I'm a huge fan of Sufjan Stevens, and really, who isn't? His record, Illinois, blew me away when I first heard it, and it still ranks high as one of the best albums I've heard in the past 5 years. So when I heard he was coming to my town, I got really excited... and when I went online to get tickets, my heart sank because I found out it had sold out in a hot second. Luckily, thanks to my dear friends, I was able to get in last minute, and caught his last three songs. Phenomenal. After the show, I was hanging out with my friends Hannah and Sophie, and we were talking about how it would be really cool if the band wanted to come back to Sophie's gallery, RISE, have some wine, and look through our huge vintage sale that we had earlier that day. Sophie went up to the merch guy, mentioned we had a ton of sweet vintage right down the road, and he immediately called over the girl in Sufjan's band, Nedelle, to tell her all about it. She was very excited, and we took off in my little 1985 jetta with her, her drummer, and Sophie & Hannah. Nedelle got a lot of great vintage, as well as some AMAZING jewelry that Hannah made, and the next night in New York City, she wore an item from the Grandma June collection- a beautiful pale pink shirt with strips of lace down the front, and buttons up the back. Here are some pictures!
