Meet Amanda Perez-Aponte - our leading lady in the second chapter of our Short Stories Series.
Beautiful, driven, draped in design, Amanda would use the hashtag #intentional to describe herself and approach to life. As an executive, mom and wife Amanda wears many hats, and wears them well. You can almost hear Ciara’s “Level Up” playing in the background when she enters a room. Sit up and take notes – this woman is one to watch.
Amanda explains her style as classic and timeless, sprinkled (when needed) with a little “sazón” and her style icons reflect that description perfectly. From Maria Félix, Dolores Del Rio, Rita Moreno, Jackie Kennedy and Audrey Hepburn to Zoe Saldaña, Eva Mendes and Jennifer Lopez, she is inspired by some of the world’s most glamorous women.
But deeper than the glitz, far beyond the incredible clothes, Amanda believes that it’s a person’s character that truly defines their beauty. A quiet confidence, always in the eyes, that really brings out the allure in a person.
Like so many of us, Amanda has been focusing on familia and the gift of time during the past year. Working smarter, not harder, to enjoy the moments that matter most - a good book (she recommends “The Four Agreements” by Don Miguel Ruiz and “Breaking Busy: How to find Peace and Purpose in a World of Crazy” by Alli Worthington), the changing seasons (something she loves so much about living in New England) and spending time with her tribe, lovingly nicknamed the #AponteLions.
We’re so happy to have you in our fashion family, Amanda, and look forward to you continuing to "be the lite" in your new Nina Nieves cape.
