Christine Bueras

Age: 24

Latin heritage: Half Samoan and Half El Salvadorean

Where’d you get your outfit? My sweater is my mom’s, which I think she got at a mom and pop clothing store. The shirt and the skirt are from H&M, and this is a Coach purse.

I see that you have your hair in an updo. Yeah, I teased it. I’ve been doing that since college. I don’t like it to be flat. Because I work in an office, I don’t like for it to get in the way.

Occupation: lingerie salesperson

Break down your outfit: These slacks are my mom's. They're really comfortable and nice to wear to work. This top is my mom's also. I don't know where she got it. It's kinda vintage. And this other top, I got it at H&M. I like feeling really relaxed at work. This necklace belongs to my sister's friend. I don't wear my clothing. I like wearing other people's clothes! This bag is from JC Penney.

Best Jeans For Your Body
By Latina Staff | 08/27/2008 - 13:30

Buying jeans is tough. It’s right up there with buying swimsuits, because it forces you to analyze and deconstruct your body type against an industry standard. Unlike other denim fit guides, Latina.com is not here to tell you what you should and shouldn’t wear—especially not because of some body type restriction. We believe that if you have the right attitude and a compelling concept for your outfit, you can pull off anything you damn well please.

By Shani Saxon-Parrish | 08/12/2008 - 13:06

This week we have a special international treat for the Street Life column—a ton of flicks of the stylish and sophisticated ladies of Medellín, the second largest city in Colombia. Because it's altitude is so high (about 5,000 feet above sea level), it's not as warm as other spots as close to the equator.

Occupation: Assistant shop director for Kira Plastinina [a teenager touted as the world’s youngest fashion designer]


What’s your background? Mexican


Tell us the inspiration behind your outfit. Kira, of course. I love the sandals because it’s like the gladiator sandals that are in right now with this ankle strap. It’s really cool and really casual, but still a little bit funky and fresh for the summer.
