Meet Miss Larroudé, Margot Lee
Anyone who meets her would agree that they want more Margot Lee in their lives. When she’s not busy hosting the Working Title Podcast, the inspiring content creator and founder of No Particular Order is busy creating gorgeous images. We asked Margot to share the IG accounts she turns to for inspo, her Winter saviors, and where she finds her favorite drink in NYC.
Where do you live?
Greenwich Village, Manhattan
What is your job title?
Founder of No Particular Order/ Content Creator
Favorite Larroude shoe for the winter season?
I’ve worn The Ines Pump at least once a week this season—the heel height is perfect for traipsing around the city.
What excites you about the winter season?
Soup—specifically homemade avgolemono (the Greek’s perfect lemony, creamy take on chicken soup).
Favorite restaurant/dish in your city?
It has to be The Knickerbocker on University Ave. Between the oak walls, seasoned staff, and the clear set of “regulars” (the hosts have memorized which cane belongs to who), it feels like a restaurant for true New Yorkers. As for my favorite dish, I’m always happy with their chicken and pair it with their signature $13 sidecar martinis.
IG Account(s) you follow for Inspo:
I’ve been loving following @picnicforlunch for dreamy interiors. I wish I had more of an innate vision for decor instead of having to lug 4 massive rugs in my space before landing on the right one, so this account gives me a few more ideas and points of reference. Many of their posts have landed in my “future home” saved folder on Instagram.
What inspires you?
I’m a simple girl! Pinterest and other women’s outfits on the streets of New York City.
How did you get your start?
I hope I am still “at” my start! I find myself looking for older role models as I've gotten to my mid-twenties, and it’s inspired me to trust that this period will make for a good career origin story as I get to my 40s and 50s.
Piece of advice for your younger self / One thing you wish you knew when you were first starting out?
Invest time in hobbies. Those will be the things that make you interesting (and get you a job) in your 20s.
What does a typical day at work look like?
My work day tends to revolve around what time of day my apartment gets sunlight, which is usually around midday for a window of about 30 minutes (it’s Manhattan, I’ll take what I can get), so I’ll usually work from home until then, shoot content in the natural light, and then head to my coworking space to work on editing, customer service requests, and replying to emails. After that, I’ll go for a tech-free walk around the city and end the night with dinner at home or a girlfriend’s apartment.
What are some of the biggest challenges you face in your industry?
Comparison runs rampant in the “influencer” space, but I think the past year, I have learned to shed that bad habit a bit more. Another one is an addiction to our phones—it is easy to pass hours of scrolling off as “work” or “research,” but I admittedly need to stop and think when I open the Instagram app and tap to ignore my time limit warning…
What is one of your biggest successes so far?
Starting my journaling business, No Particular Order, and sticking to it. I have the tendency of getting very excited about a project and then getting too overwhelmed to keep the ball rolling, but I think since this business holds so much meaning to me and there is still a long laundry list of things I want to do with it, my enthusiasm for it hasn’t wavered (and I don’t see that happening anytime soon.)
Where do you see yourself in 5 years?
Hopefully still living in a city—here or abroad—with some sort of cocker spaniel sidekick and continuing to grow No Particular Order.
What’s your go-to Spotify Playlist?
What is your fashion uniform?
Men’s jeans, The Ines or Mini Elle pointed-toe heels, and a passed-down sweater (the best in my collection come from my Yaya and Opa). I love accessorizing with fun belts and a whole lotta blush.
