The Truth of It All

So . . . the big shopping news this weekend is that Truth District is closing for a 2-day, members-only 50% off sale extravaganza (join the Truth District Update Group for free until Saturday, Oct 8, 12 pm SLT to get in). Expect oodles of sale goodies from the A-list lineup of stores there, including this fabby new "Fall" skin fatpack by Curio (!) for $500L.
Needless to say, Mr. Truth Hawks is also debuting some new styles to kick off the event, including this lovely "Isla" updo, each with its own precise hairbase for a perfectly "natural" match to each shade. You can find most of the items I'm wearing here at the Truth District sale; I added an oversized buckle bag for a military touch, some $50L scallopped print leggings + this nicely textured green jacket, which you can currently scoop for free at Pink Outfitters.
I'm also showing another new Truth hairstyle available this week, this shaggy "Hadley" bob style available exclusively at the Truth District satellite store, featuring a gorges roots option that I really like. -- These chunky drop earrings are the $4L Bliensen + MaiTai vintage gift at 4.44.444 that I mentioned in yesterday's post; the tusk necklace was a $1L find at Glow Studio, which I layered with some perky owl motif jewelry by Je Suis (these gems are color-change, so they literally go with just about everything).
*AND NOW FOR THE RANT: Dear readers, as you know, I rarely (if ever) use this blog to rant about anything, but we encountered something this week that I simply can't keep mum about. It has come to our attention that another store has recently began selling a hearts feets tattoo that is nearly identical in positioning, size, shape + otherwise extremely similar to our "Hearts of Queens" tattoo that we originally created for a blog post earlier this summer on SLexy Fashionista. Whatever the reason behind this incident in fact occurring, when Gavin tried to reach out to the creator to discuss it, what followed was some name-calling and fairly obnoxious commentary thrown our way, including some strong opinions about our (apparent) lack of intelligence. -- It's rotten enough to feel as if you've been pirated (regardless of whether or not that's what actually happened!), but this kind of (overly) aggressive behavior makes me want to FedEx these girls straight to that VH1 show where they teach hopeless souls some freakin' etiquette (Charm School). -- Don'tcha just love classy people? Ugh.

And now back to our regularly scheduled programming. Truthfully yours love + fashionista kisses to all!
