Okay, it's no secret that I harbor an active inner child. I strongly suspect that all of my 30-something friends are truly grown-ups and I'm the lone pretender, because I certainly don't feel like 32 most days. (I seem to have a lot of people fooled, though, which is kind of nice.)
Anyway, after drooling over cases adorned with cutesy animals for a while, I figured I should go and look at something a little more...adult. Something more appropriate for those occasions when I want to seem more mature and sophisticated, such as...such as...well, I can't think of any just now. But you know where I'm going with this one.
After much much much browsing, I finally found Fancy Ferris's Etsy shop, and fell in love with the design of her phone cases. A deceptively simple envelope shape...but with elastic on the edges to hold the phone securely, a pocket inside for license/cards/etc, and a detachable wristlet strap. Awesome!! And she has two pages, ya'll, of amazing color and pattern combos to choose from. I went through them at least five times before I finally decided that I liked this spunky little black and pink polka dot number best:
Look, black is sophisticated. No doubt. But a girl needs a little pink, and polka dots never hurt anybody.
This is actually one of the more "muted" combos in the Fancy Ferris shop. I also really really loved this one and this one and this one. And this one. It just really isn't an easy choice.
But all things considered, I'm glad I went with the black and pink dots. Silliness aside, this one is my go-to case for Sunday mornings, not least of all because it matches my Bible cover nicely, and because I can slide in my debit card, clip my keys to it, and not have to haul my whole purse into church with me. It's understated enough for more serious environments, without sacrificing the fun factor...and exceptionally well made to boot.
(All three cases in my giveaways are very well made, in fact. Kudos to all three of the amazing designers!!)
Chyrel - the creator behind Fancy Ferris - is just the sweetest, and reminds me once again why I love doing reviews and giveaways for fellow Etsy folks - I get to meet so many nice people along the way! Be sure to check out her shop, and enter to win one of her beautiful cases for yourself. Good luck picking one, though. Might I suggest eeny-meeny-miney-moe? :)
