Our Vision

Designed with the business professional in mind, Atlanta Fashion Bloggers began as a meet-up group for local fashion bloggers, professionals and enthusiast.  As our group members grew to over 500, to include beginner to expert bloggers, we knew it was time to expand our support services for the members by offering a resource membership website.  Our meet-up group is free to join and does not require a fee.  Our website charges a minimal monthly fee to maintain exclusive services, tools and opportunities for those bloggers who wish to build and expand on their brand.

Atlanta Fashion Bloggers is a unique membership service as it provides a more direct interaction with members, connecting them to the local fashion scene and events.  AFB builds relationships, networking opportunities, mentor blogger support and expert knowledge.

Our ultimate goal is to assist members with building a lucrative, life-changing fashion blog that expresses their interest and the interest of its readers.

Tondaleya Shamley

Founder & CEO

I am the Travel and Fashion Expert! As an independent travel agent, I've combined my two loves to offer my clients exceptional rare experiences. From fashion weeks all over the world to exclusive access to all things fabulous, an undeniable combination.  My goal is to help my clients create their dream vacation at the best possible deal!

I am a military spouse, now retired, who has lived and traveled all over the world. I've lived in Europe, traveled the Autobahns of Germany, shopped in Czechoslovakia, walked the cobble stoned roads of London and visited Paris France by sleeper train. I've taken cruises and stayed in several hotels throughout the country.

As a Travel and Fashion blogger, my goal is to provide insight, travel tips, exclusive shopping opportunities and easy resort style.  I take pride in sharing local fashion event experiences and keeping our members informed about the latest fashion trends.  My current blog post focus on the mature women who are converting their style to more polished looks.

I was born and raised in Prince Georges County, Maryland. I attended the University of Maryland Eastern Shore where I received a Bachelors of Science degree in Fashion Merchandising and Textiles. I earned her Masters of Business Administration from the University of Phoenix. I have over 30 years of experience on the fashion and modeling industries.

I am a published author and was the Editor-In-Chief of epStyle e-Magazine and Fashion/Style Contributor for Army Wife Magazine, Fort Bliss Life, Living Single in America and the El Paso Examiner.  I take pride in sharing my talent and knowledge about the travel, blogging, modeling and fashion industries. I have been a business owner since 1995; owning and operating modeling agencies in the Washington DC Area and Germany.

Most recently, I am a devoted independent travel agent for many fashion related groups such as Atlanta Fashion Bloggers and Fashion! Travel! Glamour!  meetup groups.  I've served  as Co-owner of Fashion Cruise Brand and Global Power Bloggers Agency.

As a Fashion Model Consultant,my self-published book, "The Business of Fashion Model, what you should know before entering the industry” is a resource for fashion models.  I've taken everything I've learned about fashion and modeling to share with others wishing to enter the industry.  Being a Fashion Model Consultant has also allowed me to train models in front of the camera and on the runway, often coordinating and styling for top designers.

Out the box Fashion Blog


Co-CEO & Lead Blogger

I am Quintan, wife, mother of four, and founder of “Out of the Box Fashion.”  “Out of the Box…”  started in 2012, as a way of highlighting the latest fashion trends. My passion and desire is to help women create original styles. To achieve this, I created this Fashion Blog. “Out of the Box Fashion”  provides inspirational styling tips. The goal is to get women to step ‘outside of the box’. Be daring while feeling confident in designing the perfect look. I started this fashion blog not knowing where it would lead…

My journey has been wonderful! I was a young mother and wife who survived like most women. I cast my dreams aside. I immersed myself in raising my children and being the backbone of my family. They were always encouraged to proactively pursue their dreams. I was consistent in maintaining my vision, always imagining that one day it would unfold.

As my kids grew older and more independent, my own dream weighed heavily on my heart. Having more time to concentrate and put things into action, I knew I had to get busy pursuing my goals!   I started small; working on looks for people that I knew.   Suggestions from clients and friends, encouraged me to begin this fashion blog. I stepped out of my comfort zone (the box) and began doing what I love.

Sometimes we end up losing ourselves. That’s exactly where I step in! I encourage women to look beyond and try something new. Buy that SEXY DRESS you wanted or that RED CLUTCH that you stare at when out shopping. Fashion is all about expression, so be creative and have fun!

I have styled many. I’ve worked on film sets, styling actors. And I've done numerous photo shoots. My sense of style is unique; I show you how to create with closet staples. I assist with wardrobe transitioning for the seasons.  My clients are convinced to explore. I find the best high-ticketed merchandise! Learn how to “look like you have money” without breaking your bank.

I enjoy people and love helping women.  My blog hopes to help women realize their worth and free them from fears. BE BOLD, BE BEAUTIFUL AND REACH FOR THE STARS!
