Wednesday was an epic apocalyptic weather day in NYC. What was a sunny zillion degree day turned into a monsoon in the early afternoon and everybody in the office was without an umbrella. Never again! These ten cool umbrellas will keep us — and you — dry in the worst of storms.
I hate the rain! I hate it so much that I’ve been known to cancel appointments and outings if there’s a downpour. Why? Well, this isn’t a very good reason, but it’s too difficult to stay stylish and dry when it’s raining. My shoes are usually what I love most about my outfits, and I think of Wellies as a necessary evil … for the rest of the world. But to make going out in the rain a little more bearable, I’m picking up a Jimeale New York umbrella. These cute and stylish umbrellas are available in several colors and feature whimsical polka dots on the outside and Jimeale’s sophisticated signature chocolate and white stripe inside. This double-lined umbrella won’t make the rain a completely fashionable affair, but it’s so darling I wouldn’t dare keep it cooped up indoors on a rainy day.
I’m dying. My chest cavity is compressing in from too much sheer joy. Giggles. Happiness. Too. Much. Cute. Hyperventilating. [YouTube

We thought “pretty umbrella” was an urban legend like “comfortable stiletto” or “fun time at the DMV.” But this clear plastic, heart-splattered umbrella is just the accessory to keep you dry and adorable through the wet winter months. Take it from us: Brightly colored umbrellas perk up a drizzly day faster than a first kiss. (And doesn’t it just make you want to plant one on your sweetie in the pouring rain?) You’ll never leave behind an umbrella this cute on the bus again!
These April showers just won’t seem to let up, and until we can bust out the spring sandals, an umbrella is going to be our must-have accessory. We love this option because it manages to be cute and creative and totally understated at the same time. Now if only we could find a nice pair of galoshes.
Love the hot, sticky summer, hate the random mid-day thundershowers. This’ll cheer me up. [$33.99, ModCloth.com] Keep reading »
I have a total thing for Mandy Moore that is not very easily explained. She’s no superstar in any department, though I think she’s a decent actress and singer (frankly, I loved her album of cover songs). But something about her seems nice and smart and she’s definitely stylish, which is why we’ve pulled together a slideshow of some of her hottest looks. BUT while I was doing research, I came across this video, of her covering Rihanna’s “Umbrella”. She does it in a very moody way. I like it. And normally I think people should keep their grubby paws off RiRi. Anyway, slideshow after the jump… Keep reading »
