Coolest. iPhone Cases. Ever.

The time has come, old, shitty blackberry of mine, for us to go our separate ways. You have served me well-ish for just over a year, but your newer, more attractive iPhone rival is calling my name and god daymn does it offer some cool cases.
Most of the cases I've found are handmade, original and so damn chunky and cool they're almost criminal (but too sugary sweet to get mad at). Influenced by Japanese trends, each one is coated in an assortment of random cutesy plastic items that make up the most bright, outlandish and delicious-looking cases which, lets face it, will never get old. You'll have to try reeeally hard to lose your phone with one of these babies on the back.

If you're lucky enough to have one of these cases or something similar, can you tell me whether they're durable? Do the gems and stuff fall off? I'd love to know before I take the plunge and buy myself one!

☩DIY☩ Rhinestone Wedding Garter (Or Glitzy Headband)

Things you need for this DIY:
✝ stretchy lace ribbon
✝ rhinestone appliqué - get one here or here
✝ needle and thread
✝ hot fix rhinestones & rhinestone setter or iron (optional)

Total time:
1 hr

Total cost:
$6 for the appliqué
$3 for the lace
$3 for the rhinestones

If you have planned a wedding or have helped someone plan a wedding then you are probably familiar with the dreaded "wedding mark-up". If you aren't, it's when something costs three times the usual price because everyone knows people will pay out the a$$ for their special day. I find this phenomenon offensive and DIY is my way of fighting back! No I will not spend $200 on a bridal garter! Stand with me ladies!

It was really hard to choose an appliqué, there were so many pretty ones. Can I just put them on everything?

Make sure the lace is very stretchy, you don't want it falling down.

Cut it to the right length.

Find the center and sew on the appliqué.

Arrange the hot fix rhinestones and iron on.

Fold inside out and sew.

Voilà! Make this a little bigger and it would make a gorgeous headband. Or keep it the same size and put it on your dog, I won't judge.

Have a wedding!
