Who we are: The Budget Babe is a freelance writer, illustrator and fashion blogger. Prior to launching TheBudgetBabe.com, we spent over four and a half fun-filled years producing content for Oprah.com at Harpo Productions in Chicago, Illinois. (Yes, we met her and no, we can't get you tickets—sorry!)
What we do: Ever since cheap became chic, we've been bent on spreading the fab-without-a-fortune gospel by blogging about the latest and greatest affordable fashion, beauty, style and shopping news (hey, it's cheaper than buying everything we see!).
We strive to provide fun, entertaining information for real women who want to spend a little, live a lot, and look good while they're at it.
Why we do it: We're fascinated by what we like to call the democratization of fashion, from the emergence of cheap-chic fashion-for-the-masses from retailers like Target to the designer imitation culture of Forever 21 and H&M. Oh, and cuz we like cute shoes and dressing up.
What turns us on: Good design, cheap. Consumers today expect more, yet want to pay less. We believe these thought forms breed ingenuity, innovation and evolution in the rapidly changing global fashion landscape—and we can't wait to see what will happen next!
To Our Dear Readers: Welcome! We invite you to share your thoughts, voice your opinions and ask any question about fashion, style, beauty or shopping. Please don't be shy - and don't hold back! We're grateful for each and every reader, and know you have something amazing to contribute. Peace & Love.

Lucite's transparency makes it a versatile and neutral accessory that pairs well with many other spring trends, including black&white and brights. Its futuristic look also adds a modern touch when paired with floaty dresses and florals.
But since lovely lucite is just a fancy name for plastic, don't spend too much on this trend...we bought the bangle from Forever21.com (below) and that was enough to satisfy our needs.
Here are a few budget-friendly ways to get your lucite fix:
Vintage Lucite Bangle, Forever21.com, $4.80
Tobago, Ninewest.com, $89.00 SALE $59.99
RJ Graziano Square Crystal Flower Ring, Nordstrom.com, $25.00
