    This is a cute pattern. It is mostly clear but with stripes. The color scheme has that "Kate Spade" touch -- you know what I mean: it has flair without being gauche. The color of your phone will impact the effect; mine is rose gold, and is perfect with the stripes. I think the color scheme would be great with most phone colors; I can picture it being cute. Also, I thought it was just another pretty face, but it is very functional. The material is not the cheap, plastic kind; it's actually ruberry-ish. Thus, it seems to be more shock absorbent when it falls (I can be clumsy); it's not super slippery so you can grip it, and it makes it easy to handle your phone. Although not impeccable, it doesn't have glaring scratches from the few times I have dropped my phone.

    Good case, maybe not best for serious protection

    I love the look of this case, The little embedded rhinestones are a nice touch as well. Fits my iPhone 8 perfectly and the rhinestone placement on it didn't get in the way of attaching a pop-socket to the back. The only reason I gave four stars is because, while this case is nice, I don't feel that if I drop my phone it will adequately protect it on the front or bottom (charge port area) of the phone if it were to land on it; however, I have yet to drop my phone, so if I do and it does in fact protect those areas if it lands on them, I will definitely give this a five star rating.

    Normally I'm not too concerned with designer labels, except when it comes to Kate Spade. Maybe it's because I'm an interior designer, but I really love KS designs. I had a Kate case for my old iPhone, so when I upgraded to iPhone 7 I needed a new one due to the old one covering up the camera lens. I bought this one off the shelf, and while I do like the design very much, I don't particularly care for the overall feel of the material. My old case was very shiny and slick. This one is shiny but it actually feels "sticky." It's kind of a combination plastic/rubber feel. I guess it's supposed to help keep your phone from skating off the edge of a slick surface, but I'm just not a fan. Hoping to replace it with another (Kate, of course!) slick case in the near future.

    My Poor Phone

    Bought a new phone and needed a case since I smashed the screen on my old phone. I figured this time around, I should maybe get a case for it, so I bought this. I definitely picked design over functionality. Not even a week after I bought my phone and had a case on it for the first time in 6 years, it slipped right out of my hands and smashed the screen again. The case is super cute, but also really slippery! And since it doesn't have the screen protected at all, I made a poor choice. I ended up returning this and getting a life proof case while my phone was being repaired

    I love this case! I've dropped my phone multiple times and not a single scratch on my phone. It's a good thin case if your looking for something slim but well made. It's not cheap plastic, feels good, too. Plus it's Kate Spade! The case itself has also held up well against accidental drops and what not. Only downside I've noticed is that the white strips on the back have began to discolor a tiny bit. But I've had it for awhile now and it's only just begun to be notciable by me. My original case turned discolored within 2 weeks.

    I LOVE this Kate Spade phone cover. I have a rose gold iPhone. This cover is partially clear, so it lets the beautiful color shine through. The bling in the center of each flower adds just the right amount of shine to the case without being overwhelming. (As a gemologist, I LOVE bling!) Plus, it seems to be pretty durable. I've dropped the phone a few times and there is no damage to the case - or the phone.

    Pretty but not effective

    This case is very pretty and does not scratch easy, like other clear cases. Unfortunately it does not protect the phone very well. After one month, my brand new phone has cracked on the edge which caused a crack across the screen. This product fails to protect the phone the bottom (horizontal) edge. The case has open space (no plastic) left for the speakers and the lighting port of the phone and makes it vulnerable to cracked screens.

    Bought to replace my 15 year old G.E. microwave oven. It still worked but we remodeled the kitchen and wanted stainless steel. This unit has a better interior (enameled blue) that looks cool and should be easier to clean. Also as a side note, found basically the same model at the `orange box' store for more money and they were going to charge me around $59. to ship to the store or my house. No free shipping of any kind.

    Unique style good protection

    This stylish design provides good protection, peace of mind. My daughter has several cases she uses, but, this one is her favorite. It not to heavy or bulky and so far it's been worth every penny. It's been dropped, sat on, and handled often, yet this case still looks and works like new. If you have a teenager a good case and screen protection is a must. Good luck getting one there in hi demand. Nice product Kate Spade...

    Not Durable

    I purchased this case two days ago with my fiance for her brand new iphone. The phone has been in her hand or in her pocket for the majority of that time and has not been dropped, slid, or abused at all during that time period. The enamel and colored pattern have already begun to rub and wear off of the case. She was really excited about the design on this case but plans on returning it tomorrow because it cannot withstand even the lightest use so far.

    While looking at the item I noticed that the packaging listed various models of comparability in which I asked 3 different associates of it was compatible with my sound bar which was in store and I showed them. They confidently all told me that it worked. When I got home it would not connect so I had to live chat with Samsung in which I was told that was not compatible at all. I'm sure the product is awesome however I expected to be making an educated purchase.

    Short on Coverage

    This case looks really nice on the pink phone. The only problem is that it is lacking protection at the bottom of the phone. There is just one giant opening where the charging cable plugs in. Other cases have a piece of plastic there with cut outs for the speakers and charging port. If the phone gets dropped there, it can be easily damaged in this case. I am only using it short term until I can find a case that is pretty and has protection.

    The case goes on easily, and the graphics so far have not worn off. Normally with these clear cases you will see a discoloration in the clear portions after a short period of use, but this one seems to be holding its clarity very well. I also enjoy that fact that the buttons are not affected by this case at all. Good design and a great price.

    I've always loved Kate Spade products, but this is actually the first purchase I've made from the company. I love it! This case is super cute, doesn't feel bulky, and is clear enough that you can see your phone through it, while accenting the color of your phone also instead of covering it up. I have the black iPhone 7 and the gold and silver dots look great with! Great quality product as well. Definitely recommend!

    I wanted a new case to match my rose gold iPhone 7. I didn't want something plain, but I also didn't want to pay $80 for a case that could possibly break. This was luckily in the middle of that range I had and it has worked so perfectly so far! It's super thin so it's not bulky in my hands, but it also provides protection when needed. I have dropped my phone a few times on tile/carpet and I've had no issues!

    Perfect Mate for iPhone 8

    this case matches the iPhone 8's new gold, which has pink tones (the new gold seems to be a blend of the gold and the rose gold from past years) The Kate Spade case fits very well. some other cases were difficult to snap on. The case has a nice feel to it and is made of better materials than many "hard cases; " also has just enough of a rim to protect the face of the phone.

    Even though this case hasn't been used yet, it is a Christmas gift for my wife.I'm sure she is going to love it. She has a few other Kate Spade cases and they hold up great. They protect well. I wouldn't throw them across the room, but they will withstand a fall off the table or a drop from your shoulder while talking.

    I got this case and was doubtful at first but I ended up loving it. It is nice and durability is great. Dropped my phone a few time but didn’t get a single scratch or dent. It feels like it’s made off silicon. The case hugs around your phone which protects it very well. Love the small embellishment on the back to give that girlie flower look to it.
