Maria Molino: A Quick Chat – We had the opportunity to chat with New Jersey-based stylist and blogger Maria Molino! By Eleanor Klein.
Where are you based?
Do you have any siblings?
Yes. Two younger brothers.
How did you get into blogging?
I grew up loving to read, write and draw. When I graduated high school, I was torn between going to college for fashion vs. going for literature. I ended up going to Rutgers for Literature. After years of struggling on how to best combine all of my interests, I realized blogging and being a full-time Instagrammer were the answers I had been looking for.
What was your first paid collaboration?
My first paid collaboration was with a local lingerie boutique, Sweetest Sin.
What is your most memorable career moment?
Getting to run the Instagram account for Pretty Woman: The Musical after being recognized by their creative execs after I posted photos of myself in costumes inspired by the show.
Who are some of your favorite influencers?
Aylin Koenig, Lorna Luxe, Leonie Hanne, Camila Coelho and Aimee Song.
Who is your style icon?
Forever Coco Chanel. Unafraid, Independent and Classy. It all came through in her style.
How would you describe your personal style?
Simple, functional, but flirty!
