Featuring Venni Caprice

Venni Caprice is a handmade clothing line made by Boston native, Lori DiVincenzo. She built her label from the ground up over the past few years. She has had no formal training in fashion design or sewing; she is self-taught. Lori began selling her handmade clothing on eBay. Once her designs started taking off, she opened an Etsy shop. Finding great success on Etsy, Lori was able to open up a second shop with higher end items. She then started in the Fall of 2009. Venni Caprice is a "one woman show" taken to the next level. Lori designs and constructs every item in her shops. She also models her own clothing, takes her own photos, and even does the photo editing! She is on FaceBook, MySpace, she Tweets, she blogs, and she vlogs. You name it, she's got her hand in it promoting and growing her business. What a talented woman!

I own some of Lori's work and it is amazing. Her fabrics are high quality and her sewing skills are to perfection. Her clothing is fashionable, comfortable, and made to last. Though I haven't met her in person, I consider Lori a friend of mine as we have kept in touch through e-mail over the past two years. She is a hardworker, a fashionista, and definately has her act together when it comes to her business!

Here are some of my favorite pieces from Venni Caprice. The first two items are from

This is the Enigma dress from the 'Basics' collection. It is a strapless bubble dress with an Obi belt. Bust is made from poly cotton jersey. Skirt is cotton. This dress is made to order in your size! Available in XS-L.
