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.

Rebecca Minkoff M.A.C. Woven & Perforated Clutch

Oh, Rebecca Minkoff, what you do to me!

This is truly a handbag love story. But it doesn't turn out like Romeo & Juliet; it rather ends happily. I have seriously been lusting over this bag for months. There were multiple times I could have purchased it, but it just wasn't the right time. And an accessories addict has to budget themselves. For so long I thought that I had 'lost' the bag. It was no longer available on the Minkoff website, and I hadn't seen it in stores. As a veteran of handbag sales, I know that sometimes you get a second chance and sometimes it is gone as quickly as it was available. Despite my multiple chances, I just couldn't bring myself to buy it for financial reasons. Girl has to eat--am I right?

Luckily, the purse gods blessed me with a Gilt sale on Minkoff bags not too long ago, and I finally grabbed this fun cross-body nearly 50% off retail price. Sometimes it is truly good to wait!

I genuinely enjoy this bag since it's large enough to fit a book or iPad, and room for other small accouterments. M.A.C. Clutches are great for concerts, touring, and for the quick jaunts into town.

Prada Scrunchy Driving Moccasin

When I saw these shoes, they immediately reminded me of my aunt. Ever since I was a little girl, my aunt's style has really inspired me. She always has the cutest shoes, to-die-for handbags, and most appropriate taste in putting together an outfit. Her love for designers like Prada and Chanel, and her low-key but high class taste continues to inspire my own fashion sense. So, I had to take a picture when I saw these!

Loafers...moccasins...whatever you like to call them--are my favorite kind of shoe! They are comfortable but also exude a classy, casual elegance to an outfit, especially when paired with demure clothing and handbag. Perfect for the office, no doubt. These are beautiful Prada driving moccasins in nude. The colors available are diverse--from a forest green to metallic gold, a bright pink, metallic silver, a cognac-looking brown, and black. There might be more colors, but having seen those in person, the nude and forest green were my favorites! I had to try them on, and they are extremely comfortable, providing good support. I'd recommend these without a doubt!

Do you love loafers?
