Dooney & Bourke Florentine Leather Medium Pocket Tassel Bag
QUALITY & BEAUTY
The bag is of course amazing quality leather. The stitching is beautiful on this bag. The fact that it has 2 outside pockets is great for your cell phone, keys, glasses, etc. The snap pocket's ease of use and extended size is great for quick access for a boarding pass, ID, passport, or to organize your shopping receipts. The handles are the perfect length for over your shoulder while not being to long to carry on your arm. The magnetic snaps are great quality and work to secure your items while being easy to use. After receiving this bag in the dark brown I also ordered it in Chestnut. It is the perfect size for me. You will not be disappointed if you order this bag.
LOVE THIS BAG!
Now this IS a bag! Dooney does it right again! The quality of the leather is unreal, the smell of the leather makes me smile, I LOVE everything about it. I love the tassels, I love the outside pockets, yes (2) pockets, I love the size of the bag, I love the inside pockets, I love everything! Oh and did I mention I love EVERYTHING about it? I will be ordering at least one more, probably in the red. Buy this, you won't be disappointed. It's my first Florentine but won't be my last.
This is my first Dooney, but I'm sure it won't be the last. I've looked at this bag for quite some time. At first I debated thinking it might by too large, and heavy; but loved the overall shape and features of the bag. Just received it yesterday. It is truly a WOW. The florentine leather is amazing, love all the orginazation there is, and strapes are good length. I'm very happy with my new Dooney!!
I just received my new Florentine handbag today and it is absolutely beautiful!!! I ordered the t'moro brown. The size and the option of changing the bag's shape is great. It's like having 2 bags in one. This handbag is my 4th Florentine handbag. It's true as some have stated that these handbags are slightly heavier, but I say heavier meaning substantial and long lasting is great. I still own my first Dooney & Bourke that I purchased in 1995 and it still looks great and there were no cell phone pockets or lining then. I want to thank QVC for the fabulous price that I paid for the handbag which was much less than the listed clearance price. I am a Dooney Girl for life!
After watching this bag for over a year, I purchased this bag in Moss Green. It is a beauty, yes, it is a little heavy but not too much for this 70 year old woman. When I open it I can see all the way to the bottom which I like very much. The only problem I now have is which I like better, my Wilson bag or this one. Would make anyone a great gift.
OMG - Am Sooooo Happy with Bag
I have not been a big fan of D&B because I don't want to buy a purse just because of the logo on the front. But this bag has AWESOME written all over it. Not sure what caught my eye to order it, but I did and after getting it I am so glad I did order it. I did read reviews and it is on the heavy side, but it is leather folks. Have you ever worn a real leather coat or animal of any kind? They are heavy! As for the scratches people were concerned about - there again - it is leather, and I just rubbed the ones that might happen and they disappear. Now to the tassels and the opening. Thanks to one of the reviews I did loosen up the tassels so when you want to open up the bag a little wider you can. I simply loosened up the knot at the end of the one and made them hang as long as I could. Simple fix. I also like different; classy and timeless. This bag fits all things I am looking for in a bag and it will last forever!
Bag arrived today in Moss. Maybe the fact that it was the last moss available at this late date since the bag is on clearance and easy pay, should have told me something because it was badly scratched all over - front, back, sides and bottom. The bag was in a dust bag, but there was no bubble wrap, paper, or anything else protecting it from being tossed around en route in the oversized box. I was terribly disappointed as I'd been so looking forward to receiving this gift to myself. Also, although it was not shown or advertised on QVC as having a detachable shoulder strap, I wished it had. I also felt it was missing some of the detail work that D&B is known for - such as whip stitching on the bottom of the bag to balance out the whip stitching on the top of the bag and add to it's detail. It was for these reasons in addition to it no longer being available in the moss color that I returned the bag and did not ask that it be replaced.
This is a beautiful bag. Dooney's are pretty amazing purses. The red was not exactly what I was looking for so I couldn't justify keeping it. May come back one day for a different color. It's got tons of storage and great style.
LITTLE HEAVY, BUT GORGEOUS IN PERSON. KEEPER!
I AM 5'3", 115 POUNDS, 40YRS OL.D (TMI), BUT I WANT TO GIVE U AN IDEA ABOUT THE BAG. I GOT THIS YESTERDAY 9/24 AND JUST LOVE THE RICHNESS OF THE RED. THE BAG IS MORE BEAUTIFUL IN PERSON.I SAW IT A FEW YRS AGO IN A DEPT SORE, BUT PAID IT LITTLE ATTENTION. I OWN ABOUT 8 DOONEYS INCLUDING CROSSBODYS, AND HAVE GIVEN ONE TO MOM, THREE SISTERS AND FRIENDS. I BELIEVE EVERY WOMAN SHOULD HAVE AN OUTSTANDING BAG. I LOVE EVERYTHING ABOUT THE BAG, AND IS NOT TROUBLED BY THE WEIGHT. I LOVE THE HARDWARE, BIG POCKETS OUTSIDE AND INSIDE. I CAN CARRY MY TEXT BOOKS, LUNCH ETC AND ONLY NEED ONE BAG FOR EVERYTHING. I DO NOT MIND THE TASSELS. I SIMPLY ADJUST THEM IF I NEED MORE ROOM. FOR A SMALL GAL, THE SIZE IS NOT OVERPOWERING. MOSTLY, I LIKE THAT IT GOES OVER THE SHOULDER. LOVE ME MY DOONEY. THE QUALITY IS GREAT PLUS THE EASY PAY. THE LOOK OF THE BAG IS STUNNING. HIGHLY RECOMMEND.I AM USED TO BAGS WITH ZIPPERS, BUT THIS ONE IS SAFE SINCE MY ARM PLUS THE INSIDE SNAP PROTECTS IT. THE BAG IS DEEP ENOUGH TO HIDE WALLET IN THE BOTTOM. LOVE IT!
Gorgeous Bag, But Too Heavy
WOW! This is one of the best handbags I have ever seen. The leather is superb, the style is rich and the bag itself is very convenient with the outside pockets. I ordered the black and I loved all the embellishments, hardware and the tassels. A very classy bag! But it is just too heavy for me. Man, oh man. I so-o wanted to keep this bag, but it would sit in my closet and not get used. You young, strong women - go for it. Not for this Grandma! :(
I purchased this bag in red. The weight is a bit heavy, but I expected that with the florentine leather. I do not understand the negative reviews for the issues with the tassels, I was able to open them with a bit of work and made it into a tote. I love the size, style and color. I came back and ordered the white and chestnut. Love my Dooneys. They hold up to the test of time. A very good investment.
I just received my bag in white. I usually don't carry white because of getting dirty
but this is so easy to clean. Its roomy and holds everything I need. I especially
like being able to find my keys with the key strap. Its a bit stiff but I know it will
relax. I am looking forward to years of use.
