Self-Inking Personalized Stamp

These Kaleido Trays not only look really cool, but also save space. She can use them separately or stack them together for a colorful focal point in any room.
It's time for her to ditch her ill-fitting dorm sheets and indulge in a quality option like this Serena + Lily Kite Sheet Set. Since other layers of bedding mainly cover sheets, look for options with pretty colors and interesting patterns that feel a bit more special than a plain white set.
With it being Friday, we've naturally got the weekend on our brains, and today we're looking to Jessica Biel on how to walk our pups in style. The actress ditched the usual dog-walking gear (we're looking at you, sweats) and instead was chic and sporty in an AllSaints striped sweatshirt ($110) over a AllSaints striped tank dress ($68). For comfort, she added a pair of Nike Dunk Sky Hi sneakers, and for extra edge, a black leather jacket. Although skirts and sneakers aren't the most obvious pairing, that's precisely what we love so much about Jessica's latest outfit — she tried the unexpected and it worked. So follow her lead by shopping similar pieces below.

Take a look and tell us which of these wins your vote!
As Sarah Jessica Parker exited her NYC home, we couldn't help but notice her striking printed jacket. It was definitely the pièce de résistance of an otherwise stylish-but-basic ensemble. In a perfect example of how the sum can be greater than its parts, her add-ons — a simple blue Michael Stars tee, gray skinny jeans (which she cuffed widely at the bottom), white cutout pumps, and a black crossbody bag — played up the jacket beautifully. The SJP-approved style lesson here: next time you wear your favorite skinny jeans and tee, don't shy from a bold statement jacket. Shop similar pieces below to get the star's latest look.
It seems fitting that Drew Barrymore, the girl next door who's also Hollywood royalty, would live in a stately, traditional home. Now that her country-chic Montecito mansion is up for sale, we can't help but dream about owning it. According to Trulia, this 6,000-square-foot beach ranch boasts everything from lush gardens to a guest apartment. It's already proven fit for entertaining; Drew herself got married here last year. While a cool $7.5 million isn't in the price range of most of us, it's doesn't hurt to admire — or steal the style with similar pieces found throughout this California pad. Click through to see how it's done.
Thanks to Serena & Lily, there's a new reason to visit the Hamptons this Summer. The coveted lifestyle brand is launching their first brick and mortar store this weekend! The new shop will be stocked with Serena & Lily's usual home offerings, and then some.

One of the first things we spotted when Beyoncé shared snaps of her and Jay-Z's recent anniversary trip to Cuba was her smashing Tabitha Simmons striped espadrille sneakers ($395). Against the backdrop of her black blazer and leather pants, they stood out in the best way. Even if you're not jet-setting to exotic locales like Bey, you can still get her look locally. Work her exact Simmons espadrilles into your Summer wardrobe with everything from dresses to denim cutoffs. We also love the idea of sporting them with other bold patterns for a mixed-prints styling. Ready to treat your feet? Score Beyoncé's shoes, then be sure to shop other celebrity must-have items while you're at it.
Sienna Miller took to the streets of NYC sporting cool Paper Denim & Cloth distressed boyfriend jeans ($218) — but she didn't style them in the traditional slouchy fashion we've grown accustomed to. The actress opted to go the opposite direction with feminine pieces from head to toe by choosing a white lace blouse and a pair of blue suede pumps. She then tied a printed scarf around her waist for a unique alternative to a belt and added round retro-style Karen Walker tortoiseshell sunglasses ($280). So the next time you reach for your boyfriend jeans, channel Sienna. In fact, start now by shopping our picks of similar pieces below.
