On an off day it's always nice to know you can find a bit of solace on Madison Avenue. This is especially true at the height of sale season. If you are going to hit any store along Madison, we suggest you take a spin through Intermix.
The discount is currently an additional 50% off the second markdown. We found several Matthew Williamson dresses discounted to $200 from almost $900. A $900 Stella McCartney top is now about $250. A buttery leather jacket is reduced to under $5,000. Before you ask, it's Balmain and was originally $16,000. As a matter of fact, there are several Balmain pieces on the reduced rack. You can safely assume anything over $1k is Balmain. In addition, there are several nice Zac Pozen dresses and Helmut Lange pieces on the extra markdown rack.
We suggest bypassing the website, which doesn't hold a candle to the boutique's inventory. If all fails, a great cappuccino at Sant Ambroeus is waiting for you just across the street.
