Today we are doing a Dress the Ed shoot in the office and I'm going to be styling my willing victim Rebecca in pieces from covetique.com - the site that sells pre-owned designer clothes, shoes and accessories at discounted prices.
Three big exciting-looking boxes came to the office earlier this week and when we opened them all sorts of designer delights were nestling within.

Ever since I first handled the buttery soft leather of a Bottega Veneta bag in the fashion cupboard on my first internship I've been mildly obsessed with the cult Italian label. I was lucky enough to find a BV handbag on eBay many years ago and I would totally save it in a fire before rescuing my cat. Kidding! (Sorry Mitford.) Anyway, I rather love these classic brown leather Bottega Veneta sandals so we'll definitely be using those in a couple of looks.

Lulu Guinness' red lips handbag is a modern design classic - so much so that it's on display in the V&A's newly reopened fashion galleries as part of the fabulous Ballgowns exhibition. It's amazing that Covetique currently has one of these available to buy and I know exactly how I'm going to use it in the shoot.

One of the nicest things about buying pre-owned designer stuff is that good quality leather pieces like this Alexander McQueen handbag actually look better with age.

So now it's time to start the shoot - we'll bring you the results soon!
