Editorial Reviews

Review

"So, we're tickled pink to see an entire tome dedicated to the brazen gals throughout the ages — and their rebellious regalia." ~Refinery29.com

"Brings the history of the tomboy to life by fully celebrating what it means to be a tomboy and carry the inherent ability to blend a rugged sensibility with classic, understated elegance."~Runningwithheels.com

"Filled with shots of classically stylish female archetypes from all walks of life, this one’s just as good a coffee table pick up for the guys as it is for the ladies."~GQ

Ok, so, for starters the book is an aesthetic masterpiece of incredibly cool tomboy style. I can't get enough of it. It's extremely well curated and written, no doubts about it. I loved that the intro and various written snippets in the book let me into the world of the author. And I felt like I had known her my entire life. It was one of those "ah ha" moments. "She really gets it." Growing up a total tomboy and still embracing my tomboy style has certainly been a big part of my life and self expression. It even impacts many of the choices I make. I also developed my feminine side along the way and I'm comfortable in my shoes. I think the author illustrates that, by showing how Tomboy Style isn't just a way of dressing but, rather, a certain, special spirit is what elevates this book from fashion to culture, in a much broader sense of the term. I frequent the author's blog, so I know about her close relationship to her father. As an only daughter I experienced the same kind of relationship. But what I found most interesting about this book and the blog, is that it brought me closer to my mother in new ways. I realized how, too, she had fabulous tomboy style, and she influenced me in ways that made me comfortable and confident. I gleaned from her style and then made it my own. That is what Tomboy Style is all about. It's nice to finally have it gorgeous book form, and to recognize how tomboy style has influenced culture in far more ways, shapes and forms than one might first realize. I know a lot of other women will feel the same sentiments and have that "ah ha" moment too when they read this book. Tomboy Style is out there, in various manifestations of reality and pages, and, in my opinion, there is nothing cooler.

This little gem of a book is a pleasure to look through from beginning to end. It's chock full of rare photos of some of the most stylish women of the last century, from Cat Power to Katherine Hepburn. The author has a singular eye and a captivating voice--you really get the sense that she doesn't just *love* Tomboy Style, she *lives* Tomboy Style. It's produced beautifully, especially given its reasonable price. Would make a fabulous gift. Highly recommended.

This book does a great job of carefully putting together all the mosaic tiles that form a picture of the quintessential tomboy. Whether that means clothes, a manual transmission, or just a defiant smile, the author goes far beyond fashion to define the term. It's a real piece of cultural reflection, disguised as a fun and evocative collection of photographs and musings. Superbly done!

This book is so heartfelt and yet includes such a sophisticated mix of photography and historical figures. A winning combination! And, more so, a great book to give as a gift! Awesome. Amazing.

Ths book is way over-priced for the limited and narrow contents. The subject nature is good but it was a lost opportunity as the tomboy style wasn't dealth with in any way but the shallow and superficial. I will probably throw this book in the bin as there is not enough content to keep any interest.
