Oh man, I can’t even begin to tell you guys how awesome these shoes are. I am straight up obsessed with these over-the-knee boots. I’ve been lusting for a pair for god knows how long, BUT I wasn’t ready to drop serious $$$ on them so I controlled my shopping urges. Lucky for me, I found an affordable version at Amiclubwear. Black’s no longer available – they (unfortunately) sold out a few days ago – but they still carry ’em in royal blue, burgundy, and olive. They’re surprisingly comfortable for sky high heels, so naturally, I HIGHLY recommend checking them out. It also doesn’t hurt that they’re on sale for $31!
Getting my strut on! I was actually really hungry when I shot this look so if my face looks a bit off, it’s probably because I was crazy hangry, ha. Luckily, Sung and I finished quickly and headed over to Springfield, VA to get our nom on at The Halal Guys. If you haven’t tried their platters out yet, you need to drop EVERYTHING you’re doing and head on over stat. Like, I’m not messing around! Their mixed platters (lamb + chicken) are the bomb.com.
I used to live in NYC – I got my master’s degree in piano performance at Juilliard back in the day – and cnr (aka chicken ‘n rice aka what the cool kids call it) was how I treated myself weekly. If I had a bad day, I walked on over to their food cart and stuffed my face with zero shame whatsoever. I know it sounds really basic, but everything’s cooked to perfection, and the sauces are to DIE for. Every time I go, the workers there think I’m going to die because I get SO much hot sauce, but I always live to tell the tale! In all seriousness though, go easy on the spice if you’re trying it for the first time – it’s pretty ridiculous.
I’m so glad that they went global though. It’s a ways drive from my place, but that’s probably a good thing, ha. It would’ve been great for my taste buds but terrible for my diet! Have you guys tried their food? Who here’s a fan of food trucks? Also, if you live in the DMV, what restaurants do you recommend? I’m always looking to try new things so drop me a line below!
