Downtown, natch!

A few things probably come to mind when one thinks of Jersey City street style, but it’s becoming increasingly hard to pinpoint in such a densely populated, diverse city. Out-of-towners (heck, even some people who live here) might not know this, but Jersey City is actually closer to Manhattan than a couple of NYC’s actual boroughs. It’s no wonder that the big city’s fashion influence spills over to the neighboring state. NOT all of New Jersey is “Jersey Shore” — let’s get that straight.

Street style blog,, scours downtown JC in search of the city’s stylish. Before actually meeting Marinell – the photographer/blogger behind Downtown, natch! (not to mention graphic design & social media extraordinaire) – I read an interview with her where she said that she doesn’t seek to shoot trends and labels, but rather, uniqueness and creativity. This is how I knew we’d get along wonderfully. Not only does she have a great eye, but her attention to detail is second to none. There’s a lot coming up for Downtown, natch! Even a possible Downtown, natch! x Sewbie collabo. Stay tuned.

Here’s a taste of the blog. Click on the pictures to be directed to the original posts, natch.

I always feel like a dumbass when someone is taking my picture. So I end up fiddling around, like look for my pockets, for example.

If you happen to be strolling the PAD in JC, be on the lookout for Marinell & her camera. She’s a sweetheart so don’t be afraid to say hello! Check out more here:
