New Designer iPhone Cases by PLIA Designs

If you don’t know that iPhone cases are the hottest item in the fashion world, we are here to tell you all about them. It’s not a secret that the iPhone continues to dominate the world of smartphones. Everyone I know owns an iPhone. Who doesn’t do a double take when we see someone using an old-school flip phone. I want to purchase a flip phone simply for the kitcsh factor because they do look cool. It’s hard to remember a time when I couldn’t check my email and scroll through social media apps on my phone. Remember when you’d go away on vacation, didn’t take your laptop, so you had to wait and check email upon returning. It always seemed so long to have to wait until you got home to read emails. Now we simply take our iPhones with us everywhere and there are no long waits. With all of us glued to our iPhones, it’s no wonder that iPhone cases and have accessories have caught on like wild fire. When you are using your phone, everyone sees your case. It doesn’t make sense to put a cheap cover on your expensive iPhone.

Design houses and famous fashion labels are putting their mark on iPhone cases. They are designing for the fashion forward, tech oriented fashionable who can’t put her iPhone down. I’m the perfect audience for this influx of iPhone cases. I change my iPhone case at least four to five times a week. I can’t stand to have the same iPhone case on for too long. I have two drawers in my closet simply dedicated to iPhone cases. Friends and family know to buy me iPhone cases on my birthday and Christmas. It’s impossible for me to go shopping without stopping to browse and shop for iPhone cases. When I have free time at work my absolute favorite thing is to browse and shop online for designer iPhone cases. The accessories brand that makes my favorite iPhone cases is PLIA Designs.

If you aren’t familiar with PLIA Designs, they make a luxe range of handbags and accessories. Hands-down they make my favorite iPhone cases. PLIA Designs’ latest capsule collection of iPhone cases is inspired by macarons, French pastries, their Westie mascot and a few of her furry friends. I’ve never seen such amazing iPhone cases. The macarons and French pastries such as the St. Honoré are like nothing I’ve seen before. The designs are so intricate and resemble works of art. They remind me of little paintings by artists from a previous era. There are no iPhone cases on the market that match those by PLIA Designs. Flipping through several high fashion glossies this week I noticed PLIA Designs iPhone cases over and over again. The fashion world is going nuts over PLIA Designs designer iPhone cases and it’s easy to see why. Their two macaron cases have a three month wait list. If you can get your hands on a PLIA Designs iPhone case, you will love it. Promise!

Liven Up Your iPhone With all New Cases

Time and time again I find myself amazed at the amount of fashionable people that don’t really care what sort of iPhone case they use to protect their beloved tech device. Many of these well dressed and stylish people work in and around the fashion industry. If these individuals take great care to dress well each day, one would think they would also take their iPhones into consideration. After all, if you use your iPhone in public, everyone sees what is on its back. It doesn’t take a lot of though or shopping to find cute iPhone cases; they are everywhere. From dollar stores to high-end luxury boutiques, iPhone everywhere. If you are in the market for a new iPhone case, the trick is to find one you really like.

My favorite designer iPhone cases are found online. They are made by PLIA Designs and it seems everyone else loves them as well because they are often sold out.  The last time I ordered a case from PLIA Designs, I should have ordered more as there is now a wait list a mile long. Their new French pastry collections is off the charts and straight up sick. I’ve never seen such detailed art work as on the back of these cases.  The company calls them ‘pops of art for the iPhone’ and they couldn’t be more correct. I almost exclusively use only PLIA Designs iPhone cases and indeed they feel like I’ve protected my phone in little pops of art. People  always stop me to inquire where my iPhone case came from. Without hesitation I tell them where they can find PLIA Designs’s iPhone cases although I’ve probably added to so many of them being sold out. My collection of PLIA Designs designer iPhone cases keeps growing.

I’ve found that iPhone cases make the perfect gifts.  When I have the time, I log onto PliaDesigns.com and order as many iPhone cases as possible. They already look giftable as they are packaged so well. They are almost too cute to unwrap. I’ve had many friends scream with excitement when they receive one of PLIA Designs designer iPhone cases. They can’t believe how adorable they are. Then they are even more excited when they put the case on the back of their iPhone. No one puts a PLIA Designs iPhone case up to their ear without feeling deliriously happy. It’s come to my attention that my friends now buy these special iPhone cases for gift giving of their own. Not only are they a hit for birthdays, they make the best gifts under the Christmas tree.  They also make great stocking stuffers.

The bright art work on PLIA’s designer iPhone cases are unrivaled. You won’t find better looking iPhone cases. The iPhone isn’t going anywhere, so you best start accessorizing yours with the best cases possible.

