Anyone who knows me knows I’m a total Rifle Paper Co. fangirl—I can’t get enough of Anna Bond’s whimsical, vintage-inspired designs, and it just so happens that her bricks-and-mortar storefront is located in the town where I grew up (and where my parents still live—it’s about two hours north of Sarasota). So of course, when Anna announced Rifle would be producing iPhone cases, I knew I would be buying one.
It just so happened that the Winter Park shop began selling the iPhone cases last Thursday—they’ll be for sale online this week—so my lovely mother went and picked one up; it was waiting for me when I arrived at my parents’ house on Friday night. And I have to say, in addition to the design being totally charming, the quality is also really great (let’s be honest, I would have bought one even if it wasn’t, but sturdiness is a nice surprise. Take notes, Kate Spade). The one my mom got me has a hard outer shell, but there’s also a rubber inlay that wraps around the phone to offer it even more protection if it’s dropped, which—again, let’s be honest—mine will be. We’ll see how the whole thing wears over time, but for now consider me sufficiently impressed—and happy that my phone, which has been naked since I upgraded it in December, has a pretty case again.
Update: The iPhone cases are now available on Rifle’s website right here!
