One of the worst parts about owning an online store is that you only meet your customers on paper. For the most part, the customers order online and you never hear back from them again (until they make another order). Whenever I see the sales orders, I ask myself, “Who is this babe? Her style seems awesome, but what is she planning to do with her new outfit?” Is she going out to girl’s night? Does she have a hot date? Is this a “revenge on her ex boyfriend” outfit?
You get the idea.
This is how I got the idea to create the Haute Babe Of The Month program. All of our customers are special, and I believe that they all have their personal story to tell. Because of this, we will be featuring a customer each month. Our first haute babe of the month is Tatum Gilkey. Tatum is a Kansas original who is now a SOCAL resident with her own blog. Her Sassy Blonde Blog includes posts about fashion, lifestyle, beauty, and travel.
I’ll let her tell you guys a little bit about herself.
