Clara Bow rhymes with 'paipo'

So I just stumbled upon this image of Clara Bow over at The Sunset Sessions tumblr, and it made me pretty happy. Surfing and cowgirls combined? Come on!

So obviously I got obsessed with this, and although I didn't find out much specific information about this image, I did find a few others that are clearly form the same shoot. 

This one above is my favourite.She looks so happy. 

Also, here is a bonus 1929 artwork of Clara Bow surfing, by Enoch Bolles.

Happy Friday!


  1. ahhhh the days before leggies, when one could walk the plank in one's sandshoes! delightful

  2. Yep. Totally functional fashion. Just like wearing high-heels in the sand!
