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, YASSSS!). 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? Is she a student? What kind of job does she have?

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. This month’s haute babe is Ashley Kuczenski!  Ashley is a fellow SOCAL babe that lives in Los Angeles. She is a gorgeous redhead that just tied the knot and works in fashion and event planning. Check out her interview and get to know her a little bit!

Name: Ashley Kuczenski
Age: 33
Location: Los Angeles
Occupation: I’m a managing event coordinator for a luxury fashion jewelry brand. I’m also a former fashion and entertainment journalist, and I keep very busy with freelance work in writing and social media marketing.
Instagram handle: @ashley_kuczenski
Perfect coffee order: iced soy latte
Go to drink at happy hour: champagne - I believe there’s always something to celebrate!
Favorite brand: I love just about everything Alice McCall does; her feminine, retro, playful looks couldn’t be a better fit for my style!
Dream Vacay: Anything that both is culturally rich and has beautiful tropical scenery. Bali and the Caribbean are at the top of my list.
Favorite fashion trend: I’m obsessed with thigh high boots paired with miniskirts right now! And I love that the mod look in general is in style at the moment - I’m stocking up!
Trend you would NEVER try: Athleisure. Or delicate jewelry. I’ve accepted that I’m just not a casual or understated person.
Favorite Haute2Wear Item you have: The Out of Hiss World Snake Print Pinafore is adorable!
Haute2Wear piece on your wishlist: I’m eyeing the Rebel Yell Red Velvet Bell Bottoms - so 70s and fun, and I love the color for Fall!
Now, let’s get a little bit more personal…
Describe yourself in 5 words:
1. Organized
2. Creative
3. Unique
4. Romantic
5. Overthinker
What is your ideal job and why? I’d love to transition into wedding planning one day. I think it would be so beautiful and meaningful to be a part of putting together such an important day in people’s lives!
Who is your role model? I’ve been a huge fan of Marianne Faithfull since reading her autobiography a few years ago. I really admire her toughness and how she managed to turn her life around (not to mention her musical talent, perennial coolness, and great style!).
If you could change anything in the fashion industry, what would it be? I’ve never liked that the fashion industry places perhaps too much weight on who you know over what you know.
What impact would you like to make in the world? I’d like for people to feel they are better or happier for having known me.
