Katy Perry Is Releasing Fruit-Scented Jelly Sandals and They’re Already Selling Out
So many of our favorite ‘90s style essentials are back in a big way, because what’s old is somehow new again. From Clueless-inspired style to small sunglasses reminiscent of The Matrix, we’re digging back into our closets for our digs from the decades past. But Katy Perry just upped the ante in a serious way, because she’s bringing back jellies, and this time, they’re scented.

Your favorite trendy summertime shoe has come back around thanks to the “Chained to the Rhythm” singer’s latest designs from her namesake Katy Perry Collection. Perry loves a bold, bright shoe (remember those clown shoes!?), but this time, she’s tugging at the heartstrings of ’90s cool kids everywhere with “The Geli” line, a collection of nine colorful kicks inspired by fruits like watermelon, peach, grape, and strawberry.
Perfect for “tropical adventures and beachside cocktails,” these jelly sandals are perfect for your summer fun, but with a truly 2018 twist. Each style is fruit-scented to match the decorative fruits on the shoe’s toes, reminding us of our scented Mr. Sketch markers from elementary school.
Though the sandals are completely adorable, we definitely have a couple of questions regarding the scent, namely, how long does it last? How strong does it smell? And what happens when our feet get a bit sweaty out in the hot summer sun?
According to online reviews, it seems the scented sandals are, well, pretty sweet, though some mention that the smell feature does wear off in time… as expected. But for a cool $49, it’s not the worst way to bring back your childhood memories for a season.
If you love the look of the jellies but don’t want to smell like a basket of fruit, Perry has designed equally cute non-scented options, inspired by frozen treats like a snow cone, an ice cream sundae, and yes, an orange popsicle, all for $59.

Pocket doors are so delightful in and of themselves. They appear when you need them, get tucked away when you don't, and make it easy to define rooms while keeping an open floor plan. Add to the pocket door a joyful patterned wallpaper surprise, and you will be sent right into fits of visual jubilation! Or something ;) Today we're sharing two simple and impactful pocket door makeovers that zhuzh up your space in a jiffy.
Anjelika Temple here, co-founder of Brit + Co and proud owner of several pocket doors! When I moved into my first real grown-up house a couple years ago, I knew I wanted to incorporate wallpaper so reached out to our friends at Chasing Paper to see how we might collaborate. It felt like a total lightbulb moment when I realized I could create a surprise pop of pattern on a couple sets of pocket doors.
Not only is it a whimsical way to bring color into a space, but the doors double as picture-perfect backdrops for all your SFH (selfies from home, obvs).
A few pro tips about install:
- Removable wallpaper is miraculously forgiving! You can take it on and off multiple times without it losing integrity (or mucking up your surface).
- I ordered this adhesive wallpaper installation kit with a squeegee and xacto knife and it worked super well. I also recommend a sharp pair of scissors for cutting longer lines.
- This is a two-person job! Get a friend, put on a playlist, and get ready to bond.
- Wild, organic patterns like Tally are great because it's challenging to spot any imperfections in pattern alignment; keep pattern choice in mind if you've got a lot of corners to match up. More geometric patterns and larger shapes leave less room for error (but are awesome in their own right!).
BATHROOM POCKET DOORS
In our primary bathroom, we chose the wallpaper pattern Tally, designed by Kelly Ventura, in White and Navy. In our space, the navy reads as a soft black, which is perfect for the space. It's easy to combine an ever-rotating collection of linens with the Tally pattern.
I love how the white trim becomes the perfect frame around this pocket door piece of art.
My favorite moment in this space is the fact that you actually get a third pop of pattern thanks to our serendipitously placed mirror!
And yes, this one works pretty darn well as a backdrop too ;)
LIVING ROOM DOUBLE DOORS
This set of doors is definitely a focal point of our home. It separates our living room from our primary bedroom which opens onto our backyard. The doors are pretty much always open, but when they're closed we wanted to evoke a fun, nature-inspired vibe. With that in mind, we selected the Lines and Moons pattern by Thimblepress in Green and Brown.
Earth mama vibes up in here! I love how the shapes and colors echo the ferns you see through the windows and the acorn wood details throughout the house.
Love this pattern moment, and xacto-ing out the door handle is def on the oddly satisfying DIY list.
For a pattern lover like me, I love that now I have this instant photo backdrop!