The World of Designer iPhone Cases

We live in a designer world. You can’t open a glossy fashion magazine without spotting designer handbags; there are designer shoes; designer cars; even designer babies. You can now practically choose the looks of your future baby. Not all designer fashion is equally made. I’ve seen $2,000 handbags that do not warrant such a high price tag. They are crafted of less than stellar leather and their interiors are often cheap as if they are an afterthought. It’s annoying to mull over a lovely handbag only to find that the inside is made up of cheap, flimsy fabric and plastic zippers. I equate the interior of a handbag to that of a house. One would believe that a beautiful exterior of a home would also lead inside to an equally as pretty interior. It’s expected that a luxury handbag would reveal a beautiful interior. Not only do I expect my designer handbags to be well crafted, but also other accessories such as iPhone cases.

Designer iPhone cases have really taken off over the past two years. Their popularity is not surprising considering how many of us are glued to our smartphones. I’m guilty as charged. I probably check my email on my iPhone at least 20 times a day if not more. I’m glued to Instagram; it’s my favorite social media app. I love keeping up with my friends and even work colleagues on Instagram. Instagram is so easy to use since posts are based around a single image or a collage of images. Other social media apps require too much text and their layouts are often cluttered. It’s distracting to log onto to a site or an app and there is too much text, too many ads, and essentially too much on one page. I prefer clean layouts for most websites and that includes those I use for social media. Since Instagram has a clean layout, that’s where I spend most of my time catching up with friends. One major fashion trend on Instagram are cute iPhone cases. It seems that nearly every fashionable in the social media sphere have large and growing collections of unique cases. I love this trend. Iphone cases photograph well and it makes sense they are so wildly popular on Instagram.

Through Instagram, I discovered PLIA Designs. They make a beautiful range of designer iPhone cases. There are many Instagram stars who photograph their PLIA Designs iPhone cases on a near daily basis. Not only are PLIA cases cute, they are also protective. The protective design they use is fairly slim. I don’t like using a bulky case to protect my iPhone 6+. I’m happy to admit, I own every case. Who wouldn’t love an iPhone case covered in delectable French pastries? Macarons aren’t only to eat, now they have a purpose in the tech world as well. Macarons are tech chic if you will. I love that PLIA cases are original and unique. I know that no everyone will be covering their iPhone in these cases. They are for those in the know. It’s easy to see why PLIA Designs has the bases covered when it comes to designer iPhone cases.

Fashion in the Digital Age

It’s a good time to be in fashion. We are at the cornerstone of fashion and technology becoming united even more so than ever before. There has always been a relationship between technology and fashion, however now the ties are even closer. One of the most obvious fusions of fashion and tech is through online shopping. Ecommerce now makes up trillions of dollars in retail revenues. Recent reports have many department stores lagging in sales. For brick-and-mortar fashion, it’s not necessarily a good time. Famous department stores no longer have foot traffic from years gone by. A decade ago it was hard to find a parking spot at the local shopping center. Now it’s not uncommon to see stores and boutiques empty on Saturday afternoons.

One reason for the demise of shopping centers is because over the years stores didn’t update enough inventory and their physical appearance. It’s a letdown to walk into a famous department store hoping to discover fashionable gems only to be met by dirty carpets and unkept clothing displays. And we all know the horrors of fitting rooms. Fitting rooms are synonymous with dirty public restrooms. It seems difficult for stores to keep public areas clean. It wouldn’t take a lot of resources to make visible changes. For instance stores could dedicate a certain allotment of money to be spent on replacing carpets. They could go region by region in the beginning. Small changes such as the carpets make a huge difference. Not every store needs an entire renovation, but many of them do need cosmetic tweaks and upgrades. Shoppers want to be wooed and surprised. Dowdy stores will not encourage them to open their wallets. Sales associates also need to be trained properly. They need to go out of their way to make sure their counters are cleaned and polished. Associates also need to keep clothing racks tidied and fitting rooms clean with clothing regularly picked up and put away in its proper place. You will notice that many of the sales associates have a better work ethic than their younger charges. It’s not surprising as we live in a time where an old-fashioned worth ethic will be extinct within a few short years. These are several good points for stores at the corporate level to keep in mind as we discuss fashion in the digital age.

In the past few years, ecommerce has really hit its stride. There are fashion sites for every taste and bank account. If you want to buy a $20.00 pair of espadrilles, you can. If you need a $3,000 handbag, one is easily a click away. Designer fashion has never been so readily available as it is now. That is not a bad thing. If you don’t live near a major city or fashion capital, you can still dress as well as any fashionable around the globe. If you have collect designer iPhone cases, you can find them on nearly any high-end fashion site. In this digital age, fashionable designer iPhone cases, such as those from PLIA Designs, are in-demand and selling out fast.

