Robyn "Bad Gal" Music Video

Ridiculously into this song and that chunky Mad Decent beat. And of course Robyn's dance moves. Thinking about doing a Robyn 'do... should I?! DRINK UP AND DANCE.

My Style Then and Now: Square Dancer Girl

J.Crew shirt / Rag&Bone sweater / A.L.C. skirt / See by Chloé shoes / Oliver Peoples glasses / ASOS clutch / Proenza bracelet
"Elliott we're taking a picture stand next to me hold still it's SQUARE DANCING DAY are my bows straight?!?"

So I went to a very small elementary school for K through third grade, and it was seriously aces. We had only one long hallway, and every year we made a school quilt for Women's History Month, and had a "Jelly Bean Field Day" where you basically got a bunch of jelly beans for doing amazingly fun things outside (seriously!). Also, in gym class we learned square dancing and had an annual square dancing performance and of course, I had to look the part. My brother clearly was dressing for a "John Waters' 80s" costume party at his kindergarten class... or something. 

Okay so also – even though I'm not wearing glasses in the "then" picture, I threw these Oliver Peoples in there because I broke my frames at Igloo Fest in Montreal this weekend. It was p craycray. I want some new frames like these, just not for the OP price (but darn are they pretty). I am also over the moon for the new Proenza accessories... and the shoes and shirt and all of it.

Watch This Now (for your health)

These two are my sartorial soulmates. They are called GD&TOP and they are from Korea. How good is this song?!? I've listened to it like 10 times in a row – Diplo did the beat! I wonder if they will get big in the states? Let me know what you think of the vid/song!

My Style Then and Now: Statue of Liberty

Dion Lee jacket / Eddie Borgo bracelet / Tibi jumpsuit / Proenza bag / Lee Angel bracelets / Brian Atwood heels
"Oh hey guys I'm just the mother effin Statue of Libertayy try not to be too jealouss!" Once I figured out that all I had to do was hold a book and put one hand in the air, I was on my way to being the best Statue of Liberty this side of the Statue of Liberty. And I did this move a lot. Even without teeth okay I did it a lot.

What do you guys think of the "now" version? Is it a do or is a do not?

Givenchy Pre Fall 2011

The feelings that I have about this collection are pretty serious. Givenchy Pre Fall 2011 is pretty much exactly what I want to wear, all the time. It's fancy and feminine and boyish and chic. And those lace-up platform boots. And those varsity jackets.

and PS how beautiful are these photos? I love that you can see foot traffic and the passage of time in the background (emo).

oh you fancy huh? @toomanyronis

Throwback Thursday

Sperry Topsider penny loafers / FCUK jumpsuit
This is an oldie but a Roni. Is it Spring yet? I'm ready for loafers and jumpsuits again... and more floor photos in 2011.

Right now I'm watching Dracula Dead and Loving it with my roomie Nick. It took us 20 minutes to decide on this as he only likes movies from the "Late Night Comedies" section of Netflix. It's tough.

don't be such a colleen @toomanyronis

My Style Then and Now: Sante Fe Or Bust

Proenza Pre-Fall dress / R&B hat / K. Walker shades / P. Love earrings / A. McQueen ring / R. Krakoff bag / M. Jacobs loafers
"Oh hey guys, here I am just checking out the sights to see in good ole Santa Fe." I freakin loved Santa Fe. This was the first time I ever flew on a plane and I totally killed it! I really really loved this dress, I'm pretty sure my grandma made it for me my mom made it for me and the fabric was really awesome.

I'm in deep hearts with Proenza pre-fall 2011. I'll probably do a post on that collection later in the week if I'm on top of my game and not too busy watching The Catherine Tate show (which you should watch if you appreciate Kristen Wiig-style humor and British accents). Also, truth be told this might be my favorite "Now" look to date... I pine for it all.

I'm not bothered @toomanyronis

To Grandmother's House We Go: Part 2

As promised, here are some more pictures from my grandma's house. She has bar none the most amazing bathroom of all time. It's covered in mirrored wallpaper, has a giant vanity mirror, and the hand towels are kept in a ceramic lion. I adore it.

It's become a tradition for the cousins to sneak away during Christmas eve every year to try on all her incredible jewelry and get a spritz of perfume. These pictures don't even cover a half of what she has, it's pretty awesome. Here are some highlights, I hope you enjoy.

Notice anything funny happening on this wall of family pictures?
This year for my 25th my grandma gave me a fur purse and a vintage Chanel chain necklace – are you starting to see why I love the woman so much?

To Grandmother's House We Go: Part 1

My grandmother's house is pretty magical. She has a giant sewing room full of yards and yards of mudcloth, batik, plaid, and hundreds nay THOUSANDS of buttons.When I was a kid, I used to spend hours upon hours sorting bags of buttons from garage and estate sales. It was very important business and I loved doing it. My grandma used to make me the most exquisite coats, one years was a red wool number with black trim at the sleeves and a matching red beret – I got street snapped wearing it! I was about 6 I think. I definitely owe my love of fashion in large part to her. Also my love of Shirley Temple movies, Rex Harrison and Ovaltine.

Anywhoo I hope you enjoy this peek into her sewing room, and hopefully I can dig up some photos of her creations to show you too. She also collects pottery in different colors – white, yellow, green, etc which I've included here, and part two will include her unbelievably glam jewelz, bathroom and closet. Stay tuned!

Tell me what you think people!

a puzzlement @toomanyronis


Dad's sweater / Topshop jacket / Roxy tights / Steve Madden flats / Michael Kors bag / AA scarf
Just found this random pic from October. This day was way too cold for this outfit. Also I like to think of the tights as having bowTIES on them, not bows.

My Style Then and Now: Tiny Liberace

Shirt / Pants / Heels / Bag / Earmuffs / Necklace / Earrings
"Oh hey guys I'm just enjoying my living room and my new burse (bunny purse) and tickling the old ivories over here 'cause I'm a Tiny Liberace."

OKAY and let me just address that YES, those are kind of stripper heels. I know. I realize that they are ridiculous. But I love them and I don't think that if I wore them with this outfit anyone would be like "Hey that person is a stripper." They'd be like "Hey I bet that person used to be a Tiny Liberace."

don't make me sing @toomanyronis
