Was the YSL Sale Worth the Wait?

Like many of you, I knew the wait to get inside the YSL sale would be long.  It’s one of those sales on the radar of every fashionable woman and man in New York City.  Plus, it’s been rumored to be one of the last such sales for the label.  For these reasons, I wanted to take part so I took the day off, got up bright and early to stand in line.  A friend joined me[...]
