Beehive Co-op

Made up of dozens of mini boutiques, this spot is loaded with chic finds, from silk-screened tees by Gypsies Tramps & Thieves to simple vases from Tania Julian.
1831A Peachtree Rd. NE, 404-351-1166

Drew Lewis

Every inch of this just-opened bilevel emporium has been carefully considered, from the high-wattage silver wallpaper in the dressing rooms to the rococo armchairs built into the walls that double as shelves. David Gore (a Hugo Boss alum) and Seth Kloss (a former manager at New York's Hudson Hotel) pay equally close attention to selecting the shop's gamine-inspired goods, most of which come from designers you won't see elsewhere in the city: Shipley & Halmos, Alexander Wang, and Vena Cava.
845 Spring St. NW, Unit C, 404-881-5359

Fab'rik

Thoroughly elegant and gigantic, this space is hung with Japanese paper lanterns and packed with lovely, super-feminine dresses.
1114 W. Peachtree St. NW, 404-881-8223; plus other locations

K-la

Owned by three Brazilian siblings, K-la stocks party-worthy pieces from labels like Collective Clothing.
1380 Atlantic Dr. NW, 404-815-7993; plus other locations

The Lucky Exchange

You have to be ready to dig at this thrift-store duo, but those who do will be handsomely rewarded. We turned up a trove of '70s-ish cotton shirtdresses and gowns festooned with oversize floral prints—almost all of which were priced under $30.
212 Ponce De Leon Ave. NE, 404-817-7715; 749 Moreland Ave. SE, 404-622-4848

Luxe Atlanta

Jenn Ripley's relocated and reopened enterprise—in a former livestock barn from the 1890s—is really an outlet masquerading as a boutique. One-of-a-kind pieces at a fraction of their original prices line the racks, where you can find huge names like Zac Posen and Badgley Mischka along with up-and-comers like Luxury Jones. And this fall, Luxe will host an in-store shop from Wardrobe NY, which offers worn-only-once costumes from movies like Sex and the City and The Nanny Diaries.
1000 Marietta St. NW, 404-815-7470

Nani Sensorium

Although one might not expect a recently retired NBA player to possess an impeccable eye for women's clothing, Miami Heat veteran Shandon Anderson's new stop in the outdoor-village-esque Atlantic Station mall is almost freakishly spot-on. And the selection isn't predictable, either: There are reliably pretty tops from See by Chloé and Twelfth Street by Cynthia Vincent, but there are also epaulet-adorned shirtdresses by Rag & Bone and zipper-festooned jackets from Daryl K.
264 19th St. NW, 404-446-4081

Shop SCAD

Devoted to work by students, faculty, and alumni of the Savannah College of Art and Design, this spot offers truly world-class wares, from paintings to intricate scrimshaw jewelry.
1600 Peachtree St. NW, 404-253-2769

Star Provisions

This place is famous for its market-style food emporium and well-reviewed restaurants—so it's no surprise that locals tend to forget about the excellent range of home items. Arranged in staggeringly tall vignettes (lifeboat buoys, birdcages, and trees swaddled in cotton are all part of the displays), everything is gorgeous and unique: porcelain plates painted with the birds of Britain, quilts pieced together from saris, and matchboxes blazoned with images of shellfish.
