plaid and stripes

Ya know we like to eat, therefore our Thanksgiving style is always on the more forgiving side. But that doesn’t mean we are sacrificing style for comfort!

We styled two pieces with the prettiest ruffle details that are perfect for the Holiday.

PINSPO // Rachel McAdams

November 2, 2017

We haven’t written a PINSPO post in foooreeevverr {cue Squints from Sandlot}. They are always one of our most popular posts so we definitely felt like this one was due!

We are big fans of Rachel McAdams style. She always looks amazing whether it’s on the red carpet or her everyday street style. We decided to take two of our favorite Fall inspired looks of hers and recreate them for muuuch less.

Staple Suede Jacket // Worth the Splurge

October 22, 2017
both suede jacket looks

Now you know here on Fashion without the Fortune we are all about affordable fashion. But sometimes you come across a piece that is so timeless and wearable that you know it’s worth the extra money. This jacket is definitely that piece.

This jacket was part of the Nordstrom Anniversary sale this year and even with the sale price we weren’t sure if we should spend the money. Tee took the plunge and bought the gorgeous gray shade. It is so perfect for the cooler Fall nights and can be styled in so many ways!

DIY // Embroidered Patch Denim Jacket

October 16, 2017
embroidered denim jacket

Denim jackets are a wardrobe staple for us. They can be dressed up or down and come in so many different colors and styles.

The patch denim jacket has been popping up everywhere, from reaaally expensive versions (YSL has one for $1,250) to basic trendy versions you can find at Forever 21. Now back in High School I loved patches. When a pair of my favorite jeans started to have tears and rips, I threw on some vintage patches to solve the issues. My favorite part about adding patches or pins to a piece of denim is that it can totally be personal to you.

I like that brands are coming out with affordable versions of the patch denim jacket, but I feel like the fun of having a jacket like this is to make it personalized.

I scored this denim jacket from Forever 21 during one of their flash sales. It is aaaamazing quality, was $8, and is a men’s xs so it fits a little bigger which I love. There were already patches on it (two-thirds of which I hated) and a cute embroidered detail at the back. I figured I could easily remove the disliked patches and personalize it with my own finds! I left the rose patch and cut the other two off the jacket.

Autumn Inspired // Moscow Mule

October 12, 2017

Fun, festive drinks are right up our alley and with Moscow Mules being one of our signature summer bevs we had to put a Fall twist on it. Last year we made a festive fizz that was so tasty!

This drink is so delicious and easy to recreate! It would be perfect for any Fall festivities, Halloween parties, or just chilling on the couch watching Hocus Pocus (can I get a hallelujah that Halloween movie marathons are back?!) .

all ingredients

Serves: 2



4 oz of vodka (this is totally up to your personal preference of drink strength)

1/4 cup cranberry juice

1/2 cup sparkling apple cider

ginger beer

apple (sliced for garnish)

ice only


Fill two large glasses with ice (I used copper mugs, but anything will work)

Add 2 oz of vodka to each glass (adjust to taste)

Divide the 1/4 cup of cranberry juice between the two glasses.

Add 1/4 a cup of sparkling cider to each glass.

Fill the cup the rest of the way with ginger beer.

Stir gently to combine and garnish with sliced apples.

Kopari // Five Products I’ve Been Using Non Stop

October 10, 2017
skincare products

I love skincare products. As I get older I almost feel like I have to make up for every bad skin decisions I made in the past. Why didn’t I listen when my parents told me to lather on the sunscreen?! I digress. When you find a skincare product that works for you, you latch on to it for dear life- this is exactly what I did when I first used Kopari’s coconut melt.

Now I was like many others out there who might be thinking-what’s the difference between this coconut oil and the coconut oil I grab off the grocery shelf at Target? The quality of this coconut oil is aaamazing. Long story short not all coconut oils are created equal. But you can read more about that here!

The following five products have been dominating my skincare game! With the weather starting to get cooler and drier, I know that I don’t have to worry about staying hydrated and glowy and Fall & Winter long.

Styling Stripes [day & night]

August 13, 2017
styling stripes for day and night

We love a good classic print and for us stripes are a staple. A timeless style for all ages. We often hear people say ‘I can’t wear stripes-they’re unflattering!’ to which we say YESSSS YOU CAN and no they’re not!

Often times people misjudge that the stripes themselves are unflattering, when really it is the cut of the top, dress, or pants. Stripes have come a long way from the basic striped T. There are so many gorgeous pieces out there featuring the classic print and we’re styling two of them for day and night.

J’aime Montréal {Travel Guide}

July 31, 2017

Montreal was so beautiful I honestly can’t say it enough! We travelled there for David’s birthday because it is his favorite city-I had never been. He had been quite a few times and always talked about how gorgeous and fun Montreal was {so true!} so I couldn’t wait to go and explore!

Even though David had visited a few times before most of the places we explored he’d never been. It’s just a testament to how much there is to see. Even in the 4 days we were there we didn’t hit everything we wanted to, but that just means we’ll definitely be returning!

So here is our guide to Eats & Drinks, Things to Do, and What to Wear Montreal edition!
