Dooney & Bourke Florentine Leather Side Pocket Hobo
like it a lot
I bought a Coach hobo last year, and I like this one better in a lot of ways. The D&B leather is a little heavier weight which I like, but it does make the bag heavier. This bag is a little big bigger than I wanted but I am getting used to it. The Coach bag has an interior divider which I do really like, but I rectified this with a bag organizer. I always look for a zip top for security when I travel. I would have liked this better if it had little feet on the bottom. I'm not a germophobe, but I don't love putting the leather right on a public bathroom/restaurant floor. The dye on the Coach bag is coming off on the bottom and around the top opening and they don't sell polish in the poppy color of my bag. Overall I'm very happy with this bag and would buy another. These bags are priced for what the market will bear rather than true worth I think, but I don't change bags much so I'm willing to pay more for them.
A little disapointed
This is my third Dooney bag. I love the style and color, but the leather on the corners, on the pocket flaps and trim almost appears plastic like. The rest of the leather on the bag is great. I am hoping as the bag wears the look of the leather will even out. I cannot recommend as a gift, if you spend $400 you expect it to look great from the get go.
Perfect Hobo! Perfect Size! Sits great on Body!
I Have wanted this bag but just didnt want to pay FULL PRICE, so I saw the Natural in an AS IS and scooped it up quickly. Recd it today in Fine Condition. Plastic was still on the handle even. I have this bag in the Red Florentine Jacquard and love it sooo much, so now I am happy with the FULL LEATHER Version. Exterior pockets will loosen with time I find and are great for even my Android phone(larger) and keys in the other. Alot of space in the interior for my purse- to -go Organizer.I am happy with the AS IS price. I think I am the AS IS queen. Thanks again!
Love This Bag!
I received this bag in natural and it is beautiful. I was hoping it would b larger than it looks and it is! It's pretty tall and def wide. Not one of the small short hobos for sure. The zipper works great and it drapes beautifully with a "smile!" one side pocket is larger than the other and both have magnetic clasps. The pocket that is closest to ur body when on shoulder is the largest and will take an iPhone 4s with cover and snaps shut nicely, but u may have trouble with a taller phone. The other pocket can b used for keys or in my case a handy place to stash coupons or receipts. Inside theres plenty of space with the usual pockets that Dooney lovers know and love. It is SO comfortable to carry. The leather strap is wide and doesnt slip off the shoulder. The dooney site says that the strap drop is 9" and I do think it's a bit longer than what it states here but I haven't measured. I am 5"6 and it falls just above my belt which is wonderful to show off a nice belt! I would NOT want the strap to b longer! Really it's the best hobo that I've had and there hasn't been many reviews on here so I wanted to let other ladies know not to hesitate if they want a great hobo!! The natural is beautiful and develops such a nice Carmel color. Scratches rub right out and it only adds to the beauty that is the Florentine Hobo!
OMG! Thank you!
I have NEVER spent this much on a bag. I saw it in person at Macy's and have been fantasizing about it for months. I finally broke down and bought it when it was on Easy Pay. I am not a bit sorry and it was worth the wait. Love the leather...very soft and smells wonderful. Oh, I will look so beautiful at work tomorrow!
I've just received this bag in the Chestnut. Its the color I've been searching for for a long time. The bag is not big (in my opinion). It fits nicely to the body. The zipper looks as if it will break at any monement and the leather is not the same leather as the other Florentine bag I have. I am very disappointed.
This bag is REALLY nice. However, it is large (I am tall and slender) It seemed to be over powering in the beginning, but the more I carried it, the more it grew on me.
one word..... DIVINE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
OMG this is one gorgeous large hobo!
Beauty beyond belief!
Intoxicating leather smell!
Comfortable on shoulder!
Chestnut color is spectacular!
Once again, thanks Dooney & Bourke for your unsurpassed craftsmanship and for continuing to make the most wonderful and best handbags in the world.
High Quality Beautiful Handbag
This handbag is gorgeous! Dooney & Bourke used the highest quality leather. I am very happy with the size as well, I feel it is the perfect "large" size, not too big. The bag is very comfortable to wear as well. The zipper closure caused a little concern as it does not seem as heavy duty as I would have liked, but no worries! The bag comes with a year warranty. You need to register the bag with Dooney & Bourke.
I purchased the Chestnut and ordered the Black. The handbag is roomy. The craftsmanship is excellent as is the leather. I am so very pleased.
Jill Was Right...
This is a beautiful bag, just like Jill said. The leather is absolutely gorgeous. I got the natural and I will use this bag all year long. Very roomy inside with great pockets/compartments. I'm so pleased with this bag and glad I got it. Thanks Dooney and keep 'em coming!!
Love, Love It
I placed an order for this handbag but decided to cancel it because I had just bought a new one the day before Dooney was on. I watched the video about it several times because I couldn't get it out of my mind and a little while later I re-ordered because I just knew I had to have it. It arrived today and it is absolutely beautiful. I ordered the black and the leather is soooooo soft. If you like a big purse that will hold absolutely everything, get this one. You won't be sorry. I took the other one back.
