For my money, 12South is better than any big retail outlet if you want to do some shopping without wasting a whole day in a mall. Check out denim goods at Emerson Grace, try on sparkly things at Judith Bright handmade jewelry, and pop into White's Mercantile for a modern-day general store experience. The area is also home to Reese Witherspoon’s preppy, pretty, and affordable clothing store, Draper James, as well as Imogene + Willie custom denim. Bonus: This area also has a great dining scene, so hit up Josephine, Epice, Urban Grub, or Frothy Monkey between shops.
