Squidarella Umbrella Review and Giveaway

by Migdalia Rivera

Its the second day of Latina On a Mission‘s blogaversary countdown to April 1st.

With April right around the corner, I’m reminded of the saying, “April showers bring May flowers”. I’m hoping the saying will prove true so that I can show off my UrbanTrim Squidarella umbrella yet AGAIN!

Recently, I was given the opportunity to review the UrbanTrim Squidarella umbrella, a very chic and eye catching umbrella. I put it to great use during the past record rainfalls in my area and had some Latinalicious results!

Living near the water the umbrella was put to the ultimate test. It was able to withstand the blustery New York City winds without breaking or bending. It also stood out on the city streets with its eye catching design. I loved the looks I received as I first opened my black and white Squidarella umbrella, especially once the raindrops revealed “rain drop shaped pockets of color”.

As a woman, it reminds me of how I feel when I wear a black skirt suit to the office. Its trendy, stylish, and very polished. However, underneath is a bright sexy camisole, full of color and life. The stoic suit is all you see at first glance, yet under the right elements, the bright sexy camisole can be seen… that is the Squidarella! You’re first greeted by a simple black and white design, very trendy, stylish and polished on its own, however, the eye-popping color changing elements give you an umbrella that is like no other, making you stand out in a sea of black umbrellas.

Below is a short video showing the color changing umbrella in action.


I’m sure after viewing the video you can agree with Time Out New York when it called the Squidarella umbrella “…a wearable piece of art.” You can purchase this ultimate chic and fashionable accessory by clicking HERE.
