Dooney & Bourke Florentine Leather Medium Toggle Bag
Love This Bag!!
For several reasons. Some people have complained about the narrow strap but if you wear it short shoulder it stays put like no other. I prefer it that way but nice to have the option. The leather is wonderful, the grey color so neutral, and cute as all get out. Think I may get another color.
Art Fairs & Festivals
This bag will be super for a day out walking. The skinny strap stays on the shoulder nicely, and with extension it is a perfect choice for cross body. The leather and interior is excellent, but design is a bag to hold not to set down. Both hands are needed to add and retrieve items. It is a darling bag and will hold everything needed for an antique show, garden tour, amusement park or zoo. The quality of the leather is superior, the Dooney hardware & stitching in mine is perfect.
But NOT in Violet......
LOVE this bag in black and brown.... however, bought it in Violet for my sister for Christmas because she loved my bags and wanted it in a purple color.....SO I tried the VIolet, but as soon as we opened it.....AWFUL!!! LOVE THE BAG if you are looking for a medium sized over the shoulder/across the chest easy to carry, then this is it!! BUT NOT IN VIOLET!!! SORRY DOONEY!! For those who love purple, they need something better!!!!
Got this as is and love it. I was lucky beautiful bag, so soft. I'm in love, the color I got was gray.. I even got a dust bag, plastic around the strap. Im very happy. Should I try my luck again. I'm sure I will. There's a special feeling you get when you know you look put together. All the compliments are wonderful too. I just got my first Dooney in Nov. and own 4 already. Love, I'm hooked.
ONE GREAT PURSE/ HANDS DOWSN
I don’t understand why anybody would give this purse anything less than 5 stars because I find it perfect, well mostly perfect but the imperfections are only my preference and not his fault. I got this larger one in the pink/violet because the navy was not available and the smaller purse which I wanted was not on easy pay. Then waited very impatiently for it to come. Well if it were not too big and too bright for my taste, I’d have kept it. But the smaller one was not on easy pay yet. But shortly after I got my purse, the smaller one went on easy pay, so I put that one on check until I could get the other one out. Now I am waiting again for the purse.
The leather is so soft. My favorite feature is where they have widened the opening to make it easy to get into it. The lining is bright red so it’s fairly easy to see inside and there is a generous zipper pocket on the outside for your cell phone. I also love how it closes; it is so unique. The loop and a toggle is such a great idea and there are plenty of pockets on the inside. And the best feature is inside at the opening, just below the facing, when you open the purse, is a strip of suede-like green fabric that you feel as you slide your hands in. I’m telling you this is the perfect purse. See the thing is, is that I have to be very particular about my purses. The reason being is I have Parkinson’s, so I walk with a cane; so for one thing the purse has to be crossbody with an adjustable strap. It has to be small and lightweight as not only am I unsteady but my spine is leaning to one side, so I need to be able to adjust the crossbody to compensate for the leaning on the opposite side. And it has to be lightweight as I have no strength anymore. So this purse works for me, so you can see, it would probably be perfect for you as well. Truly this is a GREAT purse. I CAN’T WAIT TO GET THE DENIM ONE. When I get that one, I’ll put in a review for that one as well. I am now a Dooney & Bourke fan.
pretty bag but pretty heavy
very pretty purse, but too heavy. It is heavier then you would guess just by looking at it.
I had a toggle bag like this when I was 21 years old…I wore it OUT!!! Imagine my surprise when I saw D&B had this bag so I had to purchase it again…I got the same color (natural) and this bag looks just like the one I had many years ago..its roomy and the leather is simply wonderful…Oh, by the way I'm 61 yrs young now :)
LOVE VERSATILITY & COLOR!!!
I am a huge Dooney fan and never knew QVC carried so many different styles. I work retail and with working late shifts, I could not fall asleep one night and came across this channel; Dooney was on with Ashley. I constantly travel for work and hit up every mall from Vegas to Chicago to Mall of America. My first stop is always the Dooney store. I have a Louis Vuitton purse and wallet and a few other designer hand bags, but Dooney is the only designer I buy multiple bags in because of 2 things: quality and price. My mom constantly nags me about buying another purse, but ask anyone if they know me, I love rotating based on seasonality and general fashion trends! Changing my bag and wallet always makes me feel like I bought something new. I purchased this bag because of the leather and luxurious look as well as I am a HUGE fan of the cross body. The fact that this transitions to a shoulder bag by removing the extra part of the strap is a bonus. I am super tiny, 5'4" and 110 lbs, so I get self conscious carrying big bags all the time, I want something I can wear that doesn't wear me and that is what Dooney bags do for me. The color was the violet, bright pinky purple and it's gorgeous! Looks killer with black, navy blue, I even wore it with a leopard fashion scarf, denim jacket and cream pants-so cute! Big enough for my large IPAD, blackberry (yes I still have one of those) my wallet, checkbook, car keys, chap stick, hand sanitizer and little notebook for work! The leather is so soft and you absolutely can tell you will create the shape for this bag as you wear it and it will form naturally. Those are the kinds of bags I love! I would absolutely recommend this bag and think it should be apart of everyone's purse wardrobe.
I purchased this purse after looking for along time. I was having trouble finding one I liked.
The price was a little scary to me. But I really love the purse.
Could Shop All Day Carrying This Bag
Got this in grey to make myself carry a smaller bag and because the bag I really wanted sold out. It is a true leather bag in that it shows scratches along with daily wear and tear. The leather gets that true worn patina. For those who don't like the look, I wouldn't get a smooth leather bag. Good size and weight for shopping without shoulder pain.
More than my weekend bag
I purchased this bag with some hesitation. But once it arrived I used it immediately. Not only is it cute it can also be used for any type of outing. It's not that hard leather that I thought I would have to break in and feel comfortable. Did I mention it's also roomy.
I have this bag in 3 colors, that's how much I love this bag. The leather is absolutely fabulous, you can't stop touching it. It gets better with age. The size is perfect, I can slip my iPad mini into it and still fit plenty of other items, and yet it is small enough to carry on those shopping trips. I get so many compliments too. Crazy good bag.
