The Voice of WIC

Over-The-Knee Boot Round Up September 29, 2009

Filed under: Fashion — NYU WIC @ 10:20 pm

By Alix Turoff

Some may say leather is my middle name. My father once commented that the only thing I need is a leather bag to go over my head and my look would be complete. I romp around Washington Square park in my leather motorcycle jacket, I hit the town in strapless leather dresses and I walk the stairs to the tents of Bryant Park Fashion week in Jeffrey Campbell’s Opening Ceremony inspired leather cut-out wedges.

With the strange not-quite-summer but definitely not fall weather, I’ve had a dilemma getting dressed in the morning. I’m not ready to put away the Kain tanktops or breezy summer dresses but I can’t wait to start working some of this fall’s trends. So, I came up with an alternative: I would pair my newly purchased over-the-knee boots (Wanted’s Babel Black $99- A steal when compared with similar styles) with all the summer clothes that I’m not quite ready to part with.

Okay, so I “die’ over Taylor’s Stella McCartney thigh-highs that she pairs with everything on the Rachel Zoe Report but let’s be honest, an unpaid intern can’t really afford a pair of $1500 boots so instead I did what I do best: bargain hunted.

Here are some of my favorite picks to fit every budget:
STEAL: Babel in Black – $99

Jimmy Choo - $1,195
SPLURGE: Jimmy Choo – $1,195

Verbana - $35
STEAL: Verbana – $35

SPLURGE: Chloe - $1,295
SPLURGE: Chloe – $1,295

STEAL: Furge - $33
STEAL: Furge – $33

SPLURGE: Stella McCartney - 41,385
SPLURGE: Stella McCartney – $1,385


Successful Deloitte Panel! September 24, 2009

Filed under: WIC Events — tiffsiu @ 11:05 pm

On Monday September 21, Women in Communication co-hosted the Deloitte Women in Consulting Panel with Undergraduate Stern Women in Business and Phi Chi Theta. We had a wonderful turn-out and learned a lot about the world of consulting!

Deloitte Consulting is broken up into 3 practices: Strategy & Operations, Technology, and Human Capital. The Strategy & Operations practice solves the companies core strategical business problems. The technology practice deals with companies functional and technical technology problems relating to it’s company processes. The Human Capital practice deal with the people issues within and outside a company.

One big takeaway from the panel was Deloitte’s investment into it’s employees. Through WIN, it’s Women Initiative, Deloitte strives to provide women with every opportunity to advance through its company, this can be done with programs like “dialing down” or taking time off for children or family.

Like to travel? Consulting at Deloitte will take you all over the nation and world. There are many opportunities to advance by taking assignments outside of New York, but if you’re wary of travel, consulting might not be the career for you.

Deloitte consulting takes students from a variety of backgrounds, you don’t have to be in the business school to apply!
