Oh man, I can’t even begin to tell you guys how awesome these lace up boots are. I am straight up obsessed with these shoes. 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!
Here’s a photo of me 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 hangry. Luckily, Sung and I finished quickly and headed over to Springfield, VA to get our nom on at Halal Guys. If you haven’t tried their platters yet, you need to drop everything you’re doing right now and head on over. Like, I’m not messing around! Their mixed platters (lamb + chicken) are so good it doesn’t even make sense.
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 called 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. 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 places so drop me a line below!
