To me skateboarding is sport/art/transportation/exercise/rolling yoga & self-confidence building it’s why I share stories of girls & organizations that encourage girls to skate – more girls skateboard when they see girls skateboarding & get encouragement.

Inclusion – building self-confidence are always in style on & off the board.

Skater Girls in Wyoming

When I worked on my collage of #girlscanskate USA – I met a lot of people.  One was Matt Wright – skater & supporter of other skaters.

He let me know about CWSA Central Wyoming Skate Association.

Picture above may be boys – but there’s girls at the park too –

cwsa drop in

Thanks Matt and thanks to all the skaters who take time to encourage others.  It’s not just more girls it’s more people who skate when they see skateboarding is fun.

Plus Happy Belated Birthday to Wendy – she’s been skating for about 4 months with some “help” from her sister – sometimes it’s the ones that prank us that love us the most!

And Wes – looks like some skateboards are needed in Wyoming!

Happy Birthday

Today – I want to wish a happy birthday to my much older friend Cory

Screen shot 2016-06-20 at 9.48.50 AM

without him – I wouldn’t have been able to do the Active Ride Snap Chat takeover from the top of Skatercross – he made me so mad I forgot how scared I was and just got up there.

So Happy Birthday Cory & thank you to all the people who push us out of our comfort zones – because that’s where the fun really begins.

Warning – making a skatingfashionista mad can be dangerous!

Happy Birthday Roller Girl Gang!

I just read on Huff Post Women – Girl Power is about Teamwork not Competition – I see you girls working together as a team & it is very powerful to me – keep it up!

I love how you include girls on roller skates & skateboards – including others that’s stylish on & off the board.

Ballerinas on Wheels

Alma shares this from Sweden

Ella Kennedy from Sweden, age 11. Who said skateboarding and
ballet didn’t go together 😉 We worked hard to get girls
skate going in Karlstad Sweden. We went from 4 girls to 30
during the autumn. We are mighty proud over this ☺️

Where is Karlstad?

Screen shot 2016-04-18 at 8.59.30 AM

According to the web, Karlstad is about 8,800 km from San Diego (where I am).  That I got an email from Sweden to let me know more girls are skateboarding there – fabulous.  More girls skate when they see girls skateboarding and we encourage each other.

Do ballet and skateboarding work together?  Yes – skateboarding is sport and art – adding your ballet, yoga, who you are into your skateboarding is what makes watching skateboarding beautiful and skating fun.

Thanks Alma & Ella for sharing.  And thanks for your patience – they first shared in January, by now there’s more girls skateboarding in Sweden & Happy Belated Birthday to Ella who is now 12!

Princesses do Skateboard



Rylee’s birthday present! She watched the Pink Helmet Posse on TV and became obsessed and she tries to skate on her brothers board so I got her a board her size.  – Mom Michelle

Rylee I love your style – you truly are a princess and the light up shoes are the bomb!  Thanks for sharing this picture and for proving that more girls skateboard when they see girls skateboarding!  I’m so glad you saw the Pink Helmet Posse on TV and I’m sure you will inspire other girls to skate too.

Happy Birthday Rylee – wishing you a year of fabulous style on & off the board!  Michelle love your style too – keep encouraging Rylee and so many other girls to be themselves & have fun!




Make History Even if You Have to Misbehave


Can’t believe it. The incredible @shanelondagin has done it again. He made me the coolest Birthday present ever.  Carly

Celebrating birthdays is always in style and I love, love, love personal gifts.  I’m not saying no to gift cards – keep sending them – I’m just saying personalized gifts really touch my heart.

Style isn’t about how much something costs – classic style is about how much something makes you feel happy. Style and fun are priceless.

Make sure to read her board –  Well behaved women rarely make history

Now go out there and keep it stylish on and off the board!
