Katherine O’Neil and I met just over a year ago when I joined Arbonne as a consultant. Aside from my awesome career as Fresh Collective’s Regional Manager, I have my own Arbonne business and I love doing both!
From the moment I met her at our region meeting I knew I wanted to be just like her! Her energy and enthusiasm is infectious. Katherine has a way of bringing out the leader in you and making you feel so special. She is someone who I just love to spend time with as she is so inspirational.
We just had our Global Training Conference in Vegas this past week and it was my honour to help her find the perfect dress for her to lead her training in. Katherine lead a training in Vegas to over 12500 consultants so it was important that she looked the part.
– Jane Haselgrove, Regional Manager at Fresh Collective
Name: Katherine O’Neil
Title: Independent Consultant and National Vice President with Arbonne Intl.
Occupation: Mom, Entrepreneur, Wealth Creation Coach, Wellness Educator
Lifestyle: on the go with the appropriate dash of daily belly laughs and quarterly travel fixes – I love my passport 🙂
What’s a typical day like for you? Mornings are the mad dash getting the kids to school, then I fit in a workout and really start my day. The rest depends – it’s a mixed bag of coffee meetings with clients, coaching calls with my business team, volunteering at school, or reading a book on the couch in the afternoon sun with a Chai Tea.
Dress: Kaleidoscope Dress- Mandala Design, $128
Bag: Melissa Bag by Taska, $129
Style coach notes: Katherine is vivacious and just glows with an inner beauty. Her life is busy so comfy dresses like this one make getting dressed quick and switching gears easy. This dress doesn’t sacrifice style though, with its bold print, fitted bodice and flirty keyhole opening at the neck.
What in your life is really important to you? My family is everything to me. They are the driving force behind all that I do. My friends keep me grounded – I love how it doesn’t matter if it was two days or two years since I’ve spoken with some, there’s a connectedness that’s always there.
What would you like to be remembered for? Having played full out and for leaving people better than how I found them. Everyone has an invisible sign that says make me feel important.
Dress: Destination Dress – Diane Kroe, $225
Necklace: The Simples by BurfurtART, $38
Style Coach notes: Katherine travels a lot and this convertible dress is perfect. It can be worn several different ways from this sassy halter style to a look that’s all business.
What role does fashion play in your life? It’s fun! I love colour no matter the season so I use it to express my mood. My Parisian grandmother used to always say that a woman’s best piece was the confidence that came from within. It’s all about how you wear the clothes and not how they wear you. That said, there’s nothing like a flattering cut and amazing fabric that hugs you in just the right spots. I am also a sucker for an amazing pair of boots. Now if I can only master the different ways to tie a scarf!

Dress: Drape 14 Dress- Studio Fresh, $179
Necklace: Ch-ch-ch-chains – BurfurtART, $65
Style Coach notes: Katherine’s confidence shines through in this artistic-looking dress with a loose fit, slouchy pockets and abstract print. The shorter length shows off her fab legs, and works perfectly with the slouchy fit. The proportions of this dress are just right for her figure and her lifestyle.
What do you love about shopping at Fresh Collective? What’s not to love? Everything there is unique and made to not only look but feel fabulous on you. The colours, prints, versatility….I could go on. As someone who loves to travel, these clothes are your suitcase’s best friend.

And the people working there are fantastic – they get you to try things that you would never think of and voila, a new favourite 🙂
Dress: Hourglass dress – Obakki, $280
Necklace:The Simples by BurfurtART, $38
Shoes are her own
Style Coach notes: Here’s a bold number that suits Katherine to a tee. The curves of the colour blocking accentuate her figure, and wearing something this graphic gets a woman noticed as a confidence leader.
What do you have that you want to promote? I left a successful career in the corporate world 5 years ago – something I never imagined myself doing but I was so tired of juggling between family, career and more – and am now an Independent Consultant and National Vice President with Arbonne International. I have an incredible Health & Wellness business that has allowed me to fit my work around my family and my personal priorities and not the other way around. I love getting to create a life by design that is full of positivity and the best is showing others how to do the same, educating people on not just their physical but financial health as well. It’s all about creating more choices and freedom to truly leave a legacy for your loved ones, for causes that matter to you and to live in the moment with abundance. Between the friendships, fun and the growth, I wouldn’t trade it for the world. www.katherineoneil.myarbonne.ca
