This local institution is beloved for its warm, relaxed atmosphere and diverse array of clothes and accessories. "I think fashion can sometimes be intimidating," says owner Melissa Murdock, who began her career at Sandpiper right out of college and bought the business in 1989. So she has created shops that are physically welcoming: The Vinings flagship (pictured above) features walls painted aqua and tangerine and an incredibly cozy couch right in the middle of the store. The racks contain a clever mix of stunning high-end splurges, on-trend seasonal styles, and brilliant, wear-them-forever essentials from favorite lines like Rebecca Taylor, Rory Beca, Ella Moss, and Splendid. 4300 Paces Ferry Rd., 770-433-2989, shopsandpiper.com

Ragged, unfinished edges give this elegant, sparkling top a slightly downtown edge. $388, shopsandpiper.com

Everyday jeans cut like tailored trousers, with a flattering just-high-enough waist and a dressed-up cuffed hem. $248, shopsandpiper.com

The ultimate ladylike accessory: a refined wrap in a soft periwinkle hue. $88, shopsandpiper.com

Metallic snakeskin bangles add a heady, luxurious flourish to a simple ensemble. $98 each, shopsandpiper.com
