Ladies let me introduce you to Pocahontas, so named for obvious reasons that require no explanation I believe!
Pocahontas and I have been in a close relationship for about 8 years and she is one of my most admired and commented on handbags. Wherever we go together I can guarantee we won’t make it home without someone coveting her, she’s just so unique.
Her body is made of suede, with a long leather strap which means she hangs around hip length (I am 5’7). The strap length is adjustable and there is an ornate large buckle that just adds even more to her charm. What makes her so unique though are the suede work, pretty feathers, fringe and the metal charms that jingle when I walk, pre-announcing our arrival. I also love the contrasting wide white strap, with the ethnic pattern intermittently along it’s length.
I can’t remember which store I got her in, but I do remember it was a High Street retailer in the UK and she was not expensive.
Pocahontas needs special care as any rough handling sometimes results in feather loss, so I tend to save her for days when I either want to make a statement, or I am lacking in self-confidence. She is a handbag that just makes you feel more confident, even on a ‘does my bum look big in this’ day!
Pocahontas is also Cal-Jo's favourite handbag and she tries to sneak the odd feather when she thinks her mum's not looking....do not be deceived by her 'that's beneath me' disdainful look :-)
