Here Are 22 Spots To Take Instagram Pictures With Selena Murals

Instagram walls are something like a hidden treasure. They’re hard to come by, but sometimes you stumble upon them when you least expect it. Luckily for Selena Quintanilla fans, we rounded up 22 of the most beautiful murals paintings of the singer. After this, we’re sure you’ll want to go on a Selena mural tour.

1. Selena’s famous purple jumpsuit covers a wall in Dallas, Texas.

If there’s one outfit that deserves to be immortalized on the wall of a building, it’s the jumpsuit Selena wore during her last performance at the Houston Astrodome in 1995. The beautiful painting of the Tex-Mex singer is accompanied by Selena’s equally iconic signature, which makes for two photo ops.

2. The iconic “Amor Prohibido” album art was recreated for a mural in Dallas.

With a galactic twist, artist Ponchaveli recreated Selena’s “Amor Prohibido” album cover. Selena’s face was shaded in her favorite color to match the celestial background.

3. Stenciled Selena lives on in Houston, Texas.

Selena’s signature hairdo was long, black hair that reached her waist. In the early 90s, however, Selena rocked a short bob, reminding us that the queen could do no wrong. This look was recreated in stencil art in a wall in H-town.

4. We’re left with recuerdos of Selena’s perfect smile on a wall in Plaza de la Raza in Los Angeles.

More like, we’re blessed. This beautiful DĂ­a de Los Muertos-esque painting is a take on the famous picture of Selena in her tour bus where she’s flashing her million dollar smile. The Polaroid photograph is surrounded with cempasĂșchil flowers which are used to decorate floats and altars for DDLM.

5. Local Los Angeles artist, Sand One turned Selena into one of her iconic big-lashed dolls.

Sand One’s work is easily recognizable for her dolls that have very curvy figures, bold lashes and big features. The Latina artist has covered dozens of walls in Los Angeles. It only made sense that she made a Selena version of her dolls.

6. This mural reminds us that Selena did the sailor hat first.

Sailor hats are very popular these days, but this painting outside of the Hija de tu Madres pop-up shop in Boyle Heights, California is a reminder that Selena was a trendsetter way before her time. This painting captures the feels Selena would get (and give) while she was on stage performing. And you gotta love the metallics on her bustier, mic and cap.

7. Selena, always in our hearts… And on this wall.

After her death, Selena’s parents decided to keep her recording studio open and turn it into a museum for her fans to visit. Not only was the inside refurbished into a photogenic space, but the outside was also painted with this sweet message.

8. Speaking of the Selena Museum, here’s a closer look at one of the walls made to up your Instagram feed.

Karina’s caption is perfect. This wall (and every other Selena wall) definitely deserves its own post. If this painting looks familiar, you’ve probably seen it all over the Selena MAC Cosmetics collection.

9. An angelic, makeup-free Selena graces this wall in Houston, Texas.

This wall was inspired by Selena’s 1995 album “Dreaming of You” where Selena is wearing very light makeup and in front of a very pale background. For this mural, the artist decided to add a special touch by adding the flower that reminds every one of Selena — a rose.

10. Passersby can’t help but stop in front of this stunning painting in San Antonio, Texas.

Based on the nude makeup and voluminous hair, this also looks like it was inspired from the “Dreaming of You” album. But how beautiful is the detail on her skin? Can’t. Stop. Staring.

11. Someone created the most fitting LoterĂ­a card for one of the greatest singers to ever live.

If Selena was turned into a LoterĂ­a card, hers would likely say La Cantante. This gigantic card was spray-painted onto a wall in Austin, Texas. We think someone should create an entire series of these wall paintings to complete a whole LoterĂ­a board.

12. This wall in Austin is full of icons, but one stands out to us.

We think the artist spend a little more time on Selena’s portrait because she definitely stands out from the rest of the people pictured. 

13. Selena glows at this laser tag mini golf center in San Antonio.

What a surprise to find the glow of Selena illuminate a mini golf wall.

14. Selena and her signature rose make for the perfect photo opp.

Fun fact: this mural was created by a tattoo artist.

15. Stenciled Selena shines in Houston.

We love how we can see hints of Japanese art shine through.

16. Mauricio Ramirez turned Selena into a prism goddess.

Everything from the colors to the pose is perfection.

17. If you’re in Fresno, Calif., you can pose with Selena in front of this mural.

An icon indeed whose lipstick perfectly matches her rose.

18. A comic-like Selena stands in Echo Park.

Something tells us this is probably one of the most popular Instagram locations in the neighborhood.

19. Another stenciled Selena lives in Austin.

This is a more pop type of art that uses vibrant colors. We love how the artist created Selena’s captain hat with her signature. Super cool!

