It’s really hard to focus on anything but being dreary with all of his crazy weather here in New York. After all, it was SNOWING this morning. I’m really hoping that was just Mother Nature’s way of playing an April fools joke on us all. This type of weather always brings out rain boots, cozy sweaters, and jeans so it’s not necessarily the most fashionable of days here in the garment district. What I did notice this morning that brought a smile to my face were umbrellas. I never really thought of umbrellas being used as a fashion statement before, but Kate Spade and Bella Umbrella gave me a little inspiration this morning. How fantastic are these?!
