About That Black-and-White Polka-Dot iPhone Case…

Published in: Just For Fun

Isn’t it too cute!? It’s the iPhone 4 Hard Cover case by Kate Spade ($40), and it was a gift from El Hub for Christmas.


It consists of two separate pieces of stiff, rather slippery plastic that snap together to protect the phone. I think my previous soft silicone cover was a little easier to hold, but I’m getting used to this one now and remembering to grip it tighter.

If you’re sensitive to sound, the hard case amplifies the clickity-clack sound the phone makes when it’s set to vibrate and ringing on a hard surface, and it gives me a start every time a call comes in!

I’ve already started to notice a few scratches along the edges of the case…but they’re minor. Just something else to think about.

I adore the print and colors, though, and how the design doesn’t cover the camera lens on the back (a HUGE issue with my old case). Overall, it’s a cute case that feels tough and sturdy (albeit a little slippery) in my hands. 🙂

Unfortunately, the case doesn’t come with anything to protect the screen itself, so you might also consider getting one of these.

Your friendly neighborhood beauty addict,

    Love it! Unfortunately, I require an Otterbox. I am always dropping my phone!!! The places at the mall let you open the packages and make your own color choices, which helps. Though not near as cute as this!

    Hmm… as if I couldn’t think of enough reasons to have an iPhone (med schools generally expect some kind of smart phone as a resource), dressing it up in Kate Spade is definitely another! So cute!

    So cute! I just have a boring black bumper 🙁 I also love that you have over 600 pics on your phone 🙂

    Tell El Hub to go again this weekend! They have some more on sale this weekend. So cute! I grabbed some business card holders for an extra 50% off the clearance. 10.00 a pop, but the IPhone cases were sold out at my location.

    that is so adorable!

    Oh my goodness I love it, but I have to brag about my cover. It is a Coach cover and it is 5-6 different colors that coordinate.. I love it so much and it is the same material as the one you have.

  14. Maggie says:

  17. It’s so cute! I decked out my momma’s iPhone for her when Sephora was doing that free case promotion. I think her phone looks much better now 🙂

    i have the same one and i love it! so durable especially if you’re as clumsy as me… 🙂

  22. Shannon says:

    it doesn’t come with a screen protector?? That’s just silly…
    I took a look at the Kate Spade cases for my 4th gen ipod, but ended up going with a plain ol’ robin-egg-blue rubbery case from Best Buy. It’s Belkin – I’m actually liking it a lot.

    My sister got the blk/wh stripped one that keeps coming in and out of stock. It’s super cute but gosh, those iPhone 4 cases just make the phone feel huge!! 🙁
    I have a 3G and waiting til this summer for the 5 to upgrade. I can’t decide whether or not just to stick w/the rubber cases so the ph isn’t soooo big…. ??
    Very cute thou.

  24. Kim says:

    It is soooo cute! I don’t have an iPhone (I upgraded to a Droid before Verizon got the iPhone option) but I think I’d like a softer case, but only if it was as adorable as this one! 🙂

  25. BlovetBeauty says:

    mega pretty! too bad it blocks out the sound

  26. Cas says:

    hi there! chanced upon your site. I would like to ask if the white base of the cover turned yellowish with time. thanks!

  27. Mel says:

    I bought this but I cant figure out how to open it! How do you unsnap the case?

  28. Mimi says:

    Yay so cuuuuuuuute :3

  29. AllisonMariee says:

    I think this case has got to be the cutest thing, evver.! If the price was a little less than $40, just for a hard case…i’d be all over this like peanut butter on breaad!(:
