Jeg har aldri tenkt over det fr i dag nr ei jente p tumblr kalte meg chola barbie.
chola stilen har egentlig gjort ett stort inntrykk p hvordan jeg kler meg og hvordan jeg former min stil.. selv har jeg aldri tenkt over det fr n.

Tattoos, especially sleeves which I think are so dope on pretty girls, heavy make-up, don't judge me I love it, and a rebellious attitude. In my opinion it IS the rebirth of the greaser. In the 50's when America as a whole was searching and striving for the American dream of picket white fences, there was also the "outsiders" the blue collar, hard working greasers who seemed to want no part of American dream or look. Rock a Chola embodies that same feel. Here you have a look derived from Cholas, a predominantly gang affiliated look for Latina females mixed with a rockabilly feel of bandanas, dark denim, wedges. Come on, women with full on tattooed sleeves??? If that's not a true modern day rebel what is? But it doesn't stop there it's more than a look it's a culture, the music, the tats, the cars, it's a world onto itself.

There isn't a lot of media coverage on the subject especially with the coined term but it's hard to miss the look, especially on "reality" shows like rock of love, and bad girls club.

Famous chicks who evoke Rock a Chola, Amy Winehouse RIP, Gwen Stephanie, Lady gaga, Rihanna although more in attitude and swag, and surely there are others I'm missing. Now you can't even mention Rock a Chola without mentioning the woman who damn near birthed the term and put a spotlight on the culture.
