  1. Who is the model for that Torrid collection? She’s gorgeous. Wish I could say the same for the clothes, but I mostly looked at the photos saying “Honey. No.”

  2. Jane-
    Francesca, too, would not wear most of the Torrid clothes herself. But they are marketed to the edgy teenage Big Girl, who, face it, will not find much at Igigi or Liz Claiborne to wear to school. Sometimes Francesca sees something there which makes her think “If Francesca were 15 and had more of an attitude, she would buy this before you could say ‘Goth.'”
