Influencer: Barbi Jo DiMaria

Host of The Barbi Jo Show and Director of Marketing & Promotions at 92 PRO-FM


"My personal style is flat-out fearless – bold, playful, and daring. Some think I belong in fashion detention, while others believe I have Barbie’s dream closet. For me, every day is a fashion show. When I feel my best, I smile my brightest. My wardrobe is electric, but inclusive. I can dress dramatic-diva, feminine-pretty, trendy-hipster, classic-elegant, sporty chic, or be a rebel-rocker.

My coworkers wouldn’t be surprised if I strolled into the station sporting a ballgown or rocking everyday denim. I’m very much comfortable in both. Most days, I slap on my favorite ripped jeans, but I do enjoy dressing a little extra. Sometimes I find it difficult dressing down because my closet is full of many ‘going out-out’ pieces and dresses. The best part about radio is no one can see you, although the rules have now changed with social media.

I obsess over sundress/sandal season and no-jacket weather. My summer style is bubbly, cute, and colorful, while my winter wardrobe includes a lot of black. Black is always the new black, and I live for it, but by spring and summer I want a candy-colored closet.

I’m seriously a sucker for a killer cocktail dress or a unique accessory. Alexandra’s in Fall River or Sonya’s in Cranston serve up some serious boutique style.

Radioland is bananas, but I love the hustle. I’m juggling two jobs right now and both allow me to be very creative dreaming up contests, events, working with musical acts, and meetings celebs. There’s definitely glamour, but there’s so much that goes into the making of radio.

I adore everything about Rhody, but mostly, our local taste. We’re so blessed in the grub department."
