Focusing especially on the taste performances that constitute personal style blogs, the talk will demonstrate the ways in which popular bloggers like Susanna Lau (aka Susie Bubble) and Bryan Grey Yambao (aka BryanBoy) carefully craft race and with it, ethnicity, gender, sexuality, and class as personal vernacular style practices and choices.
