Outfit: Down to St. James’

DSC_0155Okay, guys.  I’m gonna be honest here.  I kind of cheated with this outfit.DSC_0152DSC_0134.jpg

DSC_0171DSC_0176DSC_0116.jpgEvery now and then I get stuck in a little bit of a style rut.  I start wearing the same things so often that I can’t come up with new ways to wear them.  And then I’ll buy more of the same things and wonder why everything still feels the same.  So that’s why I bought myself a nice little Stitch Fix box.

If you’re not familiar with it, it’s a clothes subscription service where a stylist sends you five things to try on and you keep the stuff you like.  I felt like I needed some help getting out of my comfort zone, so I did it.  I feel a little guilty about it since this is a personal style blog and here I am paying for someone else to style me, but as with many things in life, sometimes you gotta know when to ask for help.

Anyway, when I got the box in the mail, I almost sent everything back without even trying any of it on.  None of it looked like “me.”  I decided to give everything a chance anyway, and I ended up keeping most of it!  Including this top, which is very much out of my “kind of vintage-y classic-y” style, but I love it nonetheless.

While I definitely can’t afford to get Stitch Fix boxes all the time, I think I might try to get one every now and then.  And I’m not even gonna feel bad about it.

What about you guys?  Do you ever get clothing subscription boxes?

  1. I haven’t tried Stitch Fix but I’m thinking I could use it for exactly the same reason!! It’s so easy to keep buying & wearing the same thing and I’d love to experiment a little bit more! And I absolutely love your blouse + your styling of it. Just darling!! Hope your week is off to a fabulous start, girly! xo

    1. I would totally recommend it if you’re looking for something a little different! They ask you how adventurous you want to be with the clothes they send you, so I said I wanted to be “very adventurous” and ended up with some really un-Devinne stuff, which was great. 🙂

    1. Thanks! I’ve used them before and was always pretty happy with what they sent over. They’re good at sending stuff I wouldn’t normally pick!

  2. I’ve never tried Stitch Fix, but a few of my good friends swear by it! Judging by this top, they do a great job. I’m a big believer in occasionally thinking outside your normal-style box, and a subscription service seems like a cool way to try doing just that.

    On another note, I *love* how you’ve captured my all-time favorite kind of lighting in this photo set!

    1. I’m glad you like the pictures! I’m so lucky I got that last shot because the sun rose too high right after I took it.

      And thank you for supporting my Stitch Fix choice. 🙂 I still feel kind of weird about it, but it was fun and ultimately worth it!
