Addiction

Chicago transplant and former interior designer Nikki Salk buys only what she is dying to wear, which means that shopping at this brand-new spot feels like you're picking through her exceedingly stylish closet. She has great, if slightly idiosyncratic, taste, smartly mixing leopard-print Pollini blouses, electric blue minidresses with rhinestone-studded buttons from Doucette Duvall, and rockerish waxed black Notify jeans all on the same rack.
414 E. Paces Ferry Rd. NE, 678-927-9383

The Blue Corset Co.

A graphic black-and-white palette, art deco–wallpapered fitting rooms, and baroque chairs lend the mood of a dark, hidden boudoir to this just-launched boutique. The emphasis is on high-end lingerie from designers like Marlies Dekkers and Leigh Bantivoglio, all arranged in an agreeably spare fashion.
56 E. Andrews Dr. NW, Ste. 24, 404-898-0420

Broad Street Antique Mall

A tour through this 20,000-square-foot space can eat up an entire day: Particularly good are the jewelry cases, which are loaded with cameos and filigree gold chains.
3550 Broad St., Chamblee, 770-458-6316

Deka

Even though it's officially about workout wear, this octagon-shaped store, owned by Jim Whitlow, a 15-year veteran of Jeffrey Atlanta (he was actually Jeffrey Kalinsky's first hire, in 1990), stocks pieces that almost work better outside of the gym. Adidas by Stella McCartney track jackets, Converse by John Varvatos' line of sequin-studded tanks, Rudolf Dassler for Puma polos, and well-cut black pants from Y-3 are bestsellers.
375 Pharr Rd. NE, 404-869-9600

Entebello

Offering up more than 90 beauty lines, this year-old apothecary fronts a full-service spa. Aside from serious skincare products by Sonya Dakar and Nuxe, Entebello stocks almost-too-pretty-to-use treats, like gorgeous Mor lotions and perfumes packaged in glass vials covered with origami paper.
324 E. Paces Ferry Rd. NE, 404-477-2933

Jeffrey Atlanta

Jeffrey Kalinsky's original location is still as forward-thinking and excellent as it was when it debuted 18 years ago. Lush lines like Dries Van Noten occupy one half of the store, while a peerless shoe department commandeers the rest. Jeffrey wields enough power to score exclusive designs, including Manolo Blahniks in shades not available anywhere else, old-school Sperry Top-Siders molded into patent leather wedges, and Pierre Hardy high-tops.
3500 Peachtree Rd. NE, Ste. A3, 404-237-9000

Lush Life Home & Garden

Part flower store, part curiosity shop, this itsy jam-packed cottage brims with stunning natural objects—geodes that double as bookends, pint-size bonsai trees, and serving bowls carved from onyx. A washed-wood bookshelf, which literally sags under the weight of hundreds of Diptyque candles, takes up an entire wall.
146 E. Andrews Dr. NW, 404-841-9661

Market

Housed in a former grocery, this aptly named store specializes in cheerily hued tops from lines like Ella Moss—plus a nicely curated wall of denim.
2770 Lenox Rd. NE, 404-814-0977

Pieces

Interior decorator Lee Kleinhelter's shop, which takes a deep bow to all things Palm Springs, is arranged into living-room-like, color-coordinated vignettes. She has a knack for refurbishing vintage furniture (there are sleek chests and fan-backed chairs that she's accented with gray cushions) and then finding sophisticated accessories to fill out the space, like Hervé Gambs candles, Hable Construction totes, and throw pillows in intricate ikats.
3234 Roswell Rd. NW, 404-869-2476

Sabot

Hitting a range of prices, this minimalist Buckhead Village shop's selection (handpicked by the owners, a mother-daughter team) includes only a few iterations from each designer. That means each shoe feels like it's special and specific: Fancy gold Loeffler Randall flats sit on the burnished concrete floor next to woven sandals by Coclico.
