A Case of the Pretties – With Playlist!

July 16, 2015

Are you reading this on your iPhone? If not, is it right there next to you? Chances are you answered yes to one of those questions! Mobile phones are our total besties (who sometimes behave like frenemies). We reach for our phones in the morning even before our beloved coffee to check the weather (hmm…what am I going to wear today?), the news (love love theSkimm), and! *wink.* Our phones join us at lunch with friends, business meetings, dinner dates, the list is endless. We even sleep with them next to our pillow. (Does anyone own an actual alarm clock anymore?)

My question for you is this: when you’ve taken so much care to look as beautiful as I know you do, why are you walking around with a blah and boring phone that doesn’t reflect your style and personality pressed against your pretty earring or held in your manicured little hands?

Your iPhone is an overlooked fashion opportunity! Ringtones aren’t the only way to personalize your iPhone! Forget boring black. Look past the dozen cases (the same dozen cases everyone else in the world is also choosing from) hanging on the wall at the phone store. I’ve curated a collection of covetable iPhone covers that will set you apart from everyone else and show off your sensational style.


I don’t really see many of you sassy android phone users around town but I’m sure you’re out there. I think you should read on anyways. Who knows? When you see all these bijoux iPhone cases you’re missing out on maybe you’ll run right over to your nearest Apple store and make the switch!


We’re on our phones in public all the time these days, whether that’s a good thing or not is certainly up for debate. It’s definitely an opportunity to add a touch of personal expression and style to your look. In my opinion, Case Mate owns the luxe iPhone case category, hands down. Any of the beauties pictured below will elevate your sensibilities and make your iPhone an (almost) welcome addition to any bar top, restaurant table, or office desk.

Snap your phone into one of these and you’ll look darling checking in on while you’re out and about!

I used this case last fall and felt like I was carrying around a treasure. It’s genuine mother-of-pearl and believe me when I tell you that it looks even prettier in person! The case adds a bit of weight to the phone, but remember what we’ve said about suffering just a little if you want to look fabulous? Don’t let that deter you if you like what you see. It’s gorgeous!

Here are some less expensive versions by Recover that look beautiful and aren’t as heavy.

With as much as we are linked to one another and the world through our phones, being able to charge the battery while on the go is a MUST! I love that designer Rebecca Minkoff teamed up with Case Mate to create mobile chargers that are both high style and high performance. The best part? They’re small enough to tuck inside your clutch!

A girlfriend of mine shared with me recently that she’d been admonished by her mother for her cracked iPhone screen. Her mother said, “You wouldn’t drive around town with a broken windshield, so why in the world would you want to show everyone your broken screen?” Amen to that! SuthinGirl needs to get by the Apple store for a teensy screen repair herself. Text me later lovies and let me know how much you adore your new iPhone cover! xx
