Flittering Flirt: Case-Mate Adina (Butterfly) iPhone Case Review

“Butterflies are self-propelled flowers.”
R.H. Heinlein


At the age of seven I found a caterpillar, brought her home, and fed her daily; watching as she went through a metamorphosis beginning with the creation of her chrysalis (cocoon), and, ultimately, her emergence as a full-fledged butterfly 1 ½ weeks later, before releasing her. Since then, I have been virtually obsessed with butterflies – including butterfly kisses. So when Case-Mate so graciously offered me the chance to select a new case for my iPhone, I went straight for the colorful piece that reminded me of the beauty I had set free so many years earlier – the Adina (Butterfly) Case.

One thing I find so appealing and elegant about butterflies is that they possess a very feminine, flirtatious vibe to them, as they are very unharnessed and free, flitting from one location to the next with brief stop-offs to charm admirers before continuing on their journey. Case-Mate has so perfectly captured that nature and ambiance of them in the Adina (Butterfly) case; showing multiple butterflies mid-flight, and giving them a 3D effect via the raised silicone pieces.

The Case-Mate Adina (Butterfly) has a very transitional feel to it. Though the colors work beautifully for the spring and summer months, they will seamlessly transition into the fall season due to the fact that they are extremely rich, vibrant, jewel-based shades (jade, magenta, plum, and royal blue) that will look stunning off-set against autumn’s earthy tones. A versatility that I, for one, am incapable of resisting.

POSITIVES:
♥ Eye-catching hues and a decadent design that make a lasting impression year-round. ♥
♥ Form fitting, flexible silicone shell that keeps your beloved iPhone protected (even covering corners); whilst allowing access to all ports and functions. ♥
♥ Impact resistant. ♥
♥ Raised silicone pieces that create an easier hold; AND lend a pretty 3D effect. ♥

FASHIONISTA VERDICT:
An accessory that makes your style soar through winter, spring, summer, and fall! Bonus? Pair it with a jewel-toned sweater in the fall, or an all-black look in the winter to really make the colors come alive!

Fashionably yours!
