Joyous Night

On May 25th, I finally saw Vance Joy live and it truly was a joyous night (pun intended). I have been a massive fan of his since 2013, aka when he first released his album titled God Loves You When You’re Dancing.

However, times have changed and now I am utterly and completely obsessed! My sense of style is always changing and thrift shops allow me to upgrade my closet whenever i’m getting … Continue reading Old Is The New, New?
