Dooney & Bourke Florentine Leather Clayton Satchel
LOVE THIS BAG!
I bought this bag in orange when it first aired and love it. Lots of organization and the outside pockets don't even look like pockets at all, but still give the extra room to carry smaller items that I use throughout the day like mints and lip gloss. I decided I had to have the natural which is a great neutral that goes with everything. Then along came the violet, my new favorite. I just ordered the bone a couple of weeks ago and now I'm eyeing the blue one. Love, love, love this bag. Yes, it's on the heavy side, but the item description DOES say it weighs 3 lbs., 7 oz., not lightweight, but I don't care. I've always carried big bags and this one is at the top of list in terms of form and function. If you don't live heavier, bigger bags, then this may not be for you, but if you think a bigger bag is usually a better bag, then you'll love it. Great function and organization. LOVE!
I first purchased this bag in the Chestnut. I admit I was a little skeptical about it.After carrying this bag for a couple of weeks now, all I can say is WOW! The color and workmanship is unsurpassed. I am a teacher so the organizational pockets are very useful. Plus, the bag is very roomy without being too big. I have received numerous compliments on this bag. My only suggestion is to make the bag in more colors. QVC made it so easy to order another color because of the Easy Pay option. I received the Violet today and am in LOVE with the color! I cannot wait to carry it this Spring and Summer!
"GOR - GEE - OUS"
I OWN THIS BAG IN OCEAN BLUE. I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE IT. CAN'T CARRY A LOT IN IT, BUT I DON'T NEED A LOT. I LOVE ALL THE POCKETS ON THE OUTSIDE. THE STRAP IS TOO SMALL AND IS NOT COMFORTABLE ON THE SHOULDER. STILL LOVE THE BAG.
Very high quality however much too heavy. I began to have back problems from carrying this bag at 3/4 full. So disappointed, wanted to keep so badly. Beautiful workmanship and a gorgeous high quality bag. The leather alone with items in the bag was just too heavy for everyday commuting. I am 5'6" approximately 160 lbs, so the actual fit was great as well...just too heavy for the purpose I needed, and that being everyday commuting back and forth.
This bag is stunning! I bought it in ivy green. The leather is so nice. Plenty of room inside! BUT....it is so heavy even without anything in it...lugging it around seems to be quite an undertaking! For that reason I can't give it five stars. I understand the quality of the leather but my is it heavy! I'm not retuning it. I just need to exercise more to carry it!!!
Gorgeous & Classic!
This is a beautiful handbag! Wow. Very well made and strong, durable leather. I purchased it in black since I needed a good basic black bag. I am really glad I decided to invest in this bag and thank you QVC for the EZ pay option! I can't decide if I want to leave the strap on or off, it looks so good either way! Love it! Thank you QVC!
TOO HEAVY !!
This is a nice bag but it is too heavy. I am a strong person, but carrying this bag half full caused my back to get out of alignment. My back is still bothering so I sent the bag back. The handbag also has a narrow opening which makes it a bit difficult to access things. The strap is useless because it does not support the weight of the bag and the strap is too long. I just can't understand why this bag is so heavy. It is a similar style to the Kingston bag but the Kingston bag is very manageable as far as the weight and access/organization. The bag is also too tall and just doesn't work for me. Perhaps you will have better luck with this one than I did.
Beautiful Sophisticated Bag
I Love my new "travel bag"! I own about 6 DB bags, & my go to bag is vinyl with leather trim. This bag IS moderately heavy BUT has 5 outside pockets & the Natural leather is perfect for sophisticated traveling with winter blacks or summer whites clothes.First DB purchase from QVC. Glad I have it! (Better quality than "C" & as good as "LV")
LOOK NO FURTHER!
This is a beautiful bag. Love everything about it. Got it in bone and it's a rich, deeper color. Therefore, it seems as though it won't be as delicate in relation to looking soiled. Trying to catch it in the pink but it's been tough. I wish QVC had a "Contact me if it comes in stock" option like Zappos offers.
One of Dooney's Best!
I own this bag in two colors...navy and teal. I'm thinking about grabbing the baby pink and bone. The bag is definitely one of Dooney and Bourke's best designs! I love the size and organization with all the pockets. It's a style that resembles the high- priced, luxury designer bag that starts with an "H". As most reviewers have mentioned, it is a heavy bag. So, I would not recommend purchasing the bag if you are someone with arthritis or other muscular/skeletal issues. I gave the bag a 4-star rating because I, too, received two bags with two different textures. The navy bag is smooth-as the Florentine leather should be. The teal bag, however, is pebble-leather all over. Obviously, there was a flaw in the finishing process. I can live with the pebble-leather look since it's consistent. I will admit, though-for this price point, the bag should be flawless!
Drop Dead Gorgeous
Wow, it took my breath away, I opened the package and it was better than I imagined. When you see it on tv, it does not do it justice. It is a bit more compact , not as large as it might appear on tv. Which I love. The leather will hypnotize you. It is real like a chocolate bar. It is the perfect size for me. Some complained that the weight was a bit much , perfect for me. I guess since I am used to carrying leather bags and ones from Dooney it does not bother me. I am so in love. The extra pockets on the outside of the bag is genius. Keep bringing this one in a lot of colors. It kind of remind you of that famous bag that can run you $10,000.00 and more. Thank you Dooney I am hooked!!!
Super durable. Travels well (I ride the bus/train). Love D&B. Beautiful bag. Have gotten TONS of compliments.
