Addiction: iPad Accesories

I love my iPad. I love my iPad more because work gave it to me and pay all the bills (cheers guys), but if I ever leave my current role and have to give it back then I’ll have no hesitation in buying my own. Truth.

Part of the fun of tech toys is the accessories that go with it. I know I wasn’t the only one spending $30 a pop on clip-on covers for my Nokia 5110 (you had one of those bricks too, yes?) Right now my Blackberry lives in a totally luxe Kate Spade case, which is a bit of a step up from the old Nokia 3200 where I used to cut out and make my own covers. Seriously…it was a clear plastic phone where you could put your own pictures inside the case. Oh, how phones have evolved.

But I digress. Naturally I pimp my iPad, because if I have to carry it everywhere (and I do…work) then it needs to be a fashion accessory. Some of my favourites are:

Marc by Marc Jacobs Stardust logo pink ipad snap case

Marc by Marc Jacobs Stardust Snap Case in Fuschia – $48 from Shopbop. It looks like it is sold out – bummer – but there are loads of other MbyMJ ipad accessories. I love this cover – it has withstood some serious beatings.

Silver glitter ipad case Typo

Silver glitter iPad case – $19.95 from Typo. It gets glitter e.v.e.r.y.w.h.e.r.e. but it’s pretty pimp. Totes bling.

Boxwave black leather messenger pouch ipad envelope

Elite Leather Messenger Pouch – $24.95 from Boxwave. This was a gift from a friend, and it’s so damn useful. The same awesome friend also bought me the next size up for my Macbook Air, and I use the bigger one as a clutch purse because it fits my ipad AND wallet/keys/comb/lipgloss/phone.

Do you have an iPad? Have you found somewhere for cool accessories that aren’t the same old boring cases you see everywhere?

    I just bought a Marc Jacobs snap case and tablet case for my iPad! You’re a bad influence 😉

    glad i’m not the only member of the “gadget pimping club”. i love etsy’s skunkwraps, because they’re cheap in case you change your iPod/phone/pad case 100456282 times a month. xo

    Oh wow that glittery cover is AMAZING. I don’t have an iPad (yet) but I’m constantly switching out my iPhone cover!
