Tina is named in honour of the wonderful and inspiring Tina Turner. I am lucky enough to have seen Tina in concert 3 times at her peak in the late 80-90's during her Private Dancer album success. She is one awesome lady and this bag was with me at one of the concerts!
My Tina shares some of her traits and also packs quite a punch on eye-contact. I got her from a wonderful store in the UK called Accessorize, probably 12 yrs ago at least. She is the size of a large clutch but with short satin handles, inside she is black satin with one zippered pocket and a magnetic clasp.
But it's on the outside that she lives up to her name, with rows of tiny pale gold and black sequins stitched on in a wild animal print style. She is utterly glamourous, catches the eye at every turn and stands out from the crowd with her wild magnetism! Like the real Tina she is also aging with style, beauty and grace.
Tina and I could have parted company on more than a few occasions when others have lusted after her. But I have hung on tight and view her as a classic amongst my many handbags.
I'll be back with another fave handbag on Monday.
