"Fab Without A Fortune"
Hi! I'm Dianna Baros, and this is my blog where I share my passion for fashion on a budget. If you enjoy great style without the high pricetags, you'll find a lot to love here!
For starters, I'm all about a good celebrity look for less - it's a great way to find outfit inspiration for every occasion.
Love designer dupes? We have those, too! Browse all our looks for less to find designer-inspired pieces for your closet and your home.
Finally, I love to share my personal style. You can check out what I'm wearing or shop my Instagram. It's pretty casual, laid-back and mom-friendly!
Hope you enjoy and stay a while. Please feel free to contact me with any inquiries! xoThe Budget Babe, Dianna Baros
About The Editor-In-Chief
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 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 quoted Dianna in her best-seller Overdressed.
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 85k Instagram followers, 24k Facebook fans and 27k+ Pinterest fans.

She graduated from the University of Oregon with a Bachelor's Degree in Journalism & Communications, with a focus on magazine editorial and production. Since then, Kailan has built her personal blog to share her words with the world, and forever maintains a passion for fashion since her days of changing outfits four or five times a day at the age of six. She is always on the hunt for a good deal (especially on denim, basic tees, and a unique pair of sneakers-the staples!), hence her enthusiasm for helping out The Budget Babe followers in their pursuit of cute but affordable, "I need to have that!" fashion.