20. A spraypainted Selena welcomes tattoo clients outside a shop.

In case you don’t know what tattoo you want to get, this giant Selena mural serves as inspiration.

21. The caption sums up this floral Selena mural.

Because we have to agree that this is one of the best Selena murals we’ve seen.

22. This beautiful mural illustrates Selena’s signature beauty traits.

Physically, Selena was recognized by her full lips, thick hair and acrylic nails — all which are beautifully captured on this brick wall. Not included: that cute little carcancha.

Babies Trying Pan Dulce For the First Time is the Instagram Content We Didn’t Know We Needed

There are few things more delicioso than pan dulce. Whether it’s served with cafĂ© con leche or grabbed as a quick breakfast indulgence, it really is the perfect treat. This variety of sweet bread has become a big part of the Latinidad.

When we’re talking pan dulce, conchas, puerquitos, orejas and empanadas are just a few of the mouthwatering options. No matter which sweet bread is your fav, you can relive your first taste over and over again with every fresh bite.

Thanks to social media, we can also see the adorableness that comes with baby’s first sweet bread. Hashtags like #BabysFirstConcha or #BabySweetBread are where to go to find cute pics of babies taking their first bites of sweet pan dulce.

Here are some super cute pictures of babies eating their first pan dulce.

1. Enjoy your matching concha, preciosa.

Just like the color pink, conchas are perfect for every occasion. This little preciosa doesn’t hold back as she takes a mighty chomp out of her pan dulce. From the looks of it, this first bite won’t be her last. Enjoy, mija.

2. Matching concha costume = GOALS.

Instagram / @gr_twins

Pan dulce-themed birthday parties are now a thing — and we really wish they were back when we were kids. What better way to celebrate your special day than to dress like your favorite food. That frosting-covered face confirms how awesome pan dulce birthdays can be.

3. You don’t need teeth to enjoy pan dulce.

Instagram / @nadyaaglae

Not having teeth doesn’t have to stop you from enjoying the goodness that is pan dulce. If you’re a babe taking your first bite, just working that sweet treat with the gums you’ve been given is good enough. Just imagine how much pan dulce this cutie will take down once he actually gets those baby teeth in.

4. Just a little nibble for now.

Instagram / @ainsley_belle_511

While some babies might go mouth-first into their conchas, this little lady prefers to nibble. In her matching concha onesie, this sweetie is more proper with her first bite. However, once she gets a taste, there’s no doubt this little conchita will go pan dulce-crazy.

5. That smile says she knows this is going to be good.

Instagram / @lapasteleriadesofia

Look at the awe on her face. Look at that little grin. This baby knows she’s got something special in front of her. This pic was taken before the big chomp but that look on her face tells us it’s coming soon.

6. Nothing beats twinning with your pan dulce.

Instagram / @gr_twins

Can you really claim conchas are your favorite food if you don’t regularly dress up like them. Twinning with your favorite pan dulce is an awesome look no matter what day it is. Top it off with a concha cake and you’ve got a party.

7. Pan dulce: the perfect party food.

Instagram / @shopoliposa

Piñatas and decorations are all well and good, but a real party needs one more ingredient — pan dulce. This little lady knows what’s up as she snacks on her vanilla concha. What’s even better is the absolutely gorgeous photoshoot she had to immortalize her first bite.

8. If you are what you eat, eat lots of conchas

Instagram / @kaylaa_baylaa1

Have you ever seen a cuter conchita in your life? The answer is obviously no. This giggly little sweet bread is just as lovable as the pan dulce that she’s dressed as. Of course, her happy face could have something to do with all that colorful sugar.

9. Sweet like pan dulce.

Instagram / @madamemariposa

Those sweet, soulful eyes and that face buried into a soft concha are guaranteed to make you say, “Awwww.” This adorable shot doesn’t need any extra props or colorful backgrounds to make us swoon. If you don’t have baby fever yet, you probably do now.

10. Waiting for the sugar to kick in like…

Instagram / @normlone

Her face is telling us a lot. Namely that this little chula is lost in the flavor of her delicious pan dulce. We can admit that this state of pre-sugar high is super relatable. At least baby will be able to enjoy a nice nap after that sugar hits.

11. When you can’t wait to get home to start digging in.

Instagram / @aandylove

Sometimes you can’t wait to get home from the panderia before you start digging into the pan dulce. This sweetheart didn’t even wait to get out of her car seat to start snacking. Also, did anyone else notice that this concha is as big as her head? That’s a big project she’s working on.

12. Conchas are serious business.

Instagram / @lamonarcabakery

Although this little preciosa has a serious look on her face, those puffed out cheeks give away her secret. They’re stuffed with yummy concha. She’s obviously contemplating which piece of pan dulce she should take down next.

