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 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?)
