Some special moments and places still make New York, New York.

Just yesterday, my good pal Kim and I went to check out the charming little tea pop-up shoppe of Waris.  We sipped on oolong tea from the Himalayas, in what seemed like a bottomless pot, and Cafe Cluny granola.

The shop carries: Olympia LeTan (the first time her totes will be sold stateside), Assouline and Sponge Skincare and Bar Pitti olive oil.  Take heed: The French 50th edition poster of Breathless about to run out.

We also met the nicest guy around, Gregory Sparks from Boffo.   The tea went down even better.  Check out the remaining Building Fashion fall schedule.

Oh, Waris’ tea, today is his last day.  It’s worth it.   Make time.
