So now you know.
AND I can be quite the prep. Especially when it comes to fashion. I like classic pieces and polo shirts and argyle sweaters.
Am I becoming harder and harder to pigeonhole as the days go by or what? I think that is how I’ve always been. Even in high school. I never had a particular “group,” per se. I had dramatic friends and rocker friends and athletic friends and student council friends and…well, in many ways, everyone was my friend (and I liked it that way). I try to be the same way today – meaning we totally don’t have to always think alike and we can still be friends.
On to the topic of this post: CLOTHES (that are reasonably priced).
Check out these items from DownEast Basics, a company that specializes in modest, stylish fashions at affordable prices:
- School Belle Top, $26.99
- Short Story Sweater, $29.99
- Uptown Cord Skirt, $34.99
DownEast Basics primarily caters to women in sizes XS-XXL (0-18), but they also have maternity clothing, men’s clothing, plus size clothing, and clothing for little girls (sizes 4-12, see examples below).
Most of the DownEast Basics pieces range in price from $9.99-$36.99, but you can find items as low as $5.00 in the sale section! That sounds just about right for my pocketbook.
Here’s me in the school belle top and short story sweater:
My take on DownEast Basics is that they offer pretty pieces at great prices. These aren’t, however, “closet staples” that will withstands years of wear. I would describe them as “seasonal” pieces – for example, let’s say you want to pick up a new, trendy top or two for the summer that won’t break the bank. DownEast Basics is a great “go-to” shop for that kind of thing.
