Yearnin' For Ron Herman

Haute Hippie's got herself a new gig, yo!

Meet Ron Herman's new website fashion copywriter! Ron Herman is a super hip, high-end boutique (think along the lines of Fred Segal) that's been around since the 70s. The stores reside in trendy, shi-shi areas of town -- Beverly Hills, Malibu, Brentwood, Costa Mesa and Melrose. Their label roster is pretty much the wet dream of every certifiable fashionette: Jovovich-Hawk, Marc Jacobs, Mayle, Stella McCartney, Vena Cava, Charlotte Ronson, Phillip Lim, Trovata, Proenza Schouler and many, many, many more that even I can't take it! My new co-workers seem fabulous, too, which is without a doubt a major plus.

It's only one day a week, but I get to do two things I love, love, love best: look at mouth-watering fashion and write all about it.

Ah, such is the life of a Haute Hippie.

I'm Lovin' it: My stepdad and his quips about fashion. My stylish mother bought him a pair of dark denim and a pair of lovely Italian-made brown leather shoes since I'd last been home for a visit -- a vast improvement over the black geriatric shoes he's fond of sporting for comfort (trust me, I'm trying to do damage control on this). In response to my compliment "Nice dark denim!" on his nouveau jeans, he replied: "You mean DORK denim?!", and though they're not pointy and they're not green, he's now taken up calling his snazzy new kicks "elf shoes". In conclusion, the moral of the story is unless gay or metro, men know not a thing about fashion...and don't particularly care either.

I'm Over it: My stomache ache. Souplantation on an empty stomach is the devil. Oh wait, I had two pieces of lemon coffee cake before I went. Thank god I went to the gym this morning.

Band of the Day: The Australian indie pop group of eight Architecture In Helsinki. This musical discovery I owe to my best guy friend (who lives so terribly far away from me in Vancouver) -- he is a true lover of music and has the wickedest playlists on his iPod. If he loves it, I love it. And if I love it, hopefully so will you. or
