A Monet is a slim-fitting wallet, kickstand and grip for your smartphone. It accomplishes three tasks in one stylish and easy-to-use accessory. With dimensions just slightly larger than that of a credit card, the Monet is constructed of a leather (or leather-like) material that includes a metal-riveted sliding plastic grip that doubles as the kickstand. Each Monet arrives in a nice-looking box, and each is adhesive-backed for easy application to nearly any smartphone. Black tends to be my color, so my "Black Night" Monet is placed upon the black Otterbox on my iPhone while my wife's "Colored Mixed Letters" Monet fit perfectly atop her Speck clear case.
When you're traveling light, the Monet allows for an ID and credit card to be held tightly within. You could also use the dual slots for cash or business cards, but the name of the game here is keeping the profile slim. The kickstand works well while using your phone to watch videos, while the grip is great for stabilizing selfies or... imagine this... actually making a phone call!
For a lot of people, upping the selfie game might be a big draw here. In fact, when the recently-viral "Selfie Kid" Ryan McKenna was reunited with Justin Timberlake for another go (Ryan became the Selfie Kid after scoring his famous Halftime Show selfie with JT at the Super Bowl) thanks to Ellen DeGeneres, he was rockin' a Monet. Since that time, the Monet has been a regular fixture for McKenna's growing selfie-taking endeavors, in addition to popping-up as a must-have accessory for other Instagrammers like Scott Disick, DarthLux, Jena Frumes, Lindsey Pelas, Stephanie Ann Shepherd and others.
The Monet is available in a wide-array of colors and patterns (30 as of this writing) directly through the Monet Brand website. If you're an Amazon shopper, a smaller selection is available now through Amazon (an associate of this site).
