Heh-heh-hello! (Parker Posey in Party Girl voice.)
I’m Marie, a writer and editor born and raised in Southern California by a Filipina mom and an Italian dad. I have over a decade of experience in digital media, focusing mainly on beauty, fashion, and pop culture. My work can be seen in PAPER, The Cut, Allure, I-D, Bustle, Fashionista, Refinery29, Racked, and more.
I was the Senior Beauty Editor at HelloGiggles where I built the beauty vertical from the ground up. I was also a founding writer and the Style Advice Columnist for Rookie Magazine which was some of my most meaningful work. Before writing professionally, I had a mildly successful fashion blog (I prefer the term “cult classic”) called Agent Lover, and worked in the petroleum industry…which seems to shock everybody. I can do it all!
Speaking of, I love diving deep into everything from bowl-cuts to UFO cults, and have interviewed a variety of celebs from John Waters to Chrissy Teigen (and wrote PAPER cover stories on Christina Aguilera and Katy Perry).
In my spare time, I co-host Fishnet Flix, a podcast about costume design and fashion in film, and run a food blog called The Bloodfeast, which is inspired by period cravings (non-bleeders are also welcome!). If you can’t already tell, I’m not a minimalist and I hate the color beige.
Contact me at hello[at]marielodi.com if you’d like to work together or just want to gossip about liquid eyeliner or ’90s movies!
