Dooney & Bourke Florentine Leather Twist Strap Hobo Bag
I purchased this bag in the chestnut color and love it. . I like that it is sturdy, seems like it will wear for years and years, and also very beautiful. I've had problems with large bags being bulky and uncomfortable but this one is not, it feels great and I couldn't be happier with it. So much so that I'm considering another one in a different color.
Best Dooney Ever!!
i must have gotten one of the very last ones of this bag in Crimson, and it is to die for. The leather is rich, not too heavy and just gorgeous. would love an outside pocket, but then again, the clean lines of this bag just make it beautiful, so not a detractor at all from the bag. I have about a dozen Dooneys and i might have to call this my FAVE. Well done. Bring more Crimson Florentine Leather!
Being only 5'1 and a size 2P, I am very picky in picking purses because I need to look like I can carry the purse and not be overwhelmed by it. This purse is perfect - that short strap is just the right length to have it under my arm. I have this in white and it's just soooo classy - I feel like I'm in a Ralph Lauren print ad when I'm carrying it. This florentine twist strap hobo and the florentine vacchetta mini satchel in natural are my 2 favorites. The florentine leather is addicting! There's no going back!!!
My only complaint is that these purses are heavy (even when empty) so I have to tone down what I'm putting in it so that I can carry it all day.
I just received this bag tonight, and the purchase was so worth it. I am 5'9", so after I tried the bag on, I adjusted the strap. It is fine now. I will not wait for the leather to loosen up to adjust the straps, but I know it will. The bag is new without any marks. It will need time to soften and slouch from the weight of the items I will carry, and the natural oils from my handling. I bought the black. The bag is roomy enough for what I need to carry. iPod, book, keys, makeup, glasses, cell, snack, etc... LOL. If someone says the bag is too small, they do carry bigger bags.
Ordered in navy to wear with jeans. The quality is great and I would feel good carrying with business or Sunday dress. It is nice and roomy but not huge. I love the easy pay and may order in black also. Thanks again QVC.
Classic Clean Lines
This bag is lovely. It has such classic lines, and is so clean -- all leather. That said, I do miss having any type of outer pocket, but I knew what I was getting, so no complaints there. This one is a great weight -- not too heavy. Really is comfortable and easy to carry. One odd thing - I've only carried it about 6 times (although it is out of the return period), and noticed a split in the leather. It split and peeled back a bit. So I ended up trimming the peel and filling in with a fabric marking pen. Shouldn't have to do that for such an expensive bag that is supposed to be so durable.
My beautiful D& B arrived yesterday , I'm in love. Got the natural and it's perfect in every way. Don't know how anyone wouldn't love this bag. :)
This is the most beautiful purse I have ever purchased. The chestnut leather is just gorgeous and the twist handle is beyond fabulous!! The size of the bag is perfect for me(lots of room) and the handle drop is just right. It is so much prettier than on TV. The quality of the leather is beyond belief but my most favorite part of this bag is the handle...Dooney, you get an "A+" for this one!! Thank you for the EasyPay option...I was waiting for it to go on EasyPay so I can purchase more than one bag at a time.
I guess I don't understand why anyone would buy a bag with a short strap and then complain about it and give it a negative review. The length of the strap is stated in the write up. Yes it is short, but that is the style of the bag .That being said, this bag is beautiful. Quality leather as always with Dooney and Bourke, beautifully lined and exquisitely made. I have many D&B bags, all different styles, colors, etc. and each one has it's season and purpose. If you don't care for bags with short handles, don't buy this one, but it fits over my shoulder very comfortably and I am an average size woman. It is my new "go to" bag for shopping, work, or just hanging out with the girls! In my opinion, its fabulous!
I think this is the most attractive bag I have ever owned.
Great Mid-size Bag
Sometimes you want a big bag and sometimes you want a mid-sized bag you can quickly throw over your shoulder and go. This is a great mid-sized bag that holds all of my stuff with a strong strap and nice snug fit under the arm. The florentine leather is beautiful. Great organization inside. I gave it 4 stars only because I really wish Dooney and Bourke would always add an outside back zippered pocket to all of their bags for a quick grab of your keys or mobile device. I also want to comment on all of the complaints I read about scratches on the Florentine leather. Fuggedaboutit. This is the nature of this kind of leather and the scratches easily rub out.
I received this bag just before my birthday back in September. When I opened it, it was much larger than I thought and very roomy. I can put EVERYTHING in it!! From my wallet to my Nook and many other things. The only problem I had was the scratches and one bold dent on the front. I pondered on sending it back because I've ordered in the past and never had this problem with QVC or Dooney & Bourke. However, time got away from me and I didn't send it back within the 30 days. But because it's black the dent is not super noticeable although I know it's there and I've tried my best to smooth out the scratches. Overall a good bag for the price and I've received numerous compliments. Just a suggestion for QVC and Dooney & Bourke, make sure your bags are scratch and dent free before shipping to your valued customers.
