Dooney & Bourke Florentine Leather Clayton Satchel
Preview Your Review
I first noticed the bag because of it s many pockets. when I received it my first reaction was what the heck is in the box. it is an absolutely beautiful bag but much too heavy and the leather is very stiff. I could have packed enough in it to spend a night or weekend somewhere. the handles were way to short to slip over my shoulder, which is the way I prefer to carry my bags. The shoulder strap is very thin and because the bag is so large it hung way below my hips and the weight would have made it impossible to wear in a cross body fashion.
I am in love with the D&B Florentine Clayton Satchel!!! I have one that I purchased at a D&B outlet and thought that was a steal. However, this clearance price is better and free shipping. You can't beat that. I bought the natural, marine, and the gray. I did purchase the gray before it was on clearance, but I did get it for 6 easy payments so I can't complain. The leather is beautiful, thick and sturdy. It is a large and heavy bag. So if you do not like large bags or cannot accommodate a heavy bag, this may not be the bag for you. It is so extremely sophisticated and dresses up any outfit. I can run out of the house in yoga pants, a hoodie, oversized sunglasses, and one of my Claytons and I instantly look polished (despite the yoga pants and messy top knot). I don't chose to travel with this bag as it is heavy, gets a little squished under the seat in front of you, and I take a lot with me when I travel. I will use my Tobi tote for travel. All three colors I received I love! I wish I had been able to get the crimson and the black. The marine is dark enough it almost can pass as black. Love, love, love this bag!!!
Call It Butter, Not Bone
The should have called it Butter. Its a beautiful palest shade of color with hint of yellow like butter! Anyone can have black or brown but I have a butter dooney!!!
Nice looking but boxy
I love Dooney and Bourke. This bag is a gorgeous color but too boxy for me. It is all bag. Tad too much for me. Sending back. There were 2 scratches on the front pockets. I was surprised by this. It would not have gone for full price in a retail store. Still a huge fan. Will wait for the next time.

I just received this in the mail today in the Bone color and it is absolutely the most beautiful bag I have ever owned!! The first thing I did was say I have to write a review on this bag and tell everyone how amazing this bag is. I was very nervous of the color, but something kept calling me back to the bag and I am SO HAPPY I listened! MUST HAVE BAG!!!!
Just Get It!,
Love this bag! It is my favorite Dooney so far. The brown is exquisite. I don't mind the weight (it is heavy) as I don't carry it for long. It mostly sits on desk, car seat, etc. for us to enjoy.
This bag is Omg Awesome!!! I already love to carry just about everything in my purse, this doesn't make it any better! This purse is awesome!! Actually to be totally honest I'm a bit of a coach girl and this is actually my first Dooney & Bourke purse and I love the roominess of this purse. I can actually carry my laptop and iPad if I need too, plus my make up bag!!! Dooney & QVC you hit a home run for me on this one!!! Love it!!!!!! I love the color and how it looks... This is a good one!!!!!!
I have several D&B's and this is by far my favorite. Yes, it's a heavier bag. But why would you NOT want it to have weight to it? This is high quality, Florentine leather. If it WASN'T heavy I'd be worried. There's plenty of room for my wallet, makeup pouch, sunny case and tablet. There are several pockets both inside and outside the bag, and the strap is great for crossbody. I get tons of compliments, and even more envious stares. I got it in the red, and it's a SHOWSTOPPER.
Beautiful, but too heavy...
I wanted to love this satchel because it was visually very beautiful; but when I put my things inside, it was just too heavy, and I don't have a lot of things in my purse.

I've been stalking and coveting this bag for 6 months, so when it went on sale I knew that was a sign from the handbag gods, lol! I received my bag last week and let me say that this is the best purchase (except for Bose) that I've made on QVC. The bag is the most beautiful leather and the Chrimson color is so rich. As someone who is a bag collector, from over $1500 French and Italian luxury brands to popular American designers that are more reasonably priced, this bag is now at the top of my rotation; and people won't stop complimenting me about it. As other reviewers have said, it is a bit heavy. But that is to be expected with the quality of the leather. My only complaint is that there are a couple of spots of discoloration but it's not enough for me to want to return it. The way I see it, the bag is slightly imperfect like me!
Just too big
I have several Dooney bags, but this one is just too big and heavy even for work use. Very nice quality though.
Gorgeous in Tmoro Brown
I received this last Thursday and it is a bag that I can honestly say is worth the money. It's a bit heavy as I used it to travel this weekend. I carried it throughout a mall and I did have extra things in it that I normally do not carry. With that said, it was extra heavy and if I was to travel with it again I will keep another tiny bag inside like a wristlet wallet to use if I know I will be walking a long time. I got this bag in Tmoro Brown and it is such a rich shade of dark brown and very beautiful. I received compliments on it all weekend. This bag is luxurious in looks and in quality and it will last longer than I. It's worth the money. I ordered 3 others in red, black and chestnut because I could not decide on a color and I knew the clearance price was very good. I have not seen them yet and I am sure they will be gorgeous too. I will keep this Tmoro brown one for sure. I'll have to decide on the others when I get them. I'm not sure if I need more than one bag like this one because of its weight. For me it's a bag that I will use more on trips than for every day use. However, it is so gorgeous that I may want them all and will need someone to talk some sense into me. LOL!
