Ora Kiely Optic Stem Wallet Case

Ora Keily Optic Stem Wallet Case *

Recently, I was given this pretty Ora Kiely case to review for my iPhone 5S. I've not always been a fan of the wallet cases for the iPhone, and always thought that they were just for the people who love practicality, where as I'm an all for fashion girl, and would prefer to be pulling out an iPhone covered in decoden pieces 90% of the time! But when I was given a choice of three cases, I chose the Ora Kiely wallet case over the clip on cases, because I wanted to try something new, I really love the simple and cute print and colours... and I kinda like the practicality! I also thought about my phone's safety too, since I am forever dropping my phone. Luckily, since I upgraded I haven't dropped my phone more times than I count on my fingers!

It's pretty simple, and holds the phone in really nicely, and all buttons and the speakers are accessible and free. The wallet's exterior is made of almost like an oil cloth material, so any near spills are easily avoided and cleaned off. It's also got a easy carry wrist strap, and three card slots which would be so useful for maybe a night out or when you don't have a lot of space in your bag for both your phone and purse, or you just don't want to carry a bag and just need your phone and a couple of cards!

As for everyday use, I've had this case a few days now, and I've had to get used to how I hold the case for texting, tweeting, and calls. Now I'm used to it, it's not a problem but it was a little annoying at first. The only thing I'm still not used to is that the popper faces the back, and I'm opening it from the back to the front, which I think should be the opposite way round... If you know what I mean. That being said, it is the only thing I'm not too keen on with this case, and other wise I love it! I'll probably use this case for those times I pop into London and need my phone to hand and safe, or for nights out, or when I don't have space for my purse in my bag. I've got this case just in time for McBusted on Saturday which me and Jess are super excited about! I'll have my phone to hand for a lots pictures, and on my person at all times for safe keeping!
What are your thoughts on wallet cases?

  1. I have an iPhone 5 to, and never settle with a case, but this looks perfect!
    I ALWAYS keep my bank card tucked behind my phone case so this easy access just looks simply perfect!
    The design and colour is equally as stunning.

    1. I never settle with a case either but this one's kept my phone safe the best. It's a little impractical but I got used to it now.
      This is perfect for nights out. Means no purse losing and the wrist straps comes in more than handy! x
