Back To Basics – A Visit to DownEast Basics
So you all know I like to save money. But I have to admit that sometimes it’s hard when it comes to clothing. I’m not gonna lie – I like nice stuff. Now, I’m not talking about designer duds or anything but I do love me some Banana Republic and Anthropologie. Aside from the clearance rack, I’m not going to find any bargains at either place.
Well, I’m happy to tell you that I found a shop that sells cute clothing at great prices – DownEast Basics.
Have you ever heard of it? To tell you the truth, I never had until last week. I checked out the only SoCal location at the Irvine Spectrum and was smitten with what I found. Lots and lots of cute clothes at inexpensive prices. Seriously. Much of their clothing is priced in the $20-30 range (with some a little lower, some a little higher) and they’ve got a great variety of colorful basics. Plus, they sell accessories and girl’s clothing.
I was enamored with much of the stuff and grabbed a mountain to try on. I came away with a cute top for $24.99 and a dress for what I thought was $19.99. When I checked out, I learned it was only $7. $7! For a dress! What a score!
And since I’m so proud of my super bargain I’m going to show you what it looks like. On me. Yes folks, this is a first. I’m actually going to model something for you.
Pretty nice huh?
full disclosure: I was invited to a party at DownEast Basics and was given a $25 gift card. All opinions are my own.
