Meet The Writer...

Mar• len (mar-il-yn) noun: A writer living in Chicago with a penchant for mom jeans, kimchi tacos, and a exploring the different sides of fashion.

I’m a freelance writer that covers fashion and beauty history, feminism, and lifestyle. I was a fashion and beauty staff writer at Bustle from 2015 to 2019, and have been a monthly contributor to Livingly since 2015. My freelance work has appeared on Vox, CNN Style, Time, Bustle, Racked, Livingly, and Apartment Therapy, among others.

I specialize in fashion history research, and like to explore how trends mirror the political and social changes in the era in which they arise. Ask me how the midi skirt was seen as fascist in the 1970’s and how lipstick tubes were weapons during the Cold War. (Fun stuff!)

When I’m not researching the sociology behind fashion, I also write lifestyle pieces. I love writing about travel, home design, and emerging fashion trends. Need someone to craft an interesting story for your publication? Let’s talk!
