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: an online boutique for vintage and designer clothing, shoes and accessories where you can shop beautiful items right off the page, AND a style diary where I showcase and write about my favourite trends and outfits.

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. However, I have never been satisfied with shopping on the high street alone. In addition to going to "regular" shops, I also like to trawl countless vintage boutiques and markets to find cool, pre-loved clothes and accessories that give my outfit an individual spin. The result is a mix-and-match look where shorts from Topshop might be coupled with Prada boots from a car boot sale and a 70s silk blouse from a charity shop (or thrift store if you're American!).

So where does Just get dressed come in? Well, I personally couldn't think of anything better than digging through rail after rail in a dingy vintage shop and unearthing some real treasures in the process, but I realise it's not everybody's idea of fun. Hence, I created this fashion hub where you can harvest the fruits of my labour, so to speak: all pre-loved designer, high street and vintage gems niftily displayed in one online boutique, freshly steam-cleaned and ironed. And because I don't only like shopping for clothes but also writing about clothes, I set up the blog pages so you can get some style inspiration along the way.

So, that's it! Take a look around, leave me a comment, browse the shop section and get inspired. If you like what you see, make sure to sign up on the right in order to receive notifications about new blog posts and shop content. If you'd like to get in touch, send me an email at desiree@justgetdressed.com – I'd love to hear from you. Meanwhile, I will continue my quest for hot new fashion so you don't have to bother with that and instead can just get dressed!
