Soft, comfortable, stylish, and affordable workout clothing from Fabletics

The fashion industry can be a difficult industry to be successful in. Currently, twenty percent of the market is controlled by Amazon. When a company manages to be successful without the help or use of Amazon, it is no small feat. Back in 2003, Don Ressler and Adam Goldenberg started Fabletics, with the help of actress, Kate Hudson. The three of them saw that there was a large portion of the country that the workout wear industry was ignoring. There were no companies or brands catering to a trendy, yet affordable budget. With the idea of affordable, stylish, and comfortable workout gear in mind, Fablectics was born.

 

Fablectics works on a monthly subscription model. This model has turned them into a multi-million dollar company, taking on Amazon when it comes to workout apparel. Before a member receives their first outfit, they take a quiz to customize their tastes, so the website learns their individual likes and dislikes. This tailors the outfits to what each customer will love, making shopping much easier, faster, and makes for happy customers. The monthly service makes it easy for busy people to get new outfits without worrying about needing to spend the time to go shopping every month for a new, trendy outfit. Kate Hudson personally approves all the clothing for the company. This tailoring to each member’s needs leads to high membership retention and happy, loyal customers.

 

It also helps them get to know the communities they serve. As they are in the communities, they can learn the styles and trends of that area. This allows them to customize the clothes offered. Thirty to fifty percent of the customers that enter their stores are already members. Another twenty-five percent become members while they are in the store. This helps create an even larger customer base for the company. When the members are in the store, the items they try on also go into their online shopping cart. The customer can then buy in the store or online. For many retailers, they are losing sales when customers come into their physical stores to see items in person, but then go online and find the items cheaper, and purchase them online instead. For Fabletics, it doesn’t matter if they purchase in the stores or online. They simply work hand in hand to give their members the best shopping experience. They use their stores to showcase their clothes and to simply give their customers another option for customer service.

 

The quality of clothing you get from Fabletics can easily be compared to that of much more expensive brands. Their pants are soft, comfortable, and most importantly, thick. No see-through problems with their pants. The outfits you receive are stylish and customized so you are certain to love them. The clothes hold their shape, compression, and don’t fade over time, making them some of the highest quality clothes on the market for an affordable price.

End Citizens United Move to Amend Supreme Court’s Decision of Citizens United

End Citizens United is a PAC or Political Action Committee in the United States that was set up in March 2015. After winning the decision in the Citizens United v. F.E.C in the Supreme Court in 2010, the group has managed to change the campaign finance system. The primary aim of End Citizens United is to bring the control of the United States government back to its citizens and to assert the old American value of limited government along with national security.

The End Citizens United is dedicated to bringing about campaign finance reforms and wants to spend millions of dollars on Democratic candidates in different competitive House and Senate in the country. According to its communications Director, Richard Carbo, the group has already raised about $2 million from small donors and want to reach about $25 million in the entire cycle on endcitizensunited.org. It is their goal to end the constitutional amendment of Citizens United by the Supreme Court which was taken in 2010. The decision gave high power to super PACs and led to the introduction of black money into the politics. Till date, more than 325,000 people have signed their petition to pass a constitutional amendment on the decision.

There are a number of other PACs in the country that focus on finance reforms on political campaigns on endcitizensunited.org, but it is this group that is doing something about it. The group do not believe in mere talks and are backing candidates who are for finance reforms and would stand up against Citizens United. The group is also planning to financially back the candidates through television ads, mailers, and polling. They also wish to raise the issue of black money in politics as it is of national importance on endcitizensunited.org. They prefer to use the grassroots membership to show their political power on the issue of black money and big corporate finances in politics.

End Citizens United was formed by three former fundraising specialists, Greg Berlin, Jake Lipsett and Charles Starnes, who used to work for the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee. They currently are the owner of the consulting firm Mothership Strategies. All three of them are using their fundraising and list building skills to a better cause which in the past had drawn only a few nonprofits. It is their effort that has made people aware of the Supreme Court’s decision and put pressure on the Supreme Court to not take decisions that can make the matter worse.

So far, the group boasts of having received 136,000 donations with an average donation of $14.86. The End Citizens United team is run by a dedicated group of veteran Democratic operatives who want to make the citizens of the country aware of the influence of black money in politics and show them how it can be stopped.
