Dooney & Bourke Florentine Leather Clayton Satchel
Very nice purse, but too heavy
I ordered this purse for its organizational possibilities. It has everything I want in a purse, except for the empty weight. It was heavier, empty, than some of my purses at full capacity. The leather is exceptional, the style is unparalleled and the ability to organize....amazing. I just couldn't take the weight on my shoulder once I had it filled with my necessities. Even with the cross-body strap, my shoulder hurt after 20 minutes. Perfect for someone younger and/or in much better shape!
way to heavy!
This bag was not at all what I expected! It was hard leather not soft at all. It was so heavy empty that it hurt my shoulder and even over my arm. I put all of my normal purse things in it and tried to carry it for two days. I was exhausted, sore and tired not to mention tired of banging it into everything because of its size! Just say no to this one!
Love, Love, Love
I have been a Coach girl for years. However, this bag is wonderful with all of its pockets. It's a large bag that does have some weight and I would expect that in a bag this large. The leather is soft and the color is like fresh butter. Just love it.
My Best Purchase! !
I bought this bag in the pink and ladies, it's to die for. It's very "Stately," very tres chic..I will be using it this weekend. I will post a picture on my YouTube channel and Google Plus.
The bag was beyond my expectations, it's beautiful, and the leather is really soft.....would definitely recommend this bag.
Beautiful bas but the color was too yellow. No where close to the color posted.
Returned the bag.
Absolutely why I Love Dooneybourke
I Love this bag. So does EVERYONE else!!! I want every color!!!!
Rain But No Problem!
Purse got soaked! When the purse dried, there were no spots or marks on it. So happy!!!
I purchaed this bad back in March in Satchel Natural. First thing to know is this bag is very Heavy. It is a big bag but because it is leather also, it becomes a little exhausting wearing it all day, say at the mall for instance. On the flip side, because of it's size you can stuff a lot of stuff in there (adding to the weight) but easy to consolidate your items.
Now keep in mind I have had this bag 8 months and I have carried it maybe twice for 3-4 weeks at a time. As the leather began to break in, I was getting dark stains particularly on the side without the pockets. Now it is an eye sore and since QVC does not take returns over 30 days, I'll have to contact d&B to ask how to clean it. All said, I have always been a coach bag type of girl - I have about 20, but tried the D&B for a brand changup - won't buy this brand again. I have never had any issues with my Coach bags whether leather or cloth and given the amount of money invested in this bag in particular, I expect exceptional quality as it wears and tears.
Love Dooney and Bourke .. BUT ...
This bag is gorgeous. If you like big bags this one is for you. My only BUT .... the bag is too heavy. I returned the bag because it was too much to carry everyday. As I get older, I am concerned how this bag would affect my shoulders and back. Additionally, this bag was stiff and cumbersome. I have another Dooney with florentine leather and it is much softer. I was disappointed because I really wanted to keep this bag.
Waited Too Long
Why did I wait so looong? It is my most favorite Dooney. I have over 10 bags and have given many to my daughters. This is about the best wearing handbag ever. It fits me well and holds so much even if the look is slim.
Love This Bag!
I waited a while before ordering this bag. I'm so glad I ordered it. It is beautiful. I love everything about it.
