Welcome to Racked's Shopping Cart Comparisons, a column that investigates how far a budget will stretch at three different stores on any given week. In light of the summer sales still going strong this week, this post takes a look at what you can get at two online only favorites, ASOS and My Wardrobe, vs. Intermix. The stores have a couple things in common: First, they each have a decent range of work wear and casual wear, which we kept in mind while putting outfits together. And second, they each have phenomenal sales. We're talking 10% off already reduced prices at ASOS and a laughable extra 40% off at Intermix and My Wardrobe. Here's what we put together on a budget of $270.
ASOS total: $266.12