The Best iPhone Cases for Fashion Week

With fashion week upon us, one of the hottest topics will be tech. More specifically, how fashion and tech fit together. Fashionistas from all over the globe will descend upon New York with high expectations. They are seasoned style stars that already have their looks and wardrobes artfully assembled. These are not people who need to be taught fashion for they are the leaders within the industry. Today’s fashionable is highly educated and has developed a style of her/his own over the years that reflects their personality and sense of style. It’s refreshing when not everyone has the same style or way of dressing. New York fashion week never disappoints when it comes to endless style and enviable wardrobes.

It should be of no surprise that fashion and tech are related. The two are often grouped together because there is obvious overlap within the industries.Take Apple’s iPhone for instance. It’s a huge hit the world over and has many adoring fans. The fashion world can’t put down their iPhones. Apple has always been a hit with with the fashion crowd, but the iPhone truly sealed the brand’s worldwide popularity. Many of us grew up using Apple computers. So for those of use that had Apple in our lives from an early age, then the iPhone seemed like a natural progression. However if you were not used to using an Apple computer, the iPhone was an entirely new and beautiful discovery. Other computer brands come across as clunky both in easy of use and design. Nearly every Apple product is thoughtfully designed and sleek the eye and touch. There is a consensus among iPhone users that it is the only smartphone they will ever use. Because technology has advanced so much in the past decade, the fashion world wants to be a part of it as well.

One area of tech and fashion that is flourishing are designer iPhone cases. Everyone wants to wrap their beloved iPhone into the best cases available. New York fashion week will be flooded with only the most luxurious and amazing iPhone cases on the market. These iPhone cases are the perfect intersection of tech and fashion. Every fashionable with an iPhone will not only arrive to NYC with one iPhone case, but several. It’s not unusual for someone to change their iPhone case up to three times a day. Tech wardrobe changes if you will. By far some of the most wildly popular designer iPhone cases on the market are by PLIA Designs. PLIA Designs makes the most original iPhone cases on the market to date.

What makes these cases stand out from the rest are their custom designs. The designs on the back of each case are first painted by hand on traditional art canvases. When your iPhone is cradled in a PLIA Designs iPhone case, it is an entirely luxurious way to protect your iPhone. In fact, PLIA’s cases remind me of little works of art. The best designer iPhone cases for Fashion week are by PLIA Designs. There is a wait list a mile long, so if you already own one or several, you are the lucky one!

Important Tech Accessories

Over the past six months I’ve noticed an interesting development in the world of fashion.  More specifically within in the world of accessories.  Handbags have always been popular with consumers.  Throughout a span of ten years, handbags have continued to sell at an incredibly fast pace.  It seems as though you couldn’t open a fashion glossy without starting at thousand and two thousand dollar handbags.  A certain type of consumer even evolved around these handbags.  This specific handbag consumer would never think of spending a months rent on clothing and shoes, but she somehow came around to accepting the high price tag for handbags.  It’s fascinating that a large group of consumers who at one time would have balked at the price of a designer handbag, have now come around to accepting it.  However, there has been a slight shift within the layers of the accessory world and many consumers aren’t purchasing as many handbags as they once did.

Consumers are starting to move away from handbags and into other areas of accessories.  Small leather goods are starting to sell at a very swift pace.  Large and small wallets a like are growing in popularity.  Nearly every fashionable carries a wallet, so it makes sense that leather wallets are popular.  I also believe shoppers are weary of handbags with hefty price tags.  Perhaps some realized over time that the handbags simply aren’t worth it or they didn’t live up to the hype.  I’ve heard from several friends and shoppers who have emailed me that their dream bags fell apart after only a few times carrying them.  Can you imagine saving your hard earned money and handing over twelve hundred dollars for a lovely handbag for it to fall apart only a few months after purchasing?  I would be livid to say the least.  What has happened to old-world craftsmanship?  Where did the time and dedication it once took to craft a product disappear to?  And will this sort of craftsmanship ever return?  As a consumer and a writer, I’d like to know.  Believe me, I’ve owned many well known handbags over the years and some are still a part of my wardrobe, while several didn’t hold up as well as expected.  Simply put, quality is just as important today as it was decades ago.  We still expect our products to live up to their hype and to last past several wearings.

