{DownEast Basics Vintage Looks, Modern Style Line + GIVEAWAY!}

The Chicks are huge fans of DownEast Basics clothing!  Right now they have a new line that mixes vintage looks and modern style.

I can’t get enough of their new jackets.  Love them all but my favorite was their Union Jacket.  I was lucky enough to get to sample one of these babies for spreading the word of their new line.  I love how the Union Jacket fits.  I love that it is light weight and simply adorable! (Who wouldn’t love those buttons!)

I am loving their embelished shirts and sweaters.  Flowers on shirts make me happy.  You could dress up these shirts for your holiday parties that are just around the corner.

    Thanks for introducing me to DownEast Basics. I’ve never heard of them until now. I went crazy looking at all the awesome stuff on their website. It’s so hard just to choose one thing because everything they have is so beautiful and stylish. However, if I have to choose it would be the Perfect Peplum Jacket- Heather Grey. I’m a big fan of hoodies. Thanks for the giveaway!

    the sophistication dress is so adorable – and would be perfect for thanksgiving! it looks so comfy yet dressy enough for dinner.

  35. Kimberly says

  37. Dawn Damron says

    I have to say–not to copy :)–but I love the union jacket in black and I love the skip to my lou wrap top/jacket. Both would be fun and different to wear. I’ve loved their clothes for years. I go to their store in Cedar City whenever we visit family. Thanks for the Giveaway!!!

  41. Deb Pouliot says

    What a range of choice!! I have to say the simple silouette dress would just be classic and flattering on any body type…yet it has a little update with the embellishment of flowers. Definitely a favorite…but then there are many. (Do agree about the jackets too…especially the union jacket.
