Feisty Fashion Feature // Chastity Garner of GarnerStyle
October 4, 2013
We haven’t had a Feisty Fashion Feature in a while, so what better way to bring back the series than with our very first curvy blogger! I’m so happy to introduce you all to Chastity Garner, and her fab blog, GarnerStyle!
Tell us a bit about your blog and why you started blogging.
I started blogging in 2008 in conjunction with my image consulting company. I really just wanted to have a way to offer complimentary advice. I knew that a stylist is not in everyone’s budget, so this was a way for me to and reach more people.
What are 5 fashion items (clothes, shoes, accessories, etc.) that describe your personal style?
Chanel Dark Shades
MAC Girl About Town Lipstick
What’s your go-to hairstyle? Right now I’m rocking the French Braid. It’s neat and it keeps my hair protected.
How do you feel about the presence of Black style bloggers (too many, not enough, etc.) I just wish they got the recognition they deserve. There are some amazing black bloggers, but I feel like mainstream media [portrays] 1 or 2 black female bloggers and says “Stop! That’s enough.” LOL. I want us to have more than a token presence in Fashion, Media, etc.
Tell us anything else you think we should know.
I’ve come to realize that fashion blogging is so much more than talking about fashion. I feel like we are encouraging people to love themselves and know that that we all, as women, are worthy.
Let me know what you think about Chastity’s style and her blog! And did you see her hair? I love it! I’m a HUGE BANG FAN. Personally, I’ve really missed the Feisty Fashion Feature series, and I’m looking forward to sharing more Black style bloggers of all shapes and hues and curl patterns =)
