Like the "Sweet 16" that marks the coming of age of bimbos with nothing else to think about, but for Mexican girls who are 15-years-old. It was moved to 15 because most are already pregnant or rarin' to be mamasitas.

Necessities:

--$59.99 dress from the family tienda ("Solamente el mejor para mi hija!") that is preferably turquoise, jade, pink, orange, sapphire, or amarillo.
--big hairdo done by Tia Carlita, to include obligatory hanging tendrils
--shopping mall photo shoot with swirly backgrounds and soft lighting, plus a storybook promenade through the halls lookin' all fancy to the staring crowds
--TACOS TACOS TACOS!
"Did you see Maria in her dress? iQué bonita! I wish my padre had spent as many pesos on my quinceñera when I was her age. But I guess she does have 2 kids, so she deserves to look good for a day."
