Uncommon iPhone Cases

My beloved iPhone case flew off the treadmill at the gym one too many times a few weeks ago and was toast. I was heartbroken (and embarrassed) as I gathered up the pieces and threw them in the trash. But, then I thought about how fun it is to get a shiny, brand new case in the mail!

Uncommon makes iPhone and iPod cases and, after hearing my sad story, they generously offered to send me one to check out. Since I haven’t yet upgraded my iPhone, I ordered the 3G Capsule. I have a dock, so the Capsule was a convenient design for me because I can just remove the small bottom portion of the case so that my phone sits nicely in the dock. If you don’t dock your phone, you can check out the one-piece Deflector, Gallery, or Loop cases. They even have an iPad case coming soon.

The best part about Uncommon cases is that you can customize them. While I love their selection of pre-designed cases and collections (love the Paul Frank!), I wanted something customized with the Design Milk logo Luckily, my friend and former intern Catrina Dulay offered to design one for me! Isn’t it awesome?

I love that it arrives in a cute little zipper lock bag:
