Meet the writer

Mar • len (mar-il-yn) noun:

A writer living in Chicago with a penchant for mom jeans, kimchi tacos, and newspaper archives. I’m a freelance writer that covers fashion and beauty history, feminism, and travel. My work has appeared in CNN Style, Allure, Bustle, Racked, Livingly, and Apartment Therapy, among others.

With my content, I like to encourage. Encourage to put on those overalls even if your thighs pancake to the size of Texas, to learn about women's history even if it's hard to find, to buy that plane ticket even if you have never been outside of your zip code, and to go make your life as colorful as you can manage. I’m a versatile writer, and create content for websites and magazines. Let’s work together- we’ll be an amazing team!
