Snap On Case for iPhone 5
This case is beautiful! I have it in Ribbons and love it to pieces.
Now, onto the real business:
a) Yes, this case is more for cosmetic purposes than for protection. I acknowledged that when I choose it over the heavy-duty Otterbox case that the Verizon sales rep was strongly advising me to pick. That being said: when you get this case, know that it might protect your phone for some things, but if you really want some solid protection that goes above and beyond, go for the Otterbox.
b) HOWEVER, this case seems to be much nicer (not as flimsy) as the iPhone 4 cases. It is decently sturdy (I've accidentally dropped my phone onto the counter a time or two and it's been just fine), but it is also very glossy and a little bit flexible, which I like (it's not impossible to take off and on).
c) A few things I want to point out:
- the case makes the iPhone (for me, at least) very easy to grip in my hand, which is nice and means I'm (probably) less likely to drop it.
- the case does not cover the buttons, which I found very annoying about the Otterbox (the case wouldn't smoosh down on the buttons)
- it's a very slim design, and I can still fit the iPhone in my pocket very easily, which is nice. When I tried out the Otterbox, it kind of skidded and was a bit bulky.
- it's BEAUTIFUL. Need I say more?
All in all: Yes, I would definitely recommend this to anyone. Thanks for another lovely product, Vera!

Not compatible with the 5c
I just got my first iPhone, and was super excited to be able to get a case that matched my bag and other accessories. Sadly, I did not read closely enough to realize this case is not compatible with the iPhone 5c. I had to send it back and order something that is not Vera. :(

I love this case, I got the ribbons design this past Christmas along with my iPhone 5 and it is still in great shape and since it was the ribbons design, it donated to breast cancer. Overall, this case is cute and I've even dropped my phone before and it protected it. I would recommend buying this to anyone! :)
