By: Farrah Estrella

Hello October!! or should I say Pinktober?..Not only it is Fall season one of my favorite seasons but October is also Breast Cancer Awareness month, a month where we can give back and support this great cause.

Every year in October many retailers create merchandise specifically to support Breast Cancer and Lane Bryant is one of them. This year's collection includes more items than ever, titled "The Combat Cancer Collection" it features camo prints, lots of beautiful pink underwear, jewelry, t-shirts, pajamas and even socks.

10% of the items purchased will go directly to the American Cancer Society and they have a goal of $560,000 that they want to raise. 

Check out out some of our favorites pieces from the collection below and stay tuned to my blog this month as I will be doing the Breast Cancer Walk for the 4th year in a row and for all things pink.

Five fabulous plus size bloggers over a size 20

By: Farrah Estrella

When you are over a size 20 and you are looking for fashion inspiration just like every other girl in the world and you open a fashion magazine and don’t see anybody over a size 2 in it,  it is very discouraging. Who can plus size women over a size 20 look up to for inspiration? Plus Size Bloggers. 

Many brands and magazines are afraid to use a plus model over a size 14 because they may have a little tummy, some jiggle and it might be a little bit too real for them. Well, for most plus size women that is our reality. We have big tummies, we have fat arms, we have some jiggle and that is ok. This is why plus size fashion bloggers are making such a huge impact in the plus size community and have such huge followings. They are being real, they are living their truth and looking fabulous while at it. They are inspiration to other plus size women.

Here are five plus size bloggers over a size 20 that I admire and I look up to for fashion, style tips and overall fabulousness.

Garnerstyle as most people know her, is a size 26 fashionista living in Los Angeles. Her pear shape is very similar to mine and I admire her overall looks especially her celebrity style looks. 

2-Jessica Kane of Life&
Jessica is body positive advocate and founder of Skorch Magazine, she is also a size 26. Her style is very classy and she says that she has an apple shape.

3-Manfattan of
This Manhattan based 6 foot 3 stunning beauty looks great in anything she wears. Maybe is her gorgeous hair, skin or her height, we love that she is super tall.

4-Reah Norman of
In addition to fashion blogger, Reah is a fashion stylist who specializes in the plus industry. She is also the executive fashion director for Plus Model Magazine.

6-Marcy Cruz of Fearlessly Just Me
Marcy is a fierce Latina and blog editor for Plus Model Magazine, the #1 magazine in the world dedicated to plus size fashion.

New product alert: Xpandasox® socks for wide calves

By: Farrah Estrella


Hola Estrellitas!!

While at Full Figured Fashion Week 2015 this past Summer, I was introduced to a brand new product that I want to share with you all, it is called Xpandasox®.

Xpandasox are socks that fit everybody including people like me with wide calves. Founded by Sharon Thorp, her idea for Xpandasox came out of her listening to customer’s feedback that socks sometimes fit to tight or rolled down our legs when you have wide calves. You won't' have that problem with Xpandasox, these socks feature their trademark “Xpandapanel” that stretches up to 24 inches in the calf area and even though Sharon’s idea was initially conceived for people with wider or athletic calves, she soon realized that Xpandasox® are also ideal for anyone with leg swelling due to frequent travel, pregnancy or health conditions. They also stretch to accommodate casts and braces, and are ideal for use with sock aids.

Another thing that I like about the company is that for every pair of Xpandasox® purchased, the company will be depositing 1 pair into their "Sock Bank”. Socks are one of the most asked item in homeless shelters in the USA, and they have partnered with organizations that will withdraw socks from their sock bank to give to those in need,  what a great idea!! Personally, I love supporting companies that give back to the community.

The price of the socks is from $16 to $18, they come in a variety of colors and they even have a unisex collection, because men have wide calves too.

Have you tried Xpandasox? Let me know what you think of the product, I would love to get some feedback from you, leave your comments below.
