I want you to know that I'm beautiful
That is a line from a song by Under the Influence of Giants. It was in June 2005 at the Viper Room where I first saw this band. Samantha Ronson was on first. Kirsten Dunst and Jake Gyllenhaal came together to see her. Kimberly Stewart was hanging out with her friends. Then, The Like played their set. Then it was UTIOG. I stood front row and danced. Their songs automatically make you dance. This was pre-David, and when there was a chic and a another bassist in the lineup. I saw them again few months later, and they announced that they got signed by Island Def Jam. I saw them again at the Key Club early last year. I really liked them the instant I heard them and I still remember watching them at the Roxy, and thinking to myself, "these guys are gonna be huge!" I like the Viper Room. I only have fun memories of that place.
Anyways, my favorite fashion item of the moment is the cardigan dress. I love menswear to begin with. You can just find a nice men's cardigan, so it becomes an oversized dress on you. Wear with opaque tights and a sequin beret. Splurge on nice ones by J.Lindeberg, Fred Perry, Lacoste, or just find something cheap at Target.
