Bumble CEO Wolfe Ties the Knot in Style  0

As founder and CEO of Bumble, currently one of the most popular dating apps, Whitney Wolfe has been helping people find someone to love since the company got its start in 2014. On September 2, she made her own love connection by tying the knot with her beau of two years, Texas oil heir Michael Herd. And this was no modest affair, as the couple exchanged vows in a luxurious ceremony set on Italy’s beautiful Amalfi Coast.

The wedding was held at the Villa Treville in Positano, a very scenic and charming village along the coast that is known as a popular holiday destination. Set along a seaside cliff, Villa Treville’s amazing views of the picturesque Italian village and the Salerno Gulf of the Tyrrhenian Sea was the perfect spot for the couple’s special day. Lit up with candles to create just the right atmosphere, the outdoor wedding used the sea as a stunning backdrop to ceremony.

Wolfe wore a breathtaking white lace form-fitting gown made by Oscar de la Renta, which was accompanied by a gorgeous white lace train. The lace patterns were exquisitely stitched to provide a simple, yet very elegant look. The bride looked every bit the part of a fairy tale princess.

The reception was held outside in a lemon tree orchard. The trees and lit candles provided an amazing ambiance, as guests dined on tables set with gold-rimmed plates, pink napkins, and gold flatware. The single-tier wedding cake was topped with lots of fresh strawberries and other delicious fruit.

Wolfe is widely known as one of the most successful young entrepreneurs in the world. Since graduating from Southern Methodist University, she has been involved in many successful startups. Most of her success can be attributed to Bumble, which she founded in 2014 as the first dating app geared towards women. Bumble gives women looking for companions control over initiating conversation. Before Bumble, women had become tired of being harassed by suitors on other dating apps. Bumble gives women the power.

One of the more popular features of Bumble is its Bumble BFF mode, which allows women to filter out those looking for romantic relationships and instead reveals those looking for friendship. This feature is great for helping women in new areas find friends who are similar quickly. Coming in Fall 2017, Wolfe is unveiling Bumble Bizz, which is an extension designed to help women network with other female professionals. The idea is for women to connect with other women in their industry and perhaps seek out or become mentors.

Why Kate Hudson’s Fabletics Has Amazon on the Run  0

While putting Amazon on the run might not be the correct term, there is one company that is giving Amazon a real run for the money as of late. To better understand how big of an accomplishment this can be, look at how Amazon is doing as far as sales in the online apparel market. They are destroying all the competition, and raking in over 20 percent of all the sales in this very crowded market. That does not seem to have concerned Kate Hudson’s Fabletics because they have been gaining ground these last few years and pulling in over $250 million in sales of workout apparel in the same space.

 

Listen very closely to how Hudson talks about her athleisure brand, it is more than just trying to promote the fact she is a celebrity, the merchandise is high-quality, or the prices are low. To hear Hudson, she is talking more about her unique membership program and the reverse showrooming sales practice instead. Drive over to the mall and look at how sales are taking place inside the Fabletics retail store. Here you will discover this in not your average shopping experience. There are women here trying on all the new active-wear, women taking the Fabletics lifestyle quiz, and plenty of women doing nothing more than window shopping.

 

Now where the real money begins to change hands is at the Fabletics e-commerce store. Part of the incredible perks of having a membership is that every piece of active-wear that you try on in the mall, from leggings, tank tops, to yoga pants, all gets transferred to your online profile for you to consider buying at a later time. The advantage of shopping online is that you will discover the inventory is much more diverse. So now that you have eliminated the size concern from the equation, you can simply shop and shop and shop.

 

Additional perks of the Kate Hudson’s Fabletics include discounts on all workout apparel, free shipping for online orders, and even your very own personal shopping assistant who uses those quiz answers to select items you may want to purchase down the road. Amazon should be paying very close attention to the success of Kate Hudson’s Fabletics because if they think this is just another company that will disappear, they are going to find themselves chasing a new top dog in no time at all now.
