What do Katharine Hepburn, Emmylou Harris, Jane Birkin and Coco Chanel have in common? Classic, fearless Tomboy Style! And for today’s show, I got to talk with the founder and writer behind this beautiful, award-winning blog and book, Lizzie Garrett. Tune in to hear us chat about tomboy style icons from yesterday and today, and what it takes to be a savvy tomboy.

PLUS! Exciting new weekly segment making it’s debut on Sew & Tell today – I’m joined by fashion news commentator and dapper gent, BTR’s Dane Feldman. Together we’ll share some news updates from this past week, talk about Dane’s recent trip to the lesser-known Couture Fashion Week, and review Sunday’s Oscar looks!

And of course, some great new music to go with the great conversation – tracks today from Lia Ices, Cat Power, Beach House, and POLICA. This hour of Sew & Tell is EPIC, so jump-start your weekend right now with fashion fun on BreakThru Radio!
