NYE {casual} INSPO

December 28, 2016

We love getting dressed up for NYE-the sequins, glitter, gold everything! But not always do your plans revolve around a dressy event.

We wanted to share some New Year’s Eve looks that were leaning on the casual side while still adding some fun, festive touches.

A denim shirt is a staple in most people’s wardrobes.

It can be dressed up or down and works perfectly for this occasion. Dressed up with some black skinny pants, nude heels, and few fun accessories make it the perfect basis for a casual NYE look.

Tee added a fun black velvet bow and a gold tassel necklace to amp up her look!

Sequin leggings are perfect for New Year’s Eve. I am loving these ones!

I love pairing gold with more neutral tones! This green flowy blouse and lightweight trench {under $15!!} make for the perfect additions to keep this look casual.

I’m obsessed with these heels from Payless! They are so comfortable and under $30!

We hope you have a fun & safe New Year’s Eve!

Cheers to an exciting 2017!


Casual WINTER Wear {Featuring ZAFUL}

December 22, 2016

It’s officially winter!

Dressing for a Florida winter is muuuch different than most winter seasons across the rest of the world. We are just happy the temps finally dropped down to the 60’s today!

With that in mind we have some casual winter inspiration for you today. If you are in the midst of a freezing winter season you could easily throw a coat and scarf over both of these looks and be good to go!

I am loving this floral dress c/o ZAFUL! There are so many different ways to wear it.

For this time of year I layered it over a black cami and some black opaque tights. It also comes with a nude bandeau and has a snap closure to make the neckline less of a deep-v.

This dress is currently on clearance for less than $20!!

Tee styled her casual winter look around this gorgeous eggplant sweater.

This gorgeous green button down has an adorable black velvet bow detail around the neckline! It is c/o ZAFUL and is such a steal {under $25!!}.

Tee paired it with some black skinny jeans and gold flats.

This button up comes in so many gorgeous colors and would look amazing paired with skirts as well! It can be dressed up or down.

Shopping {Madora}

November 28, 2016

When Madora reached out to us to let us experience their shopping app, we were definitely intrigued. It is a new fashion app, and the features are really helpful for us shopaholics!


My favorite part of the app is that you are able to take pictures of items you see when you’re out shopping and the app will search for similar, more affordable options. This is really helpful when you’re shopping but don’t want to pay the high price tag of something trendy you see in the store.

Tee had been looking for some combat boots and used Madora to find something similar.



I have been longgging for a Chloe Drew bag for quite some time. I used the app to find a dupe and I’m in love!



We are definitely fans of the Madora app and the concept is very innovative. They have amazing customer service which is so helpful and it’s so convenient that everything is done on the app itself.

The items we ordered were not the best quality, but you are paying for items at a low price point that are not name brand. If you’re looking for trendy shoe and bag styles that are on the affordable side we recommend giving the app a try.

Download the app here and try it out for yourself!

 {These products were sent to us but all opinions are our own.}




November 23, 2016

Living here in Florida the temps take awhile to drop. We wait around for some cool weather so that we can finally bust out our favorite jackets without sweating by noon.

We’re here to share with you {two} of our absolute favorite jackets this season. They are totally opposite of each other, but are both super versatile and fun!

{Utility Jacket}


Now many of you already have one of these jackets in your closet-but if you don’t you NEED one! They are so incredibly comfy but can be styled a million different ways, dressed down or up.




Tee scored this Michael Stars utility jacket from Marshalls. It looks so cute paired with a graphic T and some skinny jeans!

{Sequin Bomber}


Now I am obsessed with anything sparkly or shiny. Covered in sequins? Yes, please!


I love that this bomber has just an added touch of glam with sequined sleeves. It looks amazing dressed up with heels or just as good with a pair of sneakers!




I know that I will be wearing it throughout the Holiday season! {Bonus it’s a STEAL!}



Thanks for reading!



Comfy Sweaters + Giving Thanks

November 22, 2016

Thanksgiving is a few days away and we could not be more excited to EAT! Well that and of course spend time with those we love and appreciate all the good that we have in our lives.

Because Thanksgiving circulates around food we neeeed to be comfy! I do not need to accentuate any food baby with a tight top or dress.

Our go-tos this holiday are cozy, comfy sweaters. They keep you warm and are still comfy to lounge around in all day.

Kat and I decided to style our Saturday shopping outfit with the color MUSTARD!  We both found cute  and affordable Social T tee’s (for only $8) at Marshalls featuring the mustard color, which is so perfect for Fall.

Cheers to 1 Year!

October 31, 2016

Celebrating our 1 year Blogiversary today and asking ourselves “Where did the time go?!”.


A year has legitimately flown by and yet we have learned so much during this time. A year ago we were nervous to launch Fashion without the Fortune, not really confident in our blogging skills and continuously asking ourselves “Is anyone even going to read this thing?!”. But we took the plunge, wrote our first post {our guide to shopping Marshalls}, and pressed publish.

And we’re so happy we did!

We have met so many incredible people this past year through this blogging adventure-people from across the world and right in our own backyard. We’ve loved sharing our posts and can’t wait to see what this next year brings for our little blog.


So here’s a cheers to affordable fashion, fun travel adventures, and sharing all of it with my sister!

Cheers to 1 year Fashion without the Fortune!
