Shopping Guide: 20 Not-So-Basic Umbrellas To Tough Out Rainy Days

Yesterday, our shopping guide was, apparently, a little too season pushy. While we were scouring the internet for nude shoes worthy of an outdoor cocktail party, it was pouring outside our window. Today, we’re being a little bit more realistic by rounding up cool, striking, interesting umbrellas. Granted, some people are the kind that always lose things like umbrellas or sunglasses or what have you, so if you’re one of them, maybe sticking with the cheapy $6 street vendor umbrellas is the way to go.

There Is a Site Dedicated to Mocking the New Gap Logo

There Is a Site Dedicated to Mocking the New Gap Logo

Earlier this week, The Gap unveiled their new logo, which was pretty much the most horrible thing that anybody had seen on the internet. Now, they’re backtracking and claiming the logo was a prototype and hasn’t been officially approved yet, but that hasn’t stopped people from ragging on it.
