Chonga Style - Chola Style
Quote:
Chonga

A girl of Hispanic origin, usually between the ages of 12 and 19, but sometimes as young as 8. Primarily found in Miami (most famously, in Hialeah), the chonga is known for her cheap form of dress, a combination of the so-called gangsta look and that of a prostitute, but can vary between the two. She wears ridiculously large hoop earrings large enough to be bracelets, which are usually gold and have their name written in them, and diamond studs high up on her ears. They may also wear thick, gold bangle bracelets in stacks on their arms. Depending on how ghetto she thinks she is, she may wear oversized men's t-shirts with tight, usually white Brazilian pants, with a colored thong worn underneath that shows through (on purpose). The chonga's shoe of choice is usually either the traditional black Reeboks, white Nike Air Force Ones, completely black Converse high tops, velvet black ankle boots, or the most popular, Chinese beaded slippers in the same matching color ad their top, and worn with ankle socks. Most recently, Chongas have begun listening to reggaeton, but also enjoy rap, R&B, and the radio stations that play these genres of music. They can also be heard frequently calling these stations to make "shout-outs" to their babydaddy. Chongas have a very distinct form of speech, a cross between poorly imitated black slang and a thick Spanish accent, which emphasizes on the vowels. Some chongas even speak entirely in Spanglish. Here are some sample sentences, and how they would be pronounced in Chonga:
Eyy yu no daa kih in fahrs pihreeuh OMAIIGA daaaaaaaaaaaaam he faaeeen!(Hey, you know that kid in first period, oh my God, damn he’s fine!)
Eyy yu go-eentu Maariisleyseesiz quinceson Fraidei?(Hey,are you going to Marisleysise’s quince on Friday?)
O HELLNAA bish Ima beesho azz, waash! OMAIIGAA!(Oh hell no bitch, I’m going to beat your ***, watch! Oh my God!)
The Chonga also has a distinct form of writing as well, whether it be on bathroom stalls or their Myspace pages. A typical chonga-vandalized school bathroom stall (or wall, or classroom desk, or school bus seat, or most any other form of public property) would consist of poorly imitated graffiti in permanent marker or whiteout, usually insulting a rival chonga, warning fellow chongas to “Bak da Fuk Off”, “claiming” a fantasy crush, (for example Nelly, Bow Wow, Chris Brown, Ludacris, Chingy Lil Wayne, Daddy Yankee, etc., referring to themselves as the rapper’s “wifey” or “baby girl” or “fine Rican mami”), or simply tagging, using nicknames such as “Baby Girl” or “Brownie” or “Tweety” or “Rican Mami”. However, being the unique individuals they are, they tend to write F’s backwards, I’s (ii) double, S’s accompanied by a Z (Sz), and when typing, lowercase q’s substituted for g’s (BaBii qiiRl) or 3’s for e’s (N3LLySzi RiiCaN PRiiNC3Sz). Examples of this (written either on public property or online) would be:
N3LLySz LiiL WiiF3y –N-MiiSz Tw33Ty --> Yall hATaSz BaKK oFF,LuDaSz BaBii qURl,Tw33Ty N SzNiicK3rSz.
The chonga may also have a special nickname for her real-life boyfriend,a chongo who may go by the name of Mauricio or Junior or Angel or Juan, but whom she affectionately calls Cio or Coco or Snickers or Scooby.Chongas may be found riding Metro buses, the chonga vehicle of choice, in groups of 4 to up to 15 of their kind, if her cousin Kenneth is not available to give her a ride to the “flea” (explained later) on the handlebars of his stolen tricycle. Chongas can be seen at the flea market (or "flea"),Dolphin Mall, roaming the streets of Hialeah, around basketball courts, public parks, or in their cousin Junior’s bedroom.

Okay....so I want to skip their daywear for now and go to the more classy side- night time gear.

Shoe of choice- clear heels will always be in. Lately the trend with them is ones that have lights. I saw some chongas use them for prom.

(alternative-footwear)


With something likes this...to be sytlin in da club

(trashy)

Tube dresses are classic.

(trashy)

So are jean dresses, jean shorts jumper suits, etc...

(trashy)

Graduation is coming up....I was thinking this is appropriate. Tip Jar Clear Heels! They can put their grad money in there and save up for some "fancy" MAC makeup. I predict a new trend in clear heels!