In the past year, tech accessories have exploded.  Shoppers now see beautifully designed tech accessories displayed alongside expensive handbags, wallets, and leather goods.  It should be of no surprise how much we all love our smartphones.  I’m constantly glued to my iPhone.  If someone took my iPhone away, I’d probably break down in tears and throw a tantrum.  I love seeing the growing niche of tech accessories.  I have a growing collection of designer iPhone cases.  I love my iPhone cases and I’m constantly stopped to be complimented on them or to be asked where they were purchased.  Designer iPhone cases are perhaps one of the most important accessories in the marketplace at this time.

The New Tech Accessory

I’m an accessory addict.  From shoes and jewelry, to designer handbags, I have collections of all of them.  My accessories collections are so vast that I have to rent extra storage space.  Luckily the storage space is near my home so I can stop in and take items when I need them.  I own several handbags made of exotic skins and those are stored in temperature controlled cabinets.  My love affair with accessories began early.  I grew up in a home where fashion was revered.  My great grandfather was one of the top designers in Paris during his day.  The fashion house he founded is now one of the most famous brands in the world.  Open any glossy fashion magazine and you will see slick advertisements for his brand.  Our family still owns a percentage of the brand.  When generations of your family are entrenched in the fashion business, it makes sense that I would be a part of that world as well.  When my mother was little, the seamstresses that worked for my grandfather, made her beautiful one of a kind dresses.  In turn, I wore many of those well preserved frocks when I was little.

From a young age I learned and absorbed what hard work really goes into fashion.  Most people see fashion from a different perspective.  The average consumer thinks fashion entails shopping and picking new outfits and accessories.  What most don’t understand is all of the hard work behind the products you purchase.  With couture, all of the dresses and new designs are handsewn.  If a certain ball gown has a lot of accoutrements such as beading, the product can take weeks to make.  Sewing is a skill that takes time to master.  Not everyone has the patience to learn to become a good seamstress.  Couture will last a lifetime, actually, many lifetimes.  I’m astounded at some of my great-grandfathers couture pieces.  They are as relevant today as they were all of those decades ago.  The brand’s archives also house many accessories.  I love going through the archives for accessory inspiration.

This summer I’m working in the brand’s accessories department.  I’m a freelance accessories designer and I love working with the label my great-grandfather founded.  Because it’s so large, it’s more than a family business, but that doesn’t stop me from going through the archives any chance I have.  It’s important to understand any labels history of design before moving forward in this modern world.  At the moment I’m creating an edited line of tech cases for them.  We are all glued to our iPhones and it makes perfect sense to create a few beautiful designer iPhone cases.  I’m collaborating with a famous artist who will create illustrations for the backside of the iPhone cases.  I’ve already heard from several fashion editors that they can’t wait to get their hands on my new iPhone cases.  Truthfully, I can’t either.  We live in a modern world and we need up-to-date accessories for the time in which we are living.  Designer iPhone cases are the newest in luxury accessories.

A New Day and a New Handbag

We have all been there.  You need a new handbag, but you don’t exactly know what to buy.  In my case, I need a new handbag for work and travel.  I prefer it to be the same bag and use them interchangeably.  But if you have been shopping and browsing the stores lately, you know how dull many of the large work bags are.  They look like something an insurance man would carry to a conference in Ohio.  They are bulky, not fashionable and often constructed of boring black nylon.  Not something I exactly want to carry when working in the fashion world.  When you work in an industry like mine, everything you wear and carry is judged.  I hate to say it and I know it sounds bad, but we live in a world where you are now your own brand and you have to present yourself in the best way possible at all times.  Not that fashion has made me self-centered, but I work around stylists and editors all day which means I like to be on my A game.  Over the years I’ve developed my own style which I’m proud of.  I prefer an elegant, but understated look.  Charcoal cashmere and relaxed pants?  Basically my look all of the time except in summer.  I need the perfect work handbag that matches my relaxed but polished look.

Last night I sat down with a stack of new fashion magazines and of course a glass of wine.  Flipping through each one, I marked each page that contained a large handbag that I liked.  There were several large handbags that looked amazing.  Clicking from website to website I bookmarked a few that were remarkable.  I printed these out as I good look at them throughout the days and they also contained measurements.  What is important to me is that a work bag is large enough for my Macbook with enough room left over to also hold magazines, papers, two smartphones.  You get the idea; I carry a lot of essentials on a daily basis.  When I travel, all of it goes with me.  A great carry-on bag needs the same amount of room as I use for work, but also a bit more so I can easily transport skincare and makeup products.  Today after much research I hit ‘buy’ and purchased a large satchel from a line called PLIA Designs.

Designer Handbags

As many of you are aware, PLIA Designs creates a range of handbags that fit effortlessly into the modern fashionable’s wardrobe.  The bag I ordered is their new satchel and I absolutely love the design and silhouette.  It has top handles, but it also contains a detachable shoulder strap.  Rushing through airports, I know from experience, I often need a hands free bag.  I’m super excited for my new handbag to arrive.  I own and carry several designer handbags from PLIA Designs’ and I couldn’t be happier with them.  They fit seamlessly into my life and I’m sure my new work bag will as well.

