"Gimme a whiskey, ginger ale on the side. And don't be stingy, baby."

“ The pursuit of style has always been a spirited part of the work process. Images that inform the work or the movement of the work process. Baudelaire’s cravat. June Christie’s careless pony tail. A raincoat a la Camus. Bob Dylan’s snap tab collar. Black capris like Ava Gardner. Discarded finery from rich heaps. Italian sunglasses. Green silk stockings. Ballet slippers. Boxer shoes. A sense of style. A certain body language. A simple, intricate gesture. More often than not, bred from innocence, awkwardness or pure survival. “ –Patti Smith, Patti Smith Complete
