MY OWN STYLE HAS NOT CHANGED IN 40 YEARS, NO MATTER HOW TIRED OR ILL I FEEL. I TRY TO WEAR DARK GREEN, DARK BROWN, DARK NAVY, BUT I PREFER BLACK.
I HATE WASTING TIME GETTING DRESSED. I LIKE TO PUT SOMETHING ON AND JUST THINK: “YES. THAT’S IT.”
WHEN I’M TIRED I LIKE TO DRESS VERY SIMPLY…
Sonia Rykiel who lived, in later life, with Parkinson’s Disease, 1930-2016.
“You know the greatest thing is passion, without it what have you got?
I mean if you love someone you can love them as much as you can love them but if it isn’t a passion, it isn’t burning, it isn’t on fire, you haven’t lived.”
"I have to make all my living as interesting to myself as my writing,"
Kathy Acker, 1947 - 1997.
“Black is modest and arrogant at the same time. Black is lazy and easy – but mysterious. But above all black says this:
"I don’t bother you – don’t bother me.”
I am the darker brother. They send me to eat in the kitchen
when company comes, but I laugh and I eat well, and I grow strong.
Tomorrow I'll Be at the table when company comes, nobody will dare say to me "eat in the kitchen" then.
Besides they'll see how beautiful I am and be ashamed.
Langston Hughes, I, Too, Am America
