Revamping Band Tees (Part Two)

Choker V-Neck

This look is very on-trend right now. It’s definitely the sassier, more risqué technique, but you can do a lot with this look, from layering with a strappy-front bralette underneath, to wearing a long laureate necklace over it.

Summer is well underway, and we all know what that means – it’s time to break out our speakers and start blasting our summer playlists. Whether you’re driving to the beach, laying out in the sun, going to shows, or just laying on your bedroom floor complaining about how hot it is, we all need some background music to get us in the summer spirit. Some of my best summer memories go hand in hand with my summer soundtrack, so here’s what’s on mine this year:

A Never Ending Dance With Depression

Have you ever woke up and found yourself in a deep narrow ditch, unsure if it’s the humidity of the dirt enclosing you or the sweat from being in such a compact space that makes it so hard to breathe?

A Reflection On 8123 Fest 2017

The Maine have been my favourite band and a gigantic chunk of sunshine in my life for a generous handful of years now, but for me 8123 fest was the point at which this whole thing started to feel more than just a band, but like a family.

Special Guest Blog: Joel's Thoughts on 8123 Impact

Let's talk about love. What comes to mind when you read that word? Maybe a song. Maybe a food you like. Maybe a fleeting, glamorized feeling that should actually be called infatuation. Whatever it is, I think we can agree that the word "love" is overused. It's all watered down. It's got no flavor anymore. So how are we even supposed to know what it is today?
