She's lovely, I can see why you grabbed her!

If she was sold as an adult, then she's most likely around five to six months old. That's when bettas tend to be at their prime in terms of looks- old enough to be colored up, young enough that their fins haven't started dragging them down- and old enough that the breeder has decided which ones they'll keep for the next generation. Most stores do tend to sell females younger than males, I have noticed, because you don't have to wait for long fins to grow out. So she may grow a bit larger more now that she's home with you, but I wouldn't expect her to double in size or anything drastic like that.

Her colors may be pale from stress, or she may just have a "faded" look to her pattern. Let her settle in for a couple of days and she'll most likely be showing her full colors, whatever they turn out to be. :)
