I'm writing this sipping on my oh-so-delicious Bubble Tea. Now, I've had the drink before with different flavors and all: in China I couldn't quite get my question across to ask what exactly I was drinking and in the malls with terribly firm bubble (tapioca) balls. This time, I visited the known Tea-ism in DC and gave it another chance to experience the flavor of the place. I had a chicken bento box and a bubble tea (original flavor- with yummy soft and sweet bubbles). All of it was delicious! Now, I see why Rachael Ray herself came to the tea house, why my Spanish meetup group chooses this place to meet up and why the Food network featured cookie makers who sales cookies out of Teaism.
So on with the post and why I'm really writing today (just pretend that you are sipping bubble tea too)... On Saturday, I rode out with the homegirl Slvrlips and her sister in pursuit of makeup. On our journey, I was informed that we'd be in the same locale as an infamous Steve and Barry's where Sarah Jessica Parker's line Bitten is exclusively sold. ( I didn't even know I was within driving distance of a Steve and Barry's, let alone heard of it before Bitten.) For those in my DMV area, it's located in Potomac Mills Mall; yes people still shop there lol.
I was pretty impressed by the selection Sarah! Nice clean, GAP-esque pieces. The classic work shirts did it for me, but there were an assortment of items to choose from: sweaters, casual shirts, a cocktail black dress, lounge wear/ intimates and jeans. I didn't have time to try out the jeans (I HATE TRYING ON CLOTHES) but now I'm all too curious, as I heard they were long enough for the high hipped and long leg female-- not the usual short leg dubbed as 'average' length.
