The minute Atlanta native Katharine Kidd left ATL for LAX, we were S-A-D. At last, the fancy designer opens her second eponymous store in the homeland. The boudoiresque boutique (hardwoods, chandelier, velvety settee, fresh flowers) houses elegant sequin and lace dresses, silky blouses in bright colors and luxe grays, and one to-die-for black jumper with a lace overlay. Adored by Hollywood starlets, her line is inspired by the South (where women still wear pearls to dinner). Peruse party frocks, accessorize with hard-to-find jewelry lines (Flutter by Jill Golden, Shourouk, Dannijo), and get your hands on stunning clutches by Amanda Pearl and Kotur. Sneak a peek at (and preorder) the spring 2013 collection and her more affordable line (debuting fall 2013), and meet the designer during opening weekend. Leave suited to a T. Katharine Kidd, 200 Peachtree Hills Avenue Northeast, suite b, Buckhead (404-816-2253). Opens Friday. Kidd will be in the store Friday and Saturday, 1 to 5 p.m. Photo: Courtesy of Katharine Kidd If you love New York like we love New York (and New Jersey, and the whole East Coast), please consider donating to redcross.org.
