DownEast Basics Steps Up Their Game

Frosted Flower Cardigan - $34.99

DownEast? Seriously? I would pay full price for this.... and that is saying something.

I am on my way to find one of these in stores. Right now.

I'll let you all know what I think of it in person.


  1. WOW!!!! That cardigan is gorgeous. I haven't heard of this website and I love it. Thank you for sharing all these wonderful websites. I ordered that camel cardigan you found for me at Overstock. Thanks again for your help.

  2. drool! i like. looks very j.crew-ish.

  3. So, I just ran and bought this. I tried on both colors, and decided on the light grey. And it's A-MAZ-ING, I would sleep in it if I didn't think it would crinkle the flowers.

    So, J.Crew! I heart my new favorite cardigan. So much.

    My prediction is that these will move fast, if you want one, snatch it up.

    And Rachel, I am glad you ordered one, I hope you love it!

  4. The grey cardigan is so cute - does it run true grey or is there some blue in it? Hard to tell from the web pic. How does the sizing run - TTS? I have a 34C chest but a small frame, so cardigans can be tricky to order online.

  5. This is completely adorable! Right now I'm trying to calculate a way to buy it...

  6. Sarah - I would say it isn't quite true grey, there is definetely a slight blue hue to it. And for those who are wondering the dark blue isn't as navy as the photo indicates... its a very dark grey/blue.

    I am a 32C with a small frame and the Small size fit me best. I ended up buying a medium though because they didn't have a small in the light grey. The medium fits pretty well through the sleeve bust and hip, just a little big in the waist. I would say, that in accordance with other things I have bought at DownEast, it's pretty true to size.

    Hope that helps!

  7. very pretty. very feminine. can't wait to see you in it.

  8. it's very cute. although i can't get over how awkward that blonde model looks. also, i'd check it out in person. from personal experience, downeast brand seems to have good initial ideas, but always ends up being slightly off the mark.

  9. Liz- That blond model looks so awkward, it's crazy. But, I really do feel like the DownEast hit the nail on the head this time. I got the cardigan and am totally pleased.
