Nordstrom brand does an opaque tight in a heathered color that is charcoal leaning navy. Ditto thinking having a years stale part time MBA is going to fix your worries about taking time out from work to raise children. Reviews of this Product.
This beautiful navy suit is extremely well made. Fabric is good weight and not only looks good, but will hold up. I'm very pleased with the look, and the quality.
This was purchased initially for a Titanic-themed evening, with future s outings in the future. Anyone who saw it was incredibly impressed and asked where I bought the outfit! It looked very impressive and beautifully detailed. And the sizing was very very generous. The fabric has a nice weight and is well put together. My only gripe would be that it would be nice to mix and match sizes, as while the skirt was a touch large, the jacket was absolutely swimming on me and it will be a shame to have to alter it.
All in all, if you're careful about the sizes, then I'd happily recommend it. And the processing and delivery was exceptionally fast. This dress has a very good quality and the colour is great.
It goes perfectly with the Darlington Blouse. Customer Reviews of our Store. I ordered a blouse which turned out to be too small. I emailed you and was allowed to order a replacement which arrived in time to wear it with my skirt to an event.
I am a Boston-based costume designer and often purchase costume pieces from you guys. Mary CA, United States. Great delivery and refund practices when things don't work out.
Charlee PA, United States. Was a smashing success! I expected my order to arrive in 2 weeks, based on the estimate given when I placed the order My only suggestion to Historical Emporium is to put some colored background behind your white shirts etc, I would have got a few more things, but the white shirts on white background made it very difficult to see.
Keep up the great work! I was pleased with the prompt delivery. When I realized the vest was too large, I immediately returned it for exchange for the proper size. Processing the exchange was fairly quick and easy. My only concern was that the only communication I had about the exchange was notice that the replacement had been shipped. A couple of times a month. These women were often hugely unprepared to support their families when their husbands divorced them.
One relative basically lost custody of her 6 children because she had no way to support them, and her husband threatened to quit work and never send her a cent if she took the kids I have no idea if that would have actually held up in court, but times were different then.
Ditto thinking having a years stale part time MBA is going to fix your worries about taking time out from work to raise children. It involves figuring out where you want to go, and doing your research to know how to get there. It does not involve a detailed multi year plan based off the idea that at some point you might want to take a step back from your career.
Harvard wanted them to launch careers and establish a track record before they stepped off their career paths for awhile to raise families, which is very common among women MBAs. If OP knows she wants kids, knows that she will eventually want to go back to work after being a SAHM, and MBA might help her fast track her career and help her get there. All fair points to consider. Might not be available online. I think the idea was to help women establish a career track record before stepping back for family obligations, with the hope that the women will be reenter the workforce and use their MBAs.
The program was in response to the many MBA women dropping out of the workforce after having a family. Harvard has seen a significant uptick in applications from women and in women MBA candidates. My mom is a Harvard MBA from the 80s and says the improvements the school has made since her time there and mine are extraordinary. All this being said, the costs to get a full time MBA are astronomical.
And as posters below have noted, outside of maybe the top 20 programs maybe even 10 , the value of a particular school is negligible. I imagine it will be hard if your fiance also has school debt to get by on one income, and especially to support a family on one income with school loans, considering the average debt level of many MBA grads.
I think Harvard would probably more effective in helping women on and off ramp their careers if they recruited and admitted women trying to re-enter the workforce. There are many business careers that women who are still in their biologically optimal family building time can progress in without hitting the MBA ceiling. Getting this valuable work experience, then doing the SAHM track, then being able to get that Harvard MBA would make on ramping a lot easier than having a stale degree and stale work experience.
My cynical side thinks this is a good marketing technique to try to separate younger women from their money before they have the work experience to really leverage an MBA to its fullest. Links awaiting moderation, but here is another one mentioning the younger female MBA admissions trend:. I think I actually agree with you, but from another angle. So, considering family- absolutely.
And grad school is a huge investment to make when you still have a lot of growing up to do. How can you be sure you will be married within a couple of years and then pregnant shortly thereafter? Part-time MBAs can take up to 4yrs to complete, esp if you work full-time. And then polishing up your resume, applications, essays, references, etc. Grad school applications take time and preparation if you want to get into a decent program.
Another factor is that MBA programs usually want you to be in the workforce at least yrs. IMO, there are a lot of factors to consider, but potential stay at home motherhood several years down the line is at the bottom of the list for the task at hand. My boyfriend and I had been together for over two years with very serious plans for marriage and kids.
He broke up with me in January, only days after saying he hoped we could be married by that time next year. Thank you to those who have responded.
A few few clarifications: I took the GMAT and scored a Well, then why bother with MBA, right? But realistically thinking, I cannot see myself doing this for the rest of my life. So maybe my real question is whether I should stick it out for a decade and then get out. My SO made the choice to try to get the MBA done part-time before we have kids, but neither of us plans to stop working full time. We both prioritize work-life balance in our choice of full-time jobs, however.
The high-powered finance vs. SAHM seems to me like very black and white thinking. You might not pursue your education and career because you might get married and you might have children?
What year is this — ? On behalf of my mother born , undergrad , Ph. This is uncalled for. It means that as a female we have the right to choose to work and raise a family; just work and have no children; stay at home and raise children; or any combination of the above. Every person has different priorities and it does nothing to advance women to cut down people who choose a different lifestyle than you do.
Now, I am not saying that the OP should unreservedly go to MBA school — other posters have made very good points about cost, interest, plans, etc. Everyone I know who has found their MBA valuable has either 1 had their employer pay for it 2 went to a mind-bogglingly awesome school who placed them with a powerhouse or 3 did it later in life after they had other business experience.
