This week, MTV named its first-ever “TJ” (official MTV Twitter correspondent) and it’s Gabi Gregg! The 23-year-old Detroit native and Chicago resident won the contest, which grants her a $100,000 salary and a one-year contract at MTV. But we’re into her for more than her creative texting skills. She’s got major fashion street cred, too, as founder of the blog Young, Fat, and Fabulous, which focuses on plus-size fashion (she was even featured in Italian Vogue!). So, we caught up with the social-networking lover today, and she told us how Twitter inspires her style, her love for Kim Kardashian, and she can’t wait to hit the sample sales after she lands in New York next week. She also wants to spend 20 percent of her paycheck on clothes, which puts her at a $20,000 shopping budget. WOW. We are officially jealous! Check out more of her fashion secrets below.
+ Welcome to the MTV fashion family, Gabi! May you make the MTV headquarters more fabulous every day. Follow her official Twitter @mtvtj!
