Hi, I'm Desiree! Welcome to my personal style blog focusing on a mix of current fashion and vintage items. Check in regularly for urban London looks as well as style and beauty inspiration!
Hi, I'm Desiree, welcome to my blog! I'm so glad you're stopping by because this is a place where all my passions come together – writing, photography, make-up and, above all, fashion.
Just get dressed is two things at once: a style diary where I showcase and write about my favourite trends and outfits, and a shop where you can buy the items I wear right off the page.
It's quite ironic that just get dressed even exists because, well, most days I actually don't get dressed. As a translator and copywriter, I don't actually have to go to an office, and a home office like the one I've set up doesn't have a dress code – it's only the cat and me, after all!
However, I have always been crazy about fashion. I love putting outfits together and wearing beautiful clothes, and I subscribe to all the fashion magazines you could think off. As I was getting more and more frustrated with my dressing gown look, I decided enough was enough: I set up this blog as an incentive to actually get dressed and capture all the gorgeous clothes in my wardrobe in a twice-weekly updated fashion diary.
Just documenting my outfits wasn't enough for me though; I also wanted to share my looks with others (YOU!) and provide some inspiration on how to wear current trends or hip items. I actually work as a fashion copywriter, but I obviously don't have complete creative freedom when writing for other brands.
This blog is a platform where I can put my own spin on things – and hopefully inspire you in the process.
So what's the shop section all about? Well, as I started to document my looks, I realised that it would be quite unfeasible to amass more and more clothes just so I would have fresh looks to model every week. Hence, I set up stores on eBay and Depop where you can shop the items I wear in the pictures. This way, everybody wins: I get to trawl countless shops and markets to find cool, pre-loved clothes and accessories which I can then style at my pleasure, and you get to buy them with just a few clicks. Plus, I link to any items not available in my store so you can get your hands on those, as well.
So, that's it! Take a look around, leave me a comment, browse the shop section and get inspired.
