“In high school I used be hella about that pinup life,” says 20-year-old Sailor Gonzales, a Los Angeles Latina studying fashion design and Chicano studies with whom Vogue spent a day traversing L.A.’s skate parks and thrift stores—and exploring her closet. Family is important to Gonzales—living up to what the generations before her strived for by coming to America—as is not becoming a fashion trend to be copped and claimed by outsiders.

i Will never try to dress like a chicano because this is mexican culture. If it has a deep meaning than I will defentily not take there culture because it is not only fasion but also a sighn of strength.
@Bahamas exactly as a fashion trend dumbass. Chicanos are no longer Chicanos. Yeah we were poor with second hand clothes but at least we had dignity and self respect. We showered and combed our hair before we went outside. We ironed our clothes with the creases. We were under educated but we read. I remember my older brother barely made it through high school but took his Sunday off to read. Tolstoy,Oscar Lewis, Nietzsche among others. We were a proud people. Not anymore. Now all you have is degenerate idiots illiterate and stupid. Saying n word this n word that. We lost our culture. We're no better than those Puerto Ricans.
Edgar Rocha Really? No one is taking our culture? Look up the spread of Chicano culture to Japan and how Japanese people are now using the stereotypical style of Chicano culture as a fashion trend and to look different.
Culture appropriation is stupid, As a chicana I don’t see people dressing up as us as “stealing” or anything rude, if anything I’m happy that people think the style is cool and if they understand the culture that’s good too...i just hate it when people get butt hurt over others dressing up in their cultural clothing...i mean if they don’t mean It in a bad way then don’t be mad...smh y’all just see the negative 🤦🏽♀️
Los Angeles Chicano culture has a great following among many Japanese youths. I saw the video where girls and guys dress exactly like movie cholos and the girls get tattoos, makeup and hoop earrings--the works--, even having low rider autos. When asked if they considered it cultural appropriation, a couple girls said, no, they consider it flattery.
Vogue. . .really. . .🤔
The story could have been great but the production was poor☹
Below par. . .and if they were going for raw n edgy(?)🙄
This could have easily been attained other ways. . .
I grew up in East L.A.
This girl, although lovely, isn’t really a Chola.
Where are the low riders and zoot suits?
She doesn’t even look like she uses lip liner.
“The higher the hair, the closer to God,” guys.
That’s not happening here.
She looks like she’s been diluted by Instagram.
There is no such thing as cultural appropriation in the U.S. ESPECIALLY huge cities like LA or NYC when you mix a bunch of cultures together it is expected that people will adopt style, food, religion... etc. Stop hating towards people who are “stealing your culture” and who’s to say if a white person wears a Chicano style that they haven’t “educated themselves enough about the culture? Like some people think I’m white, and I am, but I’m also actually Latina so if I wore Chicano style and she came up to me and said I’m stealing her culture do you think that would be fair? No. Cultural appropriation is too complicated, especially in America, to control. I’m also Italian and I love that people try to adopt the Italian culture whether that he style or food or whatever. Stop trying to make people’s interests wrong cause it’s not. MYOB what other people wear. (Unless it’s a complement xx)
What I dont understand is how she talks about people "stealing looks" because it's cool or whatever but she goes to thrift stores & makes her own style. What literally everyone does at thrift stores. & I roller skate too & every roller skater I know likes to dress somewhere along the lines of pinup style.
This is stereotypical. Yeah some chicanos identify with this, but we are more diverse in styles. There really is no culture with Hispanic style, it all just depends where we grew. Some of us like getting glam, some of us like street style, some of us like the vintage style. It’s a variety of things like any other race. This video is putting another stereotype on us. I definitely don’t associate myself with anything she’s doing and it’s kinda silly to say this is chicana
This makes my feel better about being Chicano. I now know that I do have a culture and that it's ok to be Chicano. Also we also like lowrider cars, trucks and bikes and elotes churros and raspados theirs more to our culture
It may take a while to empower yourself with the know how to reach David Blaine or Criss Angel standard but you should have a lot of fun along the way. A useful reference for learning card magic is The Royal Road to Card Magic book which is a card magic classic and a valuable tool to learn from.
The beauty of this fascinating hobby is that you can learn it at any age. Whereas starting younger does give you the advantage of usually being able to get the hang of learning new magic moves and sleights relatively quickly, there is nothing wrong with taking up this great pastime even if your 60 or 70 something, heck, the sky is the limit here.
Penn and Teller have contributed a lot to the popularity of card magic with their television specials and will have inspired a lot of people to look into this fascinating hobby. Who knows, if you practice enough, you could even make a decent living as a professional card magician and make money doing what is also an enjoyable and profitable pastime.
Should you choose to become a wedding magician or restaurant magician doing close up magic with cards, this enjoyable pastime can also be a good money earner if you put in enough practice to reach a worthy standard.
