"Hey let me help you with your wedding I'll totally wear bloomers and hand out flowers and stuff."

Sorry for the blogging hiatus, Fashion Week was a mad, fun whirlwind. I'm really into the all white looks that cropped up on the runways for spring, and would absolutely love to rock an outfit like this, with huge shoes, neon accessories and a super soft white tee.

At the wedding I was in,  I was instructed to hand out flowers to only the pews marked with a pink bow.... but I got really confused and started handing them out to all the pews, and then I was like "Shit I fucked up!" So I went back and took back the flowers from the people in the undeserving non-bow rows. Once I figured it out I think it went okay. I proceeded to wear those lace trimmed bloomers to school, under all my dresses/skirts, for a solid year. Loved those bloomers.

Also this is not the only time I'll be doing a "Then and Now" post for this picture, obvi gotta do my wedding 'fitter.

So here are a few snaps from fashion week. I'll hopefully get some show snaps / thoughts together but for now I'm just happy to have a bit of a break. It was a hectic but also awesome week, saw some awesome shows and saw lots of people I love love love. Also during fashion week, I learned that I need to invest in some good outerwear for next winter. I realized I'm king of lacking in that area – my leather jacket was NOT cutting it in the warmth department, but my other coat is reallllly tired.

I've got a huge stack of yummy magazines to read and relax with this weekend, and I'm really looking forward to a few days of sleeping in.

And next week I'll be launching SHOP A BETTER RONI! I have a lot of under-used, under-appreciated shoes, accessories, clothes that I'm hoping someone / some of you can get good use of. Yes? Would you could you? Stay tuned for more!

Dos and Don'ts and Maybe Do Thats

Ahhh fashion week. It's upon us again. Starting Thursday it's going to be hectic hectic hectic. I have a lot of thoughts and feelings about fashion week, but let me boil it down to this. It's hard to dress for fashion week. Not just because you're on your feet all day and the weather is pretty much always "weird" at best, but also because people take your picture, or they don't. But it's awesome and flattering when they do, even though the pictures usually wind up nowhere. Last fashion week I got my picture taken for a website called So... that was something that happened.

But, it's a super fun time to get a little wild with your outfits, because there is always someone dressed up a little crazier than you are, and ultimately unless you're Kate, Taylor, Joanna or one of THE BLOGGERATTI no one cares what you're wearing or who you are. The picture above was taken by my friend and awesome photographer Rachel aka The Greyest Ghost. This was one of my favorite outfits from last fashion week, mostly 'cause I was comfy and didn't feel like I was "all dressed up." Also any opportunity to wear my Assad Mounser bullet necklace is a great day. And I love jumpsuits.

 This outfit was okay, MINUS the Heidi hair. The Heidi hair was a poor decision. It makes the whole thing a little toooo hokey. I love this jacket so so so much. But ugh the Heidi hair... some gals look so cute with it! Not this gal.

I'm excited for this week, and there are a ton of shows I can't wait to see. Which I was going to do a post about, but I'm not on top of it so I haven't done that yet. More NYFW stuff to come probably!

Thank you for your awesome input on glasses! I went with the Huxleys.
(and props to Drew "Drizzy" Shoals for having them first)

why you call it lan vin?  @toomanyronis

Glasses On!


Hooray! My trial frames from Warby Parker arrived today and I'm pretty excited. Unfortunately the lenses are just glass for now and have a major glare against the macbook camera, so all these pictures are kind of wonky. You should definitely check out the site if you haven't already – a complete pair of glasses is just $95, which is pretty much the cheapest you can get without going unlegit. Also, they donate a pair of frames for every pair purchased, which is swate.

But which ones do you like?!?! I'm leaning strongly towards the Huxleys. I want to love the Roosevelts but I think they're just a tad too big for my face. The Miles are good too, might get those in black as my next pair. OKAY HURRY UP AND TELL ME BECAUSE I WANT TO ORDER THEM NOW.

please don't make fun of how crooked all my artwork is @toomanyronis

My Style Then and Now: Easter Dress

D&G dress / Thierry Lasry sunglasses / Kate Spade bag / Tanner Good belt / Cacharel platform sandals
"No seriously I just found another. golf ball." Every Easter we used to go on a mammoth golf ball hunt on my aunt's property, and at the end we traded in the golf balls for candy. Peeps, jelly beans, chocolate bunnies, you name it. It was the best. We also used to draw all over our arms, apparently?

Now I want huge platforms, hot pink accessories, giant glasses and nothing but prints all day erry day. Can someone please put that in an Easter basket for me??

parades, bonnets, etc @toomanyronis
