Sarah Jessica Parker Looking for New Home for Bitten

Mega-chain Steve & Barry’s has been having financial woes for the past few months, including multiple bankruptcy filings, which has led us to wonder what is happening to their star lines? Remember, Amanda Bynes, Stephon Marbury and Sarah Jessica Parker have all designed affordable fashion lines for the stores. NYMag.com caught up with SJP last night, who revealed she is looking for a new home for her Bitten line. “We have a lot of home offers,” Parker said. “We have to make sure that any partner we enter into an agreement with wants the same thing for the brand as we do, which is to serve the customer first. You know, it can’t be about commerce, it has to be about the customer, and we have to see who’s really willing to be that generous.” And not to worry, she’s keeping her original commitment to affordable clothing — the majority of the line is under $20. “Now, more than ever, people need all things that are about economy,” she continued. “So I want very much to continue it in the right way. So we just have to figure out what’s right for the customer, and how to do it in these economic times.” We’ll be waiting and watching!

Did anyone purchase anything from SJP’s line? I saw a few pieces online, but wasn’t sure of the quality. I would appreciate some feedback! Thanks.

I completely forgot she had a clothing line.
That’s not a good sign.

Looks likes somebody’s been “bitten” on her dress.

I got a couple things from her line.
I wasn’t impressed.
The jeans didn’t fit flatteringly. (I bought off ebay we don’t have a steve & barry’s near where I live.)
I bought a sweater, which was kind of cute, but too short. I got the project runway trapeze dress. (Was actually nice. Just too short, and it didn’t look good on me.) And a bag, which the seam was ripping out of and I had to resew it.

I give kudos to SJP for keeping the prices low and not hopping on the band wagon of over priced celebirty clothing lines. It may not be the best made but for trendy items, you typically won’t wear them for long.
