Great Umbrella For It's Size
I received this umbrella in the Midnight Blues pattern. It is vibrant in pattern and color, matching the Grand Traveler, Weekender, and other accessories I purchased earlier this season. The sleek size allows it to slip easily into pockets making it readily accessible. I tuck mine in my purse when I am on the go and the weather is threatening. It is small in size but provides adequate coverage from the elements. It does not have an auto button yet it raises and lowers with ease manually and folds nicely thus allowing it to slip back without difficulty into its carrying sleeve. I am pleased with this product and I have purchased one for my daughter.

short on specifics
Not enough info here to make up my mind - what are the dimensions of this umbrella?

Ok, but not great
My mom bought me an umbrella (not the mini one) for my birthday in Va Va Bloom. I never used it and now I like Jazzy Blooms better, so I asked her to exchange it for that color. Neither of us realized that Vera makes 2 different umbrellas, so she ended up accidentally returning it and buying me the mini umbrella. I was confused when I got it and saw that it had no button for automatic opening and closing. So we figured out there are 2 different umbrellas and went back and got the right one. But now that I've looked at both of them, I can easily say the normal umbrella is so much better. The mini one is not that much smaller, and it doesn't come with the automatic open/close button. Also the handle is really really small. However, if you don't mind that, you will probably like this umbrella. It's a convenient size, and just as cute as the normal umbrella. However, if you don't need a super tiny umbrella, go for the regular sized one.
