Dress your Gadget to the Nines

DRESS PHONES TO THE NINE 003

This post was suppose to be up yesterday, but a certain belle (you have a 50/50 chance of guessing right) couldn’t find our SD card. *deep semi dramatic sigh* Alas, the post is here for all of you fab peeps that have emailed us about dressing your lovely tech devices with the cutest fashions after viewing our live segment on Saturday. Let’s face it, we’re in the digital age where almost everyone, *laughs* including dogs, uses social media. Mainly how do we all use social media? With our mobile techs of course!

Check out how they look with their flaps closed below!!

These belles don’t leave the house without a cute stylus for our mobile devices (our blinged out styluses pictured above are dopeness). The sis has an iPad Air & I have a Samsung Note 10.1. We both have iPhone 5‘s. Honey, our 5’s stay dressed to the nines! Those of you who know us very well know that we’re always changing it up. Why? Because like anything else, changing accessories help our tech devices stay even cooler.

Do we spend a lot of money on them? Heck NO! Our fave place to purchase these type of items is Amazon. They should make us brand ambassadors as we get shipments on a regular! They have plenty of vendors to choose from, fast shipping (get Prime– I. LOVE. IT.), & will replace/refund an item that you don’t like without any hassle. You don’t even have to pay shipping to return items. We’ve found cute phone cases for as little as $3. My blinged out case above was less than $11 compared to plenty of peeps selling them for double & even quadruple. Check out the rest of our pics & our tips below!

The two cases on the right were less than $6! The leopard case was purchased from Alexis Boutique

This purple/teal Belkin case is so sleek & lightweight, but adds fierceness to my phone.

Tips for owning the perfectly styled tech devices:

1. Purchase a stylus… any stylus. A stylus keeps your clean oily fingers from streaking your phone. Don’t you haaaaate that? Lord knows I do. I don’t like the phone screen protectors at all. Also, a stylus makes navigating/texting on your touch screen devices even more easy & F-U-N! Win!

LOVE my mini stylus for my iPod

2. Find items that have the double f’s: Fashionable & Functional. Check out our example below. The phone case on the right has a wrist strap & a place to house cash/an i.d. & a few business cards if need be.

3. Play with different textures, patterns, etc. If you are afraid of doing so with your wardrobe…do so with your tech accessories. These are perfect conversational pieces. Trust me. They start convos for me all. of. the. time.

4. Make your own phone case. There are countless YouTube vids & you can purchase your must-haves via Amazon or any craft store. I’m working on making one soon. I have all my supplies so stay tuned.

Isn’t the cassette tape phone case cuuute. I also have it in a beautiful teal color. Less than $3!!!

This black Incipio phone case is a dream (less than $25). On days when we don’t feel like carrying a purse we use this. It snaps back at the bottom with a hidden place to store cash/cards/the works. We purchased ours from Verizon Wireless (mine is white to add contrast to my black iPhone). Too cool for school & my purse. I’ve never lost a phone & don’t plan on it, which is why this is one of my faves!

Oh before a belle forgets. See that black device above?  It’s called Mophie & Shermika & I both have the dual port model. It’s basically a portable charging station. This little mobile device will allow you to charge your tablets/cellphones/any USB enabled devices while on the go for up to 5 times depending on usage/device. It’s lightweight & easily fits in your bag.

These will run you $99 or less, & we purchased them from the Apple store. The single port mophie is a lil less expensive too. They are easy to use & are always a life saver for us when we can’t hunt down a plug to recharge our devices. Used one before? Do you dress your devices?
