I’ll admit it: Buying a $385 iPhone case made from real fur is deeply unnecessary. But I’m not one to shy away from fashionable adornments — especially ones swathed in pink-dyed blue fox. So when I showed my mom this one from Wild and Wooly, I thought she would hoot and holler, “Maria, you’re insane!” To my complete surprise, she said the exact opposite…in fact, she insisted she buy it for me for Christmas because, “You’re impossible to shop for. Plus, you’re my most favorite child so order the damn thang.” Okay, okay, I made up that last part. Sue me.
The first night I took it out, everyone was asking me who made it and asking if they could take a picture. Within an hour of me going outside, someone offered me money to get it for himself. #Winning
So yeah, smartphones are expensive enough, but a handful of people (**me, cough, cough**) are willing to drop even more cash — sometimes in the thousands of dollars — for fashion-forward-fur coverings for their devices.
My motto in life? If you really like it and it makes you happy, then it’s worth it.
