Roses Umbrella

Floral blazer, Heart, Moon, and Stars. Lime camisole, Deep Los Angeles. Black skirt, INC. Lime shoes, Colin Stuart. Rhinestone and faux pearl earrings, from my wedding. Rose-edged umbrella, SkyMall!

I’ve always been a fan of the SkyMall catalog. I like to giggle at the gadgets and pop culture memorabilia and think myself far too sophisticated for such snake oil. I wish I were as clever as Mimi Smartypants and had done something like record the number of items described as “revolutionary” or amusing copy. Instead, I gasp over ridiculous items and secretly pine for the cat litter box concealer that looks like a Longaberger basket. I gazed longingly at this umbrella for two consecutive trips. After my red umbrella was “lost” (I think my husband stole it), I felt justified in splurging on the Roses Umbrella. It receives endless compliments, and I don’t have to worry about it disappearing into the black hole (i.e. the backseat of my husband’s car).

Oh, and I think this jacket is fabulous too. A closer look at the neckline and my wedding earrings (what a coincidence that I would wear these earrings on the same day that I finally upload the wedding pictures onto flickr):

This is one of my favorite outfits! I love the mix of colors. Very pretty :)

FYI: I might have to copy your umbrella (I LOVE it!). Did you decide if you were going to buy my dress???

That is a beautiful umbrella. If the roses came in pink, I'd get one.
