This Holiday season if you’re looking to buy clothing that is affordable, chic and something that will last longer than just a few weeks, check out Down East Basic.
DownEast Basics 2010 holiday gift guide rings in the official start of the holiday shopping season. The new, 60-plus page catalog offers shoppers style and savings at every turn – everything in the gift guide is under $60. Shoppers can find something for everyone on their list – including themselves – with accessories like the jewelry, totes and scarves featured in the “Silver Belles & Bows” and “All That Glitters” sections. Also find a full new line of dresses and embellished skirts that make any occasion special at the holidays.
I was fortunate to have the opportunity to review the Oh La La Overcoat in Gunmetal on a recent “whole day out in the windy and cold weather” outing we took with Bunny girl and Bunny Boo. So yes, I did have the opportunity to really live out my overcoat thanks to the weather!
Having said that, I have to profess my love for this cotton fleece button front jacket that is washable, comfortable and very elegant looking especially when paired with dark blue jeans and a colorful scarf or a colorful polo necked top.
The gift catalog has more for you to choose from. Here are some Down East Basics’ recommendations:
- Stuffing a stocking or buying for a “Secret Santa” at work? Flip no further than the first two pages of the guide with its “All that Glitters” and “Silver Belles & Bows” sections featuring stylish gifts like the Mini Crystal Bead Earrings ($6.99), Fabric Covered Bead Necklace ($9.99) and Chic & Shimmer Scarf ($9.99). Give these items separately or mix and match them and “wrap” into a tote like the small and formal Single Rose Clutch ($14.99) or everyday Pleat and Pucker Bag ($22.99) for a colleague’s gift or something special for a child’s teacher.
- Choose something for Mom from DownEast’s collection of stylish, fashion- forward cardigans like the Bon Nuit Cardigan (long sleeve with ruffle front detail – $36.99) or the Box Pleat Cardi (3/4 sleeve button-front cardigan with box pleat neckline detail – $36.99). She’ll wear these year round!
- Where would any woman be without her girlfriends? If anyone understands style it’s sure to be them! Show appreciation for both style and friendship with the vintage lace Tea Time Skirt ($32.99) or the flowering Bouquet Skirt (wide waistband features appliqué flowers in self fabric on side hip – $36.99). Unsure of an exact size? Give a skirt that will fit like a charm and show you care about design with the Tiny Tiers Skirt (style secret: elastic waistband), which features tiers of tulle ($34.99).
- Dress little girls up for some fun this holiday with DownEast’s “Very Merry Mini Gift Guide for Girls,” featuring the Winter Wish Dress ($29.99), Pretty Party Dress ($26.99) and Long Sleeve Jane Tee ($8.99) among several other cute pieces for the little ones.
Oh and stay tuned for a DownEast Basics giveaway soon!
You can buy the Oh La La Overcoat in Gunmetal for 42.99 US$.
