Now firmly planted in my mid-twenties, I waver on my principles less and follow my heart first. I never cared for politics. And I’m not alone. There’s a paradigm-shift happening throughout Generation Z. The price of progress is often growing pains. We want meaning, growth and gratification for our work or, better yet, as our work. Easier said than done… & not everyone’s cup of cappuccino, I guess you could say I’m putting out Margot Tenenbaum Vibes.

From soft frown to faux fur, today’s look is subtly influenced by the morose and melancholy Margot Tenenbaum from 2001 cult-classic The Royal Tenenbaums. This outfit is a fun example of the way I like to mix second-hand vintage alongside newer trends.
- The vintage faux fur jacket is a keepsake from my visit to my boyfriend’s family’s house, when I failed to pack properly for autumn in Los Angeles.
- My pink floral sun dress was a lucky score at a friend’s clothing swap about a year ago (we’re about ready for another clothing swap aren’t we?)
- And lastly my knee-high gladiator sandals are newer, bought online about a year ago.
Margot would have certainly worn a striped dress, not a floral print dress, and it feels a little weird to be pairing it with a fur coat, but you never really know what the weather will be like where you’re headed, now do you?
Speaking of where I’m headed, now is as good a time as any to announce a big transition coming up in my life. On June 1st, I’m moving across the country to Los Angeles with my boyfriend (and my cat) to chase the digital fashion dream.
While I haven’t quite figured out what the next step is for me career-wise, I’ll be investigating any and all opportunities that cross my path.
