Outfit of the Week: Uma Umbrella




Umbrella: Red Light Vintage

Photos: Lady Leila


Uma Umbrella goes nowhere without her trusty parasol, Prescilla. In the summery, sunny months, the umbrella's red plaid casts a rosy glow on her skin, making her look wildly in love with the world. Her umbrella protects her from the rain, and she loves the sound of droplets hitting the taut cloth, creating a tilted rhythm. Uma loves to use Prescilla in her tap routines, twirling and posing with her as she spins on the stage. While Uma adores dressing in cabaret garb, feather headdresses and discarded bridesmaid dresses, Prescilla is always the center of attention, the piece that pulls the outfit together, and functional accessory, protector, and stage prop.

You look like Mamie in these pictures! (And of course I mean when she was a young Parisian model and starlet.)

Prescilla is very pretty! I love her shape. Modern brollies have nothing on vintage ones!

That umbrella is fabulous and so perfect with the plaid skirt. Always love your amazing outfit charicatures, keep them coming!

It was really cool to run into you in person the other day as well, thanks for coming over and saying hi, you are just as adorable in person :)

Oh, and I got teased for the rest of the day by the family members I was with for being a "celebrity"... haha, they were like "Oh, maybe we can get into this Rainforest exhibit quicker if we tell them we're with Missa."

That place was so packed by the time we left!
