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. This month’s haute babe is Angela Yanez! Pebbles is one of our SOCAL babes that we've had the pleasure of meeting through the blogger community in Southern California. She lives in Coachella and is one of the most kind hearted and giving people we've had the pleasure of coming across as a company. Aside from being a happy mom of two and wife, she is the regional leader for the SOCAL Blogger Babes in Palm Springs. Her selflessness inspires us beyond words and we are proud to have her a customer, friend and now as our Haute Babe Of The Month!

Describe yourself in 5 words:
What is your ideal job and why? I have always wanted to work in the fashion industry as a buyer for a major brand. Also, to design and produce quality clothing for my own brand.
Who is your role model? My role model is my mother who constantly encourages me to go after my dreams.
If you could change anything in the fashion industry, what would it be? I would take away all the stigmas with beauty and fashion associating with the perfect body. No body is perfect, but we are all perfect in our own way. It is important to be comfortable in your own shoes and display your style with confidence.
What impact would you like to make in the world? I would love to be able to say my words have helped someone, even if it is only one person, I will have felt a sense of purpose. I truly believe it is important to spread kindness any way we can in order to create a more perfect world.
"Go confidently in the direction of your dreams. Live the life you have imagined." -Henry David Thoreau
