27 Quinceañeras Who Didn’t Settle For Basic Themes

Quinceañera dresses are meant to symbolize purity as a young woman — err, who are we kidding? Nowadays, we just want them to be Instagram-worthy. #Slay

1. White quince dresses used to be as basic as sipping a pumpkin spice latte while wearing Uggs. She took it to the next level.

Let’s all have a moment of silence for the white lace dresses. #RIP

2. Most of us had photo shoots in the park, these girls have waterfall backdrops.

Because #mermaidlife is apparently the goal for these fifteen-year-olds. And, um, most 14 year olds back in the day would’ve gotten a chanclazo if they walked out in a bustier.

3. We understand wanting your quince outfits to stand out, but this is something else…

Forget the fringe skirts for a cumbia surprise dance, these damas thought they were Pitbull’s backup dancers.

4. This quinceañera lived up to the tropical theme.

A Community In Oregon Showed A Taco Truck Owner That They Don’t Just Love Her Food

This is Pepe’s Tacos in Estacada, Oregon.

Looks like a regular taco truck right? Well, it is, and it isn’t.

Pepe’s Tacos is one of the few Mexican food options in Estacada, a small town with a population of less than 3,ooo people. And the people of Estacada love Pepe’s Tacos.

So when loyal customers found this message taped to Pepe’s truck…

“Pepes tacos will be closed temporarily due to family medical issues, sorry for the inconvenience and thank you for your support! Prayers are much needed… Sanchez Family.”

The people of Estacada opened up their hearts in support of the Sanchez family.

Jose Sanchez opened up Pepe’s Tacos with his wife, Lorena Serrano, more than 15 years ago. The two met in their native Jalisco, Mexico, and moved to Estacada after visiting a cousin who lived in Oregon. After noticing the lack of Mexican food in their neighborhood Sanchez and Serrano opened Pepe’s Tacos. Now their sons, Jose Jr. and Checho also work with their parents.

Not only did they wish Jose Sanchez a speedy recovery, they covered the Pepe’s Tacos truck with dollar bills.

Joe Schwab, who helped organize the donation drive, said the truck is iconic to the community.

He told KGW NBC News, “This is a tight community where people do know each other’s names and do know their neighbors and it’s no surprise to me at all that there’s this outpouring for a core member of our community.”

Here’s what it looked like when they were done:

How much did they raise? According to Schwab, the community pitched in with around $3,000. A GoFundMe page has raised more than $6,000.

When the Sanchez siblings learned about the donation drive, they tricked their mother into visiting the truck. Once they pulled up to the lot, Lorena Serrano realized what was happening.
