Incase Marc by Marc Jacobs Sparks Snap Case for iPhone 5

Incase Marc by Marc Jacobs Sparks Snap Case for iPhone 5

Marc Jacobs heard our call! There are beautiful, new iPhone 5 cases on the market. I plucked this beauty up directly from the Apple Store. Designed by Marc Jacobs and made by Incase, this Sparks Snap Case in Lemon Custard is full of demure custard-yellow sparkles on a gray background. For being a bright piece, it is certainly subdued.

Though sturdy as its predecessors, if you drop it the wrong way you could be out about $39. I always go for Marc by Marc Jacobs pieces, but if you know you are clumsy with your phone, I'd always recommend getting a stronger, shock-absorbent case. This is just a snap-on shell. To reiterate, it isn't shoddily made. It's a great case, but consider how you use your phone. Always a fair warning. :)

The Snap Case doesn't add much weight or bulk to your phone. You can easily slip it into your pocket or bag, and it'll definitely turn heads come spring and summertime! Additional styles of the Marc by Marc Jacobs Incase snap cases are available at the Apple Store or Incase.

Fashion + Technology: ADOPTED Leather Wrap Case for iPhone 5

The wait has been long enough for a sturdy yet stylish iPhone 5 case. Since launch day, I've been using a rather rugged case (which, honestly might be a better choice for me), but concurrently I'm dying for a stylish alternative. Luckily, a trip to the Apple Store alleviated that want.

I just can't get over how nice and heavy the ADOPTED case is. I've tried other "stylish" cases and with one drop I have been out $30 for those cases. Given, this retails for $50 so I'm only hoping that it lives up to its price. It's almost been a week and so far, so good! I've lightly dropped it a few times, but could tell that it is very resilient for the type of case that it is. If you think that you're going to need a something stronger, I would highly recommend a Speck Tough Case or an Otter Box. But if sturdiness and style is calling your name, I'd highly recommend this one!

What's really great about this case is that all ports are open--meaning I don't have to remove the case to dock it on my iHome clock or to charge it normally. The leather surrounding the phone is premium, genuine leather, and the case has a flash ring to not hinder the camera's functionality. ADOPTED's Leather Wrap cases come in five colors:  tan, black, white, blue, & red. In person it is a truly stunning accessory and will give you piece of mind with a side of style.

Gossip Girl Gadgets [Season 6]: iPhone 4/4S Incase Metallic Hammered Snap Case

What's Serena carrying this season? As we saw in season 5, Serena loved Incase's Bird's Nest Snap Case in Silver. Still obviously on contract with IncaseGossip Girl's Serena is now carrying the very beautiful Metallic Hammered Snap Case in Gold.

Also available in Iron (black), Red Copper, and Silver, this case is a beautiful and subdued accessory to your iPhone. I was hoping this case would be available for the iPhone 5, but right now there are only a few lines available in the new sizing. Hopefully Incase will bring it over to the iPhone 5 soon.

I always look forward to seeing the product placement in The CW's Gossip Girl. Some of the best accessories and handbags are featured in the show. Comment below if you see more cool things this season from Gossip Girl!

Are you sad GG will be over this year?

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.

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?

Fashion + Technology: Smythson Turquoise Collection iPad Case

Unwind during this Memorial Day Weekend and reflect on your positives in life--friends, family and loved ones, while honoring those who lost their lives for our protection. Whether you're reading an insightful novel or just a newspaper about Memorial Day events, it's important to have a great case for your iPad--one that is both sturdy and fashionable, of course.

Back in February, I was perusing my Facebook mini-feed, and a picture of this beautiful iPad case caught my attention. Barney's New York had a great post on their Facebook fan page about this Smythson iPad case. New for Spring/Summer 2012 is the Turquoise Collection. Also fitting the new iPad (iPad 3) and iPad 2, this case is both compatible and provides great protection for your device.

The case comes with pockets to easily stash pieces of paper, business cards and even comes with a handy cleaning cloth for your screen. The golden zipper gives a nice contrast--especially with its coral accent. Whenever I saw this case, I imagined myself using it by the pool or while traveling during the summer. This surely is one of my most favorite fashion + technology pieces. If ordered online from Smythson, you are able to personalize the case with your initials.
