Lucy Watson is snap happy with her Skinnydip London iPhone case
Former Made in Chelsea star, Lucy Watson snaps up a storm with her skinnydip london iPhone case over the weekend
It looks as if Lucy Watson, is more loved up than ever with her boyfriend JP, as she supported him during his Tough Mudder Challenge endurance course in Henley-On-Thames on Saturday.
Lucy was dressed casually, yet cool for the occasion, as she smiled with her pregnant bestie Alexandra ‘Binky’ Felstead.
Pairing some funky flatform trainers with her look, Lucy clad her lithe pins in a pair of skinny denims, and kept warm in a navy knit jumper.
We think Lucy looks totally relaxed and happy as she supported her man with Binky, who was also there to cheer on her baby’s father Josh ‘JP’ Patterson.
Binky wore a form-fitting black top that clung to her blossoming baby bump putting it prominently on display, and a large pair of sunglasses.
Lucy grabbed boyfriend James for a quick selfie with her skinnydip london iPhone case covering her phone. Lucy is a huge fan of skinny dip london and has been a massive fan of the brand since it was founded. She regularly is seen with their famous iPhone cases, bags and accessories. And we can understand why. Skinnydip came around due to a gap in the market for a quirky, fun and purse friendly accessories brand…. and since its inception it has gone from strength to strength …. so much so they are even opening up a store in NYC – WOW!
We actually had the privilege of visiting the skinnydip store in London a few weeks ago (pics below) as well as the new Ragged Priest store (it was like Christmas!)
Anyway Lucys exact phone case is below if you want to purchase this 🙂
Festival Season is HERE
Are you ready?
Its that time of year again – Festival Season
Summer music festivals have for a long time been a breeding ground for eccentric fashion trends, which become the nations obsessions.
From the tie-dye fads from Glasto, right through to the present day obsession with wildfox cutoff denims, glitter roots, face jewels and OTT flowery crown and glory headbands! These quirky looks are the youth culture’s stamp on the festival phenomenon. And here’s the latest trend coming your way – taking festival fashion one step further:
glitter for your derrière.
Yep. Glitter butt. It’s a thing, and you can expect to see it all over Instagram in the next few months….. Deal with it.
Cosmo has reported that the trend was inspired by the feeling of sitting on the beach, standing up, and finding your backside covered in sand. But instead of sand, now it’s glitter. YAY – you can never really have enough glitter, right?!
Of course, applying glitter to your own bum is a little tricky, so if you fancy trying the trend it’s probably best to leave it to a professional. Or you can hire one of your friends and get them to rub hair gel (used as glue) on your derriere, and then ask them to paint on the glitter.
A totally normal friendship ritual, I’m sure they’ll agree.
Make sure you wear shorts that are short enough to display your glittery behind to the world – look at our fun ragged priest ones and be warned that you will probably never, ever remove all traces of glitter from the area between your cheeks. LOL 🙂
Enjoy your new life as a glitter-bummed person.
Leave sparkly traces on ever toilet seat you ever grace.
This is who you are now.
Will you be trying out this fad?

Skinnydip London is your go to Accessories Brand
Skinnydip London have single handedly reinvented womens accessories.
“Fun, youthful and a little cheeky” – James Gold (Skinnydip Founder)
Skinnydip London burst onto the fashion scene in 2011, and has grown into a worldwide lust after brand which has been snapped up by fashionistas like Miley Cyrus and Kylie Jenner! With Quirky iPhone case, shaped like prawn cocktail crisps, covered in glitter or printed with unicorns, as well as clutch bags with slogans like Liquid Sarcasm is what catapulted Skinnydip London to the very forefront of the accessory market.
We at Spoiled Brat have been a proud stockist (and even bigger fan) since 2011. We were captivated by the quirky, girly designs – and wondered “where have you been all our life” as soon as we cast eyes on the brand!
The brand’s secret to success?
Always being innovative, keeping tabs on emerging trends and re-working them with some skinnydip magic!
After finishing his degree in law, the then 25-year-old James Gold opted to change paths and pursue a career in the fashion industry. A decision that is a family tradition, as Gold and his brother, Skinnydip co-founder Richard, are already the 3rd generation of the family to be working in fashion.
So along with Lewis Blitz, they are the founding trio, who are represented by Skinnydip’s logo; a triangle.
They run the company together to this day, in a fun and joyful manner.
James has answered some questions, allowing us to get to know the brand a little better!
What led you to launch Skinnydip London?
“Following Apple’s release of the original iPhone, my brother Richard Gold, best friend Lewis Blitz and I couldn’t understand why the only cases available on the market were either black, white or grey. We believed that a fashion conscious female would want a case for her phone that appealed to her sense of style and before us, nobody was offering this. We saw a real gap in the market in making tech fashionable and selling to high street retailers. This saw the beginning of Skinnydip London in 2011 as a way of offering something different to accessorise your iPhone“
What is your relationship with the other co-founders, Richard Gold and Lewis Blitz? And what inspired you to found Skinnydip together?
“I always look forward to going in on Monday morning because I work with my two closest friends. As partners not only do we enjoy working with each other but we also all bring something different to the table – Lewis is the most creative and a brilliant problem solver and Richard heads up all our retail concessions. My love for making sales meant that it was only natural that I look after this side along with exploring new business ventures“
How did the name come about?
“The idea was to create a lifestyle brand that stood for being fun, different and a little cheeky, all of which I think the name Skinnydip reflects. Also, being very young when we first set up and not wanting to take business so seriously, we also liked how the name was a little risqué and went against what a traditional name for a company would be“
Humour and sarcasm seem to be a big part of the brand and its designs. How important is humour to you?
“It reflects who our team is as individuals which is then reflected back into the brand. Skinnydip is a fun and humorous brand and on the corporate side, our office is a fun and humorous place so each compliments one another. For me personally, I love working in an informal, fun atmosphere where everyone can express their opinion and be creative. I feel this atmosphere is then manifested in not only the products but the tone and voice of the brand across all channels“
Skinnydip’s designs are very Instagram friendly and you even use emoji motifs as a pattern on your products. Was that done on purpose?
“With our target customer hugely active on Instagram, it was key for us to use this platform to relate and engage with her. Therefore, some of our designs reflect the online social world, and we place huge importance on our social media presence“
You collaborate with a lot of young British designers. Why did you decide to do that?
“It was very important for Skinnydip to have a meaningful brand ethos which is that it’s a proud supporter of young British talent. We chose this as our ethos having graduated from university at a time when opportunities for young people were so scarce. We also feel that an ethos is meaningless unless you actively do something about it, which is why we are always looking at not only young designers, but artists, photographers, DJ’s and musicians to partner up with and work together“
How has the company grown since its launch?
“It’s been a really exciting journey. Originally we were wholesaling our ranges into high street fashion retailers, but since launching in Topshop in 2013, we have become predominately retail-based with over 100 concessions selling in over 60 countries alongside our website. We have also opened stores in Fouberts Place, just off Carnaby Street and Neal Street in Seven Dials, with plans for international expansion in 2016. Alongside our concessions with Topshop, we also sell into other leading global retailers.
We’ve grown from the three of us, who founded Skinnydip and used to do everything, to a fantastic team of over 50 people with offices in the UK, US and China. Having started with iPhone cases and headphones we are ever expanding and now producing over 350 styles per season across a wide range of fashion accessories including bags, purses, backpacks and travel accessories“
