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, downtownnatch.com, 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.
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: www.downtownnatch.com.
