The term "Buchona" came out of the Mexican state of Sinaloa, where it was used to describe the flashy, flamboyant girlfriends of a new breed of narco. These guys were known as "buchón" or "buchones" - real macho types… But the women weren't content to just sit back and be arm candy. They wanted to be noticed, to be heard. So they started adopting this term "Buchona" for themselves, and adopting a style that’s now flourished through Mexico and even parts of the US. Now the turn is no longer exclusive to being a girlfriend… Its grown bigger that now…..Now….it’s a lifestyle.
