Hola Estrellitas!!

My favorite item for today are these cute jeans from Ashley Stewart. No need to tell you how I feel about stars, Love them!!..lol..of course. 

I have to confess that I have never tried Ashley Stewart jeans before and I am looking forward to buying them to give them a try for the very first time. I have heard great things from other bloggers about the fit of their jeans and their dress pants in general but because we don't have an Ashley Stewart store in Tampa and I am not a big online shopper, I haven't try them yet but I will. I am actually buying them online. 

What do you guys think of the jeans, yeyy or nayy? Have you tried their jeans before? Give me some feedback, let's chat!!.

OOTD Stars Sweater Dress by Eloquii

By: Farrah Estrella


Estrella Fashion Report- OOTD- Sweater Dress- Stars

Hola Estrellitas!!

Today, I hosted the Tampa leg of the Full Figured Fashion Week 2016 Casting Tour and I wanted to share with you guys what I wore to the event.

I saw this dress on the Eloquii website a few weeks ago and I knew right there and then that I had to have it. You guys know how much I love stars, right? lol..Another thing that made me get it was that I have never worn a sweater dress before. 

I decided to wear a red shoe with it to add a pop of color and the jacket because that is how they styled their lookbook model, with a jacket over her shoulder and I thought that was kind of cool.



 What do you guys think about this look? Leave your comments below.

Attention all Fendi aficionados, the Karlito Fendi bags are now available at Neiman Marcus. 

Named after the creative director of the brand Karl Lagerfeld and made to his liking, the bags have become a huge on Instagram. There is also a pouch bag, a charm and a strap for your handbag that are sold separately. I think that these are really cute bags, get yours while you can because they will surely sell out.
