Beautiful are the holes I fell into, where you got bitten

It was only going to be a matter of time before my favourite style maven launched her own clothing line. Sarah Jessica Parker has created a new prepwear line called BITTEN. Here's the best part: it's totally affordable! Every piece is priced at less than $20. The collection can be found in Steve & Barry's stores across the United States.
Designed for women of all ages and sizes, with a full size range from XS-XXL in tops, 0-22 in bottoms, BITTEN also includes shoes in sizes 5-11.
I find this whole concept to be incredibly refreshing. Most celebrities are jacking up the prices of anything with their names attached to it. It's about time a line came out from somebody we love that we can actually afford. While I would be lying if I said that I absolutely adore every single piece, (certainly not everything is my style) I must say that in general, there are tons of great separates to work with. Cute tees, comfy jersey dresses and adorable trouser shorts and the price is definitely right. I think that the line will become a favourite among students and those of us who are watching the budget and trying to save our pennies.
"It's about affordable, well-made American sportswear. It's about fashion not being a luxury," Sarah Jessica says. "It's really, really important to us that it be good, feel good, have a life, that it make a difference in your life and that you have money left over to live."

Yay for Miss Parker, and here's to a new season of fun fashion that's as easy on the bank account as it is on the eyes!

Watch for an America's Next Top Model post to come later in the week...(at the suggestion of fellow blogger Gus Greeper) I will be doing a weekly wrap up of our favourite fashion reality show.
I have a date with Kanye West & Ludacris tonight, so I will be a day behind but I promise to do my best to have it up before the end of the week!
