ONLINE—In the New York Post today, Whitney Port made the following tragic statement: "I break down a couple of times a week, at least. It gets overwhelming. Sometimes I think that I can't take this anymore. I just want to live a normal life." Christopher Sauve, of "Save Anna!" and Rachel Zoe lawsuit fame, was so moved by her plight that he designed a limited run of 50 "Save Whitney" t-shirts. (Clever detail: Sauve, who worked at DVF, has festooned Whitney with the same lapel pin DVF interns have to wear.) The shirts should be on his website by tomorrow, but if you're desperate to start saving Whitney ASAP, you can email him at firstname.lastname@example.org. [NYP; Racked Inbox]
SOHO—In all the hoopla about Topshop, we've neglected one very important element of the opening ceremonies: Free food. Our sister site Eater reports that Pinkberry will be handing out free frozen yogurt for those waiting to enter the store. And Madewell, in an act of unprecedented neighborliness, is offering free coffee and donuts to anyone who comes in. Bring in the sleeve from your coffee, and you can get a free t-shirt with any pair of Madewell jeans. [Eater; Racked Inbox]
