Mommy's Favorite Things: DownEast Basics Review & Giveaway

DownEast Basics Review & Giveaway




I've done a couple reviews for DownEast Basics in the past. Their motto is Affordable and Fashionable Clothing. And it's so true. I love their quality clothes and I've never had a problem with any of them. I have some that I've had for over a year and they are still like new. I wear them all the time!

This time, I chose another New Arrival Top from DownEast. I chose the Pearl Girl Top in a small. 
I probably could've sized up on this one, but it's alright. 

I chose that color, the Moonstruck, but they also have it in Bleached Sand (below)


I love the pearls at the top, they go all around the top and on the back, which I really like. It's not very basic at all. I love the touch on the sleeves as well.

The bottom portion looks a little funny on me because it comes right across my little pouch, so it doesn't lay exactly right, but It's still very cute. 

I can't wait to wear it more since spring is coming and I think I'll wear it to my family's Easter dinner. 

I've worn it twice so far, washed it once. None of the pearls came off, it didn't shrink and it didn't get all 'pilly' as they call it. Nothing is wrong with it after washing. It's still perfect!

I almost chose the Floral Fantasy Top

And I also love the Sunday Best Dress


I love DownEast Basics. Every month they come out with new arrivals. Usually 10 or more! So there's always something new and exciting there. 

They also have a girls section. Don't know if I ever mentioned that or not, but they have some super cute things there and I hope to review a piece or two one day!



Super cute!

Price: The top I received is $25. Very reasonable! That last girls dress is $25. They are all reasonable prices. The women's dress up there is $40! You can't find a high quality item for that price in the store. It just doesn't happen. 

Overall: *****


 *Disclaimer* I received these products directly from the company for Review. I was not paid to try out these products*
A Big Thank you goes out to DownEast Basics for allowing me to review this product!
