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.


  1. only you would attempt skating in Marant shoes... you do make me chuckle :) xx

  2. skater girls are the best!! have you seen skate bitches?
    I've tried to teach myself to be a skater girl but its too hard :(

  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.

  5. Such cool images
    Love the girl with the skateboard and handbag

  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.
