 New 911 Launch Party at Carlsen Porsche!

On Friday, April 8 from 4 - 8 pm come on by Carsen Porsche to see the brand new 911 and enjoy food, drink, entertainment and some Porsche freebies! Cost is FREE!



For the Oscars, I prefer something classical, timeless and comfortable so that those photos on the red carpet look just as great ten years from now as they do today.

This year, i thankfully had a stop in Paris on my way back from a meeting with the Porsche executives (Dr. Blume has just so much he needs my advice on!) so I could do a final fitting on a simple black Chanel gown with ruffled collar and skirts. The bill was trivial compared to renting Laguna Seca for my birthday, so I immediately hushed my human when he started to protest.

It was a wonderful evening, though rats in the theatre were regrettably scarce. You'd think the cast of Cats had been in the house!

Hope you also had an Oscar-winning evening!
