Food Fashion edition: Dear Blissful Bite,

Blissful Bite's Hassome avocado and tacos

Blissful Bite’s Hassome avocado and tacos

This originally began as a love letter to Lawrence’s only active food truck, Blissful Bite. But my extremely fashionable friends came up with the brilliant idea to draw inspiration from our chosen lunch place and design our outfits around it and so, the Food Fashion edition was born.

So I still want to express my love for a delicious, healthful, homemade rice-and-veggie-filled burrito and cup of cool three-mint water, but I have to look the part too. Vegetarian food made me think of hippies, so I picked a  long skirt, leather wristband and wooden earrings. But I put my own bright, office twist on it with pattern and color.

Maggie chose a green blouse (for veggies) with polka dots (round, like the wheels of a food truck). Jahmal also chose green colors with a floral pattern shirt. All in all, the food was delicious and its eaters, fashionable.

Dear The Roost,

Where have you been all my life? As a brunching connoisseur, my main goal in life is to brunch the hell out of a town, but lately I’ve found it difficult – not to say that there isn’t some delicious brunch here. Oh no, there is but it’s not its own category. But this. The Roost is a brand new haven for brunch and the answer to all my breakfast prayers.

First, you have a bloody mary menu with six options. I chose the NoLaw (North Lawrence), which featured local pickles (pickled by the owner himself), the perfect blend of spices and garlic.

Then came the tomato + avocado benny. I can’t come up with the words to describe it’s perfection and flavor. I remember having to consciously keep myself from inhaling it (ladies don’t scarf food, no matter how scarfable it may be).

But the best part? That I get to come back and visit you again. And again. And again.

Love,
A
