The high-end Fifth Avenue store, Intermix, is one of six sister shops spread throughout the island of Manhattan. The stark white interior houses pricey clothing from top designers, with a few, more affordable (if you can call it that) contemporary labels mixed in.

Intermix in Midtown East is modest in size albeit larger than its SoHo counterpart downtown yet seemingly holds the same amount of merchandise. With European and American styles neatly blended together on sturdy racks, you are sure to find a super glam outfit for your next big outing. Ranging from denim to dresses, Intermix has some great items from the likes of Alexander Wang, Rag & Bone, Elizabeth & James, Chloe, and DVF. Given the small size of Intermix, it is sometimes challenging to find something you like in your size. For the more popular items (i.e. Alexander Wang tops) size small is scarce but be sure to inquire with the friendly attendants before growing disappointed. They are very helpful and given the five additional stores throughout the city, it is possible you can luck out and find your size elsewhere. Sparkling clean tables are adorned with wedges, boots, and pumps from Rag & Bone, Brian Atwood, and Bottega Veneta, all with price tags in the $700 range.

Intermix also carries the popular Mulberry bags, which will at least cost you $1,200. Thank all that is good for the large sale section positioned in the back of the store, conveniently near the dressing rooms. Especially within a store like this, these sections are our saving grace. At the end of each season Intermix moves the older items to the back, marking their tags with stickers and red marker to indicate sales that can reach up to 80% off. While there I noticed a great Elizabeth & James black blazer for $234, marked down from $595. Intermix seems to be a hit or miss, there is plenty to browse but not much to buy, unless, of course you have a disposable income.
