Glittering high heels, sparkling tiaras and brightly-colored tulle ball gowns now fill the once-vacant storefront.
With formal dresses one of the top sellers at Los Potrillos, a western wear shop on Lake Avenue, it was time they had their own store.
Dresses are available for child through adult, as well as formal outfits for boys. Tita, manager at Mary Angel's Fashions, said the store caters to those seeking special occasion wear for weddings, prom, quinceanera, first communion, baptism and presentacion, or confirmation.
"We like to have a lot of unique dresses and accessories, and like to have new stuff rather than a lot of the same dresses," she said. Special orders are also available.
Mary Angel's opened for business at the beginning of this week, and is located at 609 Lake Avenue, next to La Juanitas.
