I'm pretty sure the weather forecast on my iphone this morning said there was a 30% chance of rain, not a 100% chance of snow and hail.
The unpredictability of weather in cities like New York and Boston is why at Amé Amé we recommend every New Yorker carries a feather-light umbrella in their bag or coat pocket at all times so that at the very least they don't have to drop $20 on a cheap unfashionable drug store umbrella. .
However, when you know the day's weather is going to involve cold winds and heavy rain or thick snow flurries, then our #1 recommendation is a bubble umbrella.
If you need an umbrella to share or the bubble isn't your style, then an alternative is a Blunt Light or Blunt Classic Umbrella.
Whether you choose the $40 bubble umbrella or the $69 Blunt Light umbrella, at Ame Ame our #1 desire is for you to not gripe or frown about the weather.
(PS: we also carry bubble umbrellas for kids!)
