Quinceañera dress

In Attire

  My object is a dress and this dress has been passed down from my great grandmother, to my grandmother, to my mother. This dress is currently in Mexico. When I went to visit my grandmother in   Mexico I saw the dress. My grandmother has it stored in a house my mom had built for us in Mexico. My aunt (her sister) sent me a picture of her in her dress. 
 This reminds her of her quince and says she gets so many memories in that picture and will work hard so I can experience what she experienced the day of her Quinceanera. This has been a Mexican tradition for many years. This tradition is for young girls turning 15. This means they are growing into adulthood and that they become a young woman. This event is special to most girls because it’s a big celebration and a big part of their culture.
