Nerd alert! We both have iPads. Cori Sue actually uses hers for serious things like work and school, while Becca’s iPad gets more play from her cat these days (for real, those mouse apps will amuse your cat for hours).
No matter how you’re using it, you must accessorize your new toy. Luckily, there are practicable and adorable cases for you to swathe your new baby in, but also make it easy to pull out and read on the metro, coffee shop, or wherever you take it.
Cori Sue’s Picks
You could opt for a classic gold metallic leather case Graphic Image. Ipad Cover, $130, Cambria Cove.
So this is pretty cool: BOOK for iPad is a hand-made hard cover book jacket, with a 100% wool felt sleeve tailored to the iPad on the inside. Each one is hand-crafted to order, so you can personalize it with your own “title” on the spine. $99 to $119, depending on customization.
I’m a sucker for Kate Spade anything. Currently, my iPhone is sheathed in the most adorable polka-dot hard plastic case. So it only makes sense to complete the case collection for my Apple devices in Miss Spade, right? Her iPad case is just as lovely, covered in funny little classified ads. $85.
I’m also loving the Michael Kors line of iPad cases. There is this fabulous python case, but also a gold one and a black one available. They’re super functional with the zipper, and the price point won’t make you feel guilty about throwing it in your bag. $130.
And now I’m going to imagine I have pots of money. For the love of Gwo, I lust for this lux alligator iPad sleeve. It’s got a secure snap button and the front is embossed with the Burberry Prorsum logo. Drool. $4,195.
