Cute Umbrellas

Along with Spring, comes the rain. After many days of nice clear blue skies and warm breezy wind, the rain has inevitably reached my corner of the globe. Fortunately for me, this means that I can finally use the new super cute umbrella I bought from London during spring break! Always look on the bright side right?

Anyway, about my super cute umbrella, its from Accesorize (as are the two shown above) with cute floral pattern against a black background and its TINY. Thats my favourite thing about it. Its so tiny, it barely weighs anything and actually fits into my small shoulder bag along with my ipod, wallet, camera, mini hairbrush and lipgloss. Its amazingly portable. I LOVE my new umbrella. The only downfall is that its so tiny, it feels very fragile against the Chicago wind. But I'll be careful ;)

Ever the business-minded, Juicy Couture ofcourse makes umbrellas as well. They're cute. The black one is . . . usable I guess, even cool if worn properly. But the pink one, if you see it opened, is covered with pink hearts. Waaaaaay too much, unless you're age 10 or below, it can in no way be considered cute.

Other cute tiny umbrellas I found was this spotty Kate Spade one and this personalised initial one from Neiman Marcus. The Kate Spade one, is playfully elegant, just the right touch to be fun but not childishly so. And who doesn't like their own initials right?

Ever thoughtful to their customer's needs, Neiman Marcus also makes these plain tiny umbrellas and waterproof poncho. Although I really don't see how a waterproof poncho will protect one from the rain. Is that thing at the neck a decoration or a hood? Either case, its not very attractive. Good thing the ladies of Neiman Marcus have drivers and cars, and would never be caught out in the rain to begin with.

And of course, there is always the super uber cute tiny umbrellas from Burberry. The tiny pouch that comes with the red one is just darling!

I have had a couple of Acessorize umbrellas, unfortunately didn't even last a day, not had an umbrella yet that's lasted anything more than a week. One week it rained (and was VERY windy too) for a whole week non stop, I went through five umbrellas. So I would never really buy an expensive one, due to living on the coast and experiencing the wind that finishes of every single umbrella I've ever owned... it's sad!
I kind of want a golf one because it shouldn't give in to the wind, but then you want one that fits in your bag just in case, and you can't really walk round with a massive umbrella under your arm all the time... but I am coming round to the idea.

The umbrella! My favorite part of springtime showers! I also have a hard time with umbrellas breaking in the wind and thus am reluctant to buy one of those delicious Burberry numbers...although I would really love one. Those Juicy umbrellas seem, well, typically what I would expect from Juicy - tacky. I'd probaby still smile if I saw 'its raining coutour' though!

Great Blog - I read it every day!

I do love small umbrellas. I usually buy the small, Japanese ones (for some odd reason, I trust Japanese umbrellas to last longer.)

I have to say I have seen a great variety of umbrellas in Taipei where it's either raining, about to rain, or typhoon season. No one there seems to own a plain black umbrella either.

Those are adorable! I love the Kate Spade. I am still using a black umbrella with a yellow smiley face that I stole from the lost and found in the Architecture building at my college in the middle of a downpour like 8 years ago. That is embarrassing on so many levels.

Oh, I love girly umbrellas! It's so tough to find one when you need one. I'm definitely going to have to order one of these. Thanks for the tip!

I am on the hunt for some Balenciaga SS2006 inspired tshirts that won't cost me an arm and a leg. Does anyone know of online stores that I should take a look at (that ship to Canada??)

And if this is not the place to ask - could someone kindly direct me to a more appropriate place.

In reference to one of the comments above, there is such a thing as windproof umbrellas. They are not cute since they are usually all black for some reason, but beats getting stuck in the rain.
