BLOGGERS DIARY: CHASITY OF GARNER STYLE




We know that all things God works for the good of those who love him- Romans 8:28

Hello lovelies,

 chastity of garner style

 I got my lap top fixed finally; yippee!!! my brother actually got it fixed for me, I hope he forgives me because I became uneasy at some point but thank you so much bro you the best.

 Just like I said in my previous post this blog is going to be a weekly blog; consistently on Mondays to be precise.  This Weekend has been hectic though, I was down with fever again but thank God for early healing I am more than grateful.  Even with that I tried sending a mail to chastity of garner style,  she was so humble I never could imagine a star blogger like that with that humility and with that I am saying a big thank you to her and I hope to feature her often.

I came across her blog via Facebook and her blog is the inspiration behind why I added the feedback user report to my blog. Curvy and beautiful chastity valentine is the first blogger to be interviewed on this blog  and that's because I haven't posted anything for curvy chics out there but there will however other blog interviews by God’s grace.

Chastity is the blogger behind the garner style blog and the writer of the curvy girls guide. She currently lives in Texas with her husband. I am really impressed with her unique style and her sense of fashion.  She also loves print just like I do, she has also been featured in several magazines and talk shows like Oprah Winfery show, Elle magazine and new York times (I definitely would get there someday lol…), below are the questions I asked her and her humble way of replying.

 1.Please introduce yourself, what you do, your blog and where you live currently? 

I'm Chastity Garner Valentine and I live in the San Francisco Bay area.  I am a full time fashion blogger that writes and illustrates plus size fashion with my own body. 




2. What inspired you to start blogging, when and how it has been so far? 

I started blogging after being on bed rest from a knee injury in 2008.  The journey has been great.  I've had so many amazing experiences, been in some of my favorite fashion publications, and have meet some amazing people all because of blogging.

3. Define your style and what makes you unique? 

My style is sophisticated,unapologetic,and polished.  One aspect that makes my style different is the sheer fact that blogging is generally thought of as place for a younger girl.  I started blogging at 28 and now I'm 33 so my take on style is different than a younger girl and it continues to grow, develop, and mature as I get older.  


4.What's the most expensive item in your wardrobe and how much is it?

I usually cap out at about $500 for my splurge items, so I'm going to say my Tom Ford sunnies that I just purchased. 
 
5. Where do you  shop and who is your best clothe designer?

 At this point in my life, I really don't have a particular place I shop.  I literally all over the place. I shop plus and reg. sizes. I guess you would say I frequent Asos' regular sizes most. My favorite clothes designer is JIBRI.  



 
6. Do you have any obsessive compulsive dress... (O.C.D)? What clothe is it and how many pair do you have?
 
No I am not obsessed with any clothe.
 
7. Heels, flats or wedges?

Reality is flats because of my knee, but in my head my I have feet that never hurt it would be heels.

8. How did you develop your love for fashion and as an image consultant any challenges so far? 

I always loved fashion, but for so long it was readily available to me in my size. I really began to dive into it when I modeled for JIBRI while I was in grad school.  That was when I truly bitten, because it was the first time there were actually fashion forward clothing for a girl my size.

9.Any fashion faux pax? 

I've learned not to discount anything in fashion.  You will swear up and down you wouldn't be caught dead in something and then you are in it and it's fabulous.

10. How do you relax? 

Wine...LOL.

11. Beauty routines and your best hairstyle?

 Anyone who reads my blog know that I love a bun.  Big, small or whatever, it
doesn't matter.  As far as beauty, I like to deep condition my hair once a week with a concoction of conditioner, honey, coconut oil, olive oil, and an egg.  I'm also very much into my skin care.  I want to look soft and supple for as long as I can.  LOL!

12.Who takes your blog pictures and who does your lovely hairstyles?

My husband takes my pictures and I do my own hair. 


13. I know you are married anything lovely you want to share about your husband? 
He is absolutely most amazing person I know. I love how he views the world and people. It's like most of the pre-judgment that plague our society doesn't exist in his brain.  He challenges me to be a better person every day. 

14. Your best fashion blog/blogger, shoe designer?

I probably dig the Man Repeller most of all.  I like the idea of not dressing for men.  It's so liberating.  My favorite shoe designer is Valentino.

15. Your book 'the curvy girl guide', what is it about and how can it help the curvy girls out there? 
I did that book in 2010 and so much has changed since then, but I say that the books gives plus size women a great place to start in term of developing their own personal style.

16.Any advice for the curvy chic and upcoming curvy bloggers?
