Let me first start off by saying that I swore that I would not cave in getting the Apple Watch. Well, being the Apple fan girl that I am, it just took one fitting appointment with a sharp Apple associate, and I was sold. Read more!

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.

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.
