I’m really extremely excited right now and I just have to share! Finally after two long years my cellphone contract is set for renewal, which means it’s time for a new phone. Yeayyyy! Obviously this time around I’m going with an iPhone! I had the 1st, 2nd and 3rd generation iPhone but a couple years ago I was going through some sortof anti-iphone stage. Everyone had one, plus I fell in love with the HTC Inspire – huge screen and took awesome photos. But that’s not enough to keep me. I miss not being able to buy cute and stylish designer phone cases, plus there are quite a few apps that I’m missing out on.
So right this very moment I’m sitting here blogging about iPhone Cases while waiting for the delivery man to get here with my new Apple iPhone 5!
Here are a couple of my favorites, in no particular order.
Pierre Hardy Cube iPhone Sleeve. $110
Love the building block coated canvas print – Pierre Hardy’s style signature. One may say slightly M.C. Escher – ish?
I don’t know if this is necessarily a new trend, but I have noticed a lot of camera bag-inspired pieces floating around lately. Weird question… but do people actually use these bags as camera bags? I have always wanted a camera bag, but I really want to use it as a camera bag. The bags you find at the camera store are all really ugly. That is why I am really liking this sudden surge of camera bags from some of my favorite designers. I really love the one you see pictured here. Introducing the Rebecca Minkoff Craig Camera Bag!
I’m a sucker for fashionable tech accessories. Just today, a co-worker of mine couldn’t believe I had a Henri Bendel iPhone 5 case. I see tech accessories just like anything stylish that we would put on our bodies or carry around. We always tend to dress up our technology devices in things that are “so us” or a reflection of who we are. For instance, all my tech accessories are either designer or pink because that’s me. With that said, I fell in love with the Marc by Marc Jacobs Neoprene Tootsie Flower Laptop Case.
I’ve only been an iPhone owner since December and at first I was looking for the perfect cover. I wanted a cover that was me and if people saw it they would say it was so me. After searching high and low, I found the perfect iPhone 5 case at Henri Bendel. It’s simply a woman walking down 5th Ave in New York holding Henri Bendel shopping bags. I love Henri Bendel and it was definitely the best case for me. Now that I’ve found a case I love, I’ve been on the hunt for a wallet that will hold my iPhone, cash and cards. Just today, I was searching in Nordstrom for one and I didn’t fall in love with any of them. Coincidentally I came home and I fell in love with the Tory Burch “Robinson” Smart Phone Wallet. It’s simple and the color is so eye catching!
Obsessed: Saint Laurent Y iPhone Case
Even though the name has changed to Saint Laurent, the fashion house is still holding on to the classic Y line in tribute to the late Yves. Which is fantastic news if you ask me! I love my “YSL” logo bags and I can’t wait to add another to my collection. One that I have on my wishlist is this phone case – all I need is an iPhone to go with it! Right now I have the HTC inspire which I really like but my phone plan is set for renewal in a couple months and when that happens it’s time for a change, and I’m going back to the iPhone.
Marc Jacobs certainly loves his polka dots! The whimsical pattern has appeared in so many of his designs over the years. And while Marc Jacobs is no stranger to polka dots, it does appear he has taken a new interest in them recently. What do I mean by that? Well, this is not the first time this season I have written about a polka dot bag from Marc by Marc Jacobs. There have been numerous polka dot styles from the diffusion line recently. It’s as if they are popping up like… well… polka dots! Pictured here is my most recent find. Introducing the Marc by Marc Jacobs Phone Box Bag!
There is a new trend I have noticed in recent months. It has to do with wristlets and phones. Does anyone know what I’m talking about? It seems everywhere I turn, these things are popping up. They are wristlets with a phone case or holder built into them. Another way to look at it is a phone case with a place to put credit cards built in. I suppose the concept is okay. I mean, it could be convenient if you’re heading for a night out and you want to be able to quickly grab your phone and credit cards. So I decided to take a look at the styles currently available. Pictured here is one that I like. Introducing the Incase Snapshot iPhone Clutch!
With the holidays fast approaching, it is time to start thinking about gift ideas for that special bagista in your life. It is certainly no secret that bagistas love their handbags. But bagistas love other accessories too! So if your budget doesn’t permit the purchase of a gorgeous handbag, there are plenty of other options available. For example, who doesn’t like cool tech accessories? Bagistas love tech accessories just as much as the next gal, perhaps even more! So here are some gift ideas to help her jazz up her smartphone or other tech device.
Cutsie Tech Accessories
Moschino Teddy Bear iPhone Holder – $75
Who doesn’t like a sweet teddy bear? This silicone iPhone holder features a three-dimensional teddy bear design. He’s soft and smooth to the touch, plus he has a sweet little bow around his neck.
I have a slight obsession with looking at tech accessories. I’m about to buy an iPhone 5 and an iPad 3 and I have to have accessories that are incredibly cute. I’m not the the type of girl that can have just any type of cover. I have to love it and it has to say “me” all over it. Which means it has to be pink, incredibly girly, have crystals or something fashion related on it. For me, it’s always important to have accessories that are unique and eye catching. Whether it be with shoes, handbags or tech accessories I like them all to make a statement.
