Is Your iPhone Looking Fabulous?

  We would once be considered on trend and stylish just by the mere fact of owning the latest lifestyle gadget, be it the latest MP3 player, tablet, mobile phone, e-reader ¬†and so on and so forth. These little technological devices were once a worthy testament to our fashion savoir faire - particularly any device designed by Apple and predominantly the iPhone - because everyone needs a phone and any fashionista knows it needs to be an iPhone. Such a staple have these little pieces of technology become and so dear to us they are, that we are no longer merely protecting our iPhones in functional cases, we're embellishing and adorning them like we embellish and adorn ourselves.

I've never been one to play around too much with pattern and print, at least not since the devastating logo mania nineties, when it was paramount that all my skirts and jeans had to be from Moschino and had to be covered in crazy Moschino prints! (Please don't judge me...then again isn't that what fashion is all about? Judge away if you will!) Since then however, asides from the staple breton stripes and polka dots, my wardrobe consists...
