The Quarantine Splurge That Will Bring Your Zodiac Sign Peace of Mind
After the last six months, we could all use a little (OK, big) pick-me-up. And you know what? We all deserve it. If you’re in the mood to splurge on a gift in the name of self-care, just look to the stars for guidance. Here, the quarantine splurge that makes your zodiac sign tick—from cozy home investments to a pair of snakeskin boots you’ll cherish now and forever.
1. AQUARIUS (JANUARY 20 – FEBRUARY 18): Paris Texas Snake-Print Leather Boot
As the humanitarian of the bunch (Oprah counts herself as an Aquarian BTW), you’re all about peace, love and social justice, which is so admirable during these times of crisis. You won’t make a purchase that doesn’t give back in some way, but it also must cater to your eccentric side. Enter these snake-print knee-high boots from Paris Texas that, when bought from Olivela, provide 30 essential supplies for a family in need, through the Save the Children charity. As if you needed another excuse to start planning for fall outfits…
2. PISCES (FEBRUARY 19 – MARCH 20): Serena & Lily Capistrano Outdoor Hanging Chair & Stand
Now more than ever, it’s super important for dreamy, emotional Pisces to create breezy, soothing vibes at home. What could be more perfect than a Zen-like hanging chair that brings a beachy feel to the backyard? This one is especially appealing, thanks to its natural elements and airy design. Just open a good book and get to daydreaming and lounging the afternoon away.
3. ARIES (MARCH 21 - APRIL 19): The Mirror
In a quarantine world where everyone is getting Pelotons, you’re onto newer, shinier things, like the Mirror. As the technical first sign of the zodiac, you have an innate desire to be first in just about anything—and that includes being an early adopter of the buzziest products, like this at-home workout device that takes up way less space than a treadmill or stationary bike. Bonus: It looks like an ordinary floor mirror until you turn it on and it becomes a virtual personal trainer. So. Cool.
4. TAURUS (APRIL 20 – MAY 20): Mansur Gavriel Cammello Large Leather Tote
Tauri are rooted earth signs that are drawn to natural, unpretentious items. Think practical and unfussy, yet aesthetically pleasing, like a giant leather tote with clean lines and a minimalistic design. This one is strong yet understated and in it for the long haul, just like you.
5. GEMINI (MAY 21 – JUNE 20): Anthropologie Oscarine Lucite Bar Cart
Geminis have a penchant for entertaining—they can play host but simultaneously have just as much fun as a guest at their own party (even if it’s over Zoom). This heirloom-like bar cart combines the best of two worlds (just like your personality) with both brass and Lucite for a modern yet vintage vibe.
6. CANCER (JUNE 21 – JULY 22): Burrow Arch Nomad Sofa Sectional
If any sign is thriving in social isolation, it’s a Cancer. Like your namesake hermit crab, you’re all about nesting and creating a warm and welcoming space to curl up in. And because you’re spending so much blissful time at home right now, consider a big purchase, like a comfy couch, that will take your quarantine hygge to the next level.
7. LEO (JULY 23 – AUGUST 22): AlepelNude Leopard Peep-Toe Mule
For someone whose sign could literally be translated to queen of the jungle, only a purchase that’s as feisty as your personality will do. These block-heel slides add a heavy dose of Leo flair, while still being a practical WFH choice (unlike your closet full of look-at-me stilettos). Wear them around the house and you’ll feel like your normal attention-grabbing self in no time.
8. VIRGO (AUGUST 23 – SEPTEMBER 22): Brooklinen Luxe Move In Bundle
Virgos are perfectionists who appreciate close attention to detail. Even during quarantine, your bed is meticulously made every morning to five-star-hotel-level crispness. You’ve been known to whip out the iron for that wrinkle-free finish, so it’s time to Invest in a luxe new bedding bundle that matches your impeccable standards.
9. LIBRA (SEPTEMBER 23 – OCTOBER 21): Lizzie Fortunato Treasure Hunt Earrings
Like the scale that your sign symbolizes, you’re all about stability in every aspect of life, including your style. A pair of dangly statement earrings not only balances out your favorite casual tie-dye Zoom tee, but they also help create facial symmetry, which is super pleasing to your love of equilibrium.
10. SCORPIO (OCTOBER 22 – NOVEMBER 21): Saint Laurent 53mm Cat Eye Sunglasses
The most mysterious of all the signs, Scorpios are the cool girls of the zodiac. But that doesn’t mean you lack depth and warmth. A pair of angular cat-eye shades play into your mystery while also giving off an approachable, effortless vibe. When worn with a face mask, people will barely be able to tell who you are so you can flit through town in incognito mode.
11. SAGITTARIUS (NOVEMBER 22 - DECEMBER 21): Paravel Weekender
You’re the free spirit of the zodiac, and although the world had other plans for your big 2020 Bali trip, you’re not letting that slow you down from a summer full of (socially distanced) road trips to places off the beaten path. You also appreciate the finer things in life, so investing in a functional, chic weekender to bring along on all your adventures is a smart move.
12. CAPRICORN (DECEMBER 22 – JANUARY 19): Michele Deco Madison Diamond Dial Watch Head & Bracelet
Capricorns are pretty much the bosses of the universe. You want everyone to know you mean business, so showing up to your Zoom meeting exactly on time is your M.O. A classic watch appeals to your no-nonsense personality. But as the most determined sign in the zodiac, you aren’t afraid to try new things, which makes this specific watch, with interchangeable straps, especially appealing.
