Meet Agi, a fashionable Polish girl living in London. She’s currently working hard to land her dream job in the fashion industry, but decided to start her blog Lift Me Up Wardrobe in the meantime as a way to show off her style.

Being based in NYC, we love seeing what’s going on in the fashion scene over in Europe. After all…they are quite a few years ahead of us. We found that Agi’s style was both bold and colorful — I think we could all use some of her tips!

Agi says ” I started my blog as a way to feel complete. I needed to do something with my life other than work and home. I also happen to be a great style advisor, and after years of helping ‘just friends’ I decided I wanted to help others by sharing my personal fashion sense.”

Below are some of her super stylish photos as well as the fab interview we had with her:

Broke & Chic: How do you stay fashionable on a budget? 

Agi: I’m a good researcher and will search online to find the best bargains and deals. I also use promo codes and vouchers if applicable. And since I love to shop and am often browsing stores, I usually get my hands on sales first.

I also re-sell my very best pieces of clothes to my girlfriends and on Ebay.

B&C: What have been your favorite 2013 trends so far? 

A: Monochrome, 90’s revival, ‘fake’ logo printed t-shirts and white.

B&C: When it comes to fashion, what’s worth the splurge and what’s worth saving on?

A: I save for designer pieces such as bags, shoes, glasses and my fav…watches! I splurge on ‘hot right now’ and ‘must have’ fashion.

B&C: What’s a trend you can’t stand? 

A: It might sounds nuts but I have never consider animal prints as something I would ever wear. They should stay where they belong!
