I am just SO ready for spring--aren't you! Unfortunately, we're still in the cool, windy California weather before it starts to get nice and warm!

For this mixed season weather, I like something that's just warm enough and not too formal. So I designed a faux fur and blue silk wrap to kick off my spring collection and had it made in Paris. It can pair with pearls for a daytime look, or you can dress it up for the evening with diamonds preferably in platinum settings.

It always so important to look good! Never know when the paparazzi will find you!

Wild Preying Boxster spotted at Thunderhill

We all know Porsches are famous for "eating" other vehicles. However, few realize that the Wild Preying Boxster does this literally, relying on its long, sticky tongue to catch other vehicles and draw them for digestion--a process best not watched. One was spotted two weeks ago at Thunderhill, though too late to stop it from devouring a full-sized pickup truck which was out on the track checking for endangered Buena Vista Lake shrews before the cars went out.

Thankfully, the WPB is only known to prey on Porsches when Chevy engines are installed.

Thanks for reading! Have your human take their Porsche out and drive it!
