Don’t live the same year 75 times and call it life. Many believe that success is reserved for the few, when many times success can be summarized by a few dozen fundamentals repeated over time. Knowing this AMAS wanted to give you a roadmap for the new year.
We enlisted the help of Motivational speaker, Author and Coach Bernard Bergan. His experience on the battle field have made him an authority on goal setting and mission success. The challenges you face may not be life and death but our discussion will challenge you to change the habits that are holding you back. We will also give you strategies to improve your character, book suggestions, and principles to enrich your journey.
Tis the season! Here at AMAS we know finding the perfect gift can be a task, so we decided to give you some inspiration. It doesn’t matter if you are playing Santa or just treating yourself this year. We are confident none of these gift will end up at white elephant gift exchange in 2019.

I started this blog 2 years ago to mainly talk style, and I've learned in that time that actually, I can have more of an impact and connect with others through my stories. My life has not been perfect. I've made some huge, monumental mistakes, and had to learn things the hard way at times. I've also had many successes and a whole lot of fun, so that's why I've decided to shift gears a bit and focus more on stories and style together. I want to share my genuine raw experiences in hopes that they will enable me to connect, learn, and grow with you guys!
I’m a twenty-something from Monterrey, Mexico living the American dream in the US. I live in Seattle and I work in the tech industry. I decided to write a blog because I’m a big fan of style and fashion and I wanted to share this with other people. I like to travel a lot and visit new places. My motto is be bold and let the world hear your voice.
I’m Elisa (E for short). I was born and raised in New York City and started my fashion design career there almost twenty years ago. I currently live in Seattle with my husband, Peter, and daughter, Kinsley, and LOVE the PNW.
My passion and love for fashion have shown me many adventures. Through my travels and experiences in the fashion industry, I’m ready to tell my “side” of the story.
As a creative individual with a thirst for inspiration, I’ve created this blog as a space to write all I know about fashion through my daily life and travels adventures.

It’s the most wonderful time of the year (and no, we are not talking about X-mas or the return of Pumpkin spice lattes)!. For the fashionisto, fall is a sacred time where one can tout his mastery of textures and layering.
Layering up: the AMAS way
You will want to invest in pieces made of Merino Wool and Cashmere. As far as layers go, cardigans are your friend. The easy hack this season, is to make your outwear the outfit. One simple t-shirt or button up - with jeans and boots - can be elevated with the use of a topcoat, quilted vest or Peacoat. Switch out the jeans with slacks, add a tie with a tie bar, and that’s another sophisticated look for the office. No matter what your style is, make sure your autumn looks are as crisp as the weather.

Casually Cool with elements of luxury. Let the pants and the jacket do the talking. - Richard Meharry
It doesn't matter if you're off to the races or not. This look will get you attention at the race track or at the new rooftop bar. If it gets too hot, lose the jacket but not the aesthetic.
Travel in style and comfort. Tune out crying babies with some headphones and skip baggage claim with an all-purpose bag. With looks like these you should be on more than one runway.
Shed bad fashion and pounds.
Get more use out of your tux by making it casual. This look is casual enough to go to the grocery store and formal enough for events and professional wear.
SELL OR BE SOLD
This isn't a fashion show. Let them know you mean business when you walk into the boardroom. Remember a tie bar and pocket square will show you care about attention to detail.
Inspired by the spirt of the northwest. With a hint of sophistication. Wear the scarf like an ascot or in a triangular fold. We will just let you see for yourselves.

Father time is a fictional reminder that time is the ultimate luxury. On the third Sunday in June, many of you will be enjoying father time. Do yourself a favor: skip the tie or the worlds best dad mug this year. Give him a gift that symbolizes that his presence is always missed and felt. A Casio Edifice watch is an honorable way to edify your favorite man.
The Gift of Choice.
If time is a luxury, the vessel should match the aesthetic. This sophisticated timepiece - encased in stainless steel - will have many admiring the craftsmanship. With stylish carbon fiber dials, you will notice that functionality doesn't have to be sacrificed for luxury. When designing this watch, Casio had the adventurous man in mind; hence crafting a men's luxury watch that could withstand the everyman's lifestyle. With features like 100m water resistance coupled with a solar power battery, this watch works past your 9-5.
Like the hourglass that father time carries, this luxury watch will be a reminder of a great time spent while functioning as the tool to countdown the moments before a beloved memory.
