Attention bosses: Your fashionable female staffers may be late for work this morning, as the Intermix Warehouse sale kicked off at 8:00am sharp. The warehouse sale offers discounts up to 80% off retail prices; there is also a buy-5-items-and-get-the-6th-for-$1 offer.
First, hit the small designer section organized by designers, including See by Chloe, M Missoni and Stella McCartney. Zac Posen and Proenza Schouler were listed, but we only found a few items. A good number of designer items are under $200. The main section offerings are mostly spring and summer items—lots of silk party tops, dresses, shorts and summer sandals (starting at $29 for Jeffrey Campbell gladiators). We spotted a couple good investments for fall, such as a silk/cashmere GOLDE grey and plum shawl cardigan for $49 (from $285). There is a denim section with good deals on Stella McCartney, J Brand, Current/Elliot and Siwey. Most jeans sell between $49 to $99 in sizes from 24-31 and in various washes and styles.
In the main room (organized by type of clothes and size), the general layout is as follows: On the right are bottoms (denim, pants, shorts) and dresses and tops on the left. The shoes are located at the back left. There are also bins, organized by size in the middle of the room, containing slouchy tees and random items mostly between $29 and $49. (Those pleather pants from the last sale were spotted in the bins this time around, too!)
Perhaps jumpsuits and harem pants are this sale's pleather pants, as there is a plethora of both at all price points (from a Marley electric blue jumpsuit at $59 to the Stella McCartney silver satin number at $429). There is a large communal dressing room for shoppers and the thumping club music clearly encourages shoppers to buy those party clothes. By 9:30am, the winding checkout line rivaled the Jimmy Choo crush from yesterday.—Fawnia Soo Hoo
