AUSTIN, TEXAS

VIRTUAL SHOPPING GUIDE:

Austin often gets credit for being Texas's coolest town—and for good reason, since its indie music and art scenes draw a steady stream of both permanent residents and creative thrill-seekers. Throw in some world-class BBQ, and you've got a winning proposition. In honor of SXSW, we put Fathom Magazine's CRYSTAL MEERS on the task of rounding up Austin's best boutiques, which you can shop from anywhere—even if you're not with the band, or the head of a hot tech start-up.
