By: Farrah Estrella 



Hola Estrellitas!!

I had the privileged to be a judge yesterday at the 1st Annual Miss Florida Princess Pageant that was held here in Tampa, Florida. I wore this really nice green lace top from the Lela Rose for Lane Bryant Collection and one of my favorite pants, the cigarette pants from the Isabel Toledo for Lane Bryant Collection.

I received many compliments on the outfit and I really felt very comfortable in it. I wanted to wear something elegant but not to over the top as it was during the day. I felt sophisticated and elegant, what do you guys think?.

Rebel said about the collaboration "I've had a 'torrid' affair with buying clothes all my life. I've never really felt like there's a brand out there in the plus size world that is creating cool stuff that fits well and is good quality yet affordable. It's really only been in the last few years that I've seen companies try. So it was awesome to team with Torrid, who I think are doing such a great job in making plus size fashion relevant and dope. I've been loving designing the clothes for my capsule collection. I've been putting my unique style and personal loves into the clothing and literally can't wait for the collection to launch!".
