Hi! My name is Devon Hembury.

I am a twenty-something currently residing in my hometown of sunny San Diego. Seventeen Dresses is a diary of fashion, food, travel, home, and everything else that inspires me! My favorite things include: anything pink, gingham, or striped, brunch, coffee, pretty stationery, chips and guacamole, traveling, peonies, trying new restaurants, dresses, dogs, and La Croix.

My mother always used to tell me that I have “champagne taste on a beer budget”– which I admit is entirely true. Having a passion for shopping and being foodie on a post-grad, just-trying-to-pay-my-rent budget is no easy feat! Seventeen Dresses is all about budget friendly ideas and not having to sacrifice your savings account for style. On this blog you’ll find me re-wearing lots of my favorite pieces (because as much as I want to buy every adorable piece of clothing I see on Instagram…it’s just not possible), shopping at places like Marshalls, TJ Maxx, and J.Crew Factory, and basically just trying to keep it real.

Why Seventeen?

Seventeen has always been my lucky number. My birthday is the 17th, and somehow the number always ends up popping up in my life (it’s a little freaky how often it appears, actually). So, hopefully some luck will make its way into my blog! Thanks so much for stopping by!

    I really love your blog! I feel honored to be mentioned in your profile. Maybe you can feature me some time as a ” before and after” project. Haha (I like the name but there may be something out there even more perfect!! I’ll let you know if I come up with anything) love you
