iPhone iLove

Friends, I finally did it. I ordered an iPhone!


I have had a Blackberry since the week I graduated college in 2007. I basically do not know how to exist without it! Odds are, if I am not blogging or eating or sleeping or shopping, I am talking or playing with my phone.


That’s why it’s such a big deal that I finally made the switch! And in a couple days, the white 4S will be in my hands and let’s face it, it needs to be wearing a protective - yet ADORABLE - little cover :) plus my friend Cara tweeted me and asked me for some cute recommendations.


It’s time for a roundup! Let’s go over some of our choices...




As a born and bred LA girl, I have definitely considered one of my favorite brands, Free City, for my first iPhone case. There’s nothing cooler than Free City. Period end of story. So how cool would my phone look with this bad boy slapped on it? ($35)



I love every single one of Kate Spade’s bright and colorful iPhone cases. All reasonably priced between $35 and $40, I truly can’t pick my favorite. Stripes, polka dots, rainbow prints... I love them all!



Wanna hear how weird I am? Months ago, when J.Crew first came out with this leopard cover, I bought it - way before I had even decided to order the iPhone! I just fell in love with the classy leopard print and had to have it. This is a strong contender, yall. What’s more Queen of LA than J.Crew leopard!? ($25)



God knows I love chevron print. And that coupled with a monogram? HELL YES. This fun Etsy retailer Dani Notes is famous in blog-world for her adorable, customizable cases (she’s also got stripes, polka dots, and other geometric patterns) - all totally reasonable at $55!



How cool is this? These brightly colored croc-printed leather cases come with a built-in pocket, so you can slip your cash and credit cards right on top of your phone while stuffing it in a tiny purse or clutch. So convenient! They’re $48 each, and they come in turquoise, pale blue, and a pretty fuchsia.


While I wait for my phone to finally arrive, I need yall’s help! What are your favorite apps? I have a few already downloaded on my iPad, but there’s always room for more... Tell me which ones are the best, which will make my life easier, and which are the ones I have to get!

Please tell me how you like the iphone. I have had a blackberry since Christmas of my senior year and with my tour on its last leg I am considering the iphone plunge.

I love my Kate Spade case. I got it last year, so I can't recommend the same one, but I love how they are raised in the front. Adds a little extra protection. Goodness knows i need it with my clumsy self. :)
