Name: Emilia Farrace
Occupation: Entrepreneur! (Owner of Simply Elaborate Creative, A Girl Boss life + Mealspirations)
Lifestyle: I have a laidback lifestyle with a penchant for beautiful things and for things that make me feel like life is beautiful. It’s laidback in “look” but full in action.
What’s a typical day like for you? Meeting new people, current clients, my business partner, people, entrepreneurs, or designing websites, putting the finishing touches to websites, communicating with my team, members of my friends and family – writing! I’m on the go almost always, on subways, streetcars, going from one end of the city to the other. But at the end of the day, cozy in the Annex with my cat, partner and knitting. Yes, I knit.
What in your life is really important to you? My voice, my ability to take a stand and inspire others. I think often we need to help each other, find confidence in each other when sometimes it’s wavering in ourselves. Isn’t it nice if we could all find a little time to share inspiring things with one another?

What would you like to be remembered for? I’d like to be remembered for my compassion and determination to fulfill promises. I want to be inspiring and help others achieve their dreams – help to develop the strategy and ideas to get there.
What role does fashion play in your life? I wear clothes every day! So they’re pretty important My mood for the day really depends on what I’m wearing to the office. I’m in a co-sharing work environment so I don’t really have the same constrictions that others in an office may have. But when I want a really, professional, productive day – you’ll be surprised on how getting ready in the morning really develops the mood for the rest of the day.

What do you love about shopping at Fresh Collective? I love how the clothes fit me. I love how they’re fun, yet professional and when I try something on – I am actually amazed when I’m staring at myself in the mirror. I also love everyone who works there. Doesn’t matter which location, people are always so eager to help in a non-pushy way which really makes the experience. I feel like I’m shopping in a friend’s closet.
What do you have that you want to promote?
We have a new offering at Simply Elaborate: Brand Development Strategy + Website Review. To celebrate the FRESH (get it?!) offering, I’m extending a free 60 minute consultation to five people who know that their presence online is just as important as the one they make in a physical meeting.

Is there anything else we should know about you? I am a person who loves meeting new people who are inspiring and determined to go after what they want in their lives. I connect with people and see their dream and help them go after it! Currently, I am creating an online network of mentors and mentees for women on the brink of their professional careers looking for more guidance, advice and inspiration as they take the next step. Connect if you think this might be an interesting community to get involved in.
