"Fab Without A Fortune"
Hi! I'm Dianna Baros, and this is my blog where I've been on a mission to help women have fun with fashion and feel good about themselves since 2007!
If you enjoy great style without the high pricetags, you'll find a lot to love here:
For outfit inspiration, I'm all about a good celebrity look for less—find your muse & make it your own!
Love trends? Browse all our looks for less to find aspirational pieces for your closet and your home.
This space has evolved a lot over the years, from some of the first try-ons, mirror selfies, "shop with me" photos, and looks-for-less on the web, to live coverage of New York Fashion Week. Nowadays, I'm most active on Instagram and in the free LTK app. Follow along for more outfit inspiration and daily deals.
Hope you enjoy and stay a while. Please feel free to contact me with any inquiries! xoThe Budget Babe, Dianna Baros

Dianna Baros is a wife and mom of 3 living in Connecticut and the editor-in-chief of The Budget Babe, a budget fashion blog which she founded in 2007.
She is a first generation American who grew up on Chicago's northwest side, graduated from The University of Chicago, and began her professional career working at Oprah.com in Chicago's West Loop. She started her blog as a side "hustle" and creative outlet, and loved connecting with other bargain hunters who, like her, loved fashion but didn't have the means to buy designer labels.
Dianna's blog quickly grew and has since been featured in People StyleWatch, The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, and countless other publications and news outlets. She's currently a regular fashion contributor to Star 99.9 Radio in Connecticut. Her tips have been featured in Good Housekeeping, All You Magazine, Redbook, and more. She's worked on campaigns with major clients including Walmart, Target, T.J. Maxx, Kohl's and many others. Dianna's expertise has been sought by journalists and authors including Elizabeth Cline, who in her best-seller Overdressed, quoted Dianna.
As a pioneer in the fashion blogging world, Dianna has a knack for making fashion fun and accessible, which is why her blog remains one of the top destinations for fashion lovers on any budget. The Budget Babe shares daily content and inspiration with over 300k Instagram followers, 30k Facebook fans and 40k Pinterest fans.

Kameron Lindo is a Content Creator for The Budget Babe. Kameron is a multi-faceted creative & wordsmith with a Bachelor of Arts in Creative Writing under her belt. Though she's spent much of her career in the realms of styling, online marketing, events and writing, fashion is her first love. She's always been one for trying new things and thinking outside the box when it comes to style, because she believes life's too short to play small or shrink back from shining your light.
Kameron is an encourager at heart and is known in her circle as the visionary who can always see the sunny side of things—which could be credited to her faith and being a California girl. Now living in Atlanta, Georgia with her high school sweetheart husband and their 3 kids, she is currently exploring her passions for uplifting women online and loves honing her sewing skills when she's not spending time with her loved ones.
