Could this be the world's cheapest dress? Possibly! It's a product of Sarah Jessica Parker's foray into fashion design. This fantastic blue dress is from her line, Bitten, available in Steve and Barry's for $8.98. Steve and Barry's also carries "Dear" by Amanda Bynes and "Eleven" by Venus Williams. Guess what else? Everything in Steve and Barry's is less than $10.00! Who says you can't shop during a recession?
“For a lot of people — young women, middle-age women, regular women — there is this idea about wanting fashion in an affordable way. They are living in a less rarefied world.” - Sarah Jessica Parker
