GIFT OF THE WEEK

graphic design: Eunice Chun post: Kristin Ess

Clearly we take a whole lot of photos around this place and we often test looks out by shooting them on an iPhone, just to see how they look before we go pro. Our next TBD “Gift of the Week” is thisĀ amazing cover! It’s both cute AND functional, which we love. I got one last week while we were in Toronto and I couldn’t wait to share it! Some of you may or may not realize that the “volume up” button on an iPhone can be used to snap a photo when you’re using the camera app. The the shutter button on this camera cover sits right on top of the “volume up” button and that’s how it works. There’s also a button over the “volume down” button, so you can do business as usual while sporting this cover. If you drop your gadget a lot, worry not– it comes with a place for a camera strap. Let’s be real– it’s not like this phone cover actually makes the photo better, it just makes you feel a little more chic while shooting!

Below, we’ve illustrated how the pattern of a snail braid, but everyone’s hair (and head shape/size) is going to be different, so the customizing the style is up to you. We would love to see you gorgeous gals (and guys?) give this hairstyle your best shot. Here’s the challenge: (more…)
