In the fifth edition of our Style Profile series, our very own Terri-Leigh, Style Coach at Fresh Collective Kensington, shares what she does in her “off” hours, her derby lifestyle, and her love of fashion, while featuring some of our fabulous outfits in real life.
Name: Terri-Leigh Holbeche
Occupation: Style Coach at Fresh Collective Kensington
Lifestyle: 9 to 9 and back again!
What’s a typical day like for you?
Full of planning! I have to look at the start of my day at Fresh Collective and where I might be going afterward whether it’s karaoke, trivia club or on a date. Typically, with just one outfit, some accessory options take me easily throughout the day and evening. I’m on the go from sun up to sun down and I love it!
What in your life is really important to you?
Family – and friends; especially the ones that are more like family now – are most important to me. I want to make sure everyone I love gets to have time together. It’s a great recharge for me; an energy boost.
What would you like to be remembered for?
I don’t know if I’d want to have a lasting legacy, but I do want to be remembered for the happiness I bring to the people around me. A smile and wave can do a lot for the heart!
What role does fashion play in your life?
Fashion is part of me. I find it in everything I do. How am I presenting myself as a Style Coach at Fresh Collective? How am I presenting myself as an authority on the flat-track? (I’m a Roller Derby Official.) It is how I carry myself when I walk out the door to coming home at night.
What do you love about shopping at Fresh Collective?
Supporting our designers is a major reason why I love Fresh Collective. I know I can be out in a crowd and noticed for the unique and intelligent design of the pieces I am wearing, because our designers take so much care in making these decisions. And, I love that I can chat up our shop to everyone I meet!
What do you have that you want to promote?
I am a Roller Derby Official and my league, Hammer City Roller Girls, is entering into their 9th season. Our Season Opener is May 3rd. We come from all walks of life (just like our fabulous customers!). I want to celebrate in the fact that we are all different shapes, sizes, ages but everyone is an amazing human being, capable of truly captivating things!
Is there anything else we should know about you?
I have a penchant for high-waisted undies that show off my curves, I can be found singing at karaoke weekly, and I like to dance to great tunes from the 50s & 60s (and a little Wilson Phillips too).
