Walk on the Wild Side

While browsing Victoria's Secrets website last night I came across a whole section of animal print shoes and accessories which are the "trend" at the moment. Then the thought occurred that though we are yet to see costumes from Island People some of these shoes might fit the theme quite well; though the boots have high stiletto heels and some of you might think only a crazy person would wear those on Carnival think again; I saw many a diva rocking the stiletto boot this year's Carnival. I think the Skechers mary janes are too cute and look comfortable enough for those looking for a trendy cross between sneaker and shoe for Carnival as not all of us like either boots or sneakers to match our costumes:

There are some other funky finds online as well from the cheap sneakers to designer boots, all exploring the "Animal Instinct":

If the thought of animal print shoes is a bit too much for you, I know some people find them tacky, how about a pair of sunglasses to shade the eyes from the glaring sun on Carnival Monday and Tuesday while adding a little bit of the wild side to your costume? You can find sunglasses cheap enough to toss aside at the end of the day or indulge in designer frames if you wish:

Until we see actual costumes all I can do is speculate on what Island People has in store for 2008, who knows, there may not be an animal print in sight though I think to fully translate the theme there must be an animal print or two somewhere right? So while we fantasize about costumes it does not hurt to have some fun exploring the Wild Side!!
