Dooney & Bourke Florentine Leather Stanwich Satchel
This is my first Dooney bag ,I have many designer bags and I was really impressed with the leather and workmanship of this bag.
Very classic, equestrian styling.
I love this bag
I received this as an anniversary gift, I absolutely love this bag!
The size is just right and the look is stunning!
Bone = old world elegance!
I purchased this satchel in Bone and am simply stunned by how gorgeous this bag is! Bone combined with the Brown trim is such a strikingly rich combination and reminds me of old world elegance. The bone is a creamy rich color which looks even richer because of the trim. This color is one you can carry year round and look fabulous doing so, from casual to dressy. The leather has the perfect amount of softness that you expect from Florentine leather. More Pliable than the other Florentine bags I have and it begs for you to run your hands over it. Of course the leather smells yummy! My bag is slightly pebbly which compliments the bag in this model & color. The drape and shape of this Stanwich is attractive and elegant. The top started draping immediately and looks perfect. The handles have the ideal drop for crook or arm, wrist or in hand carry. Too short for shoulder carry, but it does come with the detachable shoulder strap. Larger than my other satchels, yet not too big for my 5' 3 self. I can easily fit my iPad and normal purse contents. It is amazing how much this bag holds! Typical internal slip & zipper pockets found in the Dooney satchels. I highly recommend this bag and you can't go wrong no matter what color you choose. Very happy!
I LOVE this bag! I originally thought the darker areas were black to go with either black or brown outfits but am pleasantly happy with the richness in colors and style of this bag as they are a deep chocolate brown.
I would be happy to give it a five but the only thing I wish were a little different are the length of the handles vs. the amount of room to get your wrist through without smothering the flap over portion. With that said, this would not have stopped me from purchasing again. My friends and strangers are always complimenting it as I continuing to smile each time I see it too!
The bag I received leather was scratched I guess due to the fact that the type of leather this bag was maded with shows everything... returned it the same day I received it..
Handle to short
the handle is not long enough to get my arm in. The overall bag was too small. Loved the color. Know place for my phone on the out side.
Not my style
I ordered this bag and was so excited but when I got it home I didn't care for the color. It felt "old" to me. The bag was very expensive so I decided to return it. It is so soft and the inside is really nice. Really well made and excellent details.
I wasn't looking for a new purse, but I love Dooney & Bourke and when I saw this on a Lunchtime Special, I had to jump. I received a brand new bag and I have the experience that so many others talk about when unwrapping their new Dooney. The leather is soft and the natural color is beautiful. This is a large bag, but not too big as let's say, the Florentine Satchel (the big one-which I have as well). The aforementioned bag can be too big. Nonetheless, I don't have that problem with this bag as far as size is concerned. I just feel so lucky that I was able to get it. If someone has the chance, definitely purchase this bag. Honestly, if I had been thinking, I should have purchased one for my best friend and one for my sister as a Christmas gift.
This is just a beautiful and elegant looking handbag and I have about 15 D & B handbags so I'm not exaggerating. Have been wanting one of the bone colored handbags all year and have had three styles on my wishlist but when this one came up as a lunchtime special, I took a chance and am I ever Happy I did! The D & B bone color sees to look different on each style of handbag and type of leather. I checked them out in person at my local Macys so I had an idea but took a chance with this style. I would have to say it looks closest to creme brulee and the contrast deep brown leather seems to give it an added richness. The size is a tad bit bigger than I usually buy but is very wearable and I'm 5'3". Looks great with a rich teal color and dark denim, black, red, green, even grey. A winner!! I think this color will look even better as we transition into the fall. Happy, Happy, Happy!!
New or used
Let me first say this bag is beautiful! The bone and the brown trim work very well together. I bought this bag on the lunchtime special (amazing price) as a gift for someone. I do not carry large bags but I thought this was perfect for someone else so I purchased it. When it arrived, it did not appear to be 100% new - there was neither stuffing in the bag nor was it wrapped in the usual plastic. The strap was not even in plastic and the leather seemed as if it was broken in - perhaps it was the on-air display bag. There were no scratches or scuffs on the bag, and it was very clean on the inside - I inspected it thoroughly. Giving as a gift, I was disappointed that it did not come with the bells and whistles. I wanted the recipient to have the same special feeling I have when I unwrap a Dooney. Will still give as a gift because it is a beautiful bag that I bought at an amazing price, but I have to say I am disappointed that QVC would send a "new" bag that clearly is not new. Please make more styles with this color combo, but in a smaller size, and I would purchase many for myself! And please make sure new is really new.
I absolutely love my new bag! Beautiful color, quality.... Just everything.
Love this Satchel!!
I purchased the black, great black on black satchel. I wish dooney did a black on black in the toledo leather. Nice size and very roomy without looking huge. This one is lighter than the original florentine satchel. Beautiful satchel, get this one ladies you won't be disappointed.
