As soon as I saw that artist Jessica Swift has a new line of cell phone cases via Case-Mate {the one on the left is called “Lush”}, I rolled my eyes and kicked myself under the table: why hadn’t I thought to get a fun, beautiful case like hers for my new phone!? I had ordered a gorgeous case from Valentina Ramos for my iPhone a while back, but when I got my Samsung Galaxy S3 in July, I went to the Verizon store and bought a basic black-and-white case. Booooorrrrrrring. I mean, it protects the phone well – but I’d be happier if my phone added a little color and creativity to my day.

So, for this edition of the Weekend Swoon, I’m sharing a few new faves I found online. Not sure I’ll have the willpower not to buy one!

P.S. Got a case you love? Where’s it from? If you love one here, pin it – I’d love to get a feel for which ones you’re swooning over!

You’ll never mistake your phone for another with these adorable, personalized cases from Dabney Lee – right with your name written across it! Lots of designs to choose from for iPhones and Blackberry devices via Layla Grace.

So cute! Love the vintage chic feel of this woodgrain case for the Samsung Galaxy SIII! Check out case maker ATwood design on etsy – so many darling designs!

I love how Petunia Picklebottom has used their pretty fabrics to grace iPhone covers {the one above is called Santiago Sunset}. Even better, you can get the same fabrics in accessories ranging from aprons to luggage tags {wouldn’t it all make a darling gift!?}.

Totally tubular! Put on some leg warmers and carry this cassette tape cell phone case around, available for the Samsung Galaxy SIII via Cases Will.


Beep beep! Saw this iPhone case on Pinterest – handmade by vergacraft on etsy to look like a VW bus!

Isn’t this cool? Loving this 3D “Chateau” cell phone case for the iPhone 4/4S from SwitchEasy. Comes in other colors, too.

So fun to see all those colored pencils on this Samsung Galaxy S3! Brilliant idea for artsy peeps!


I am totally head over heels for this cell phone case! Love this little heart-buttoned robot, featured by duitang.  Maybe not very functional – but super cute!

P.S. I’m part of the Verizon Wireless Midwest Savvy Moms program, which means they gave me a fancy pants phone, six months of service, and the freedom to honestly share my thoughts with you – including my phone case envy! 🙂
