Everyone has a procrastination tactic – maybe you find yourself refreshing your Instagram feed, preparing an elaborate meal, or going for a leisurely walk while you’re completing a task. My personal coping mechanism? Make a shopping list. Regardless of my mood or exactly why I’m killing time, my first instinct is to make a list of the things I need—well, more often than not, the things I need. would like but don’t really need it. Grocery lists, arbitrary to-do lists and yes, shopping lists.
As a fashion editor, I keep a running tab that I love brands and stores owned or designed by Black talent.

In the editing section below you’ll find a bunch of beautiful entries pearl earrings arrive knitwear remade and brands ranging from smaller indie labels like LaSette and Sammy B to industry heavyweights like Telfar and Victor Gelmaud. You, reader of Who What Wear, then this book is right for you, because no one loves shopping lists better than you (except you really).
