    OMG – I thought the same thing when I saw the Vice trailer…had to rewatch to be sure. And Sam Rockwell looks like he’s gonna nail W!
    Looking forward to the movie!

    I still have my precious Exile in Guyville cassette. What an impact that album made on me. Specifically when I was working in a corporate office that had a major “boys club”. I would listen to it practically every AM during my long commute to hype myself up to “face the music”… So thanks for this link, Kim. I enjoyed it tremendously and sent it to my dear friend; we saw Liz together back in the day in our hometown Chicago.

    Yes, the Nili Lotan little blazer is aces, to borrow Kim’s word, but take a look at the pants it’s shown with. I’ve been a dedicated wide leg trouser wearer forever, and I finally scored a pair of NL Inez pants from Barney’s website at 80% off at the end of a season. They are the sexiest, slouchiest, most flattering pants ever. Since I have the one-is-never-enough disease, I’ll be stalking another pair in a different color or fabric.

    Love the movie soundtrack links, but I’d move Purple Rain to #1!

    These are all great! Love the red booties and pinstripe blazer. Why on earth have you NOT purchased these items?? Dear Kim, get thy credit card out and move it!

    “Exile in Guyville” is the soundtrack to a very specific, precious time in my life. It will always be one of my favorite albums—and it contains some of what I consider the best pop song lyrics ever written. I always loved Phair and wanted to know more about her. But those were the days before the Internet, and social media everything, so she remained elusive. Still kind of is, albeit still totally cool.

      Ditto. Gorgeous flowers. I love chrysathemums, esp the scent.

    That Liz Phair link is everything. I used to listen to some of those songs over and over while lying on the floor of my LES apartment wearing headphones. She was THE voice for so many of us.

    Now I’ve got “F- and Run” in my head. Not a bad thing!

    I just saw Liz Phair two weeks ago, and she was great! I really didn’t like her back in the day. Her overtly sexy, conventionally pretty thing was looked down on at the time by my snobby punk friends. I remember driving some friends in a girl’s car at 4am from Burlington, VT to Highgate for a Grateful Dead show (the early 90’s were weird), and the only tape she had in her car was Exile in Guyville. I remember it kind of secretly growing on me by the end of the trip.

    She is currently touring with a backing band of 20-something skinny punk boys, which is pretty funny. And she plays all the good songs, including Mesmerizing, my favorite.

    Yay Liz Phair! And seriously the makeup jobs on those actors – that’s going to be a scarily good movie.
