If it's good enough for Olivia P...

You know a bag is going to be a hit when it’s already graced the arms of Olivia Palermo already. Even more so if it’s high street, therefore won’t cost your entire month’s salary in one go.

Enter the Kensington cross body, £130, courtesy of Kurt Geiger. In a bright red shade with a British heritage print on it, and embellished with bows, it’s the perfect accessory to elevate your look.

As well as being spotted on Miss P. it’s also been a hit with influencers like Doina Ciobanu, Alex from the Frugality.

Kurt Geiger told us, ‘The red Kensington has been the bestselling bag of all time for us, with 75% of stock sold within 8 days across e-commerce and key stores nationwide.’

In fact, it was so popular that when it sold out, it had a waiting list of 680. Pretty impressive considering it’s usually the likes of Hermes Birkin bags that have a waiting list. If you’ve fallen in love with the bag as well, despair not. It’s availably again at Kurt Geiger, both in red and cream.

Penny grew up in France and studied languages and law at the Sorbonne Nouvelle University in Paris before moving to the UK for her MA in multimedia journalism at Bournemouth University. She moved to the UK permanently and has never looked back (though she does go back regularly to stock up on cheese and wine).

Although she's always loved fashion - she used to create scrapbooks of her favourite trends and looks, including Sienna Miller and Kate Moss' boho phase - her first job was at, sourcing the best deals for everything from restaurants to designer sales.

However she quit after two years to follow her true passion, fashion journalism, and after many years of internships and freelance stints at magazines including Red, Cosmopolitan, Stylist and Good Housekeeping, landed her dream job as the Digital Fashion Editor at Marie Claire UK.

Her favourite part of the job is discovering new brands and meeting designers, and travelling the world to attend events and fashion shows. Seeing her first Chanel runway IRL at Paris Fashion Week was a true pinch-me moment.
