Gone Retro: Case-Mate Cinda B Cases Roundabout Black Review

Though I am far from a product of the sixties, I have always considered myself to have just a dash of hippie, flower power pizzazz in my soul (and not just because I was heavily-influenced by The Babysitter’s Club’s Dawn Schafer during my formative years). I will forever swoon at the sight of Twiggy’s spider lashes; think of Edie Sedgwick when I spot leopard print coats; and covet my very own pair of go-go boots. Thus, I couldn’t help but to request the retro-esque Roundabout Black Case, created by Cinda B Cases, when Case-Mate offered me the chance to choose a new case for my iPhone.

I was given three options for this case (Barely There, Tough, or ID / Credit Card). I have mainly had experience with Silicone-based cases; but since I loved the feel and quality of my Case-Mate Glam, I opted for the Roundabout Black in Barely There, and was very happy with the decision, as it is both strong and sturdy, yet very light, so it doesn’t add bulk or extra weight to my already overfull handbag.

What immediately caught my eye in regards to this case was, of course, the print. The colors are black, white, pink, and varying shades of gray (from light concrete to charcoal); and are circular in shape, so that they overlap one another, creating a very psychedelic look that is eye-catching and playful, yet subtle enough to remain sophisticated and elegant. Not to mention that it makes for the perfect counterpart to bubblegum pink or winter white manis!

POSITIVES:
♥ Comes in two (2) different colors – Roundabout Black or Roundabout Red. ♥
♥ Available for a variety of phone models (iPhone 4 / 4S; iPhone 3G / 3GS; BlackBerry Curve 8520, BlackBerry Bold 9700; BlackBerry Bold 9900; iPod Touch 4G; and Samsung Galaxy S). ♥
♥ Allows access to all ports and functions when in use. ♥
♥ Impact resistant. ♥
♥ Lightweight. ♥
♥ Sleek shell finish which makes case smooth to the touch. ♥

FASHIONISTA VERDICT:
The perfect way to add a subtle hint of the swinging sixties to your look du jour. Twiggy, Andy Warhol, Edie Sedgwick, and the rest of the stylish heavy-hitters of the sixties would approve!

What look is your iPhone currently rocking?


Fashionably yours!

I love your free spirit which traces influences to the 60s. what a "hip" period. speaking of which, you would love some sections of brooklyn these days which are the embodiment of "hipster cool". (cool case :)

My iPhone is still rocking its plaid case, but I'm really thinking about investing in a Case-Mate case this upcoming February.

This looks like a fun case. 60s patterns and styles make such a statement in today's fashion.

I like the little bit of pink!

Samantha Elisabeth said...

Oh my gosh I love it! And I agree I have a dash of the sixties in me! Too bad I don't have an IPhone, or else I would scoop this up!

Alexa said...

Oh I love the dots...so modern and delightfully 60s.

That case is super cute! I don't have an iphone, so my phone is not rocking a case at all. I used to keep it in a clear plastic case. but now it's nearly 4 years old and if it dies, it lived a long life!

Sara said...

That is cute & I love the colors!

Grace said...

That's a really cute case! I have one that's great for protection, but I don't really like the color. You are inspiring me to get a new one!

Rachel M said...

That case is SO cute!

bridechic said...

It does have that Andy Wharhol Op Art chic! I'm an actual product of the 1960s and remember the impact these kinds of accessories had on the fashion, art and ad world . . .
