DownEast Basics Blogger Event

Last month I attended a lovely blogger event at my local DownEast Basics store. They invited myself, and some other sweet, local blogger ladies to check out the store, mingle, and pick out something pretty to take home.

The store was filled with tons of cute, new styles, and I had a lot of fun picking out a few pieces to try on. I've only previously shopped/check out this store a few times, so it was nice to go in and check it out again in a fun atmosphere.

Scott attended the event with me and was my trusty photographer through the event (he's such a sweet guy). He was really good about telling me what he liked, and what he thought would look flattering on me. In the end, I went with his pick of this grey, ruffle skirt, which I wore in Monday's posts.

At the event I got to meet the ladies that run the sweet blog, Fancy House Road. Camberley, Keighley, and Kiersten and I actually all went to the same high school, but didn't realize it until after we had met. We graduate about a year or two a part, but it was so neat to meet some fellow Toros (our school's mascot).

Overall I had a really great time at the DownEast Basics event and will definitely be stopping back in again to check out all of the sweet designs they have for fall! Thanks for having me, DownEast Basics!

Have you ever shopped at DownEast Basics before?

  1. That looks like so much fun. How do you get involved in such things? XO, Rae

  2. Your title caught my eye because I've only ever heard the word "DownEast" refer to a specific part of Maine - the part I'm from, actually. :) Everyone else looks at me like an idiot when I say that word! How funny that it's a store. :)

  3. OOOo so jealous! wish I could have been there!

  4. I love that store, so many cute things :)

  5. Rae- I was emailed by the person putting on the event!

    Courtney- This particular store is located at Superstition Springs mall!
