An orange alligator/croc skin pattern iPhone case in a shop window near work has been calling me. Sounds bling, but trust me, it's a nice shade of orange, and I wear mostly neutrals, so it's good to have a shot of color in a fun accessory. Anyway, I assumed, as one does, that it was decent quality plastic embossed to look like leather. Turns out, it's real, and it costs the princely sum of 490 €.
I'm not sure what is more pathetic, that some people would actually spend that much money on a case for a phone (global financial crisis? what's that?), or that this is the topic for my first blog post in 2 months.
