Cute but flimsy
I received this umbrella free with purchase and I'm glad it was free. It is very cute and I love the turquoise color of the handle and the umbrella tip. The plastic is very thin and the metal support rods are thin as well. I don't think it will last through a windy day. I used it the other day when it was drizzling outside and it actually collapsed closed on me. The retail price is way high for this item. I have purchased other brand name umbrellas at a much lower price that were built more sturdy than this one. Too bad though, because it is adorable looking.

I got this in the promo offer and I am glad it was free. I have never seen an umbrella so cheaply made. The plastic is ultra thin and the frame is not much better. I love Vera, but this one misses the mark completely. If the plastic were thicker I would buy a lot to give as gifts. I cannot see this lasting more than a few good storms here.

I got this for Christmas as I was contemplating this style for quite some time. My fiance picked it up in canteberry magenta for me for christmas and then we went later for it in Olivia Pink. I have to say, this is my favorite umbrella style! I love how it goes around my shoulders and stuff and it protects my phone while looking at it and my shoulders! I love it and will be using this more than my other umbrella! Very cute especially when spring is coming up!
