Hi!! I am so happy to start this blog. My Mom and I run FORTUITY boutiques that are located in college towns in Kansas. I love connecting and talking with my customers in our stores, but it is very hard to connect with all of you who shop online with us. I am hoping you get to know me through this blog and I will get to know you!


Me and My Momma in Spain last year!

Ever since I can remember I wanted to do something in fashion…Now I buy, market, and run 2 boutiques and http://www.fortuityusa.com with my mom and we are opening our third and fourth store fronts this summer!  I love love love that almost anyone who walks in our stores can leave with an amazing outfit that doesn’t cost them an arm and leg!

Other than my passion for fashion, I am a major foodie. Eating, cooking, all of it!  This probably comes from my grandma and her Italian genes. I will post photos and recipes on this blog, that are hopefully easy for you to make! Cooking can be intimidating, but once you get started and practice it gets easier and is so much fun!


Home made pasta and wine night!

Right now I don’t have a dog. My mom does and since I am with her everyday I pretty much have one too. His name is Riesling ( yes, like the wine) and he is a Pomeranian and the biggest diva I know.

I graduated from the University of Kansas where I was a member of Gamma Phi Beta in 2013. Since then I have lived in Kansas City and absolutely love it!

I can’t wait to show all of you my friends, family, and more through this blog, and of course lots of fashion and styling advice!

Xoxo, Ellie

    Hi Ellie,

    My name is Megan and I am a student at KU and I also work for Borda Productions. We are interested in partnering with Fortuity for our upcoming country music festival, Tumbleweed. We are interested in social media exchanges, promotions, and other means of advertising for both Fortuity and the festival. I have a lot of great ideas and would love to hear from you!

    If you are interested, please let me know!

    Thank you,
    Megan Tokic
