A white cat black sweater

Again I am wearing "a cat on my chest", and again I am in black-and-white, except for the hint of red on the kitten's neck and the sweater's sleeves. The sweater was bought in London during my recent stay there. There were plenty of cute sweaters on sale, with deer, snowmen, Santa, Christmas trees, puppies and whatever else on them. But I felt it was all not quite what I wanted. And then finally, I found this black sweater with a white kitty on it that had won my sympathy instantly.

Went like this for the casual pre-New Year dinner with friends. Only girls. We spent time gossiping about men, discussing latest fashion, sharing "how to stay slim" secrets and... enjoying our food. Look what delicacies we had there:

varieties of bread

sea-food cocktail

fresh strawberry cakes

mini jamun (Indian sweets) with fresh strawberry fondue

apricot cheese cakes

It is getting colder here too and though it is sunny and quite warm during daytime, one needs a coat in the evenings. Not to break my black-and-white ensemble I wore my white faux fur coat that was bought 7 years ago. Still looks like new

Well, have a nice day everybody!
