By now you’re aware of the wildly popular TOMBOYStyle blog (and if you aren’t, what a pleasure to introduce you!) and the subsequent spin-off book, Tomboy Style: beyond the boundaries of fashion, being published by Rizzoli available April 3 (pre-order now!). But how well do you know the girl behind the blog? We caught up with TOMBOYstyle creator and author, Lizzie Garrett Mettler and were lucky enough to have her share a few things with TPS via the world famous TOMBOYstyle Q&A format. So without further adieu…
If not in Los Angeles, I would live in…New York.
My dream holiday would be to…go antiquing in Belgium.
My current obsessions are…
Food: The shrimp toast sandwich at Son of a Gun
Fashion: Hudson, Chance, RTH, Feal Mor, A.P.C.
Retail Store(s): The new store Garde on Beverly Blvd.
I channel my childhood self when I…wear neon.
The fictional character I most relate to is…A combination of Gene and Phineas from A Separate Peace. I always find myself toggling between the rule-follower and the rule-breaker, never quite knowing which one is really me.
If I had to be outdoors all day I would…hike deep into Griffith Park with my dog Harrison, and build a fort.
My favorite quality in a man is…a sense of his true style, not just in clothing, but in his manner. A man comfortable with himself, I guess. And modesty. I loathe a braggart, especially in a guy.
My favorite quality in a woman is…a zany sense of humor and follow-through.
I’m terrified of…octopuses.
My dream car is a…60s Porsche 356 Speedster. Big time.
My cocktail of choice is…Bulleit Rye Whiskey with a splash of lemonade and soda water on ice with a lime wedge.
My celebrity crush is…Dustin Hoffman.
My beauty products of choice are…Unite 7 Second Leave-In Detangler, Kiehl’s Argan Oil, daily exercise, and a good night’s sleep.
If I could go back in time for one decade it would be…The 1960s. I’d attend JFK’s moon mission speech at Rice University, see Buffalo Springfield and The Troggs live and buy one of the first YSL Le Smoking jackets.
As a teenager I was totally into…a whole lot of things I don’t want to mention here.
I tend to splurge on…out-of-print coffee table books, international fashion magazines and sunglasses.
Writing the book on Tomboy Style…is what makes me have Tomboy Style.
And if sharing her fabulous style, dreams and inspiration weren’t enough, Lizzie was gracious enough to offer one lucky TPS reader an advanced, signed copy of Tomboy Style: beyond the boundaries of fashion!
