Say “bye, bye” to clothing at ridiculous prices and too-good-to-be-true fabulous finds from Sarah Jessica Parker.

But first, say “hello” to Steve & Barry’s LIQUIDATION SALES!

They’ll last five to seven weeks, with some stores closing sooner.

According to AP reports, the inventory to be liquidated is worth about $250 million.

As we know, Steve & Barry’s filed for bankruptcy in July.

Despite statements that they’d remain open, they’re conceding to nationwide closure.

According to AP,  the chain “fell victim to the deteriorating consumer spending climate.”

So sad!

Steve & Barry’s LLC has announced that it filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy on Wednesday.

We haven’t yet figured out what this means for the millions of consumers who probably flood their stores in search of easy-on-the-pocket clothing.

Will prices go up?

Will some of the designers and lines like SJP’s Bitten be dropped?

Will they forgo plans to add Ciara to the celeb designer lineup?

Will some of the stores be closed down?

Who knows…

We’ll keep you posted.

Meanwhile Steve and Barry’s has released a statement assuring customers that its 276 retail locations are open today and conducting business as usual. 

After Sarah Jessica Parker’s launch of Bitten for Steve & Barry’s, another member of the SATC team is stepping out with a line of her own.

Payless ShoeSource officials are calling the line an exclusive capsule collection designed by Field, renowned for her work as stylist on the Sex & the City(R) TV series and an Oscar(R) nominee for her costume designs for “The Devil Wears Prada.”

The collection is available beginning this week in select stores and Payless.com for $25 to $35 an item.

The Patricia Field for Payless Summer Collection is broader and features four shoe styles and a clutch with a strong focus on colored metallics. Shoe silhouettes include the Princess ballet flat, Empress Roman-inspired strappy flat sandal, Tsarina mix-metallic heeled slide, and the Heiress round-toe pump.

The styles are adorned with sparkling details including faux gemstone studding and “disco ball” metallic materials guaranteed to infuse glam-rock style into any wardrobe. Shoppers can get their Patricia Field looks — just in time for the release of long-awaited Sex & the City movie — for which Field was stylist and costume designer.

“We have been thrilled to work with Patricia, America’s style icon, to style our consumer marketing, as well as to bring her designs to shoppers nationwide with the Patricia Field for Payless collection,” said Matthew Rubel, CEO and president of Payless ShoeSource.