My Love for Beautiful Designer Handbags

In my last memoir I made no secret how much I love clothing and fashion in general.  Fashion has played a huge part in my life over the years.  Both of my parents are fashion designers and as an actor, I’m surrounded by clothing all of the time.  And I’m not going to lie, I’m friends with many famous designers and stylists who are constantly gifting me free clothing.  Over the past year I built a massive walk-in closet.  I have the sort of wardrobe that is envied by many.  I’m not bragging, but simply stating a fact.  I love fashion and I think it should be celebrated.  Fashion is a huge business and a big chunk of the world’s economy.  Many people think it’s silly to be interested in fashion and to me that mentality is crazy.  Fashion is big business and people should take an interest in it.  I see how how hard my parents work and at times it pays off and sometimes it doesn’t.  Sometimes they create amazing clothes and accessories that do not receive any sort of praise from the fashion press.  The fashion world is very competitive.  Designers are all vying for only a few spots in monthly fashion glossies.

Along with fashion, I’m also very partial to designer handbags.  When I’m on location shooting a film, I always make sure to figure out the local shopping.  I love nothing more than visiting local boutiques and even shopping malls.  I’ve found many fashion gems in far flung locales while shooting.  Shopping in a local area also gives you a different perspective.  You get more of an idea about local taste and what people like.  Sometimes a certain style will be popular in one city, but in another city something completely different is trending.  I’ve recently discovered that Salzburg has some amazing shops.  In between shooting, I’ve been stopping into quant little boutiques and discovering some major fashion talent.  I have a soft spot for European designers as do many.  They express their views on style and even the world through their designs and it’s so refreshing to see.  European designers also have an amazing flare with accessories.  Some of their understated sensibilities translate well into handbags and leather goods.  Do you frequent any European cities where you absolutely love to shop?  I’d like to know which ones provide amazing fashion that is different from the rest of the world.

I have one smallish walk-in closet that is just dedicated to all of my designer handbags.  Many of these beautiful bags were purchased in different cities all over the globe.  Some of my favorites are custom made exclusively for me.  It’s easy to fall in love with handbags.  They are fun to carry and usually pair well with many different outfits.  Next week my handbag closet will be photographed for VOGUE.  I look forward to presenting a few of my favorite luxurious designer handbags to photographers.  I don’t think my love for beautiful handbags will ever wane.  They are truly gems!

Happy iPhone Cases

I love the word happy.  It just makes you smile sometimes for no reason at all.  I love the song Happy.  It makes you want to get up and dance.  They are many things in live that make us all happy.  Some of them are tangible and some are not.  Happy could be a smile from a stranger.  Happy could be a nice phone call from a relative.  For many women, happy is shopping.  For dogs, happy is a cuddle and kiss from their owner.  Many children find their happy in the summer when school is out.  What is your happy?  I love discovering what the term ‘happy’ is for  different people.

Happy for me is being with friends and doing things we love.  One thing we all love doing together is going shopping.  Every few months we meet up and pick a new venue with shops and stores we haven’t visited before.  Sometimes that’s hard because we usually drive to our destinations and make them day trips.  We have now hit all of the towns and cities nearby several times so we are well versed in all of the shopping.  We recently set out to visit a brand new shopping complex.  It’s called Harbor Island Shops and it’s built out in the middle of nowhere.

It was a beautiful drive to Harbor Island Shops.  It was a relaxing drive on a long stretch of road with corn fields framing each side.  It only took us an hour and a half to get there.  The parking was super easy.  After we parked our car, we spotted a tea shop and decided to get a drink before we embarked on some serious shopping.  I ordered a peach iced tea and it was delicious.  Two others ordered hot tea.  We also shared a few cookies between us.  Outside the tea shop was a map of the shopping complex.  Since we basically all have the same taste, we knew we’d visit all of the handbag and accessories stores.

PLIA Designs was the first boutique we visited.  WOW is all I can say.  What a beautiful store with stunning products.  They specialize in accessories for women.  PLIA Designs crafts amazing designer handbags.  I couldn’t get over all of the beautiful leather goods.  One of my friends mentioned she’d seen the brand in a VOGUE magazine article.  In the middle of the boutique were new PLIA Designs iPhone cases.  They were the cutest iPhone cases I’d ever laid eyes on.  Seeing these made me happy!  So very happy.  Right then in there I fell in love with PLIA Designs designer iPhone cases.
