I have recently been told that stylistically I look like a Chola?!? I knew what it meant but couldn't think why. Ironically when I looked up the Chola and Gypsy in a search engine it gave a similar effect.
So firstly - what is Chola?

Chola : A chola is a firme hyna (latina) that wears a lot of makeup: thick eyeliner, liquid eyeliner on top going out of your eye dark brown or red lipstick and eyebrows drawn on or really thin. We mostly have permed hair with hella gel or straight and arched on top. We kick it with people in our own barrio and not really claiming a color mainly your raza. (Brown Pride) or (Barrio)and wear baggy or tight cloths with nike cortez shoes. (- Urban Dictionary)

It also usually means a female gang member but let's not even go there... am definitely not one. 
Anyway the 'chola' look has been brought to the mainstream by many celebrities. 
Enjoy Gwen Stefani's 'Luxurious' and do let me know your thoughts. Let's keep it rolling....

  1. this is awesome!!!!

  2. I think that everything published was actually very logical.

    But, think on this, what if you added a little content?
    I mean, I don't wish to tell you how to run your blog, but suppose you added a headline to possibly get people's attention?
    I mean "GYPSY VS CHOLA" is a little boring.
    You might peek at Yahoo's home page and see how they write post headlines to get people to open the links. You might try adding a video or a related picture or two to grab people interested about everything've written.

    Just my opinion, it could make your blog a little bit more interesting.
