If you live in Downtown Jersey City, you’ve probably seen Venus and Lizzy. For a year now I have been secretly crushing on these sisters, they are so stylish, unique and they are always dressed like they are about to jump on a stage. I would see them walking around with their dogs, either in short shorts and crop tops or their signature cat suits and they are FEIRCE!!! When they agreed to be on my “Stylish JC Peeps” blog post , I literally did the running man.
We met in Van Vorst Park, I spotted them a mile away in their insane outfits. They looked amazing! The thing is, their personality makes them even sexier. They are both so nice, friendly and really fun to talk to…. could they be my new bff’s? haha

What is your favorite Jersey City hangout spot? “We love food and there are so many awesome places to eat in Jersey City. We are a big fan of Carmen Rosa Bakery a dominican bakery on 2nd and Coles. They are awesome, they have an amazing Tres Leches and great canolis funny enough. We also love Taqueria Viva Mexico on Sussex streets, we have a special place in our heart for it, its family owned and its amazing, the tres leches cake there is also amazing! We are big sugar heads (what female isn’t?!) . We love Torico’s ice-cream as well for that reason. We are a big fan of the pizza at the Bistro! the guy that works there is a doll and we are kind of obsessed with him. We also love the Gypsy grill, and their falafel is great.”
A fun fact about Venus and Lizzy? “A lot of people seem to think that we are twins. So the fun fact would be that we aren’t twins! And also that we aren’t bitches. People come up to us and say they thought we would be unfriendly ! so thats another fun fact. We are friendly!!
That was so fun!
<3 These girls.
