Kandi Burruss Opens ‘TAGS’ Boutique in Atlanta


Housewives of Atlanta star, Kandi Burruss, has opened TAGS boutique in her hometown of Atlanta. The singer-songwriter whose ex-fiancé was tragically murdered a few weeks back, is of course still mourning his death, but is showing the world that she hasn’t lost it. She’s slowly getting back to work, and excited to have finally opened her boutique.

I also just recently opened my own online boutique, so to see that Kandi is doing the same is just amazing! I’d love to be where she is one day, opening the doors to my boutique’s physical location. Anywho, the pics of the store and it’s merchandise look great, and I especially love the view from the outside. I wish Kandi and her partner (who she’s photo’d with) much success and luck with this venture!

“I didn’t want it to hurt our friendship,” said Peaches Chin who met Burruss years ago when she owned several Atlanta boutiques. “It really weighed on me. I had to make sure we were on the same page.”

This week, Tags, is open for business in Smyrna’s West Village and not only are Burruss and Chin still friends, but the project has given Burruss a much needed diversion just weeks after the death of her former fiancé, A.J. Jewell. “I’m still in shock,” said Burruss, who has already received supportive letters from fans at the store (please, don’t send them there). “I like to keep busy with stuff like this.”

The concept for the store, they decided, would be “luxury for less” with most items under $100. Chin and Burruss source apparel and accessories for men and women at trade shows in Las Vegas and New York, paying more attention to price point than brand names.

Customers will find trendy items such as an ivory coat with elbow length sleeves by Love Stitch for $70. An eclectic mix of party and daytime dresses, including a bustier dress in an abstract print and a zippered bubble skirt mini dress, which average about $55 to $65. Acid wash and colored skinny jeans from Celebrity Pink are $59. Trendy T-shirts for men are about $25, and denim for guys is in the $130 range. There is also a broad selection of on trend jackets and button-down shirts for men.

    Hi, Kandi. How are you doing girl? First I want to say I’m sorry for your loss and I feel your pain cuz I too had lost someone who was quite dear to me. She was my cousin and she was murdered by a jealous ex-boyfriend and business partner. I’m always keeping you and yours in my prayers and also I want to say thank you for adding flavor to the show. Now I can say that I don’t mind watching it. Anyway, I was wondering if the pants that the lady is wearing here online is also sold at the store cuz I simply love the style/print on it! I love fashion and I love it even more when no one else associated with me owns it! Hope to hear you soon. and again God Bless you and yours!

    I visited Atlanta for the First time last year and I loved the fact that there’s so many independant artist with boutiques and loads of fashion .when I was there lots of ppl went crazy for my signature leather earrings. I hope to visit the store on my next trip.. also I would like to know if you sell handmade jewelry . I am a jewelry designer who wishes everyone should see my God given gifts , however sometimes it can be difficult for a single mom of 3 finding a sitter for fashion events .I can be reached @kaluaa on twitter or BBM 30b2782F
