This past weekend my family and I held a traditional mexican quinceanera for my cousin Ayleen. This tradition is a very important one in my culture. It is a coming of age party for a celebration of a girl’s fifteenth birthday and her transition from childhood to adulthood, typically involving a mass and of course like I stated before, followed by a party. It is one of the most exciting parts of our lives beside our wedding. It includes a ball gown, a crown and an honor court. You are the princess for the day and it’s all in all a magical day (I wish I could go back to mine) hehe.
It was so much fun to have a makeup artist and hair stylist at our house getting all of my aunts and cousins ready. We had never had that before and it was a party before the party. Makeup and Hair by Emily is the one to go to for all of your beauty needs! She made us all look and feel beautiful. Including with my dress from the website Fame and Partners paired with my vintage Chanel chain belt. They worked with me personally to customize my own color and shipped it to me right on time from Australia.
I didn’t take too many photos of my outfit just because I was running around like a crazy person, greeting everyone and making sure my cousin had the magical day she deserved. But, I hope you enjoy the few fun photos I took of the night including my beautiful cousin and her amazing gown!
