May 26, 2016

Now here on Fashion without the Fortune, you know we are allll about the affordable fashion find. We like amazing quality pieces for loooow prices. Which brings us to our new obsession- thredUp.

If you’ve never heard of thredUP, it is an online consignment shop, so you are able to sell and buy clothes! One man’s trash is another man’s treasure, am I right?!

The best part is they have some of our favorite brands and stores [Zara, TopShop, J Brand, Free People] and they share pictures anddd list the condition of the items .


Tee picked out this light pink Ralph Lauren button down. She loves classic button downs for work and even more casual looks! A quality button down is a super verstatile piece to have in your closet.

This top was listed in excellent condition and it seriously looks brand new.

Road Trippin’

May 19, 2016

Sooo, for Memorial Day Weekend we are taking a mini vaca to Savannah, Georgia!  I cannot wait cause I have only heard wonderful things about this charming destination.  Kat has been there before but we still wanted to compile a list of things we want to do and restaurants/bars we want to try!

I loveeeee spooky things so one of my must dos is the Blue Orb Ghost Tour.  It got amazing reviews and is definitely something different to try.

The Olde Pink house seems just like a classic tavern to try when visiting Savannah.  It’s an 18th century mansion that serves classic southern cuisine with live music!

The first day of Summer is June 20th which is a couple of weeks away, but here in Florida those Summer, pool party temps are already happening.

Beach days, pool hangs, and whatever other water activities you’re into [water-balloon fights anyone!?] are quickly approaching if not already occurring where you live. So we haveee to break out the swimwear, am I right?

Swimwear shopping for us personally is not something we’re too excited about. Don’t get us wrong we love a cute suit, but heading to a dressing room to try on swimsuits in often terrible lighting caaan send your day into a downward spiral.


So instead of torturing ourselves in a fitting room we’ve linked some of our current favorite {affordable} suits that you can order online, try on in the comfort of your home, and send back if you find they are not the right fit for your bod.

1.Lace Up Heels

Now my number one favorite in March was lace up sandals, so obviously there is a trend happening here! I just can’t get enough of the lace up trend. These three pairs were so incredibly affordable, which made them even more of a favorite to me!

\\ Mother’s Day //

May 6, 2016

Celebrating our moms or even the motherly figures in our lives, is really special to Kat and I.  And of course the go-to gift is the bouquet of flowers and a card, but with all that moms do, it is nice to treat them to some special but affordable gifts!

{LIFE} is a fiesta!

May 4, 2016

With Cinco de Mayo this Thursday, it is only right that we share our favorite margarita recipe with you all!

It is beyond delicious and so simple and customizable. We hope you all have a wonderful time celebrating and ¡Salud!




Tequila! [3oz or depending on desired strength of marg]

Obviously this is a must have unless you are making a mocktail!


Juice! [1 cup]

This is my favorite to use because it isn’t very heavy but super delicious. You can totally use regular orange juice too!


Frozen or fresh mango! [2 1/2 cups of frozen mango or 2 ripe mangos cubed]

Now, this is a super important ingredient as these are mango margaritas. I always have frozen mango on hand as it is one of my favorite snacks, but fresh works awesome too! If you use fresh mango you will need ice to add to the blender.


Limes & Hot Sauce! [2-3 small limes//dash of hot sauce]

You will need the juice of two limes for the blending of the margarita and one half of a lime to use for the rim and garnish. The hot sauce is optional. I love a little kick, but adding the hot sauce in is totally up to you!


Sea Salt (or Sugar) & Chili Powder! [1 tsp chili powder// 1 tsp sea salt]

These ingredients are for the rim and you can use salt or substitute sugar if you like a sweeter rim!


  1. Add all the ingredients, except the chili powder and sea salt to the blender and blend until smooth. If you choose to use fresh mango, make sure and add a handful of ice cubes to the blender. Taste and adjust sweetness/alcohol strength. If you prefer your marg sweeter add some extra mango or even some agave syrup!DSC_1690

2. Use a wedge of the third lime and rim the edges of your glasses. Immediately dip the glass rims into the chili powder and salt [or sugar] mixture to coat. Cut thin slices of the leftover lime to garnish.


3. Pour in your margarita mixture and enjoy!


We know we normally don’t post recipes on our blog, but we hope you enjoy this festive margarita recipe! Let us know if you try it out & how you like it!


Happy Cinco de Mayo!
