As seen on Oprah.com, The New York Times, and Elle Magazine, GarnerStyle.com  was founded in October of 2008 by Chastity Garner Valentine. Through GarnerStyle, she offers inspiration and advice to plus size women who want to achieve thier best style. What began as an experiment with little knowledge as to what “blogging” even was or how it would impact social media became a platform with 19.5K followers on Twitter, 215K followers on Instagram, and get this—nearly 1 million followers on Facebook! Who knew blogging could become a full-time job? It did for Chastity. She has chronicled her life, her clothes, travel, moving to a new city, and many other adventures through her blog. And there is still much more in store to come!"
