Shopping Sustainably with Annalise Ogelby
My mantra this year has been to lead with intention in everything I do — and that even includes how I shop for my wardrobe. Now more than ever, I’m focusing on supporting small businesses, ethical and sustainable businesses, black-owned businesses, and women-owned businesses. I want to spend where I have the chance to make a positive impact with my purchases. I love that MODISTE is a beautifully curated destination for so many emerging brands that fit into these categories. On that note, I have pulled together some of my favorite pieces that MODISTE has to offer this season.
As far as clothing goes, I am loving the versatility of the Cashmere Maxi Jumper in black by Mr. Mittens. Wear it as a dress or an oversize top depending on the day. I'd pair it with the By Far Baby Amber Bag for a pop of color. I also love the sustainable mission behind Anna October, and their Ingrid Knit Top has a stunning neckline and is ultra-flattering because of the ribbed fabric (deadstock, I should mention), and I'd pair this with some vintage jeans and the DeMellier London Midi Los Angeles Leather Bag (in black). Each season, I love investing in a good piece of outerwear, and this season I am loving either the Ruby Trench Coat by Les Coyotes De Paris or Bevza's Oversize Knit Cardigan coat. Regardless of your pick, you'll be cozy, and stylish.
I really hope that you enjoyed reading through my picks! Here’s to shopping with intentionality now, and forever.
