Maturing, Without the Stench of Jean Nate

No matter what Bonne Bell says, the true transition to womanhood doesn’t start with Dr Pepper Lip Smackers, it starts with a quinceañera. And when it comes to quinceañeras, it’s all about the dress. It’s pretty much the most important purchase, like, ever. Except for that other “big day,” but we’ll get to that in a sentence or two. When you need the best, you need variety. And there’s no better variety than the Latino Bridal & Quince Girl Expo. They offer up mini makeovers, beauty tips and big-time prizes. All while showcasing more than 200 vendors including dress shops (duh), photographers, party planners, hairstylists and more. You’ll find everything you need to put the upside down exclamation point in front of the big, or bigger day. Come see it all on noon to 5 p.m. Sunday at Dallas Market Hall. Tickets are $6 online or $8 at the door. Buy them and learn more at
