|Hand-Painted Birds Asian Paper Parasol|
There are a few vintage finds that just thrill us Vixens... and vintage umbrellas are near the top of the list. They never come in large quantities, so each one feels like a special treasure.

The feel of using one during a summer storm is wonderfully chic, whether you're sheltered by a pagoda-shaped parasol or a Mod 1960s brollie in crystal-clear vinyl. And so many lend themselves as exquisite decor, propped in a corner or above the armoire until the skies darken. You'll be wishing for rain!
