#haul: downeast basics surprise !

Hello, hello!

Usually when I'm home from school for a holiday, I like to shop. Not only do I have transportation to farther shopping places, but I usually find better deals than I do around school!

My mom and I went to a store that just opened near our local Marshall's called Downeast Basics. I've heard of this store before--there used to be one in the shopping center near my house next to a casino--but that store only held their own clothes. Apparently, this Downeast Basics also carried out-of-season/style name brand clothes (but are name brand clothes nevertheless!). So I was excited to check out what was in stock.

After finding my way to the back of the store where the clothes are (the store also sells super cute furniture!), I stumbled across racks of Anthropologie, Free People, and PacSun clothing. I didn't find anything worthwhile in the Anthropologie rack, but I found some cute things in the other two racks.

The first thing I found was this Free People bralette. The original price was $119 and was selling for $24.99, but I scored it for $7.50! Although it is "out of style" for Free People, it is definitely in style for me and something I look forward to wearing. I'm imagining a high-waisted hi-low pinkish skirt I own to go with this bralette. Or even just a plain black skater skirt.

The second thing I found was this striped crop top. It's not too fancy, but it was definitely a good find. I found it in the PacSun rack. The brand is Kirra. Originally priced at $89, on sale for $11.99, and bought for $5.50, it was such a good deal. I could not resist. A pair of high-waisted shorts or a skater skirt would look good with it.

I didn't know that a store that seemed so "adult-y" could have good deals and items for the wannabe hipster/stylish youth such as myself. If you have one of these stores, Downeast Basics or any other adult-y stores, in the area, you should check it out and see what deals you can find! Expect the unexpected! :)
