Ready to save money on gorgeous fashion? OK, that was rhetorical – who isn’t?? When it comes to budget style, few people are more knowledgeable or well-versed than Dianna Baros, the editorial voice behind the popular blog The Budget Babe. With six years at Oprah.com under her belt, as well as a stint as spokeswoman for TJ Maxx and Marshall’s, and a two-year run offering Cybermonday tips to 50+ media outlets, Dianna is an over-qualified resource for designer bargains. The Budget Babe combines celebrity outfit looks-for-less, designer collaboration previews, and daily sale updates for a one-stop budget shopping bible. On today’s show, Dianna will tell us about the career & life path that led her to specialize in budget fashion, her thoughts on the designer collaboration trend, and she’ll even share a few of her top bargain shopping spots! Plus, new music today from two talented young artists, Grace Woodroofe and Youth Lagoon, alongside Porcelain Raft, CREEP, and a “Ryan Gosling Remix” by the UK band Spector of Florence and The Machine’s “No Light No Light.” So stick around and get out your budget worksheet – we’ll get your wardrobe prepped for spring with cash to spare (perhaps for some new music?) Encore show from January 20, 2012
Just in time for Valentine’s wish lists, today’s show features one of my favorite jewelry lines, Nola Bella. Jill Scharmen has been an avid vintage jewelry collector for years, and in 2002, started to design her own pieces for fun. Not surprisingly, her bold, elegant, ethereal designs were quick to gain fans, and her work went from hobby to second job. Working by day as a fashion industry colorist, Jill brings her eye for form, attention to detail, and dedication to precision to her four gorgeous collections – Atelier, Vintage, Rockstar, and Timeless – offering pieces for stylish every wardrobe and every occasion. On today’s show, we’ll hear from Jill about how she got started working with jewelry, how she approaches new designs, the materials she works with, her own vintage jewelry collection, and some future plans that could mean exciting new designs for Nola Bella. All that and a ton of great new music in the mix today – the holiday slump of new releases has (finally!) turned a corner, and today you’ll hear samples from upcoming releases by Youth Lagoon, Companion, and new-to-the-scene Houses, along with the latest from Toro Y Moi, Radar Brothers, Big Harp, and Foxygen. So tune in and turn it up – we’re sensing some serious style on BreakThru Radio!
