Chastity Garner Valentine
In October of 2008, Chastity started GarnerStyle, (formally The Curvy Girl's Guide to Style). She started GargerStyle to coincide with her image consulting business just so she could offer complimentary inspiration and advice to plus size women wanting to achieve style. Chastity has chronicled her life, the clothes, travels, her marriage, moving to a new city and many other adventures through her blog, with many more to come. Her personal style is classic with a twist. From time to time Chastity can get a little crazy as she is not afraid to step outside of her own comfort zone. That is something she hopes to convey to her readers. "Be fearless. You only live once, why not look fabulous while doing it. If nothing else, don’t let size dictate your style."
