Thanks for stopping by and I hope that the content I create inspires you.. and your closet!

Allie Wears started as a hobby back in 2012 to distract me from my 9-5 and now, it has now morphed into both a business and a brand. What started as a fashion blog has now evolved into a life and style blog, as I find I enjoy sharing all aspects of my life with you, affordable fashion being one.

My style has evolved since starting this blog, but one thing has remained true: my love for the sale rack. I have an innate ability to find great items on major sale – a trait I’m especially fond of. Being able to dress cute while on a budget should be a task conquered by all and I hope my blog inspires you to do so. Thank you so much for being here and as always, I’d love to hear from you so say hi!

I recently moved to Raleigh, NC from Southern California in 2018. I am originally from Boston so I’m excited to be back on the east coast.

I charge for my time, whether it’s a style post featuring a specific brand, an Instagram post endorsing a product, or an event that I am hosting.
