We’re so excited to be hosting another Trunk Show this Saturday at Principessa…and this time it’s all jewelry!! Just in time for the holidays, we’ll be showcasing a dizzying array of stunning and exclusive pieces from designers like Jacquie Aiche, Sid Vintage, Again, and Vosbig….and it’s all for ONE DAY ONLY! So stop by Principessa between 12pm and 5pm this Saturday and sip a glass of bubbly while you browse these beautiful gems!! xx
By now, most people know that Principessa offers a wide variety of styles and prices to fit most moods and budgets. If you’re looking to invest in the timeless cool of a lambskin leather moto jacket, we’ve got one for you. And if you want to rock that look but not break the bank, we’ve got one for you too! Here’s just a sneak peek at how you can buy into the same look at very different prices…all in one store! Happy shopping!
Littledoe hat on the cover of Vogue España…available soon at Principessa xo
Today was my favorite kind of day at Princi…when so much new shipment comes in it feels like Christmas, when good friends (little & big) come by to visit, when our favorite designers personally drop off new goods (thanks Temma & Lola!!), and when the whole day just feels like one big party. It was definitely one of those days and the energy in the store was electric! Just lovin’ on our Princi family & friends today…xox
It’s been a hotbed of activity here at Princi this week…and it’s only Wednesday! We kicked the week off with a visit from the lovely Niki of Luxury Jones fame (along with her little pup Carlos)…she dropped off more boots (yay!!) and a bevy of new styles she’d been working on just for us! Then we all fell madly in love with Bosley, Cari’s adorable mini poodle. Then there were all the shipments! Off-the-charts sexy Sophia Loren-esque body-hugging dresses from Ticci Tonetto, Jen’s Pirate Booty bags (I’d like one of each please), some insane Mikal Winn one-of-kind cuffs, intoxicating new scents from Ebba’s new Boho Collection, and the sold-out Otis & Maclain aztec print skirt is now back in stock! So basically we’re just bracing ourselves for a crazy (fun) weekend…you’ve got to love summer in Venice :)
Mara Hoffman Crochet maxi Dress available at Principessa
Nothing says ‘summer’s here’ better than adding your favorite pair of denim shorts back into rotation. The perfect accompaniment to just about any top you can think of, a great pair of denim shorts can be the foundation of a casual summer wardrobe (especially when you live by the beach). This year it seems there are more styles than ever to choose from…classic cut-offs, high waisted, floral prints, hippie patch-work, distressed, destroyed…you name it. Whatever your flavor, we’re serving it up…and here’s just a few for inspiration :)

We’re so diggin’ all the sexy new spring styles from Citizens of Humanity at Princi right now, and like everyone else we’re especially obsessed with the floral prints! The cropped jeans are crazy cute and the shorts are off the charts!! Get a jump start on that spring wardrobe and grab a pair while they’re still around :)
When Niki Dimitras (the clever mastermind behind Luxury Jones) drops off new boots, we revert to kids-in-a-candy-store around here. Each pair has a personality all it’s own, made from vintage western boots and adorned with vintage belts, scarves, and various other treasures. You know we’re suckers for anything one-of-a-kind here at Principessa, and these Luxury Jones boots fit the bill perfectly. Genius. Thanks Niki! xo
Ladies, feel free to forward this post to your man ;)
Get a jump start on Valentines Day with Jacquie Aiche’s herkimer diamonds. I love the rawness of these gems (prong set in gold vermeil) and the fact that no two are exactly alike…it’s what makes each piece so special, beautiful, and one of a kind…just like you xo
Absolutely loving this vintage lambskin fringe top (courtesy of Madley)…especially the logo! It’s the original “Double R”…only in this case it stands for “Range Rider”…what’s not to love about that?? Be sure to stop by the store to check out all the other amazing one-of-a-kind vintage!
Here’s a quick peek at a few of the gorgeous new pieces in from 12th Street…there’s more in the store and more on the way…and now we’re off to market to see what 12th Street’s offering for Summer 2012!!
you’ve seen them in Vogue, Bazaar, and on countless fashion blogs…and now you can buy them at Principessa…TODAY!! (still unpacking the box!!)
