Hukk the dress

We love delivering deals straight your inbox, but this one takes the cake! We recently saved this savvy bride $800.00 on her beautiful BHLDN wedding gown.  As every bride-to-be (and bridesmaid) knows, there’s a lot to buy between saying “yes” and “i do”, and an extra $800.00 in savings can go a long way!  What would you do with an extra $800.00?  We have a few ideas!  Click here to see our wedding wish list - you can buy the entire list for under $800.00!

International Women’s Day: Women of Hukkster

As a company founded by two independent women, International Women’s Day is definitely something to celebrate at Hukkster. We’ve taken the time to ask some of the Hukkster Women a few questions about female entrepreneurship and how they are going to celebrate International Women’s Day - check out their answers below!

Erica Bell, Co-Founder
1. Who would you say you look up to most as a female entrepreneur?
My mother, Robbie, and aunt, Bettylynne, both launched and operated successful business in Philadelphia, so growing up I thought entrepreneurship was the norm, not the exception. This background definitely allowed me to confidently take the leap into entrepreneurship - it was less a question of if then when I would follow in their footsteps.
2. What advice would you give to young business women today?
Be a sponge. No task is too small early on in your career. There are so many opportunities to learn, so ask questions and understand the why behind every project you tackle - it will absolutely set you up for success later on in your career. 
3. How are you going to celebrate International Women’s Day?
Katie and I will be at SXSW representing our company as female founders. It’s great to see how rapidly this community is growing and I feel so fortunate to be apart of this new class of female business owners making waves in technology.

Sophia Lauricella, Marking & Operations Associate
1. Who would you say you look up to most as a female entrepreneur?Sara Blakely of Spanx is such a great example of a powerful female entrepreneur. Not only did she create a product, to help solve a problem for women, but she believed in it so much she invested her entire savings in hopes it would succeed. Taking a big risk on something she was so passionate about, paid off and has revolutionized the industry as a result.
2. What advice would you give to young business women today?
Age is nothing but a number! Being young in the professional world, can sometimes be seen as a negative in the work place. What you lack in experience, make up for in creativity, passion and determination. Not only will it earn respect, but allow you to succeed.
3. How are you going to celebrate International Women’s Day?
There’s a great event at Ann Taylor on Saturday! Barbara Bush, and Genevieve Roth from Glamour are hosting a panel discussion at their flagship store on Madison Avenue.

Kelly Wetter, Content Specialist & Internal Operations
1. Who would you say you look up to most as a female entrepreneur?
I would say Julia Hartz who is the Co-Founder & President of Eventbrite. I admire how she runs her company and her partner happens to be her husband! 
2. What advice would you give to young business women today?
Do what you love! Learn what you can and give it your all.
3. How are you going to celebrate International Women’s Day?
Spending time with my mother. I wouldn’t be where am I today without her support.

Patricia Gabel, Senior Marketing Associate
1. Who would you say you look up to most as a female entrepreneur?
Chloe Lonsdale started MiH Jeans and was the first female entrepreneur I worked for - she taught me a lot about the importance of passion. She’s dedicated to her vision, and I admire how MiH has maintained a beautiful authenticity in its branding, messaging and design aesthetic as a result of that!
2. What advice would you give to young business women today?
Make personal connections! You never who can help you better yourself personally and/or professionally either when you meet them or down the road, so don’t burn bridges either!
3. How are you going to celebrate International Women’s Day?
By thanking all the women who have had a positive impact on my career thus far!

Erin O’Neill, Director of Operations
1. Who would you say you look up to most as a female entrepreneur?
All of them! I admire the innovation and perseverance of female entrepreneurs, from the U.S. to the developing world. Years ago I saw a moving documentary called A Powerful Noise about three women, in Bosnia-Herzegovina, Mali and Vietnam ,and how they lead innovative efforts to improve their lives and their communities.
2. What advice would you give to young business women today?
Be confident and speak your mind. You have great ideas - don’t be afraid to share them.
3. How are you going to celebrate International Women’s Day?
By thanking the female mentors in my life, and by spending the day with the amazing young business women of Hukkster!

Marina Chiesa, Operations Assistant
1. Who would you say you look up to most as a female entrepreneur?
Pleasant Rowland, founder of The Pleasant Company (American Girl!). As a kid I loved American Girl dolls, and heard that the company was founded by a woman who wanted to encourage young girls to become interested in history.  I think Ms. Rowland did a great job of building a successful company that encourages young girls to be as independent and free-thinking as the characters she created.
2. What advice would you give to young business women today?
Always push yourself out of your comfort zone.  Look at weaknesses not as deficiencies but rather as opportunities for growth and development!
3. How are you going to celebrate International Women’s Day?
By tuning into a panel discussion with Barbara Bush and Genevieve Roth hosted by Ann Taylor and Glamour magazine onSaturday, March 8th! (www.youtube.com/anntaylorstyle).

Emily Brockway, Technology & Operations Associate
1. Who would you say you look up to most as a female entrepreneur?
Sheryl Sandberg takes the cake. Ever since reading Lean In, I have been particularly intrigued by her career and message to young women. Although she did not begin her career in the startup world and has worked at relatively large tech companies, I find her fearlessness to both take a stand and divert from the “typical” path truly inspiring. 
2. What advice would you give to young business women today?
Do not settle and do not be afraid to take risks. It can be tempting to follow a set, predetermined path to “success,” but it is much more fun to forge your own path and find something that you are passionate about. Definitely read the Holstee Manifesto for some inspiration!
3. How are you going to celebrate International Women’s Day?
I will take some time to thank those special women who have helped me along the way!
