Michael Jackson says, "Say no to prescription drugs."

As I near the end of a decade, I always wonder what fashion trends will define it. Like in 50 years, when they say, "Let's all dress up like the 00s for Halloween" (like we dress in poodle skirts and bobby sox for the 50s) what will we wear?
Well, let's see. The glitz and glam of the two-thousands made sequins acceptable workwear, thrilled with the frill of ruffles, declared the same acid green of the 60s as the new black, made metallic the fabric of our lives, accessorized with S&M paraphernalia and proved that the animal print was still alive and well and kicking in our closets.
Animal skins went wilder than any Cro-magnon ever dreamed!
I admit it. Just the other day I pinned a faux leopard fur collar (that I saved from the 80s) to my jean jacket. And I have a whole "zoo" of animal print handbags (zebra, giraffe, gator, etc.)
During the '00s you could find animal prints EVERYWHERE!
a kid's best friend...
a man's best friend...
And a girl's best friend:
Soooo '00--combining both glitzy metallic and animal print into one trendy boot (that the kid will outgrow in a month--only $68 at Saks.)
And how can we talk about the animal trend without a shoe...in this case a boot--sort of.
I think the open-toed shoe/boot has some staying power so we may have to save that look for our "teens decade" halloween costume.
Anyway...here's my prediction. For our "Remember 2000" party we will don animal print in all its glory. I already picked out my costume:
Man, I can't wait! Problem is in 50 years I'll be well over 100--if I live that long...but that's a whole 'nother blog post.
