A Case Study

April 18, 2013


We all know that accessories make the outfit. A standard black blazer and pants pairing suddenly pops when adorned with a bright bag. A hat adds a whole new dimension to  an outfit, both literally and figuratively. And braces bring a muted sparkle to a crooked smile. While we will forever have these essential accessories like bags, hats, shoes, and orthodontia, I’d like to welcome a new addition to the elite group of accessory swag. The iPhone case.

While the first iPhone case was invented to “protect” the phone from shattering, it has since become an accessory that essentially defines who we are. Harajuku girls cover their phones in rhinestones, rainbows, and cats. Businessmen keep things sleek in black, chrome, or leather. And the bull in the china shop goes for beefy (inappropriate?) cases that can take a beating or chuck across the room. You could look like the grumpiest gal on the L train, but if I see you whip out an iPhone case with cat ears, then I’ll now you’ve got some silly lighthearted side to you. Or that you’re a crazy cat lady. But I digress…

The thing is that most people buy one iPhone case and stick to it. But I am not most people and am about has fickle as it comes with iPhone couture. I probably change my cases more often than parents change their kids’ diapers. Similar to the way I approach my closet every morning, I pick my iPhone case based on my mood. Am I bear phone girl today or is it time for astronaut cat? Judge my fickle attitude as you will, but my iPhone is with me 24/7 so why shouldn’t it get its very own outfit…or closet? Not convinced? Then just see what these iPhone cases add to the looks below.


“Excuse me, is that the new Chloé mini?”

“No, it’s just my iPhone case.”

Yes, ladies and gentlebeans, Giovanna Battaglia has gone so far as to forego any sort of purse by adorning her mobile device with a strap. Call it what you will, but I’m dubbing this the purse of the future. Who knows, maybe that flap opens up and you can store your credit cards in there.


Moschino is at the forefront of the fashionable tech world, getting teddybears and geese onto the iPhones of fashion’s A-pack each season. Mother Goose and Teddy Ruxpin aren’t just for kids anymore — and neither is Mickey Mouse.


And then we have our don’t-mess-with-me-girl. She’s got her studded army jacket, a blingy necklace (recognize that?) and a brass knuckle iPhone case that probably isn’t very good for fighting but I wouldn’t want to get hit by it anyways.


This girl and her owl case are the perfect example of the powers of the iPhone case as an accessory. Here you have a girl on the run, dressed in a basic black trench and sunnies — not very exciting. But then pow! That hooting blue owl and it’s bulging eyes make her look worthy of a street style snap! You just wouldn’t get that with a caseless phone now wouldya?

I’m going to wear the dickens out of these two pairs of 7 for All Mankind jeans this spring! The dickens I tell ya!


I love a busy week. I may complain about the chaotic schedule Monday through Thursday, but once Friday hits I feel like a weekend of mellow-yellow time is that much more deserved. This week was scattered with lots of spring collection previews, a photo shoot, brainstorming meetings for fun new projects, and a super awesome cold that’s finally making its way out of me for the weekend.

This is one of my favorite times of year because spring collections are just beginning to hit the racks, which means lots and lots of mid-season sales (there are some really awesome ones happening on Yoox, Shopbop, and ForwardForward right now — you can thank me later). But alas I do not plan to spend my weekend swiping my credit card from dawn to dusk (though wouldn’t that be lovely were their no consequences). Instead I have my weekend booked up with Nora Ephron’s play Lucky Guy tonight, a fun lunch tomorrow, the musical Cinderella tomorrow night, and a celebratory birthday brunch in the park for Finn on Sunday. Seems to me that the winter slump has finally gone back into its dark hibernating hole and spring is here to play!


Morning light shooting into my room in Connecticut.


I have a lot of iPhone cases, but this one might be my favorite.


That time I took too much NyQuil and slept through my alarm only to be woken up by the team coming to shoot in my apt that morning.


Orange these the best sandals for spring/summer?


Happiest of birthdays to my wonderful little lamb Finnley!

{ My collection of Converse }

So much for a week that started off great, I’m now horizontal, in my bed, with the flu. My friend Erin kindly reminded me that this always happens to me after Fashion Week (except that one time I got the flu right in the middle of the week), so I’m hoping for a speedy recovery so that I may watch the Oscars sitting upright, champagne glass in hand.

Forgive me for being brief today but hopefully I’ll be back up and blabbing by Monday! Until then, check out some bits before I was taken under by a 102° fever.
