...and I don't mean the common Italian name.
I am talking about...
"An Americanism, tony entered the language in the 1870s.
Its precise origin is unclear, but it is related to the word
tone meaning "a particular quality or way of sounding."
Also meaning, high toned, stylish"
So I have decided that Rachel Zoe can keep bananas
because from now on I am
oh so very tony!
(I would like to point out that I never really used
the term bananas to describe anything. Well,
except for that one time when I did and let's just say
that it didn't go over well with the 5 year old
and under crowd.
All they said was sure mom I will have a banana!)
I am positive tony will be received much better.
I can just see it now,
Me: "Isn't this outfit so tony?"
Otto or Ava: "My name isn't tony mama.
Why can't you ever remember my name?"
Me: "Oh, but you are so tony my little love!"
Yep, it is going to be so tony to use tony to describe tony things.
