Maybe it's because I'm half Jewish, but I do believe that my second favorite thing about Christmas is the sales. And, when I came across Intermix's sale, I started frothing at the mouth a little. Intermix, after all, is site that is even less apt to give out coupon codes than Shopbop. And its selection of designer wares is almost as diverse as the celebs who shop it. So, after you've gotten an array of Christmas socks from your favorite senile Aunt and broken up a rum and eggnog fueled fight over who carves the turkey, treat yourself to some discounted loveliness from Intermix.
Here are a few of my favs:
Monica Vinader smoky quartz ring (originally $245, now $79). Cocktail rings are absolutely necessary for this coming New Year's Eve, and this gorgeous jewel is both deeply discounted and highly stylish.
Prive Crucial booties (originally $275, now $89). Sienna Miller began the bootie craze and it seems like every "it" girl has followed. So, be warned, without a pair in your wardrobe you will lose your fashionista certification. Wear them with a LBD and textured opaque tights to be impossibly chic.
And, of course, booties also look wonderful with skinny denim. You can pick up Helmut Lang's gray or black pair (originally $255, now $159) and put them in the back of the closet until those extra holiday pounds disappear. (Or, if you're like me, put them in the back of the closet and then sell them on Ebay once you realize that those holiday pounds have now declared your hips to be their permanent residence.)
Laila Azhar's suspender jumper (was $345, now $139) capitalizes on the hot masculinized frock trend. It's supremely ladylike and, depending on how you choose to style it, will fit in everywhere from the office to a holiday party.
