Stylish Treasures: Fall Edition

I have a whole handful of Fall/Winter friendly items on my instagram shop @stylish_treasures!! 

Here are a few I just added today:
 I had to nickname this one "The Goddess." It is the mother of all vintage coats. Beautiful fur collar, black and white detail with all the buttons intact.
 This one comes in close second, almost first to the previous jacket. Another vintage beauty. Lovely green color with a brown fur collar. This one may just stay in my winter wardrobe. Hate when this happens to me. hehe.
 Another vintage "made in USA" coat. Gorgeous red color. In amazing condition. Warm and eye catching.
I wore this several times last year. Such a fun plaid detail. Great colors. Perfect for Fall/Winter. 

There is so much more so search @stylish_treasures on instagram and I do everything safely through paypal. 

Beijos!!

As you may know by now, I love finding inspiration in scriptures and quotes. I came across a few today that I found so much comfort in and hope they can help you too....

"I recognize that, on occasion, some of our most fervent prayers may seem to go unanswered. We wonder, "why?" I know that feeling! I know the fears and tears of such moments. But I also know that our prayers are never ignored. Our faith is never unappreciated. I know that an all-wise Heavenly Father's perspective is much broader that is ours. While we know of our mortal problems and pain, He knows of our immortal progress and potential. If we pray to know His will and submit ourselves to it with patience and courage, heavenly healing can take place in His own way and time." --Russell M. Nelson
 I really love this quote so much. I think every single one of us has felt abandoned or alone in our lives at some point. But this is so comforting to think that we have to remember the Lords perspective is way bigger than ours. Patience is not an easy thing. And as it says here....If we are patient and have courage in THE LORDS time heavenly healing can take place. I don't know about you, but I don't believe there could be anything better than heavenly healing. It is a healing that can go straight to the soul. And with His help it can last. Don't give up. Don't lose faith.

"And if men come unto me I will show unto them their weakness. I give unto men weakness that they may be humble; and my grace is sufficient for all men that humble themselves before me; for if they humble themselves before me, and have faith in me, then will I make weak things become strong unto them."  --Ether 12:27  
 Pride can be so difficult and strong. I love the promise in this scripture that if we let go of that pride and humble ourselves...The Lord will bless us with the strength we need.

The last quote kinda brings these three together. 

"To any who may be struggling to see that light and find that hope, I say: Hold on. Keep trying. God loves you. Things will improve. Christ comes to you in His 'more excellent ministry' with a future of 'better promises.' He is your 'high priest of good things to come.'"--Jeffrey R. Holland
 He does love you. I know that with all my heart. 

What are some of your own interpretations of these quotes/scriptures? What touched your heart? Or what has inspired you lately? I would love your to hear your thoughts....

Happy Sunday!

Life Lately

Time has been so good to me the past few weeks...Here are a few photos of what's been happenin...
This guy right here is quite wonderful. This past Saturday he and I ran the Haunted Half Marathon in Salt Lake! We've been running all summer and decided it would be fun to have something to work toward at the end of the "good weather seasons." We both were both pleased with our times. I finished 13 minutes faster than the American Fork Canyon Half I did in June this summer...I am happy with my progress and hope to be able to keep it up during the cold months!
 Salt Lake does Fall really well! It has been absolutely gorgeous. The colors and the weather have not disappointed.
I have been wanting one of these bags for month!! I was lucky enough to meet up with Sarah, the owner and designer of Anne B. I got to choose each detail of my bag and got to wait in anticipation as it was handmade especially for me. I watched her put the finishing touches on this one..hehe.. US made and best of all Anne B employs local refugees here in Salt Lake City. I feel so privilaged to know Sarah and see what hard work goes into her business. She is very well deserving. I hope you'll check out her website and I can't wait to style this beauty!!
I was lucky enough to win one of her cosmetic bags which fits nicely in my purse and goes with me everywhere. I loved the fabric so much that's what I decided to go with on my cross body bag as well. Swoon!!
 Just trying to stay cozy as the weather turns...

Let's just finish with a little "style flash"
 Karla and I checked out the new Uptown Cheapskate in Sugar House and found ourselves some treasures! It's a resell shop/consignment shop with lots of name brands! I purchased this fun sweater among other fun items.
 I've been wanting a fun, dainty, everyday necklace to wear with my longer ones and finally found this one from Wood Keeps. This one is called "She's a lady" and I added a little gold ring. This is another company I am beyond pleased with their mission. They strive to produce the best quality but with the lowest possible impact to the earth. All their products are crafted using reclaimed and re-purposed woods. They search for lumber with a history (which is my favorite part as you know I love vintage for that reason..) I also love that what they use allows them to have no waste in the furniture fabrication as they use the cut-offs and overshoots as keepsakes! Check out all their amazing items on their website HERE.    
I got these Asic tennies on Karla and I's excursion to Uptown Cheapskate. I have to hold myself off from wanting to go back! hehe.
 My love for Lotta comes along with me in the cooler months. :)
Vintage sweater for $5! woot woot.
Andd.....thats all folks! Thanks for following along!

Beijos!!
