You may not know this, but it has been over 100 F / 37.8 C in Colorado for over a week. It has been miserable. All I can think about is cooler temperatures and finding shade.
Tomorrow is the Vintage Swimsuit Contest (yes, I am extremely nervous) and it is supposed to be around 100 F again. What does a girl have to do to get some shade!
Today's feature will be all about parasol's for those hot, sunny days.
This 1940's Japanese paper parasol has a unique red floral print and traditional wooden handle. ($49.00) This parasol would go beautifully with my swimsuit and red heels. Oh well, a little too late now!
Vintage Japanese hand painted paper parasol. I love the cranes! ($35.00)
Two Japanese paper parasols. One green and one purple! ($161.99) I have never seen anything quite like these two.
WWII Japanese silk hand painted butterfly parasol with bamboo handle. ($49.95) I am not a huge fan of pink but I do love the hand painted flowers and butterflies enough to get past it.
Vintage Japanese silk parasol by Isetan. ($75.00) The lady selling this says it is from her grandmother's collection that she brought over after WWII. I love a little history with vintage items.
Well, that does it for today's Fashion Friday. I hope you all have a wonderful weekend!
