This is a foreign concept to me. I use umbrellas for function; to keep myself dry. When it's not raining, they sit in a closet or in the trunk of my car. Umbrellas to me are not fashion accessories. Jewelry is one thing ... I put it on and forget about it. Something that requires that I carry it around is more burden than accessory.

Maybe you should just take her out to dinner.

I am a person who would rather the small tote type and would not use an umbrella people would notice so to speak. Now other people get a kick out of it and make the umbrella more of a fashion statement. Everyone is different.

I like no 4 myself because it suits my style and personality but again that is me . What is the ladies personality and style ? I think some people have a hard time buying me gifts because my style is so unusual so I usually get a gift card but If someone got me a gift card I would def purchase no 4 . I really like it handle and all .

Hi,

I'm going to buy either #3 with polka dot or this one in the picture below (let's call it #5), also polka dot.

Here is the comparison:

OUTER PART
As you can see the top on #3 is red. The top on #5 is violet. I like red better. Besides, the outer part is not solid on #5. It has some gradient at the top (the upper top is lighter). I don't like the absence of solidness. So I'd go with #3.

INNER PART
Black color prevails on #3 (white dots against the black background). White color prevails on #5 (black dots against the white background). I like white background better. So I'd go with #5.

So, there's a contradiction. I like the inner part from one umbrella but the outer part from the other.

I need your advice. What would you choose between these two, polka dot devotees? I need to decide this today as tomorrow may be too late. Thanks.
