I first met Kit back in February at our Diane Kroe launch party. Her sense of style and her outgoing personality made made for the perfect combo for a fun evening.
Kit and I met through her friend and loyal Fresh Collective customer Pip who brought her to the party.
Kit fell in love with the new Destination Dress by Diane Kroe and requested it be made for her in green to go with her new pink Miz Mooz shoes. She refers to this outfit as her “watermelon” outfit. I knew from that moment on she and I would get along just fine.
Whether it be in the store or our frequent meetings on the subway or streetcar, an encounter with Kit always brightens my day. I look forward to many more special moments with a wonderful lady!

Name: Kit Boulter
Occupation: actor, singer, Jack-of-all-trades
Lifestyle: busy and ever-changing from week to week. I have to be very flexible and comfortable whether I’m rushing from auditions, volunteering at schools, heading to a swim or dressing up for a night out. I like to have a versatile wardrobe for every occasion.
Style Coach Notes: This is the dress Kit ordered from Diane Kroe at the launch party. This colour is great with her vivacious personality and the fit shows off how fun and playful she is. I remember her calling this her “watermelon outfit” because she had the perfect pair of shoes to go with it. The whole look makes her shine like the star she is.
What’s a typical day like for you? Depending on what projects I have on the go, I get to wake up and usually enjoy a nice morning before heading out to a rehearsal. However, I have to be comfortable enough to then switch into nanny-mode after school, where I tutor and cook – I wear an apron if anything is going to get too messy. If I’m not working with the kids, I’ve also taken on jobs in the theatre working with costuming and props. I love helping shows come together, even if I’m not performing onstage. I’ve been kept busy on weekends with cabarets, show times and trying to keep up with my super-talented friends.
What in your life is really important to you? I love my wife, my cat and my family, and a lot of what I do is to support them and make them proud of me. Oh, and shoes.
Style Coach Notes: This outfit takes comfy clothes to a whole new level. When Kit is relaxing at home with her wife this is the perfect way to still look good and feel comfortable without going to those trusty sweat pants. The bold print of the skirt keeps in theme with her personality and she can easily toss on her Miz Mooz shoes and head out for drinks with friends.
What would you like to be remembered for? I’d like to be remembered as a strong, classy woman. I’m not afraid to speak my mind and would like to be known for standing up for people who haven’t got a voice and for living what I believe in.
What role does fashion play in your life? I dress for myself, and love that feeling of stepping out in something that makes me feel confident and fresh. I love colour, and mixing modern accents with classic silhouettes and designs.
Style Coach Notes: Every girl needs a dress that they can feel comfortable and fun in, and this dress was perfect for Kit. The print was just the right amount of fun to go with her personality and the dress is great for her life on the go! She can throw it on and head to an audition and head home and relax and still look and feel fabulous.
What do you love about shopping at Fresh Collective? I love finding signature pieces there–the dress that you can do no wrong in; the shoes that hug your feet; the belt that everyone notices. There’s always something eye-catching and intriguing to find.
Style Coach Notes: Stunning, just stunning in this dress! This dress is great for Kit; it’s dressy and commands attention. Kit has paired it with her own patterned tights which give the dress a little more drama and she’s ready for a night out on the town or to accept an academy award! This dress can easily go from day to night and matches her outgoing and creative personality. I love that Kit’s not afraid to take risks and mix up two different patterns!
What do you have that you want to promote? I’m trading my stilettos for sideburns in the Lower Ossington’s production of Hedwig and the Angry Inch playing till May 24th. I’m so excited to be part of this rock and roll classic that deals with gender identity , sexuality and discovering personal freedom.
