[Stevie liked Janis Joplin's] look so much that she traveled to San Francisco to try to duplicate it at the Velvet Underground, a store where Joplin and Jefferson Airplane's Grace Slick bought their clothes.
"It was a
tiny little store, but it had the most beautiful things," Nicks recalls.
"Tunic tops that came down to your mid-thigh, and evening gown, old-lady
nightgown material bell-bottoms that weren't really wide, but instead fell straight
over a really high boot. It was in that room where I thought 'Wow! These are the
kind of clothes I am going to wear forever.'"
