 We’re back! Our website is alive & kicking and better than ever….and growing every day! Of course this means constant photo shoots…and what better location than Abbot Kinney? Our neighborhood is a huge part of who we are…we’ve been on this street for over a decade and have watched in total amazement as it’s evolved into one of the most talked-about streets in the world! We’ve loved our hood since day one…and in an effort to honor and celebrate our eclectic, magical, bohemian beach town, we do all of our web shoots on and around Abbot Kinney. The crowds, the cars, the construction, the alleys, the graffiti…we love it all & we use it all. Makes for the perfect backdrop if you ask us! Come visit the shop the next time you’re in Venice, or check us out at www.principessavenice.com 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!

Sartorialist Surfing

I’m always so inspired by street fashion…the way everyday girls interpret the trends (or buck them all together) and put their own unique spin on them.  In my opinion, the best site for this real-life fashion voyeurism is still The Sartorialist. If you don’t already have it bookmarked, you should!  The photography is beautiful, the peeps are relatable (for the most part) and you can’t help but get inspired by these women (and men) of all ages and the creative ways they make a statement.

Twysted Thystle

It’s no secret that I’m a sucker for great packaging…and these teas are a perfect example.  I came across Twysted Thystle while browsing Etsy and instantly fell in love with these teas!  Each label is hand-drawn by their illustrator Heather and depicts all the herbs that are in that particlar tea…love that.  The company is totally green, and totally run by women…mothers, sisters, and daughters.  They also boast a Certified Aromatherapist, Deb Garnett, who has been studying herbs for health and healing for over 15 years, so you can be assured these teas will deliver.  While they’re based in the beautiful Colorado Rocky Mountains, the teas are available to everyone via their Etsy shop here.
