Intermix just can't compete on that level. As a matter of fact, it has lost a lot of designer brands like Saint Laurent and Fendi. There are only so many times you can sell the same woman on Rockstuds.
Another huge differentiation among luxury retailers is customer service. Intermix online is a far cry from the customer service offered by Net-A-Porter or inside Bergdorf Goodman. Nonetheless, Intermix is ideally located and always carries what you need regardless of where you are going-- St. Barths, South Hampton or Madison Avenue casual.
The best part of shopping at Intermix right now is that the store has winter merchandise discounted 75% off. The sale is also online. The online selection is okay but misses the better designer options like Pucci, Stella, Proenza,and Barardi.

Highlights include, a Peter Pilotto paneled coat for $949 from $3280, a Stella McCartney wild cat print tunic is $299 from $1220 and an Elizabeth & James sequined dress is $199 from $465. The online price of the sequined dress is only $160 after the promotion extra 20% discount.
Among the shoes and bags we found Fendi t-straps for $329, Nicholas Kirkwood pearl platforms for $309 and Chloe scalloped ballet flats for $369. If you're a size 36 or 36.5, you don't want to miss these Rockstud boots that are now about $700 from $2100. This Sara Battaglia bag in a more subdued color is $519 from $1835.
The downside to all these great deals is that all sales are final. If you're not buying something you've worn before it might be a better idea to hit the store.
