Stormy Weather

Unless you live in southern California, chances are that it's going to rain in your area. So we BGs need to be prepared for the uncertain weather that spring brings. What better way to stay dry and chic than purchasing a nice umbrella! Even though there are endless designs, styles, colors and shapes that have a common function, all umbrellas are not created equal.

There are some that will stand the test of time while will others will rip and tear with the slightlest gust of wind.

Whatever brand you choose, just try to keep up with it. For some, that's the most challenging part!

Check out some of my picks:


Scarf Print Folding Umbrella available at www.coach.com for $88


Brown Lace Queen Dot Umbrella available at www.pareumbrella.com for $65


Pink & White Printed Umbrella available at www.jcrew.com for $39.50


Rihanna Sparkles Umbrella available at www.totes.com for $30


Classic Burberry Umbrella available at www.burberry.com for $225


Totes Compact Umbrella available at www.kmart.com for $9.99


Coach Tattersall Folding Umbrella available at www.coach.com for $88

Would you believe that I bought my first umbrella about a year ago? Prior to that, I never owned one. Is that a man thing or what? lmao!!!

12kyle, you are too funny. I guess it is a guy thing because I own several umbrellas. I'm guessing the hair factor has something to do with it. I must admit I've never really thought of them in terms of fashion but I will now! I'm thinking the women who pay big bucks for umbrellas must spend lots of time doing the rain dance. HA!

Those are so cute. I'd be afraid to buy one though. I'm awful with losing umbrellas. I just don't knwo where they go.

Cute Cute Cute!
I once saw a nice little coach umbrella and I didn't buy it. I later felt regret over it because it was on sale in an outlet store. Ok I guess it's time to move on...lol
Thanks for this post

I love Coach everything but the day I spend that kind of money on an umbrella is the day I sit outside under the water sprinkler with my pretty, expensive umbrella! hehe Seriously, I'd be so paranoid about leaving my umbrella I'd leave my purse! :-0

They're all so cute. I usually buy the boring black ones but I think it's about time for a change!

totes are the best! they weight nothing so its always good to carry one.

brella! brella! these days you never know when you are going to need one. I must admit I'm one of those people that always loses them. Having a strong and sturdy one is the way to go!
I'm voting for Coach and Brown Lace Queen!

the target umbrella = LOVE. sooooo cute!!!

that guy said...

i could see my wife with the first umbrella....y'all should never spend 225 on a umbrella...buy something for your boyfriend

Divine Blackness said...

That last one isn't the cutest but it definitely makes the most sense. Umbrellas really don't do their jobs and that annoys me. Uggghhh!

Divine Blackness said...

Oh and good news....you are now poppin' up on the Google Reader. I tried to add you and it worked. Yesss!

Brown Girl Gumbo said...

Nothing brightens a rainy day like a bright-colored or patterned umbrella!!! I am so sick of gray skies...I need to move West!! :-)

Brown Girl Gumbo said...

@Divine - I'm soooo glad it's working again!! :-)

I usually lose my umbrellas but, these are so cute. I know I like cute brellas but never thought of them as Fashion.
