Disappointed tote hopefuls outside YSL
Yves Saint Laurent was supposed to hand out free totes outside their store at 855 Madison Ave starting at 1:45 this afternoon, but apparently the giveaway generated more frustration than good will. Writes a tipster: "Waited in line for an hour and was just told there are no more bags. Hundreds of shoppers waiting in front of Madison Ave location left angry and confused. Totally disorganized effort on the part of the all-blond and rude street team handing out the bags." [Racked Inbox]
