DownEast Basics Review + Giveaway


Today I am stoked to offer a giveaway from DownEast Basics. They also asked me to review a piece from their new arrivals.

They sent me the reporter dress:


(Dress - c/o DownEast | Belt - Inherited from Grandma | Shoes - Kohl's - $17 | Bracelet - San Fran Street Vendor - $5)


The dress is a made of a minty jersey knit and is super easy to wear. It also has the wonderful bonus of fantastic nursing access without having to wear a tank to cover cleavage that most cross front dresses put on display. Though I am planning to sew a snap in at the bust just to make sure I don't accidentally flash anyone. It fits true to size and will definitely be part of my regular Sunday lineup. It's a wee bit clingy, so you might want to wear it with a slip.


(Reporter Dress - $36.99)

DownEast Basics is being generous enough to let the winner pick their favorite thing from their new arrivals to take home.

Here are the rules:

You can enter in either way listed below. Your entry must be notified in the form of a comment on the blog. One entry only, please.

Make sure your first name and a valid email address so I can contact you if you win. The winner will be determined by giving each entry a number and using random.org to select the winning number.

The Giveaway ends on Sunday, February 5, at 10 PM (Central Time).

Good luck.
