Carasol Parasol Saves You From The Sun - But Do You Have The Guts To Walk Around With One?

We all know them. The tanorexic. They're slightly orange and never too far from a tanning booth. And as middle age approaches, that sun worship turns their once admirable complexions to a leathery debaucle. At best, they have more wrinkles than their sun-screened counterparts. At worst, they develop skin cancer.

But now a new sun-saving alternative has hit the market. Straight from period films and Gone with the Wind, the Carasol Parasol is a throwback to the days when pale skin connoted high economic status and desirable beauty. Now, it mainly just denotes someone who is willing to stand out in their attempts to avoid UVA and UVB rays.

The Carasol Parasol is designed with UV blocking fabric in ultra-girly styles. Stylish and smart? Definitely. Really something I'd ever use? Probably not.

Because, frankly, while I think this is a good idea… I couldn't actually imagine using it regularly. As I took it out for a spin in the city, numerous people turned their heads upward, looking for the imaginary rain. Others stared. I felt awkward and kind of weird. Maybe on a beach or on a vacation… but on the streets of New York, the Carasol Parasol made me feel a tad out of place. 

For those of you who are braver than me, the Carasol Parasol is available at www.carasolparasols.com and costs between $85 and $325.

What do you think of this new way to battle the sun's rays? Would you sport a parasol around town? Let us know your thoughts in the comments section below.
