Hot Buckles is "an online treasure trove of the hottest fashion accessories for women, trendy college crowd apparel and custom items from tablet cases to flip flops and of course, hot buckles & belts too."
Hot Buckles is a family-founded business located in Hollywood, Fl. Recently, their business has successfully expanded beyond the scope of Fl and onto the Internet, to serve customers all over the world! They have a very low return rate, affordable prices, great customer service, and speedy shipping time!
Hot Buckles has a large hodgepodge variety of accessories; if I tried to talk about all of them, we would be here all night. Below I have highlighted some of their products and styles and some of my favorite items that I found while browsing their website.
Major Product Categories:
- Belt Buckles
- Electronic Covers
- Flip Flops
- Minime 3D Dolls
I love this women's Thin Grey Snake Print Rhinestone Leather Belt. Hot Buckles has every kind of belt you could ever desire -- from exotic animal print designs, to biker belts, to licensed logos, to wide fashion belts. I like that there is something for all ages and all styles; they have belts for men, women, and children. Hot Buckles also has the belt buckles to match. They have the coolest buckle styles and fashions -- from glow in the dark to Swarovski crystal to LED designs.
I also love the variety of cute flip-flops! It's hard to find a nice print for wearing on a summer day to the beach or for going on walks.
Hot Buckles was kind enough to allow me to pick out an item or set of items from their website to review. I thought the Starry Night Electronic Bundle was a set that was both very cute and something I could really utilize. I received the Starry Night Dual iPhone 5 Case, the Starry Night Kindle Case, and the Starry Night iPad Mini Case.
The Starry Night Dual iPhone 5 Case has the following specifications:
- Sprint, Verizon or AT&T iPhone 5 Case
- Material: Plastic, Metal
- Size: 5" x 2.5"
- Weight: 0.3 oz
- Case Color: Black or White
- The Starry night" Painting By Vincent van Gogh
- Retails for $19.95
I was definitely in need of an iPhone case when Hot Buckles contacted me; I received my iPhone 5 as a gift for Christmas and I have been without a case since then. Admittedly, I have dropped it a few times at work and around the house and I have some denting and scratches around the edges. I have seen phones that are FAR more damaged, but I wanted to get a case to protect my phone from future injury. This case is the PERFECT mixture of protection and fashion. It just so happened that Starry Night is one of my personal favorite paintings. I think the design goes really nicely with the phone, and I've already received several compliments. You can tell that the case is not made cheaply -- some cases that I have seen are flimsy or are not manufactured correctly, because you can't get to the buttons. I can easily press all of the buttons on my phone and plug it in to charge. The case is sturdy, and I think that it would withstand me dropping it (though lets hope that doesn't happen). I had a little trouble getting it on at first, but that's because I was afraid of jamming my phone in and breaking it. The rubber around the edges of the case actually made a perfect, close fit once I got it in.
The Starry Night Kindle Case has the following specifications:
- Weight: 1.7 oz
- Size: 7.5"inches x 4.75" inches
- Made in USA
- Case / Cover Color: Back or White
- Material: Hard Plastic
- Made to Fit The Amazon Kindle Fire
- "The Starry night" Painting By Vincent van Gogh
- Retails for $22.95
As it states above, this case was made to fit the Kindle Fire, which is lucky for me! I received my Kindle Fire two years ago, and, like my phone, I never purchased a case for it. Luckily, I generally use my Kindle Fire at night when I am in bed and feel like reading a good book before I nod off. I do take it on trips occasionally though, and it has A LOT of surface area to scratch or ding up. I am always worried about dropping it. I was equally as satisfied with the Hot Buckles Kindle case as I was with the iPhone case. I love having both of my favorite pieces of technology matching with one of my favorite paintings. I will probably take my Kindle out more often now that it is protected.
The Starry Night iPad Mini Case has the following specifications:
- Weight: 2.4
- Size: 8.0" x 5.5"
- Material: Aluminum, Plastic
