Entering the start-up fashion world as one of Trunk Club’s first two dozen employees, Winnetka’s ANNA WISNIEWSKI has always loved fashion. Married with three young boys she now runs a blog, operates Instagram/ social media channels, and dabbles in influencer consulting under See Anna Jane LLC. As a side hustle in 2019, she co-founded One/Third, a women’s jacket company, with a former Trunk Club colleague. This fashionista stepped away from her social media presence, clothing company, and fashion consulting business to share how she stays on trend in a sartorial world.
ON HER NIGHTSTAND
“I’m in a book club where not everyone knows each other and it provides for a diverse book selection. I highly recommend that anyone who loves to read should join a local book club—even if you just listen to the audiobook (which I often do). I recently finished The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo by Taylor Jenkins Reid; I know I’m a little late to the game but it’s definitely an instant classic. I love the escapism of fiction, especially books with historical context. I’d also recommend the American Royals series by Katharine McGee and The Nightingale by Kristin Hannah.”
ON HER MOBILE
“Because I work in social media, I probably spend a little too much time on my phone. Like it or not, I do need to spend time scrolling Instagram and TikTok in the name of research. I especially love following cooking accounts for recipe inspiration. I also love following really personal style accounts like @BrooklynBlonde1 and @ladydianamay because they give me inspiration for my own content and for new One/ Third jackets. Other apps I love are Peloton (yes, even post-pandemic I am still very loyal), The New York Times Crossword (I do the mini-crossword and Spelling Bee most mornings), as well as the Out of Office (OOO) app, a new social travel recommendations app that I consulted for this past year.”
IN HER EARBUDS
“I listen to The New York Times podcast The Daily most mornings. I’m also very interested in true crime podcasts, especially the storytelling aspect; Wondery does a good job here. I still go to the city quite a bit for meetings so a great podcast or Audible book is my savior during that commute. When it comes to music, I am stuck in my youth and will listen to anything from oldies classic rock to early 2000s; my favorite bands range from Radiohead to The Beatles to Vampire Weekend to late ‘90s boy bands—I like a lot of music and subject my whole family to it while I’m cooking.”
