"I've always liked long, flowing clothes. I used to rummage around in my grandmother's trunks trying to find them.
I love the feeling of chiffon and lace."
Stevie Nicks in Record Mirror May 20th, 1989
"Check this out [holds up the black dress from the Rumours cover].
It does that fabulous bat-wing sleeve thing.
I told the girl who makes this stuff that
I wanted to look like an English urchin, something from 'A Tale of Two Cities,'
and the idea of the sleeves came from a picture I saw of [silent-film actress] Vilma Banky.
My first house belonged to her, and her sleeves were very long.
Stevie Nicks in Harpers Bazaar, 1997
"I'm the original hunter-down-of-fabulous-things.
Twenty years ago I sat down and decided
that I would create a really wonderful image, an unforgettable image.
And now I'm kind of stuck with it.
When I don't wear my fringy, gypsy stuff, people kind of look at me like,'What's wrong?'
Stevie Nicks in Toronto Sun, August 14, 1997
"I kind of live in an aura of atmosphere, you know...
I can't really live without atmosphere. So when I'm on stage I try to create an
atmosphere for every song."
on Entertainment Tonight, 1983
"In one of those first shows when Lindsey and I went on the road,
I saw this woman walk by, and she was wearing a mauve chiffon layered midiskirt
and high platinum cream-colored suede boots. I thought, 'I want to be her.'
So when I joined Fleetwood Mac and I had some money, I went to a lady and I said,
I want you to make me a raggy chiffon skirt that looks sort of like an urchin on the
wharves of London."
Stevie Nicks in Us Magazine, January, 1998
"Everyone else changes. I don't change."
