Here is one of the highly decorated attention-attracting roadside stores of South Congress, Electric Ladyland/ Lucy in Disguise with Diamonds, the vintage clothing store recommended by Frommer's
. I love the tradition of the outrageously fancy store front. A lot of their clothes can be hired as well as bought, but some have surprisingly high prices for purchase, which I imagine reflects their popularity as hire costumes. Better make a Princess Fiona dress yourself than pay two years' worth of hiring fees. (Just call me a business analyst).
