    My wife wants a new case for her iphone 4s. She pointed out the Lilly Pulitzer for $35. I read several reviews that all said that the design peels off after a few months

    Any suggesting for something feminine/floral that will last at least a year????

    Anyone have the Kate Spade case? I saw a few bad reviews on the Apple site also.

    Jpf, here are a few suggestions for places to purchase cases. I've used all of them at one point or another, and still do use them when I need something.

    I hope some of these may help you. I do know that skinit and speck have some floral print covers/cases. Perhaps something there will be of interest for your wife

    Forgot one: incipio. No floral print cases, but some nice ones that are good for protecting the phone as well

    Are you sure your wife wants something floral? And last a year? Seriously? What woman uses the same accessory for an entire year. Does she carry the same purse all year round? Wear the same pair of shoes?

    This is a serious decision!

    thanks for your response. Yes, she picked out a Lilly Pulitzer floral pattern. I dont think she will use it every day, all year. I just want something with a quality construction that would last a year. I dont want one that will peel apart after a few months.

    I have the Michael Kors iPhone wristlet. And it is SO worth the investment. It holds my iPhone in a case an some cards some money and insurance papers. My iPhone fits with both the commuter case and the casemate pop. I absolutely love it and it also offers extra protection for my phone !!!

    Candy, I'm still thinking about getting this MK wallet case, I haven't yet. I have a question for you--can you fit the iPhone in there if it has a thin case on it like the speck candy shell, incipio silicrylic or an otter box commuter?
    TIA

    yes!!! it totally fits with the commuter case...i can't comment on the others because i do not have them. I tried with my fiances defender...and I can squeeze it in there...but its probably not good for the stitching...but the commuter case and the casemate pop fit great in there with lots of room to spare...i can even place a chap stick in the top...

    perfect !! thx so much for confirming this for me. BTW, the incipio silicrylic case & candyshell is prob that same size as the commuter or pop case. the defender case i know is big so that i wouldnt even try lol.

    I have the pink Casemate monster. I ordered it through the blueshop on the tipb site. It's a great case overall. It's got a rubbery texture to it making it non slip and the case covers around the edges of the glass for added protection. The cutouts are a decent size, making it easy to plug in necessary chargers, etc. It's compatible with the iPhone 4 and 4s!

    It may not be considered a "designer case" but it sure is a lot of fun!!

    My mom has a Lilly Pulitzer and a Kate Spade. She doesnt love either. They don't work well with screen protectors at all, esp not the kate spade. She bought and returned a Jonathan Adler as well for the same reason. She's gone back to the Speck Candyshell again, and now has a pouch from Etsy that the whole phone / hard case just slips into. Shes' got a ton of those little pouches now to go with her outfits.

    I had a kate spade one, the one that is black and white polka dot on the back and pink around the side. I ended up returning it. It was cute, no doubt...but one drop and the thing busted apart. For $40 I guess I expected more.

    I've been fancying this case! I know Apple sells it, but do they carry it in the stores? I'm cheap :o and found a coupon code "WELCOME" (free ship) for the MK website and they don't charge tax, but I'd like to see it in person before ordering!

    lol I actually have used the same big monster leather bag for almost three years now, which is some kind of damn record. I do plan to replace it sorta this year, with a crossbody version of the same thing in the same color. BORRRRRRING.

    I bought a Kinies bag from Etsy after reading Alli's review and honestly, if I could find it in a soft leather, it would be my last/perfect bag.

    I carry Linea Pelle, specifically a Dylan Zip Tote in Scotch. I am awaiting the release of the Dylan Medium in the same leather which should be any day now. I have beaten the crap out of this bag, and aside from dirt, it looks amazing. It's big, and luggagy, but I can get like 10 magazines, including InStyle, in there, all my toiletries, my gigantic freaky big wallet, and my phone and charger in there and I still have room for more junk. Like snacks.

    Without question! A few of my friends were kind of shocked to see me with a canvas bag, but honestly, the pockets and organization are so awesome! I've purchased so many spendy leather bags with one big cavernous inside, and end up packing them away in the closet... I bought the Classic in navy and I absolutely love it! Thanks for the great tip Alli!!

    Bags have to be functional. If they look great it's a plus. I keep going to department stores and looking at the beautiful bags and wondering what they were designed for, cause the side pockets are only big enough for a single key, and the inside is - as you said - cavernous.

    If I could get this bag in a nice soft lambskin I'd be in heaven!

    holy crooow !! You carry a lot of stuff !! I use either my pink velour JC baby fluffy or a coach bag, and it consists of- my patent zippy wallet, glucose tabs, a pack of gum, My meds, house/car keys and my phone. That's it. I used to carry the "kitchen sink" of a bag but as I got older I got tired of carrying a large bag with things for just in case lol. Now I keep it lite traveling.

    I only carry that much for a flight. If its day to day where no travel is necessary I just have my gigantic Tumi wallet (Capra travel wallet), ray bans in a hard case, a pouch with my ring boxes in them so I can put them on at work, my phone, earbuds in a little pouch, and the in the big front pocket a little zippy pouch with like bandaids and neo and spackle and tweezers ad clippers and whatnot. Then a thing of Splenda and Kleenex. And my bus card case is in the front wall pocket. It's square bec my cards are square. It's generally very empty for its size.
