Honorary Mexican

We start this new section off with a bang (or its equivalent in tulle yardage). Season 11 of ABC’s Dancing With the Stars is but a faint memory by now, but pro dancer Lacey Schwimmer‘s outfits left an indelible mark. A mix between a rural quinceañera and my aunt Norma (the one who tries to hide her not-so-much-hourglass-but-more-solar-dial body with voluminous “party gear”) the looks made many of my primas say: “Quick get the FunSaver, so I can show it to the seamstress later. That’s just the classy look I want for my wedding gown.”  

After this performance, some kids beat Schwimmer with a stick and demanded candy.

Here’s to you Lacey! Get your brows did with a Sharpie, color your hair in the front yard, and get “Julio” tattooed on your left chichi…you’re one of us now.
