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!

Storm King Art Center

Ok, if you had told me there was an amazing outdoor sculpture park located on 500 sprawling acres of land in New York’s Hudson Valley, I would’ve come here sooner!  Awe-inspiring pieces from acclaimed artists like Calder, Lichtenstein, Maya Lin and Noguchi dot the landscape with their creative genius.  And when I stumbled upon an actual Andy Goldsworthy stone wall, I died and went to sculpture heaven.  If you ever find yourself even remotely close to the area, run, don’t walk to Storm King.

The Venice Garden Tour

The Venice Garden Tour is tomorrow, and if you’ve never been, we think you should go! Although it’s always in Venice, the neighborhoods change each year, so each tour promises new adventures and discoveries. And since it’s Venice, you can count on a wonderful mix of beauty, strangeness, and eccentricities while you meander through private homes and gardens. And of course we think you should stop by Principessa first and get a hat…tomorrow’s forecast calls for sunny skies and not a chance of rain. Enjoy :)

Principessa loves: Big Sur

What can I say about Big Sur that hasn’t already been said…it is mystical, magical, inspirational, and perhaps one of the most captivating places on earth. And it’s just a hop, skip, and a jump away from Venice. Big Sur is where we go to relax, unwind, put things in perspective, appreciate nature, and gain a whole new level of respect for this wonderful world we live in. xo

Thomas Hill Organics, Paso Robles

If you find yourself making the journey to Paso Robles (and you should), you need to make a stop at Thomas Hill Organics. We recently had a wonderful lunch at this market-bistro/wine bar with some good friends (and a great dog named Stella). All the food is locally & organically grown, the wine selection hails mostly from the central coast, and the outdoor patio is the perfect setting for the kind of lunch that turns into dinner…loved it.

Wolf in Sheep’s Clothing

photo-copy-2

For months now, the Abbot Kinney crowd has been buzzing about the new pop-up restaurant in the Capri space called Wolf in Sheep’s Clothing…and now we know why. D & S stopped in last night and delighted in the kale salad with black apples & dates and the lamb sirloin with toasted barley & horseradish gremolata. And the staff? Super friendly. The vibe? Warm & cozy. So it seems when the chefs from Axe, Hungry Cat and Joe’s team up, the results are bound to be as amazing as you’d think…I’m sold.
