(This picture was taken a long time ago -- she wasn't full-grown here, believe it or not.)
It's my babycat's birthday. Well, it's my babycat's birthday observed. Since Shine was a rescue, no one knows her exact birthday, so our veterinarian and I made an educated guess. (And if you're wondering -- my favorite day of the year is May 24, which is the anniversary of the day Shine found me. Or I found her. However you want to look at it.)
Shine is always elegant, due to her color scheme. Black & white, as Coco Chanel could have told you, is always stylish, and her lovely pink nose and toes add just a hint of feminine color and keep things from being too severe. I've always thought Shine would do very well in France, given that she's naturally chic.
Okay, yes. I'm being extremely silly here. But I will say, I found myself wearing a lot of black & white & pink for the first six or eight months after she came to live with me. She was very influential. Herewith, some other yummy delights that would go nicely with my Shine. Click for links.
A hat too wonderful for words.
They also come in white.
Black pencil skirt, crisp white button front blouse, these shoes. Don't forget to wiggle a little when you walk.
