan, I can dress it up for work or keep it casual. It's made of comfortable cotton and comes in sizes XS-XXL
It's super cute, which is why I'm hiding it from my daughter. This sweater is all mine!



Buy It!
You can purchase from Down East Basics wide selection of trendy clothing online.

Win It!
One person will receive an item of their choice from DownEast Basics new arrivals line.

Contest Rules:

o Go for a layered fall look
o Be creative and show your best style
o Incorporate at least one DownEast clothing item or accessory – but the more the better!

DownEast will select the top five “looks” from submitted photos; the ones chosen will be featured in an upcoming DownEast by Design blog! Even better, for the look deemed best overall, the model will receive a DownEast Basics gift card valued at $150!

Looks will be evaluated based on overall style, creativity, and best/most use of DownEast Basics clothing and accessories. Now is the time to layer those DownEast tees, slide on one of our skirts in new fabrics for fall, and last but not least-accessories! Don’t forget handbags, necklaces, scarves and more!

  95. I can't believe I've never heard of this company, as I think their clothes are great! I also just assumed that it was a Maine-based company (the coastal area where I lived was called Down East) so I was surprised to see that their stores are mostly out west!
