When in doubt, look to the stars. In our Shop Your Sign series we round up fated Etsy finds for every astrological sign. If there’s anyone who can bring life to a room, it’s a Leo. These astrological luminaries are famous (often literally) for their charisma, charm, and warmth—and for making any place they go just a little bit more fabulous. For the next month, everyone will be celebrating your arrival in the cosmos—talk about a party!—so take a peek at the picks below, from elegant accessories to delicious desserts, and start adding some astrologically aligned inspo to your shopping list.

A bold bangle

Your birthday month is the time to treat yourself, and for luxury-loving Leo that means glam all the way. A chic brass bangle from San Francisco jewelry designer and metalworker Leah Staley elevates dressy and casual looks alike, and the playful shape is an unexpected way to rep both your fire sign and your inner lioness.

A shaggy statement-maker

Your home wouldn’t be complete without a piece of showstopping decor that reflects your flair for drama (admit it). Originally from Barcelona, textile artist Judit Just of Jujujust currently operates out of Asheville, North Carolina, where she weaves wool, cotton, and silk into spectacular, room-defining wall hangings.

A treat fit for a queen

Big-hearted Leos are less interested in having their cake and eating it too than in having their cake and inviting everyone over to share it. Indulge your generous spirit—and some cravings while you’re at it—with a dozen handpainted macarons from Sweets Illustrated. Designed to look like your favorite fruits, the macarons come in single-flavor sets with eight yummy options, including cotton candy and chocolate ganache.

A shutterbug staple

Between your social butterfly ways and your aversion to staying still, chances are you’ve already had a jam-packed summer…and you’re just warming up. With an easy-to-operate vintage Olympus Trip 35 camera from Tripman UK, you’ll preserve all your sunny-day escapades for memory lane strolls down the road. Plus, thanks to this camera’s bold color, you'll be able to find it in a snap even at the bottom of your beach bag.
