GIRLS WITH SKATEBOARDS

Wednesday, 27 June 2012



I've never been particularly sporty. I have no hand to eye co-ordination, can't hold my balance and have only ever won a race when I was pitted against a considerably overweight girl called Angharad at school. But that doesn't stop me dreaming of being a skater girl...

Oh, and if I was remotely adept at skating, I would:


A) Buy this floral gem of a board, handpainted by the excruciatingly beautiful AND talented Helen Glory girls. Buy it here.





and B) wear this outfit while doing it, Chanel cassette tape player clutch an' all:





Clockwise from left: 3.1 Phillip Lim leather vest, Rodarte hoodie, Lula Magazine Issue 14, VPL jersey bra, Isabel Marant Willow sneakers, 3.1 Phillip Lim silk satin-crepe pants, Comme des F***down beanie, Hermes Collier de Chien bracelet, Chanel Cassette Clutch.

  3. My boyfriend is a pro skater, hence a supply of old boards to paint on. I once managed skating in heels in covent garden. V dangerous! I think I'll leave the skating to the boys!

  4. I love that you planned an outfit around skateboarding! I tried to longboard with my friend and we would ride around a block and stop every couple of minutes to talk and then brace ourselves against parked cars whenever we felt like we were going to fall.

  6. I swear these skateboards make an un-co gal like me WANT to learn. At least with your outfit set we can kind of look a bit pro-skater :) Minus the board though.
