Thanks to a FABULOUS hook-up by Ashley at Cute As A Fox, Madison and I were invited to a night of shopping on Down East Basics of the ArrowHead Mall.
By accident we were BOTH fitted with $25 gift cards. When I realized that they gave Maddie girl her own, I swiftly gave it back explaining that she was not a blogger, but my 13yr old daughter. About 5 minutes later the gift card was re-presented to Madds with a smile. The darling lady who put on this even wanted Madison to shop and tell us what she thought too :0) Fine! We will take the money! No arm twisting tonight!
Madison will tell her opinion by the expression on her face. She loved every minute! I must say that the store was very pleasant to shop at. The ladies that worked there were super friendly, the store was clean, and the clothes are incredibly adorable.
Please, nobody tell Down East that we already love to shop there and they didn't need to pay us to say that :0) When we are up in St. George, Utah visiting grandma, we secretly wait until she falls asleep and then run for the car keys. The Down East outlet is usually first on our list. Madison's personal favorite are the cozy undershirts they sell there.
Me, I love the lace...and the ruffles! Man do they know how to do lace and ruffles!
If you are into the vintage feel, you have to check them out!!!
These two need to come home with me. They were so fabulous I kept just walking by and gawking. Every once in a while I would stop to caress the soft fabric, running my finger along the stitching. So adorable!
Did I mention that they sell accesories too!?!
Check out this wall-o-fabulous!
It is full of necklaces, hair bows and wraps, bracelets and everything else you never knew you NEEDed.
They also sell accessories for little girls. Darling bracelets, necklaces, hair things and such.
Down East has recently started carrying little girl clothes too. This ruffly jacket is on Emmalee's list.
Have I mentioned that you can shop online? You can check them out at www.downeastbasics.com. Many of the tops you will find are even under $20.
How cute is that? A ruffle heart. Down East, you ruffle my heart :0)
This clutch purse was calling my name all night. I ended up letting Madison spend BOTH of our cards, but I may need to go back for this little lady. She was DARLING!
So, if you are in the mood for a little wardrobe infussion, check out Down East Basics either in store or online. The clothes are gorgeous, from fit to color, and they are good quality at a great price.
Thanks again Down East for the shopping trip!
