DownEast Basics: A Great Day for a Giveaway~

Hello my dear readers!! I am soooo excited for today's giveaway I can hardly stand it!! One of my very favorite clothing companies is DownEast Basics. I freely admit that most of what I wear is purchased there. Because not only are there clothes ADORABLE...they are AFFORDABLE as well. So when DownEast contacted me and asked if I would review one of their pieces and do a giveaway, I was thrilled. Here I am wearing the Pageant Top. I love this top because of it's assymetrical design and the fun ruffle detail! Not to mention the fact that the icy blue color made my eyes "pop"! (note to self: wear blue more often!) Here's just a small sample of the other great pieces that DownEast Basics is offering right now...
One of my very favorites...the Frosted Flowers cardi.



I love the blossom detail on the Rosy Cheeks skirt. Whimsical but elegant at the same time!



Love this vintage lace skirt...so romantic and fun!



Another favorite... the Round and Round tank. It would be fabulous with a pair of jeans and some flirty heels this summer!



Perfect for spring, this Flowerful top just makes me smile.




Here's the fun part...DownEast Basics has offered to give one reader of the Shabby Nest their choice of items from DownEast's New Arrivals! To enter just visit the New Arrivals section of their site, then come back and tell me which piece is your favorite!


For extra entries, follow DownEast Basics on Twitter, or Like them on Facebook. For extra entries to qualify, you must leave one additional comment for each. Drawing is open until Friday, April 1 at 11:59 MST. Drawing open to US residents only.


Good luck!!

Ok so I quit entering giveaways a long time ago because it takes time and I never win because there are so many entries, BUT for downeast basics I am entering. I have several of their pieces I love. I bought a swimsuit there last fall on sale and can't wait to wear it this summer! Just yesterday a gal at church wore the rosy cheeks skirt and I had to ask her where she got it and she said downeast and then I see it on your blog. I love that skirt. I also love the white cardi (forgot the name of it). Crossin my fingers I win.

Linda said...

Thanks for the giveaway and THANKS for introducing me to DownEast! I love all of their asymetrical tops. Just had a mastectomy and always feel just a little 'uneven' so that would be a perfect cover for me!
