HtCC: iPhone 5 Cases

My old iPhone 4 was looking a little battered after 2 years, and it was time to upgrade. Alex bought me an iPhone 5 on Monday for my birthday present, and I love it. I hadn’t thought the previous models as heavy and bulky, but next to the new phone, they feel like bricks.

My problem at the moment is that I don’t have a case and there aren’t any cute cases in stores yet. Truly a first world problem, I know.

If I have any patience to wait for delivery though, I’m tempted by one of these…

The stripy Kate Spade case* is my favourite (although the polka dots* is a close second – I have the black with white dots on my iPhone 4), along with the monogrammed one* (or even the gingham one*, which is a lot more stylish than any of my primary school dresses) but these aren’t available until December and Nordstrom are charging about the same amount as the case for shipping and duty. has a huge range of cases (like the clover case at the top or the chevron case underneath) – it seems that you choose the art work and then what format you want it to come in, which also means you can coordinate all your tech equipment to a painting in your office. Perhaps a bit too far?

Let me know if you’ve seen any cute cases in the UK – I can’t keep holding the phone in a death grip!

    have you looked at the iconemesis website at all? in the interests of full disclosure they sent me a free case a while back, but I love it and they do some great designs.
