More from Principessa Model Muse Angelina Bordeaux

ABPRINCI1

Often times when we do a photo shoot, tons of gorgeous pics end up on the cutting room floor…and when you shoot a beauty like Angelina, it’s a damn shame!  So we thought we’d share some of these with you…after all, beautiful pictures are meant to be seen!  xx

IMG_4351PRINCI

 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

She is stunning!! Next time you’re in Venice, come by and check her out in person…

this week at Princi…

princivenicemw2

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 :)

we’re having a sale y’all

The Venice Garden Tour

IMG_3113

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 :)

Gregory Beauchamp aka ‘beauchamping’

1

In the “not-just-because-he’s-my-boyfriend” category, talented local artist Gregory Beauchamp is really making a name for himself these days. Featured in the ‘sneak peek’ section of Design*Sponge yesterday, Gregory’s home is a true example of Venice living…half the treasures were found at local flea markets and alleyways! And his beautiful art is a reflection of his home…simple, thoughtful, inspirational and best of all, affordable! His work has been published in several books and magazines and he’s been featured on countless design blogs…thought it was high time I gave my man a little shout out of my own :)
