It's the first day of fall, which means that Halloween will be upon us in only 39 days—that spectacular spectacle of a holiday where kids get to eat candy until they get sick or pass out post-sugar rush, and women get to dress up as slutty as they please. Trashy Lingerie on La Cienega is already on top of it with decoration and body-baring costumes aplenty. Sexy pirate, sexy nurses, sexy police officers, the sexy maid if all else fails. We don't know if it's a sign of the times, but there's a lot of military options as well for those that was to 'support the troops' via frilly, two-piece army uniform. [RackedWire]
