Marie Lodi was raised in beautiful Southern California on a steady diet of Dynasty, comic books, singing while cooking, Coast to Coast AM, and the National Enquirer. She loves the whimsical and the weird, the fanciful and the filthy, and the ridiculous and the romantic.

Marie is currently the Beauty Editor at HelloGiggles. Before that, she was the style advice columnist at Rookie from the time of its launch, a nights and weekends contributor at Jezebel, and wrote thangs for Refinery29, The Hairpin, Broadly, Lenny Letter, Racked, and Beautylish.

Her personal style and pop culture blog, Agent Lover, launched in 2008.  A complete collection of work can be found on Contently
