Welcome Spring in Paris!

Looking outside my window it looks more like the start of winter than spring. Large fluffy snow flakes are coming down in a thick blanket and it is -2 degrees Celsius ... Which has sent me day dreaming of our spring trip to Paris in 2010.

It's a bit difficult to make out the umbrella handle in the collage above ... so here is a close up.  We all know that what makes one stand out in the crowd is unexpected detail. And I think the skull handle on this Pasotti umbrella does just that - with any of the outfits in the collage, what do you think?

Pasotti umbrellas are handmade in Italy with the same attention to detail and creative flare as they were in 1956, when Ernesta Pasotti was designing and hand making them herself.  

I have dreamed of owning a Pasotti for many years and was quite pleased to have been surprised with the Pasotti Purple Dahlia last year. I love the double canopy which conceals the frame work of the umbrella with a large dahlia on the inside. Opening the umbrella on rainy days ~ makes me smile ... instead of just opening a plain utilitarian boring umbrella. To learn more about these wonderful umbrella's click here Pasotti , once you see the craftsmanship and hold one - I will be surprised if you too will not be dreaming of having one (if you don't already have one).

Yes, it may be a splurge ... but remember nothing beats the longevity of quality handcrafted. And a High Heeled Life is all about quality - not quantity.

    charlie something, and he devoted an entire chapter
    to the umbrella. it was witty and clever.

  3. If it isn't original I don't want it. Sounds like you feel the same. Great post.

  4. Dearest Celia,
    It feels like being on a roller coaster in early spring. Before spring really will settle with us and STAY... Oh my! Can't blame your day dreaming and I am all with you about the QUALITY statement versus QUANTITY!
    Hugs to you,

  5. I've always wanted a good quality parasol because I hate the sun on my face. Now my biggest problem is to figure out which one I want - so many choices! Love the umbrellas, too, but again, SO many choices. They are now on my "must have" list so thank you for sharing! Such fun.

  6. OK. THAT is the most beautiful umbrella I've ever seen!! I have a thing for them and I think it would be worth the splurge.
    I love the entire board. We have such similar taste. xo

  7. Love the purse! Great collection, love to see you back - sorry its been so very long that I have come by!
