Quinceanera Dress - Shop & History

 Hi dear,
in today's post I want to tell you about a type of occasion dresses: Quinceanera dress.
Who among us has not wanted to be a princess and maybe wear a beautiful dress bulky like these?
These images are some of my favorite dresses that I found on the site and you can find really many to choose from and even just watching and daydreaming :)
I leave you the link:
But behind these clothes there is a history, a tradition that I want to write:

The tradition of having a quinceañera party to celebrate a Latina girl's 15th birthday Began in colonial Mexico. At that time, girls were not allowed to dance in public before they were 15 years old. 

Naturally, girls were eager to dance as soon as possible, Because dancing was a key part of adult social life. 
Families started holding lavish parties on Their daughter's 15th birthday in order to give them a chance to dance and Be Recognized As an adult member of society.
  15 is no longer regarded as "adult" age. Most Western societies place adulthood at 18 or 21 years old.
After her party, the quinceañera's family may see her as a woman and give her more responsibilities, but the larger world will not yet consider her an adult.
In colonial Mexico, wealth was a huge part of a family's social status. As a result, it was very important to throw a fancy party.
Only the best would do for the quinceañera: an opulent handmade gown, new gold jewelry, a lavish cake.
 Generally, if a family could not afford to throw a splendid party, they were not accepted into high society. This was a way for other families to respect them, and the quinceañera's chances of landing a "good" husband were significantly reduced.
Today, quinceañera parties run the gamut of taste and expense. While some families rent banquet halls and throw fancy parties, others celebrate the quinceañera more simply, with a family party under the stars in a cousin's field.
The quinceanera party is no longer the ticket into high society. Instead, it is a celebration of womanhood shared by all social classes.
It is importnat to celebrate this day with family members and to have a special gathering including friends and for many, your vestido de quinceanera or quinceanera dress, invitations and reception. This all depends on the family tradition and budget.
Although the historical meaning of the quinceañera as a girl's introduction into high society is no longer relevant, the deeper meaning of coming of age and being welcomed into an adult role in the family by parents and godparents is still deeply relevant. Quinceanera history evolved naturally and it remains a main celebration amongst Hispanic women and Latinas overall.

Hope you like this post :)
Have a nice day!
