I've lived in Atlanta my entire life, and I'm not a huge fan of the shopping here. But here are some of my picks:

- Drew Lewis, Midtown. Probably the best boutique in Atlanta. They carry Alexander Wang, Sea New York, Ben Sherman (mens), Band of Outsiders (mens), A.P.C., and so much more.
- Jeffrey Atlanta, Phipps. Best collection of designer footwear in Atlanta. I've seen Dries van Noten & Margiela here.
- Little Five Points. Great for vintage & off the wall items. There's also a great graphic T-shirt store here where they screen the design of your choice (you get it from a book of designs) while you wait.
- Bill Hallman, N. Highland. Great for party dresses and cute little tops.
- K-la, Atlantic Station. They have a lot of party dresses under $100 and also carry Nu-Bra.

As to the other stuff that's been mentioned, I would skip Barney's Co-Op. It's NOTHING compared to the ones in SF or NYC. They just carry a lot of Diane von Furstenburg/Marc Jacobs. Blue Genes is good if you're looking for denim, but the vibe is VERY L.A. Don't bother going there unless you're interested in looking like the girls on "The Hills."

^ Thank you both! Unfortunatly I am already home, but I did check out little 5 points, and found a great (mostly) mens store that carried McQ, Yoko Deveroux, Nice Collection, Umbro by KJ, etc. Will hopefully visit again soon!

Lenox Square is so ghetto. Neiman's should really revamp that store or better yet close it down and move it to Phipps.

Kaleidoscope can be described as a shop with lots of dresses appropriate for the (former) sorority girl. Decatur is an interesting area if you're nostalgic for the 70s.

is H&M there really as bad as some of the things i've read about? apparently they haven't much variety in the men's. and i've been to the two stores in boston and i quite liked those because they did have more option.

but i was going to head up there in the next week for that reason alone really as it's the only store i've seen cheap that has decent stuff. and it's much closer to me.

I just moved to Atlanta from the burbs and was wondering where in the world is the vintage shopping. I mean actual vintage, as in I'll-find-the-good-stuff-myself-for-cheap, not consignment where they mark it up 200%? And it doesn't necessarily have to be "designer" fashions either, just unique.
