Hi Tatum! Tell us a bit about yourself!

I’m a twenty-something lifestyle blogger and PR girl navigating her first year in New York City one subway ride and over-priced cocktail at a time. Outside of work, I spend my time and energy on my life and style blog, The Pace, and Instagram, @tatumerinmurray.

What spoke to you about the Chanho Jang Zipper Weave Top you chose to wear?

It was like nothing I have ever seen before! The detail is so eye-catching and beautiful. The details are actually hand laced with real zippers. You can see for yourself here.

 

When did you develop a love of fashion?

I’ve always loved clothes and planning outfits ever since I can remember. I used to spend hours in my closet on Sundays, creating new outfits to wear for the week.

In one word, how would you describe your style?

Confident.

How do you incorporate your own personal style with what you do?

I think what I wear has a huge effect on my mood and attitude, so I incorporate my style based on what I want to feel. If I want to feel strong and confident at work, I make sure my style matches that vibe. With the Chanho Jang Zipper Weave Top, the zipper detail added more edge for me than the normal box top.

Describe your morning routine. At 9 am each day, you are….

I’m a total morning person and wake up early every day to go to the gym. By 9 am, I’m sitting at my desk, drinking coffee and tackling my to-do list for the day.

 

A morning girl! Describe your evenings…

Evenings are either spent adventuring around the city with friends, at an event or cuddling in bed with Netflix.

Your biggest regrettable style phase:

My side-bangs “alternative” phase in middle school…not cute.

On Sunday, we’ll find you wearing:

Black jeans, boots, and a cozy sweater a.k.a. my standard brunch uniform.

What is your go-to power outfit?

Head-to-toe black and heels.

What’s the one garment you’ll never give away?

My black parka because I can’t imagine a New York winter without it.

 

What does fashion mean to you?

To me, fashion is inspiration, creativity, and expression. It allows me to bring excitement and change into what otherwise might just be a typical day or standard routine.  

What excites you about Nineteenth Amendment?

I love the incredible designers that I have discovered through Nineteenth Amendment. Truly the best of the best!
