Online Finds and Local Faves From A "Tomboy" with Style

Lizzie Garrett Mettler has a take on style that fascinates me and the way she's defined it has made a classic point of view feel like an absolutely fresh discovery. Her book, blog....well, her brand, Tomboy Style, is a love letter to that unique essence...that special cocktail of style and substance captured distinctly by each woman or product she profiles. Everyone's brand of "Tomboy" is just a bit different and yet, there is a common thread that runs through them all. If you have it, you know it....and I can definitely relate. For me, she's nodded to something that resonates and her clever curation of this world always leaves me wanting more.

  1. Drink To Die For: Dark and Stormy at Hungry Cat dark and stormyVISIT WEBSITE | LOCATION: Hungry Cat 1535 Vine Street, Los Angeles [Hollywood] My favorite cocktail in town....Goslings black seal rum, lime juice and Bundaberg ginger beer, served on the rocks in a tumbler and garnished with a lime wheel on a toothpick.
  2. Local Artist To Know: Karen Kimmel karen kimmel VISIT WEBSITE She is definitely someone to know about.  She is the founder of kimmelkids.com, where she makes the coolest stencils and hosts creative crafting workshops for kids.
  3. On My Ipod: Kisses, "Heart Of The Nightlife" kissesDOWNLOADThis is my current favorite band, and not just because I know the band. “Bermuda” could quite possibly be the best song to drive around town windows down.

  6. Go-To Bottle Of Wine: Peter Michael L’Après-Midi wine VISIT WEBSITE I love this bottle of wine because it’s meant to be enjoyed in the late afternoon on awarm day—what can be better than that? My husband is really into California whites, he turned me onto this five years ago or so.

My Current Vacation Pick: Canary Hotel in Santa Barbara canary hotel VISIT WEBSITE | LOCATION: Canary Hotel 31 West Carrillo, Santa Barbara [Downtown Santa Barbara] I love Palm Springs and Big Sur, but my last great weekend escape was Santa Barbara in the middle of January.
