Colorful Dress Rented from Le Tote

The purpose of AFA is to convince non-believers that dressing well can enable success and happiness.

I want to inspire those who are interested in fashion and show that class and confidence are essential to great style, but that cute shoes don’t hurt either. I believe in sharing style advice in a way that’s honest, straightforward, and humorous.

Allie Barke, founder

Originally from Southern California, I am currently a business student at DePaul University in Chicago. I’ve worked in fashion my entire life and my personal style has been evolving since I started this blog during high school in 2012. I think great style is all about balance – high and low-end, dressy and casual, feminine silhouettes juxtaposed with pieces that are borrowed from the boys.
