Catharsis for the Conspicuous Consumer: iPhone Cases

I've alluded to it before, but I am a pretty prolific shopper.  I have an interest in all sorts of consumer goods, and I love a good trend.  Michael has told me to replace "trendy" with "passing fad" to help me control my consumerism.  My response:  "Life is too short not to jump on bandwagons."  So, yeah, that's not going to work, but I'm considering that perhaps a round-up every now and then of things I want but don't need might be cathartic.  

Recently, I've had my eye on a whole bevy of striking iPhone cases - none of which I need because I already have a beautiful case.  Anyhow, here are my favorites:

  1. love 7, 8, 9... I need a new case SO bad! Mine's white and has gotten so dirty!

  2. I love 1 and 7. Do you think posting this will help with the "want" of a new case? Maybe if you just let people know, it will be somehow satisfying? Anyways, thanks for pointing me to the Society6 website...goodNESS! So many choices!

    1. Well, part of the beauty of getting new stuff is showing it off to all your friends and having them say, "oooh, how cute! where'd you get that?" This is sort of the same thing, right? Of course, it might be detrimental to my friends. :)

  3. Hello! Thanks for featuring my case. Society6 is running free shipping for my store for family and friends via this link: http://society6.com/AmySia?promo=ac5caa

    1. Hey, that's awesome! Thanks for sharing. You make some beautiful art!
