Still dazed from this morning's trip to the Barneys Warehouse sale (for the record, our haul included a pair of dark denim J brand jeans for $79, a black Balenciaga sweater for $99 and a silk Daryl K dress for $130), we headed uptown to check out the scene at Steve & Barry's. Today was the day that teen star Amanda Bynes' clothing line Dear launched at the mass retailer, and the uber-tan, apple-cheeked girl was there in the flesh to sign autographs. Judging by crowd size, Bynes has more fans than Sarah Jessica Parker, as this morning's line far exceeded what we encountered when Bitten debuted. But most people waiting outside the store this morning were there strictly for autographs. We were less than impressed with the brightly-colored clothing, which looked as cheap as it was.
Bynes greets the media and her adoring fans.
Did you know that Steve & Barry's sold Primp thermals? Well, they kinda do now.
These jeans look like they were "inspired" by Hudson. Nice one Amanda.
