DownEast Basics Girls Clothing Review & Giveaway

Posted by Jenna | Tuesday, November 15, 2011




As you may have read yesterday, I am a huge fan of DownEast Basics! Offering high-design and trendy fashions at low prices, they offer something for everyone. Their clothing line includes cute tops, skirts, dresses, accessories and more to enhance any woman's wardrobe. Not only that, but I recently learned they also have a a great collection of girl's clothing as well!

I love finding high quality, fashionable styles for Kaelyn at affordable prices. That's why I was excited to find DownEast Basics cute girl's line of clothing and couldn't have been happier to learn we were going to have the opportunity to review something. Browsing threw their new arrivals, it was a difficult decision picking just one item. They are all so adorable! We finally decided on the Rock and Roll Skirt and I'm so glad we did.

When the skirt arrived, I was immediately impressed with the stylish look. This denim skirt has distressed details and a contrast pinstripe lining. We were sent the skirt in a dark wash which really goes nicely with many of the things Kaelyn wears.

When Kaelyn caught eye of the cute skirt, she was begging to try it on. She is our girly girl and adores anything to do with skirts and dresses. When she first put it on, I thought it was a little bit large. Looking closer at the waistband though, I found a hidden adjustable elastic waistband which allowed us to fit it to her small waist perfectly. I love this feature and wish all skirts and pants offered it for kids her age! This is definitely a skirt she'll be able to grow with over the next year (or longer), which I really appreciate.

No matter what she wears with it, it always looks great! As with any jean skirt, it's easy to dress up or down and according to her...is also very comfortable.

I've been very happy with the Rock & Roll Skirt from DownEast Basics! The quality is incredible, and the style and comfort can't be beat. I definitely plan on visiting the DownEast Basics girl's line of clothing and would recommend anyone with girls to check it out too.
