It’s been a whereas since I final posted a phone case evaluation, and I’m sorry. However I’m thrilled to report that I’ve found an unimaginable phone case hack. You may bear in mind my final evaluation, which concerned cherry pom-poms. Right this moment’s evaluation is about all of the issues I can do with that one case as a result of it of its back-mounted metallic loop.

The case initially got here with these cherries on the again that have been connected with a key ring. The key ring finally broke, although, after which the cherries fell off, so I principally was caught with a case that had an unsightly, cheap-looking metallic loop on it.

However then, I moved flats and unearthed a keychain I used to be given with a nail polish buy. Yeah, random. It options a brilliant pink pom-pom with a pink tassel and a bedazzled butterfly. I attempted hooking it onto the phone, and positive sufficient, it crammed the cherry pom-pom void in my coronary heart. After a month or so in my bag, although, the pink began to flip black with filth. That wasn’t my favourite look!

Now, having simply moved, I used to be in my native greenback retailer and noticed a unusual keychain made out of a bike chain. I feel it may be designed for attaching to a pockets after which hanging out of your belt loop? I’d attempt that out in some unspecified time in the future. I purchased it solely for my phone, and it appears to be like extraordinarily industrial. I like it. I put on the loop round my wrist or carry it like a purse. Both method, it feels extra like a trend assertion. I solely want the metallic loop on the again of the case was silver so it matched.

I really like this case as a result of I can change it up with out absolutely committing to a entire new design. A keychain makes my case really feel new, and this time round, I’m absolutely leaning into the {hardware} pattern. Cherries felt good at one time, when spring was simply occurring and summer time was on its method. Now, it’s been over 90 levels for what appears like years, and all I can take into consideration is fall. I wanted this bike chain in my life.

I don’t know after I’ll change this case out. It’s undoubtedly falling aside a little bit; the perimeters are peeling up and even the “leather-based” is peeling, too. If I do find yourself with a new case, I’ll publish about it, however for now, know that my instances and I are in a good place. We’re blissful.
