Marc by Marc Jacobs "Wild at Heart" iPhone 4/4S Snap Case

Even though I know everyone won't switch immediately to the iPhone 5 (NB: I know I will :) ), I still want to post about this absolutely gorgeous Marc by Marc Jacobs iPhone 4/4S case.

Marc by Marc Jacobs iPhone 4/4S Case

I hope that Marc Jacobs will reissue this case for the iPhone 5 because not only is it beautiful but it is so reliable! I've dropped my phone a few times, on concrete nonetheless, and the phone case only had a minor chip and overall rendered no damage to the phone! With the case on, the iPhone looks and feels slim, and is the tightest fitting case I own. Probably one of the best purchases I've made recently.

...Until the iPhone 5 that is. ;)

Are you getting the new iPhone 5?

Matching Mates: Kate Spade "Fingers" iPad Sleeve and iPhone 4/4S Case

Like I mentioned earlier, I've recently acquired two great Kate Spade items from a Gilt sale a few weeks ago. I'm all about my tech and accessories to go with them. I change my phone and iPad cases very often, so I'm always looking for the next best thing!

In an effort to coordinate my iPad and iPhone (something that never seems to happen with me), I found these great, summery cases, which I'm all too excited to include in my bag. The Florence Broadhurst "Fingers" design is fun and reminds me fondly of island decor. I'm loving the iPad sleeve since it's large enough that I can also have my Apple SmartCover on my iPad to protect the screen. It fits comfortably and really provides a lot of cushion for the tablet. Also, the iPad sleeve is awesome because of the material used. The sleeve can easily be cleaned if something spills on it; something I really like!

As far my experience with the iPhone case, it's really stylish, but obviously because of its material (a rubber case) is a magnet for dust, makeup, and food. I've only used the iPhone case for a little over a week, and it's already really collecting makeup and other dirt on it. I'm planning on cleaning it soon, but as I've had this experience with other cases, I'm not sure if it will completely come off. Nevertheless, it's one of the better cases I own that is both resilient in its protection and stylish.

How often do you switch your cases for your phone or tablet?

Fashion + Technology: Incase Bird's Nest Snap Case

Fashion + Technology: Incase Bird's Nest Snap Case

One of the coolest cases I've seen for the iPhone is the Bird's Nest Snap Case from Incase. Not only is it sleek but on the back of a white iPhone, looks simply stunning.

As I've mused on about before, the intersection of fashion and technology is one of the most fascinating things to me. Both are huge in my life and the fact that I can make them work together is brilliant. The academic side of me longs to delve into pages of  gender studies and technology--the feminine clothing of the stereotyped masculine or neutrally-gendered technology. Is the clothing of technology (or the ornament) simply a 'feminine' thing to do? BUT I SERIOUSLY DIGRESS.

To reference some interesting pop culture: I almost freaked out when I saw THE Serena van der Woodsen using my iPhone case! Apparently Incase has a contract with the CW because each episode in Gossip Girl this season that features Serena using her iPhone has this case! Again, I was so excited. The product placement in this show is amazing!

Louis Vuitton iPhone 4 Softcase in Orient

Nothing is more elegant than soft leather--especially Louis Vuitton's Monogram Empreinte!

This beauty in Orient is just ready to be your phone's protector this summer. Incredibly durable for a soft leather case, I never feel like my iPhone is chancing it by donning some Louis. One of the more "affordable" LV pieces, the iPhone Softcase is perfect if you feel like splurging for an everyday piece to add to your collection.
