Bitten with SJP at Steve and Barry's

My first celebrity sighting! Afeter two and a half years of living in New York, I finally saw a celebrity (I don't get out that much).
I went to Steve and Barry's this morning to check out the Bitten collection that came out and decided to stay for the autograph signing with Sarah Jessica Parker. It was a long wait, this was only one fourth of the line:

In the end though, it was worth it, I made a friend, I shook SJP's hand, told her how awesome she is. She was very sweet, told me I looked very pretty and thank you so much for coming, then she signed the picture and I was off:
Unfortunately we were not allowed to take pictures, but I had to sneak one...

(she's the blurr sitting down)
However I did manage to have Suesan, the girl I met there, take my picture next to the poster:

I suppose it's better than nothing :)

You're right bizzybee, she's very much like her character in SATC. Thanks! I would have loved to get a picture with the real SJP though. Someday maybe ;)

Your experience was almost like a "Carrie booksigning." I think it's really cool and the picture of you standing next to the SJP / Bitten poster is adorable.

That's so cool you got to meet SJP! I'd never heard of Steve and Barry's before Bitten, either. The nearest one is 30 minutes away, so I went to check it out. The line is perfect for basics...but yeah, there was a serious lack of summer dresses.

Yes, I did buy myself a little outfit, just a skirt, a blue top and flip flops!! I forgot to mention that in the excitement :) I was somewhat disapointed not to see more dresses, especially simple summer dresses. The collection has several different little black dresses and a couple of jersey dresses in different colors, but that's about it. There are several skirts, and some cute linen pants and jackets. It's a very good place for basics. I couldn't believe my eyes at the price of jeans, especially in New York, it's absolutely unheard of!

That's awesome! What did you buy? I have a Steve & Barry's about 40 minutes from my house so I'll be getting some Bitten clothing soon!

That is so cool! The closest Steve & Barry's (I've never heard of that store before Bitten) is 2 hours away :( I probably won't be buying any Bitten

The pictures aren't great though, it was just my camera phone...