13. Go ahead and take a big bite, mija!

Instagram / @tres.marias.and.mama

For her “Coco”-themed birthday party, this little cutie has everything from flower crowns to guitars to complete that mood. Of course that means she also has the ultimate treat, pan dulce. We wonder if she waited to blow out the candles before she dug in.

14. We know that feeling, baby girl.

Instagram / @rlocreativedesign

That feeling when the pan dulce hits that sweet craving just right. This little cutie looks like she’s experiencing just a bit of euphoria with that first bite. The matching concha tee and pink tutu really complete this adorable look.

15. Her face says it all.

Instagram / @little_mia_sanchez

As perfect as pan dulce is, it’s also pretty messy. However, that mess is just proof that you’re thoroughly enjoying that sweet treat. This baby isn’t at all worried about the sugary mess on her face; she’s got her eyes on the prize.

16. Never too young for pan.

Instagram / @mrs.sotelo.official_

While many babies have pan dulce parties for their first or second birthdays, this little lady just couldn’t wait. As a celebration for her nine month b-day, she not only had a taste of delicious pan dulce, she also had a little photoshoot to commemorate it. After all, you’re never too young for this sweetness.

17. Now that’s a mouthful!

Instagram / @truegrumpybaby

Some babies nibble, some take a practice bite before they jump in. This baby isn’t afraid to take the plunge and go at it with a big ol’ bite. We hope he approaches every challenge in his life with the same bravery and commitment.

18. La Princesa de Conchas.

Instagram / @concha_bunny

First of all, we LOVE this look. Secondly, this little princesa looks absolutely in love with that sweet bread. No doubt, this is the beginning of a beautiful relationship between conchas and this little cutie pie.

19. The look of true love.

Instagram / @iscjuanita

This sweet smile can only mean one thing: this little one is in love with pan dulce. The sweet simplicity of her first bites is what this list is all about. It’s a reminder of what pan dulce is all about: sugar, bread, and all things good in this world.

Forever 21 Debuts New Line Of Selena Merch ‘The White Rose’

Forever 21 Debuts New Line Of Selena Merch ‘The White Rose’

A brand new line of Selena Quintanilla merch has arrived at Forever 21, and we’re all feeling muy excited.

The popular clothing retail store debuted “The White Rose” collection Thursday, with T-shirts, pants, hoodies and accessories celebrating La Reina de Tejano available in its stores and online. Prices range from $3.90 to $78.

On Friday, the late icon’s sister Suzette gave a sneak peak of the collection when she shared a video of herself sporting a hoodie with the “Como La Flor’s” singer’s face on it.

“Trying super hard to look cooollll in this new Forever 21 X SELENA hoodie,” she said.

Suzette, who famously played the drums in the Quintanilla family band Selena y Los Dinos, also attended a F21 meet-and-greet event at a Cerritos, Calif. location, where fans swarmed the shop in their Selena tops excited to take pictures.

“So much love and fun meeting everyone today,” Suzette wrote on Instagram after the event. “Saying thank you just doesn’t seem to really sum up how grateful I felt to receive all this love I felt today.”

But while most people are celebrating the new Selena-inspired gear and accessories, others have expressed disappointment, both in the brand and the Quintanilla family.

As for Forever 21, most of the items in the collection aren’t available in plus-size. According to the Revelist, of the 94 pieces, just six have curvy offerings, including graphic tees, one that’s not available yet, and plus-size jeans that are web-exclusive, and anyone with meat on their hips and legs knows how difficult it is to find a pair that fits, making in-store fittings necessary. Even more, while straight-size items include several crop tops, all the plus-size tops are full-coverage.

Several women of size expressed their disappointment in the collection’s lack of plus-size offerings, and Suzette, who also identifies as plus-size, weighed in.

“Hi, I totally understand but there is a couple shirts that are come in our sizes,” Suzette responded. “I really hope I can have the opportunity again to create a collection with a [lot] more for us plus size girls.”


Neither she nor her family, however, has responded to the second critique of the collaborative collection: That the Quintanilla family decided to work with a fast-fashion brand that is famous for sweatshop-like factories and animal abuse.

On Instagram, owner of the Etsy shop Barbarawarbara, called out the Quintanilla family’s ethics and double standards. The designer, who has created pins, pouches and shirts celebrating the singer, common among Etsy shops, revealed that the Quintanilla family threatened to sue her for inexpensive merch while teaming up with a big brand that has a troubling history, particularly for exploiting workers of color.

The debut comes almost two weeks before the 24th anniversary of the Tejana icon’s death.
