11 Favourite Quotes From Stranger Things | Eleven T-shirt & Vintage Levi's Denim Jacket

When Stranger Things 3 went live on Netflix earlier this month, I knew I would be unable to start bingeing on it on its first day out due to travelling. Sure, I could've just started watching it on my iPhone, but a big part of the show's attraction is the gorgeous visuals so that would be …
