Pull over food trucks, it’s time to make room for FASHION TRUCKS! From the runways to the roadways, styles found its place in the streets! What began as an underground indie movement is quickly gaining steam with fashionistas coast-to-coast. In a struggling economy, mobile stores provide shop owners a more cost-friendly way to run their businesses. Many of these boutiques-on-the-go connect with shoppers via Twitter and Facebook to allow followers to find them no matter where they are. Here are The Blonde and The Brunette’s top truck picks!
