Dooney & Bourke Florentine Leather Medium Toggle Bag
Beautiful Chestnut Bag
Looks, smells and feels beautiful. The chestnut color is rich and gorgeous and the leather is such good quality and so soft. I've never bought the same handbag in more than one color before but I got this in the natural (which is equally beautiful) and am so glad I bought it in the chestnut too. This is one of the nicest styles I've seen and my favorite Dooney even though I'm usually a fan of big bags. This is a great shoulder/crossbody style with a lot of depth for its size. I wish Dooney would bring this style out in a larger size too. I need a bigger bag for travelling. If they do I'll buy another in black. So glad I got it in the chestnut before it sold out. This color and type of leather gets better with age.
I LOVE THIS BAG
This purse is perfect! Not too big, not too small, enough pockets to keep things organized and the quality of the leather is awesome...not sure why the negative comments, if I get a scratch, I rub it right off with my fingers.. Get this bag, you won't be disappointed.
Agree about scuff marking issues with others.
Purchased this as a medium size cross body bag for a upcoming event to be hands free; although typically carry larger bags. Did not initially examine the bag as seemed properly wrapped and looked like the color (taupe) that I had expected through the plastic wrapping-my mistake. When I did open the plastic wrapping the day of the event; to my surprise there were scattered white scuff markings all over the bag. The D&B lady said to rub any scuffs with the natural oils on your hands to remove; but this did not work at all-plus there were so many. The zipped pocket on the outside of the bag when unzipped was not a full pocket--it was bunched up I guess is the way to explain it so one could really not fit anything in it for easy access except maybe a very small item like lip gloss. The problem I am having lately with the last 2 D&B bags is that they look used at the get go. One was out of the plastic and sent to me in the dust cover and the other was folded in half inside the plastic so there was a horizontal crease along the bag that looked bad. These issues are just not acceptable especially for the higher price of these bags. I love these bags but now I am skeptical of ordering again.
Not A Good Bag For Me
Mine has been sitting in my closet for over a year. I wish I would have returned it. The problem is the leather purse and the lining do not match up so the leather in the back is pulled in. It's not a good look and compromises the function of the bag. I'd give it to my sister but it is so bad! I can't bring myself to give it to her.
Not quite bad enough to return
I carried this Dooney & Bourke Florentine Leather Medium Toggle Bag in the Ivy color, for one day, and when I got home, there were several scuffs on the outside. I wish I knew how to easily get these smoothed out. My key keeper snap will not unsnap, cannot use it. I had hoped that my 10 1/2 inch Tablet would fit into this bag, but no way. This purse does carry well, not too small nor too large, not too heavy, easy to get into. For the money, I would rather not have a handbag that I have to molly-coddle, I want a bag to use every day, without worry about scratches, and I did want the key keeper function. Not thrilled with my first Dooney & Bourke experience. I will keep it, to see how it ages.
YELLOW IS NOT BONE!
Was anxious to get this bag because it's exactly what I've been looking for. Ordered the "Bone" and received a "Butter Yellow." Back it went. Nice leather, but not as soft as presented on air. I wish QVC would get their colors right so customers don't have to send things back.
Would Not Purchase Again
Like it because it hangs flat to the body and holds some essentials. Heavy for what it is, looked 'old' after a short period of occasional use, deep, but a hassle to remove items in layers. Kept it because I purchased it for a business trip & it looked too used to return after just 4 days of walking thru the skyway and locking it in a drawer.
Luxury bag in a perfect size
This bag is everything. Luxurious leather, perfect size, stylish, polished. Loved my first one in Crimson (which I notice must have sold out and was more of a wine/burgundy color) that I purchased it in Ocean Blue (which looks to have sold out as well). I am debating on getting it in Natural while it is still on Easy Pay so that I have it in a neutral color. Buy this with confidence. You will LOVE it!
Fabulous cross-body bag!
Finally a cross-body bag that is not to small and not to big. My iPad mini fits great. I'm sure my larger iPad will fit as well if I wanted. I have wanted the Florentine leather for so long but most of them were to heavy for me. This one is perfect. The leather is just beautiful. I got the natural and am very happy with it. The straps adjusted well for my 5'2" height. So happy they are coming out with more Florentine leather bag choices. Love the zipper compartment on outside back of bag. Beautifully done Dooney and Bourke.
I have several Dooneys, but this is my first in the Florentine leather. I've had my eye on this one for awhile, and when it showed up in Baby Pink, I was all in. Got it today, and it's AMAZING. The leather is ridiculous, in a good way! It's a stunning shade of pink, has great organization... If you're on the fence, go for it. I can't imagine anyone being disappointed with this bag.
I was so excited when the package arrived, until I opened it. They sent me a used bag, it had clearly been opened and used. There were no tags, and no wrapping on the straps. The toggle was scratched and there were loose threads on the top lining. So disappointing. The return shipping label had even be re-stuck on the invoice. I just can't believe they would let this happen. Back it goes, if I wanted to have a used bag I would have bought it on ebay.
The bag itself is cute, but I'm not going to pay that kind of money for a used bag, and I couldn't exchange it because they no longer have the color.
Absolutely gorgeous handbag!
This was a Valentine surprise from my sweet Honey! He chose the TMoro brown after a conversation we had in passing when viewing QVC one night.
The weather in the east last week caused a delay and I just got the handbag! It is so worth the wait! The size is perfect, the leather is soft and pliable.
Not sure why there are negative comments, but I found the bag to be just as I expected, if not better! This is my 3rd D&B bag, the second brand new one, and one I found at a local yard sale, looking as good as the day it was purchased! These bags just do not lose quality. I love, love, love this handbag.
Over the past year, I have put this handbag in my Shopping Cart so many times, and then took it out! So glad he was so perceptive and got it for me!
I recommend that when you see the color you want, get it! You will not be disappointed.
