editor's pick: perfect umbrellas for spring showers

By: Erin McLaughlin
It's snowing outside but that doesn't mean I'm not thinking about spring showers. In fact, I'm yearning for spring showers. Sure, rain means relatively warmer temperatures, but it also gives me an opportunity to buy a stylish new umbrella. This year I want to go old-school and shop for a Victorian-inspired pagoda umbrella - the kind I can imagine Lady Mary carrying on a misty day. I happened on the site of Toronto boutique a Raindrops they ship across Canada) and I found a few that I fell in love with. The bold red Chantal Thomass Lace Emblem Pagoda umbrella ($175.00) immediately caught my eye. I love the printed "lace" on it and the chic black piping.   Red is a fabulous colour on a dark and dreary day but I am also drawn to the creamy background colour of the Chantal Thomass Lace Pagoda umbrella (&185.00). If you look closely, there is a pale pink "lace" print layered under the black "lace" - it almost has a "lingerie" look to it! If I had the budget I  would have to buy both! But for now I think the red one is the way to go - after all, everything always looks better with bold red! Please comment below or tweet me at @erinmclaughlin1 if you want to tell me which YOU prefer!
