PNS*Hot*Flash: Chicana frets – winged eyebrows or eyeliner?

(PNS reporting from EAST LOS ANGELES) Veronica Gonzalez has a conundrum: Should she go rockabilly and do winged eyeliner or go chola and do winged eyebrows?

“It’s, like, hard, you know? I’m just trying to keep up with my heritage,” Gonzalez told PNS Wednesday.

Gonzalez said that if she went rockabilly it would not only look cute with her new cats-eye glasses, but she would be able to dress more girly. If she went with the chola eyebrows, then she would have to wear more khaki and that’s just not her color.

“I don’t get why everyone else is trying to get me to focus on other things, like which college I should go to,” the 18-year-old told PNS. “But, at the end of the day, you have to choose your image really carefully, you know? Those things are important.”

Gonzalez said she was leaning towards rockabilly, but wanted to keep the chola family tradition alive somehow. In that vein, she had another question, the most epic question of all: gold or silver?
