The motto of Sarah Jessica Parker's Bitten line for Steve & Barry's is that fashion is not a privelage, it's a right and I have to say that her jeans definitely fit the bill! She set out to design a line of clothing that was fashionable, good quality and affordable. At 8.98 a pair I'd say she achieved her goal.
She has several different styles of jeans in her line but the style I purchased was the dark wash, boyfriend jean. This style is a dark blue denim and the fit is low rise on the waistline where it fits nicely and then they are a little roomier through the hips and thighs. Not baggy but not skin-tight either. They fit very nicely and can really be dressed up or down. I wore them once with a cute little top and flip-flops and tomorrow night I'm wearing them with a dressier top and heels so they are very versatile. The material is lightweight and very comfortable. The jeans also have some subtle distressing on the hem of the front pockets and along the bottom hem of the legs, nothing extreme, just a slight detail that gives them some character.
The whole Bitten line has some really great stuff and the price I listed is the regular price, that's not a sale, it's not clearance. That is the every day price of every item at my local Steve & Barry's store. The Bitten line also carries sizez 0-22 so there are clothes there for pretty much everyone.
