Pinup Couture Bags

Posted on the 30th of November, 2013

WOWZERS! Pinup Couture released an AMAZING line of handbags - they look even better in real life!

As its name suggests, the Amoeba purse adapts itself to nearly every occasion; dressed up, dressed down, it can do it all!

Its uniquely curving retro shape hearkens back to the atomic age with clean, futuristic, and distinctive lines.

Constructed of a sparkly black glitter vinyl, black vinyl trim, chrome bullet feet to keep your purse clean, zippered and open inner pockets, and a chrome clasp, no detail escaped their attention.

This purse also boasts a two-toned handle and chrome chain, a very important detail in preserving the longevity of a well-loved vinyl purse.

Comes in Black, Pink and Red.
