* Chic Umbrellas *



Pasotti Gold Flowers Umbrella $300

Tumi Python Umbrella $50


Francesco Maglia Stripes Umbrella $190

Fulton Birdcage Bubble Umbrella $30


Jean Paul Gaultier Leather-look Square Umbrella $225


Hermes Umbrella $435


Tiffany Teal Parasol $50


Chantal Thomass Clock Umbrella $100

The only time I really don’t mind the rain is when I can bundle up on the couch with my husband and doggies and watch movies by the fire. Inevitably, I must weather the storm and go out in it …and when I do, I grab one of these. The Tumi one to be exact.

Luckily I live in Los Angeles where not only does it rain infrequently, we drive everywhere so time spent in and/or under the rain drops is usually only getting in and out of said car …which usually means that bringing an umbrella is just a hassle. ;) But I love all of these.

    Really cute choices! Considering I go through multiple umbrellas every year, I cant imagine buying anything more than a generic totes.
    But if I was a rich girl…..

    These are great! I definitely need to invest in a new umbrella, considering that where I currently live is known for dreary, wet weather. Love the clear bubble one and the Tiffany’s teal parasol! Great post! Thanks!

    Oh my lord- I love them all! My poor crumpled (and broken) black Totes umbrellas need a replacement. Like you lovely people in LA, us Atlantans also spend most of our time in our cars- and when we finally broke out of our draught this year, none of us could even remember how to drive in the rain. We’re getting back into the swing of things ;)

    The Hermes should be lined with cashmere for the price no?!

    Cute umbrellas! I don’t like the rain, but I have lived in a lot of rainy places, so I’m used to it. Last March, I flew to LA to meet up with my sister, who was job searching at the time. Unfortunately, it rained the whole weekend. Her friends cancelled everything we had planned. They told her to get used to it, that LA closes down in the rain. Finally, we gave up and moved our fun to Las Vegas!

    I have a clear one like the bird cage one and it is awesome, especially for people with long hair because you can put it over your head all the way and still see where you are going.

    So chic! I have a clear one like that one you featured- it’s the best but a bit large to carry around.

    I adore fun umbrellas but I’m always afraid I’m going to lose them. I have a couple of really fabulous ones that sit in my closet but usually I’m a plain black kind of gal:) the weather can be so bad here in the winter that I just want to take a crappy umbrella bc they break with the wind…

    This is such a great post. I love them all. People don’t really see umbrella’s as an accessory. I live in Ireland and it rains most of the time so a chic umbrella is essential. Thanks for posting this :)
