When you gaze at stars and think about planets, the places it takes your imagination are amazing!

John Millington Synge
I still got a lot to learn about fashion. I'm somebody who experiments, somebody who's finding their way.

If I feel crazy, then I'm gonna rock something crazy.

William T. Vollmann
