MY REVIEW

flower path top

I am totally in love with the whole fabric flower/ruffle craze and DownEast has some fantastic new items that are so feminine and beautiful. My favorite new item is the Flower Path Top, which I wear as much as possible – I love the fun yellow color and the beautiful and soft flowers that give this top something special.

Each flower is made from the same fabric as the t-shirt and also has some netting thrown in of the same color – it has inspired me to try making my own flower path top – if my attempt is successful, you’ll hear more on that later…

DownEast is definitely one of my go-to stores for fashionable tops and layering basics because they fit my long torso just right. They always have a great selection of sizes and colors, and I love ALL of the new arrivals. Which one is your favorite??

Thanks DownEast!
