Dear Letter Lovers,

If you have any questions please email us at

This edition is targeted at Girly Tom Boys 

I'm not an expert on the subject of the Girly Tom Boy, so I asked my dear friend Rita Melo to come up with her very own take on this edition's Christmas Wish List.  

 Rita Melo
One of my many Lisbon Style Stars

Because Rita is a girl with a very eclectic and personal sense of style that can easily be translated into a pertinent and up-to-date wishlist capable of satisfying the tastes of any trendy female, especially the girly tom boys

The Girly Tom Boy

Rita likes to classify her overall style as Girly Tom Boy. So if you have a daughter, niece, friend, sister or girlfriend who falls into this category, pay close attention. 

A girly tom boy is far more nonchalant than a girly girl. The hair is usually messy, the accessories simple, the looks and cuts of their clothes are relatively masculine with just a hint of femininity

Drew Barrymore, Kelly Osbourne, Jennifer Anniston and Chloe Sevigny all fall into the Girly Tom Boy Style Category.


The Tom Boy Girly culture is made up of leathers, black, biker boots, denim as well as leggings matched with allstars

There's a very rock'n'roll biker boho chic vibe.

Check out some of the casual tom boy girly day-to-day wear:

The feminine touch is still important. These girls like to glam-up, they simply go by it in a much less pink party frill dress manner. 

Florence Welch:

Alexa Chung is another classic example of the Girly Tom Boy.

Her look is boyish, slightly scruffy, relaxed and yet ever-so-chic


Rita Melo is the queen of mix and match

"I love mixing styles into one outfit"
