Say hello to the newest addition to my phonecase collection, Daisy II! I briefly Instagrammed and included a photo of her in my Week in Photos over the weekend, but thought I’d pop a quick post up about the case to answer the questions that came in thick and fast.
My phone (Sony Ericsson Xperia Ray, which I’d highly recommend for anti-iPhoners, for those wondering) is notoriously hard to buy cases for. I don’t think it’s any surprise that I adore a good old personalised phonecase, I guess it comes with the stereotypical Chinese girl image, but I’ve always liked to adorn my phone with something a little different!
I ended up hand-making this phonecase: the outer, hard shell was a cheapie from eBay – any plain one will do, although I chose white to match the pearl dekoden pieces – and I found a reasonably priced set of Daisy by Marc Jacobs inspired supplies with a little bit of searching on Etsy. The seller I used was Happybeadsupply, who I’d thoroughly recommend, and I just sat down for half an hour with my sister and a tube of extra-strength adhesive, and placed the cabochons wherever I liked them! I love how my case turned out and it’s very ‘me’ as well as rather ‘Daisybutter‘ too!
I also picked up an earphone plug, which is a little device to stop dust/dirt from getting into an unused earphone socket. Unfortunately the matching daisy I ordered broke in transition, I’m assuming, so I’ll be sending this one back. Again, there are plenty on Etsy! What do you think of slightly brash phonecases? Or do you prefer something a little more demure? ♥
