Raise your hand if you’re clumsy with your cell phone. Raise your other hand if you refuse to put a phone case on because well, they’re just not nice enough. I don’t know about you, but I have both of my hands up. Before I came across The Dairy, I recall having to make frequent trips to Best Buy so the Geek Squad can fix my cracked phone. You would think I’ll learn and eventually put a case on it, but that day just never came around. I remember I had a Kate Spade phone case for a while but whenever I dropped my phone, the 2-part case snapped off and that broke too. After that, I just couldn’t find a case which looked nice and worked well (in no particular order, of course).
Cue: The Dairy
I’m not quite sure how I discovered The Dairy on Instagram, but I instantly fell in love with their feed and all credits go to one of my favourite photographers, Me Oh My Girl who creates these beautiful images for them. The incredible flatlays and photography intrigued me to keep looking at the Instagram feed and soon enough, I had ordered my very first phone case. Which one? The most feminine and Parisian one designed by Kerrie Hess, of course. I’m going to be honest and say I didn’t know who she was until I saw her work on The Dairy phone cases. Turns out that she’s an incredible fashion illustrator who has worked with luxury fashion houses like Maison Laduree, Louis Vuitton, Printemps Paris, Lancome Paris and Cartier. It didn’t take long for me to see her talent and fall in love with her work. I was now a fan of The Dairy, Me Oh My Girl and Kerrie Hess. That’s just one artist which I happen to be partial to, but there are so many incredible artists The Dairy works with. The choices are truly endless and you’re bound to find yourself a favourite. Did you know? The Dairy partners with an artist or designer every month to bring us exceptional phone case designs. That alone, impresses me and sets The Dairy apart from many of the phone case companies which have popped up recently.
From the Kerrie Hess collection, I chose the Rouge a Levres phone case. It has a girl sitting at a cafe in Paris with the Eiffel Tower behind her, shown ever so lightly. It screamed “chic” and took me right back to our honeymoon in Paris; I knew I couldn’t have made a better choice. It was a good 3 weeks until I received it in the mail because it comes all the way from Australia, but so worth the wait (another reason I love The Dairy, because if you know me, then you know I love Australia-anything). Ever since then, I haven’t visited the Geek Squad and my husband no longer freaks out when I drop my phone. His reaction is literally, “Oh you have that case on right? Your phone will be fine” Yay for one less silly argument! #marriedlife. He actually uses the black marble phone case photographed here and absolutely loves it. This goes to show that fashionable phone cases are for men, too.
Phone cases from The Dairy are not only durable and fashionable, they truly define affordable luxury. I hope they stick around for a really long time because I don’t plan on getting my phone cases from anywhere else. I’ve actually got my eye on this phone case next.
