Tech Cases

Juicy Couture iPod Shuffle CaseThere are plenty of iPod and iPod Mini Cases out there. Expensive ones, cheap ones, chic ones, ugly ones, you know the drill. But what about the cute little iPod shuffle (which I personally love to use to work out because I swear it is barely there)? There was the infamous Hermes Lipstick/Gum case, which I believe would and could hold an iPod shuffle, but there would not be easy access to the controls. So as much as many of you may despise Juicy Couture, try to hear me out. This little Juicy Couture MP3 Case/iPod Shuffle Case is a simple and cute little outfit. There are two colors to choose from: socialite (light pink) leather with pewter hardware (my fav) or black/golden. The chain strap shows off decorative chains with logo charms that hang from the left side, yet they do not overpower it. The last perk to this little case is the price. I am sure many of you could spare the $38 via Neiman Marcus.

How to be a totally trend setting man: buy a man bag and carry and iPod. I’m too late for the invention. Tanner Krolle and oki-ni have collaborated for the first time to produce a special limited edition leather bag with a Mini i-pod holder. We have seen purses out there that hold an iPod, but not a man bag! For sure not a man bag. I dig this because it shows me that other people out there think about the men who do care about being trendy and unique.

This highly versatile and functional bag made from perforated soft Italian leather, is off set with the celebrated Tanner Krolle contrast stitch detailing. The bag; large enough for a full gym kit, has a practical waterproof compartment inside, with a discrete magnetic pocket hidden behind the embossed Tanner Krolle logo at the front. The outside zips are lockable and come complete with Tanner Krolle branded padlocks and embossed oki-ni and Tanner Krolle leather zip pulls. The mini i-pod attachment slides on to the shoulder strap for easy access but is also detachable so the holder can be used independently. The screen and navigation dial can be viewed through the holder window with the mini i-pod still secure in its case. The bag is fully lined with an exclusive print created for especially for oki-ni. Available in three colours: black, dark brown and cream these bags are extremely limited. Dimensions of boxing bag: length 32cm x width 49cm x depth 20cm, please note that the mini i-pod pictured is not supplied.

The bag just rocks. No other way around it. I even know that many of the man bags I have written about might be too trendy for many of the males out there, but this is perfect. The bag comes in black, dark brown, and cream and will cost about $ 1,269 via oki-ni.

The UK Guardian rages “Louis Vuitton of laptop carriers” and that with good reason. There is absolutely no excuse for the fashion conscious working women of the 21st century to settle for mediocre, monotone and boring apparel, especially when it comes down to laptop carriers. London based Knomo stuns with a range of contemporary computer luggage with classy shapes and innovative features. Seldomly have I seen more striking and outstanding bags that promise to both keep your computing portables safe during transit and most importantly, complement you with a touch of sophistication.

Knomo CholetEach Knomo bag is packed with brilliantly designed and engineered features. The Knomo Tracker is a unique owner code that helps identify its owner in case of misplacement, allowing bag and owner to be reunited. All bags are also constructed of high quality materials, including double layers of high-density foam aiding shock absorption in case of bumps or knocks. Most appealing in my opinion is the quilted pouch that each bag comes with. It enables you to quickly detach it from the outer shell to take your laptop for a quick spin to the cafe. In addition, each bag has its own protective bag for cables, power supplies and other miscellaneous items.

First candidate for today’s exposition is the executive laptop bag named Cholet. The carrier features a genuine leather outside and smooth strengthened nylon on the gusset. A generously long shoulder strap ensures comfortable fit, while its insides reveal easily accessible phone and wallet pockets, along with additional inner pockets for PDA, iPod and stationery. An extra pocket keeps daily documents in place. Of course, the bag comes, as mentioned before, with the Knomo tracker, the quilted pouch and bundle bag for cables and the like. The bag comes in four different shades (Bloody Mary being the one pictured above) and fits most 14 inch laptops. The ultra chic carrier goes for £150, which equates to about $280.

Knomo QuettaThe second bag I’d like to show is the daily commuter bag Quetta. This bag carries a slightly different design and targets the daily office application in general. The Quetta is slighty larger in depth by about an inch. Its handles are shorter and softly padded for comfy toting. The larger unisex sibling to the Cholet fits 14-15 inch laptops and comes in Bloody Mary Red, James Brown and Limo Black. The Quetta finds new owners upon payment of £175 (about $325).

UK customers profit from the company’s free UK shipping, and if you order a bag until 13 hundred sharp, you will get your Knomo delivered by the next business day! Totally PB-approved! The US American clientele luckily can order their Knomo bags as well, with delivery within usually 5 business days. Check out Knomo’s fine assortment at or order directly through their online store.

I’ve included two pictures below to give you an idea of how big the Cholet and Quetta run – click (more…) to view them. (more…)

Sony PSP Case

The good folks over at Gizmodo may no agree with me, but I find the cherry blossomed ‘Sakura’ PSP case very appealing. I really dig the pink! Ok, maybe it’s just the hentai-comic-lovin’, Hello Kitty-adoring asian girl in me that giggles over this poach like a slot-eyed toon from the land of the rising sun, afterall. Gasp. Either way, the product page can be found here. If my Japanese was any better, I’d tell you something about it. But it’s not. In the meantime, I will just praise baby buddah and hope that this gadget will hit the US market sometime soon.

Tumi Laptop Carrier

Tumi have been providing their quality travel gear to to affluent, globe-trotting frequent travelers for over thirty years. In recent past, they’ve expanded their collection by shneezy female gear, including the sleek, elegant Laptop Carrier. The light $125 bag comes in the four depicted colors and black, and impresses with tons of clever features. Time to dump the backpack as laptop gear of choice.

The Bag Lady has a nice roundup on some very chic laptop bags for the ladies. Although it’s a UK-based site, it’s nice to see what’s out there – and most of the stores do ship to the US as well.

Juicy’s very own forged brand ‘J’ dangles lustfully off its side, while a clear plastic screen shields the display from nasty scratches. The case comes only in the pictured cherry-red color and goes for $58 at Nordstrom.

In 2004, the iPod had become the ubiquitous gadget to have. You went photo, your mom went pink mini and even your dog does not go on a walk without his shuffle wrapped around his neck. So how do you set yourself apart from the rest of the trendy pack? Pick a cover that will stress your individual style. The Purse Blog hence compiled a totally stylicious roundup of six ostentatious iPod cases for ya. (more…)

Poire Phone PouchThese cute lil’ pouchy things are Japan’s slick contribution to the worldwide boom to keep your tech gear in style! The nippon import comes in a vast variety of colors and themes (the elephant one being my absolute fave) and costs a mere $10 at the MimmoBaby store.

Grab your fashionable Razor cell, stuff it in the pouch, hook it to your belt or purse (no, it’s not supposed to be worn on your pinky), and off you go. Why carry all your misc. belongings in style when you can treat your cell special, too. Afterall, we all have the cell-o-philiac in us.
