I spent lots of time with Persolé shades while at the villa and I can tell you they are durable, add to any outfit and do a fantastic job of keeping you cool and protected from the sun and the rain.
This is the Chic Shade I bought at the preview party last fall. It’s Olive Ombré with an Hermés-style equestrian print on the inside.
I love the chain on the handle which allows my hands to be free when needed. And the bracelets you see in the picture below, made with Swarovski crystals, double as a rings to keep the shade closed when not in use. When the shade is extended to protect me from sun or rain, I simply wear the rings as bracelets.
Since spending time with the Black Ombre/Skully at the villa couple of months ago, I decided it was time to get one for myself. This silver version is modern and edgy. And I adore the bracelet/stowaway. I wear it even when I’m not carrying my Persolé!
The deep pink color is gorgeous and brightens up any look.
I love the pink jeweled Lucite handle and the ombré.
The pastel Swarovski crystal bracelets/stowage rings are perfect for spring.
This is the interior of the shade. See the center? Lisa designed that herself. Where the handle meets the frame resembles a small flower. So clever!
One last reminder: April’s “How I Wear My” post will be up on Thursday and it’s all about everyday handbags.
Please send me or Jill of Everything Just So a picture of how you wear your handbag (not just a picture of the bag, please!) by April 3 to be featured!
