These Driftwood Amulets with Lapis ($84) look as though they should have some sort of magical power. We'd be tempted to try dancing ourselves up a rainstorm while wearing them, or hypnotizing the Starbucks barista into giving us a Venti for the price of a Short.
It seems like the only way we can get our nail polish to stay intact these days is to splurge on gels. But who wants to drag back to the salon every two weeks to get them scoured off and redone? We're on the hunt for cheaper, time-saving alternatives, which is why we'll be giving this Orly Won't Chip Protective Polymer Shield ($8) a try. The resin-based formula helps protect, bind, and seal color, hopefully buying us a bit more time between manis.
It may very well be okay that we can't afford to buy ourselves a pair of Missoni Flat Sandals ($395). It's not like we have a boat we can wear them on, or an expensive seaside luncheon lined up. We'll just have to sigh and stare at the navy and white chevron pattern, pretty pink dots, and darling metal medallion while we mentally piece together a whole Missoni outfit around them!
We love that House of Rym gives you the option to mix-and-match their 6-pack of saucers ($136, preorder)! You can opt for an eclectic mix of six of their eight designs, two each of your top three favorites, or a complete set of the same pattern. The little plates pair with patterned cups, but we think they're also the perfect size for serving cupcakes and petit fours!
Mint is having a major fashion moment right now, and if you're bold enough to go beyond a mint-hued scarf or flats, this Collective Concepts Texture Pleated Skirt ($69) is the perfect way to bring that cool blue-green into your wardrobe. The fabric is a textured floral brocade, giving extra dimension to the classic box-pleat shape. Wear it with kicky little heels and a chambray blouse for a cute, but not trying-too-hard, date outfit.

We love a good collab around here, so we were, naturally, pretty pumped when we got a glimpse of the NARS Pierre Hardy Blush Palette ($41), inspired by Hardy's 2013 shoe collection. The pattern echoes the signature Hardy packaging and NARS blush is always perfection.
Want the coverage of a skirted bathing suit without the old lady associations? Give this Calvin Klein Crossover Swim Dress ($124) a whirl. The retro look keeps it solidly in the chic category, while the length hides any awkward spots.
Ah, summer: less responsibility... sunny days... recreational activities... For the hippie, every day is summer, which is why we like the Acid Head Beach Towel ($30).
They say that in the end, you're your own best friend. So why not buy yourself the ultimate friendship bracelet? This Crystal Bonfire Bracelet ($36) goes far beyond those knotted thread chains we used to whip up during sixth grade study hall. And since it's fastened with a sturdy clasp instead of merely tied on, you won't have to worry about it falling off at summer camp.
When we tried diptyque Rich Butter for the Body ($90), we knew right away that we'd found a winner. This deliciously rich cream is perfect for anyone with dry or sensitive skin...or really anyone with skin, because that is how good it is.
Before there was Google Earth, there were topographical maps, those awesome, lumpy pieces of classic schoolroom decor. Recapture their old-school charm with these Circular Topography Studs ($207).
While the super-stylish Alite x Free People Tent ($168) says it fits two people, we should warn you: two people is a tight fit. You better make sure the second person is someone you really like! Ahh, the romance of camping: insect repellent as eau de parfum, granola bars as fine dining, and a tiny (albeit adorable!) tent as a boudoir!
Who could say no to a couple of extra tiers? They make pyramids higher, cakes more fabulous, and also work a bit of magic on this Maxi Dress In Floral Print ($102).
In all honesty, we're kind of hoping that if we order the Billy Wolf Dog Rain Jacket ($59), it'll come already fastened onto that darling Australian Shepherd pup. (Just look at those brown and blue eyes!) Of course, we know it won't, so maybe it's time to finally head to the shelter and pick out a deserving doggie to love (and dress up in snazzy rain gear)!
We're all suckers for a creamy shower gel, which is why we really love David Yurman Luxurious Bath & Shower Gel ($50). Sure, Yurman is better-known for his jewelry than for his bath products, but once you smell the the rich notes of exotic woods, patchouli, peony, and water lily, you'll wonder why he didn't just make bubble bath from the beginning.
