Soft Frame Case for iPhone 5
I had the hard slide case in Ribbons and I liked it, but it was kind of difficult to figure out the slide feature and it was slippery. So I was in the Vera Bradley store the other day and saw this case in the Olivia Pink colors. It's a bit pricey, hence the 4 stars instead of 5, but it's cute, very easy to get on and off the phone and doesn't feel like the phone will go flying accidentally. I recently needed to have my phone ear receiver repaired and I don't know if it's a result of the few times that my phone slipped out of my hand with the old case. I don't worry about that as much with this one. Like I said, it's a bit pricey and I wish they had more of a variety of colors, but it's a decent case. Some reviewers are saying it doesn't hang over on the top, but I think if it did, it might interfere with the front facing camera so I didn't find that to be a big deal. I like the case.

Bad if you have long hair
The case is pretty and would probably protect the phone, but I switched back to my old case because as I took the phone away from my ear, it gripped my shoulder-length, fine hair and pulled it. Ouch! Carefully pulling the phone away from my hair after a call got old fast.

I love the print but...
I love the case but it always falls off of my phone because the top doesn't have enough overhang on the top! Kind of disappointing, I wish that they had the hybrid shell case in heather. First item I've ever gotten that I didn't care fore.

I got this case yesterday in the Heather pattern. I love everything about it and have absolutely no complaints. I was thrilled when I saw that rubber cases had been made and I went out and got it as soon as I could. It completely lived up to my expectations. I love that despite being rubber, it's still very sleek and small. It's grippy enough to keep hold of but not too grippy that it's difficult to get in and out of your purse or pocket. Great access to all the buttons/ controls. I'd highly recommend this to anybody, you WILL NOT be disappointed! :)

My new favorite!
I really like how this design covers all of my phone plus I like the material because I think it will act as a better buffer. The only things keeping me from giving it 5 stars: more main print patterns needed...I want people to know it is Vera Bradley and the lining print doesn't always give that away and secondly, the piece that goes under the home button feels thin and loose. I am afraid it is going to rip.

I purchased this case in Heather for my iphone 5. I liked the poka-dots and it is a fun summer case for my iPhone. I keep this case in my smartphone wristlet. I like this case better than the other vera cases because it comes around my phones edges and i feel like it gives it a little more protection than the snap-on case. I also like it better than the regular frame case because if the cases texture.
