TOMBOY STYLE: BEYOND THE BOUNDARIES OF FASHION


It seems like I've been waiting for the book to come out for a while, but really it's gone entirely too quickly. Working on Tomboy Style (both the blog and the book) has easily been the project of my professional life. It was grueling and challenging at times, but I don't think I've felt so passionate about any other work.

The best part, in all honesty, has been hearing from you. Your opinions, suggestions and thoughts really shaped the arc of this process— whenever I felt nervous or anxious, I would get a comment or an email or a tweet that shook me by the shoulders and encouraged me that I was on the right track. Thank you for constantly reminding me that there was indeed an audience for this book. I fear I'll never be able to show how grateful I am for all the positivity and sentiments of genuine excitement, but I still simply want to say: Thank you.

This trailer gives a little sneak peek inside the book I wish I found as a kid, and again as an adult. I truly believe it proves that tomboys can be and are patently stylish.

I also owe a big thank you to the two incredibly nice gentleman from Pier Pictures, who sat with me take after take, mispronunciation after lisp, bad hair after dog bark. Thanks Rob and Tim for being so cool.

Love the choice of song!
I recently came across your blog and am now really looking forward to your book.
It's good to hear Tomboy be given a positive connotation nowadays- that's it's not about being "butch"- it's about being a strong willed and independent woman. :)

Lizzie said...

Thank you guys so much!

the song is "people can do the most amazing of things" by an awesome LA-based band called Kisses.

I really admire the work you are doing with your blog and book, congrats! I can see through the trailer that you really explored everything that tomboy style entails its more than the clothes you choose but a way of life. I think you make an excellent point about having this be for girls and women to celebrate their inner Tomboy and be inspired by those who have came before! Very inspiring work :)

This is the book I wish I could have shown my father (from time to time) as a child and said some kinder gentler version of "Shut up and suck it."

Liz said...

Your blog is so inspiring, I can't wait to get my hands on the book!

Oh, I think your blog is brilliant. And a book? Fab! You have helped me consider my roots as a tomboy and maybe finding myself again in that style.

Trinity Mitchell said...

I am so excited about ordering this book! I love your blog and it's so nice to see the looks of people like Jean Seberg celebrated like this. They have always been more inspiring to me than any Beyonce/Christina/Britney character. Congratulations!

Congratulations on your hard work! I've been following Design Watcher and now Tomboy Style since I moved to LA from NY 2 1/2 years ago. I'm always inspired by your subjects and look forward to seeing where you'll go next! Will there be a book tour??
