Monika Strigel Rose Gold Faux Glitter iPhone 6 Case.

You've probably gathered from my last post that I'm kinda sorta obsessed with anything rose gold right now... to the point where even my new iPhone 6 has it on it.

My old iPhone 5 got a little well worn whilst I was away. If you know me personally, you'll know that the term 'butter fingers' doesn't begin to cover how clumsy I can be, and it seems the dropping of my iPhone approximately 15639876 times a day, combined with lack of phone case meant that, after 6 years of owning an iPhone, I managed to smash the screen of one for the first time.

Thankfully, I was due an upgrade upon my return home, and determined not to let my new phone meet the same fate as my then-current one, I purchased an iPhone 6 case from the other side of the world.

I'd long admired the Monika Strigel range on Casetify, and as I knew I wanted a white and gold iPhone along with the fact I had a discount code, I quickly plumped for the Rose Gold Faux Glitter Case from her range, as I thought it looked really chic and pretty, and chose the Classic Snap option.

Shipping was free, and the case arrived within 2 weeks of me ordering it... pretty good going considering it was shipped from the USA; it was wrapped in sturdy packaging to prevent any damage occurring whilst the parcel was in transit.

The case itself is gorgeous - whilst the rose gold 'glitter' is not actual glitter, but printed onto the case, it still somehow manages to look sparkly, like the real thing. It easily clipped onto my phone, and has been made with the camera and various side buttons in mind, so there's nothing obstructing any of the phone's functions. I had to take the case off my phone last week to install a screen protector (I have this one and it's brilliant) - it was a bit of a nightmare to get off, I will admit,
 - but in all honesty that's probably a good thing, as it means your phone is snug, safe and protected from bumps, drops and scratches (all of which are inevitable, in my case).

I've gathered from a quick browse through the collection that Monika Strigel's cases work best with the white and gold iPhone 6, so unfortunately if you've already got the black and grey one, these cases probably won't look quite as good on your phone. However, if you were getting jealous of the whispers of a rose gold iPhone 6S, you could save yourself a bob or two by simply buying a rose gold-toned case like this one... let's face it, the 6S is hardly going to knock the socks off  the 6, is it?

If you're looking for a something different from the usual Kate Spade or Cath Kidston offerings for the iPhone, whilst still being feminine and functional, look no further.

The Monika Strigel Rose Gold Faux Glitter iPhone 6 Case is priced at £25.60/$39.95, and available at Casetify. To save $10 on your case, enter the code QM2I9W at the checkout.


  1. pretty case and they do indeed have amazing cases, I just dont think they are worth it :p


    1. We will have to agree to disagree, as I think they're worth every penny :-) x

  2. Hello!
    Thank you for this nice review of my design! I love to design pretty cases for Fashionistas, but your point of getting some designs for the Silver and Black iPHones is a good advice! I will think about it and maybe add some to my Casetify shop! Have a lovely day!

    1. Hi Monika - I love that you took the time to read this, thank you so much! I'm sure your designs would look gorgeous on the black iPhone if they were in the right colours... perhaps a pewter or dull silver colour rather than the rose gold for the white iPhone? I'll leave the designing up to you though, haha. I personally love the white iPhone and the fact your cases look so good on that colour of phone, but I know my friends with the black/silver iPhone are a little jealous they can't buy your cases :-) xx
