Blog: Crossroads Style

September 6, 2022 Q&A with Teresa of @teresathuy

Today, we’re happy to introduce you to Teresa of @teresathuy and To The Nines. Learn about how this multi-talented influencer is enjoying a new chapter in Texas, and still finding time to shop at Crossroads.

Welcome, Teresa! Please tell us a little about yourself.
Hello, Crossroads family! My name is Teresa, and I’m a content creator, model, fitness instructor, and host based out of Austin, Texas. I am very new to Austin! In May 2022, I married my best friend in a courthouse and moved here from Houston to be with him.

I grew up with four siblings, and my parents had a knack for finding a good deal on everything. I think that’s why I love Crossroads so much! Every time I visit, I find unique, high-quality secondhand pieces for a great price. It’s such a thrill! I really enjoy putting together fun looks with all of the deals I find.

You’re a model, content creator, fitness instructor, and host of your own show, Spill the Tea. How do you make time for these multiple creative pursuits? 
I have worked 9-to-5 jobs, where I felt unappreciated and didn’t see a chance for growth. Since moving to Houston from Florida in 2015, I’ve learned to try things that spark my interest and that I get excited about. I think it’s important to find and make time for the things that light a fire within you. I want to make an impact and bring joy to others, and I feel alive when I teach a class and get in front of a camera.

We were excited to see you tag your Crossroads finds. How did you discover us?
My sister-in-law is into sustainable fashion, and she raved about finding cute stuff at Crossroads. I went to check it out. I was not disappointed! Crossroads is my favorite shop for secondhand items, and I will stop by when I’m in Houston this weekend!

What has been your best Crossroads find, and how did it match your personal style?
I love everything I’ve gotten, but I think my best Crossroads find is an orange/white plaid Escada wool & silk blazer I got for $37! It fits my bold and bright personal style. I love textures, bright colors, and prints. It has an oversized fit, and I look forward to wearing it this fall with tailored shorts, a crop top, and heels.

You’ve been blogging since 2013! How has the blogging space changed, and what can we expect to see from you next?
Yes! On my blog,, and on social media, I enjoy sharing my favorites, whether it be beauty products, travel tips to cool places, or easy recipes. I like having a space that is mine: my website and blog. You can easily browse blog posts and see my professional work in one space.


I feel there are many avenues for people to learn. Instead of reading about style trends or a recipe, others may opt to watch a YouTube video or Instagram reel. People should expect to find more of the fun content I like to create in video form! I have gotten requests for tutorials and cooking sessions, and I am excited to share these with you!
