Chicago Must Have: Bubble Umbrella

A few days after my rainy reality check I was on a mission to find a bubble umbrella. It was important that I avoid another unfortunate and oh, so, un-chic windy situation.

Now that I've brought a clear, Totes bubble umbrella home to live with me I find myself wishing for rainy days.

I mean, check out the picture below. That's a view from inside the bubble! I can walk the streets with a perfect sight line and be completely protected from a downpour.

PLUS, it's much more narrow than a traditional umbrella so I only run into half as many people on the sidewalk!

Look at that poor sap with his flimsy little pocket umbrella. One Chicago-strength gust of wind and that thing is toast.

Has anyone else jumped on the bubble band wagon?
