I’ve been shopping at INTERMIX for years. And if use my own shopping history as any indication (as well as the remains of the massive closet clean-out I’m currently undertaking), there are two main reasons I keep coming back to INTERMIX:

One, investment pieces. My much-worn IRO leather jacket comes immediately to mind. I saved up for the darn thing for years, and have never once regretted the purchase. It was an INTERMIX exclusive, and because I bought it during my birthday month (six or seven??!! years ago), INTERMIX gave me 15% off. Additionally, I consider my L’Agence denim jacket (the one I wore everywhere last summer — the insanely comfy one that feels like a sweater) to be an investment piece, albeit a more affordable one than my leather jacket. Both pieces will be ones I wear forever, ones that have (and will) survive alllll of my crazy closet clean-outs. I highly recommend browsing INTERMIX for investment pieces — the retailer often carries special cuts or colors that are unique, yet timeless.

Right now, INTERMIX is running a sitewide 25% off sale with free shipping now through Friday, 3/27! You can also use my code MOMEDIT15 to get 15% off full-priced items through 4/30 (exclusions apply).

Two...INTERMIX’s own in-house label. Not only is this line more affordable than most of their inventory (many pieces are under $300 even before the flash sale), but the quality of these pieces is so freaking high. I’ve noticed that other retailers have also created their own in-house brands, but typically the quality isn’t great (the fabrics tend toward acrylic and polyester).

Not so with the INTERMIX label.

I wore INTERMIX’s 100% silk romper to Italy last summer, and it was one of the best things I packed. Silk isn’t nearly as hot as other fabrics (even with my legs covered), and I hand-washed it, then hung to dry. Practical and so pretty. I wore an INTERMIX label blouse to NYFW one year, and my ancient cropped sweater-tank that has survived countless closet clean-outs (and a couple of moves across country) — because it is literally perfect — is also from INTERMIX in-house line.

INTERMIX: Investment Pieces, A Seriously Good In-House Label & Donation Love

Three…..I also realize — especially in these uncertain times — what a privilege it is to even be shopping. And this article, on a normal day, would be a no-brainer. I love INTERMIX, and can wholeheartedly recommend its products….but this is hardly a normal day. So please know that The Mom Edit will be donating 100% of our commissions from the sale of INTERMIX pieces in the month of March to No Kid Hungry. (The Citi Foundation is offering a match of up to $2M for donations, so please consider donating even if you have no plans to shop.)

Current Favorites From INTERMIX’s In-House Label

At the moment, I’m obsessed with INTERMIX’s Elroy v-neck cashmere sweater. I’ve been looking for a wear-everyday, v-neck sweater for years (I wanted something a little more sexy than my usual turtleneck), but I’ve had some trouble. Either the v-neckline was too high (I might as well wear a turtleneck at that point) or too low (ugh, complicated), or the sleeves weren’t long enough (a problem I find in many cashmere sweaters).

INTERMIX’s Elroy v-neck cashmere sweaters are perfect. I don’t know who designs their in-house line, but this experience is pretty typical of the INTERMIX label a high attention to detail, a fit reminiscent of really expensive designer labels (no skimping on the sleeves), and overall a really fresh, modern aesthetic.

I’m wearing the sweater with INTERMIX label pants, too. These INTERMIX Francesca Wide-Leg pants are insanely comfy, so freaking cute, and the details make me swoon. (Sidenote: I hacked off several inches with scissors…so if you’re tall, they’ll probably fit without, uh, “hemming”.)

True to form, the fabric makes the pants. They’re made out of some sort of lightweight denim, which is perfect for summer…yet they’re substantial enough to effortlessly pair with sweaters — truly a year-round pant! I appreciate the little details, too. The frayed hem at the top (and the cuffs…I did cut part of mine off, haha), and a tiny hidden button that will help keep the pants closed even if the zipper decides to throw a party.

Did I mention they’re soft? Like…sit at a desk and work all day soft? WELL THEY ARE.

Perfect Cream Pants…One More Outfit

Sneaks and sweaters aside, these pants have enough cool details (and a seriously chic shape) to really dress them up. And since INTERMIX makes its own 100% silk cami (now on sale), let’s play a little dress-up, shall we?

Sidenote: If you are worried about your stuff showing in these open-cage bags…just use an old silk scarf to line it/hide your stuff.

  1. I hate to leave you some negative feedback given how much we need positivity out there more than ever… this post is so tone deaf and disconnected. Maybe all of your readers are rolling in disposable income, I don’t know. But have you any idea how many Americans filed for unemployment this week? A $1,200 leather jacket? A cami and crop pant outfit for $450? You do you, but I am definitely opting out.

    • I’m surprised by these comments. While not all of our readers are rolling in disposable income…we do have a pretty diverse reader base. For those who do have a situation that allows them to take advantage of Intermix’s sale, The Mom Edit has pledged to donate 100% of our profits from the sale to No Kid Hungry, and organization that is helping to feed kids during these school closures.

  2. I agree with the previous comment 100%. It’s so incredibly tone deaf it’s borderline offensive. Read your blog for years, unsubscribing and unfollowing for good.

    • Please keep in mind that people in all different types of financial situations read The Mom Edit. Also please keep in mind that The Mom Edit has contracts – signed before the worldwide pandemic – that we have committed to fulfill. Given the state of the world, we decided to turn this sponsored post into a way to raise money for No Kid Hungry. Perhaps you missed this part? “Three…..I also realize — especially in these uncertain times — what a privilege it is to even be shopping. And this article, on a normal day, would be a no-brainer.

  3. I am surprised by these negative comments too…I am leaving a comment specifically to say thank you for acknowledging that many of us can’t shop right now. We don’t have an income at the moment due to the pandemic and don’t know when work will resume, so I am in the not shopping boat, but I am still enjoying perusing and reading. It’s a nice distraction, and of course, I know many people are still in a position to be able to shop. I don’t see anything remotely offensive about this…I think The Mom Edit has done a great job acknowledging what is happening in the world with respect. Thank you, Shana!

  4. Um did you read Shana’s weekend post? She’s obviously thought about this A LOT. I have zero problems with this post. If you can’t afford to shop right now or don’t have the interest, just move right along. We all have obligations, and one of Shana’s is to the brands she partners with. What’s the big deal??

  5. I find the negative comments offensive and unnecessary. Shana took a poll about what we were looking for from the site. She took into account all of the answers, and some people look forward to the escapism. Keeping in mind that you rarely get in trouble for saying nothing, let’s keep the negativity to yourselves.