First, good job on your GMAT score. Second, good job on thinking the choice through. Going to school does not always equal the right thing. Sometimes it really seems like so many employers these days create all MBAs equal, save for those at the top 5 schools ie, a Univ.
MBA at some companies. So, if all your employer is looking for is a check in the MBA box, perhaps you could see what cheaper options might be available. I have no idea what the cost of an MBA actually is. If so, will you be able to pay off those loans while taking a few years out of the workforce as a SAHM? Other schools have higher average debt levels and OP should expect costs to rise somewhat between now and when she actually attends.
I actively encouraged my SO not to go until he had a clear vision of what he wanted to be when he grew up. Now that he does, he knows which schools line up best with his goals, and what steps he needed to take in his career to get there in addition to an MBA. From this discussion you now know not to frame it: I think you also want to have an honest and full discussion with your future partner about these issues. In my experience men have difficulty internalizing the realities of a biological clock and how it might affect their lives.
So, congrats on being a planner and getting a great GMAT score. I applaud the fact that you are thinking about things. I have a couple of random thoughts…. Also, if you are really young, and you want to manage in the near future, remember that you will be competing with older job candidates both in-school and in the real-world who can point to actual management experience. Employers often can tell the difference. It is a tasty buffet of a million choices while you are there many of which are fascinating , but my classmates that had the best internships and the best jobs and are now the happiest!
They knew what they wanted out of b-school and used it exactly for its purpose. B-school is awesome and distracting and much harder if you are wide-eyed and trying to figure it out I know—I was the latter! Going now, working for a few years and stopping out makes that temporary bump fade.
When I wanted to go to school, I had three years of work experience. Turned out that those comments were spot on, and I gained a lot more perspective over the next few years, purely from living life…honest. Part of that was hanging out with the significantly older peer group in b-school, but it also had to do with love, death, travel, etc…. Remember that those same people might be hiring you or deciding whether to pick you for their team.
So plan your job search accordingly. That is to say, if you want an MBA and think you want one, no matter what…. But if there is any chance that you want to see where life takes you…see where life takes you. Your GMAT score will be good for 5 years! So…you may want to be patience with yourself and see where life and work take you, if only for a year or two.
Black is always my go to color for interviews — it just feels more formal to me — but I have an AT wool navy suit and like it. When I wear it as a pants suit, I wear navy, patent, croc heels in navy or dark purple I am all for patent, during any season. I liked the J. Crew wool gabardine suit except that the pants never quite worked for my small-waisted, big-hipped, big-butted frame and I have an Ann Taylor navy suit from last fall that has more of a sailor-y vibe to the jacket, and a more textured weave to the fabric.
I wore a navy suit to my last interview, with a white blouse and red necklace. One of my favorite combinations. It can go so well with peridot jewelry. Update to all the thoughtful commenters who responded to my midsize v.
I follow the same rules as the men when it comes to suit dressing, and that means no black suits. Black suits are for funerals.
And maybe a black-tie optional affair for the men at least. I should definitely alert my boss and colleagues! I think this is regional and perhaps generational. Navy was always my go-to suit, more formal than black. I do not think that any of my law partners all male, small town, deep south ever have worn a black suit, except perhaps to funerals. There was an assistant crminal U. Dark charcoal gray or navy is their usual court attire. In my experience, navy suits are easy to find.
Men have the excuse of not having many options on color! I did buy a pair of beautiful navy shoes this weekend at Ann Taylor though marked down to 29 from We had a male candidate for an entry-level position who wore a dark charcoal suit, neutral shirt and tie, black dress shoes and white athletic socks. That said, I bought a navy blue pinstripe blazer on sale a year ago- but no matching bottom I have separate navy pinstripe pants and skirt that do not match.
If anyone has suggestions as to what to do, I would love some help! When I was in law school, I bought a navy suit for interviewing and other professional purposes, and I found it really, really hard to work with for many of the reasons people have stated. I swore off navy for years as a result. Of course now I have a bunch of shells in jewel tones, I have shoes in nude, snakeskin, and deep purplish-burgundy that I can use along with black and various shades of brown, based on the top worn and level of conservativism I need in the outfit.
If your professional wardrobe is limited, you will be frustrated that you bought a navy suit. Black shoes and a black handbag are always going to work, regardless of what shirt you where.
FYI, I just bought the Tahari suit, and it arrived today it was super fast shipping, like I swear it shipped before I pressed checkout. The arms are waaaaay too short. I stumbled upon this site looking for advise on buying a suit for a girlfriend of mine who is a lawyer. I would like to buy her a suit as a gift, something she would never buy for herself because of the expense.
I am looking for something practical that will always be in fashion in the court room Not to hard I am guessing and is worth the expense, another words nicely tailored and looks great.
I have a carpentry business and wear jeans and a t shirt to work but I know what the difference a nicely tailored suit makes. I have one Brookes Brothers suit for weddings and funerals, Lol. I have been looking at the Brookes Brothers one and two button suit jackets in navy and a pencil skirt.
I think I am on the right track, I am also thinking of shoes to match. Any help will be greatly appreciated! Of course I am only guessing on the weight! The only stores near us are Talbots, Nordstroms and Brookes Brothers.
However, I have introduced a few angles that allow my outfits to be less intimidating — introducing pops of colour, bold jewellery, red lips, and bright shirts in the otherwise stern suit, creating a little funk in corporate gear! I actually went to a fashion consultant when I was interviewing for my new job last year.
Honestly, I hated my business attire. I looked ugly I used the term frumpy in most of what I wore. The funny thing is, it was mostly Navy suits I had!! There was a pants suit that was navy…the only navy suit I ever really liked on myself.
I would recommend her to anyone else that is going for an executive position. She does a drawing for a free fashion consult every month too.
