Jenna Saraco of Local Creative shares her shopping wish list

Jenna Saraco Brooklyn Local Creative

There’s a lot of amazing women doing amazing things around the world, but there’s a serious concentration of talent in Brooklyn right now. The duo behind Local Creative, a collaborative lifestyle project, are dedicated to celebrating just that and are as much a part of the movement as they are its champions. Jenna Saraco and Nicole Steriovski tell the stories of local creatives, artists and entrepreneurs with their blog and creative services, focused on where we live, shop, travel and gather. “While introducing our audience to these new communities and experiences, we hope to strengthen their awareness of how each potential purchase can affect the people around them. Bringing the focus back to a local, sustainable economy.”

We’re big fans, so we asked them to curate their personal picks from the Garmentory community of indie boutiques and emerging designers. Here, Jenna shares her love for simplicity, the unexpected and really, really good jeans.

WHAT’S YOUR PERSONAL STYLE PHILOSOPHY? Simple, classic, easy. I definitely tend towards a minimal approach, but I do like the occasional pop of something unexpected once in awhile.

WHAT’S THE BEST FASHION ADVICE YOU’VE EVER RECEIVED? If you look good, you feel good. I definitely think this holds true.

WHO IS YOUR STYLE ICON? My grandmother. Jane Birkin, Baby (from Dirty Dancing), Ali Macgraw, Christy Turlington.

WHAT ARE YOUR PERSONAL WARDROBE STAPLES? A really good pair of jeans, a nice white tee, a good wool sweater for the winter, and lots of shoe options!

HOW WOULD YOU DEFINE BROOKLYN STYLE? Spread love, it’s the Brooklyn way.
