Dooney & Bourke Florentine Leather Twist Strap Hobo Bag
Love this bag. I had bought another florentine bag and had to send it back because it was just too heavy and difficult to get into. This bag is not as heavy, made well and I love the twisted handle - goes over the shoulder easily.
This bag is a keeper. Perfect size, not too big, not too small. Beautiful leather, very glad I bought it. Very Classy and a great look for jeans as well. This bag will be around for many years.
I don't understand why this bag isn't in the shows more....I have tried a few of the Florentine styles and couldn't find my "fit" but this is it. Gorgeous intoxicating leather, clean simple silhouette, comfortable strap and plenty of room. I can fit my VB medium cosmetic, kiss lock wallet, large sunglass case, halo charger, and I didn't even get to the pockets yet.....plus it doesn't break the $400 mark! Excellent choice ! I have the chestnut just stunning!
Excellent Leather Bag!
I have been a DB girl for many, many years. I have some awesome bags from over the years... This bag is by far the best one yet! As always, I put heavy items in the bottom of the bag and hang it for a few days, then I use it. The leather is so nice I almost didn't do this step. It falls gracefully in the center, exactly the way they showed on TV. And the color is amazing! I bought this in "Natural" and it can be dressed up or down. I love the hobo chic / bohemian look with this color. I can't wait to get another color. (I don't usually do that with bags - only once before and with another DB). Oh, and I'm seeing a small softening happening already so I bet this bag will break in wonderfully.
DB & QVC Keep making bags in florentine leather with easy pay, and this gal WILL keep buying them.
NON-HOBO NOW HAS HOBO BAG, D&B OF COURSE!...
...ALONG WITH OTHER D/B I CHOSE & ALL ARRIVED WITHIN DAYS OF EACH OTHER ...THE FLORENTINE LEATHER TWIST STRAP HOBO is one I dote on for its versatility and in a color I've never had... yes, the Baby Pink, a delicate, soft color and against Navy Blue and Purple garments it makes a statement! Dooney & Bourke, I love you for the many styles and quality, which I purchased over recent months... and this Baby Twist Hobo has earned its kudos. And why not go for soft colors now and then to give variety to the spice of life... The twisted shoulder strap is unique and is comfortable with the convenience of a zip-top closure... tassels are an 'in' for fashion lovers and I love that touch on this bag. The inside pockets both back and front positions are always a must... and the special one I like is the one sporting a snap-closure. The size - width/height/diameter w/the 5" strap drop meets my short stature impeccably. I can't say that this is the best D/B bag ever, because I LOVE THEM ALL OVER DECADES OF LIFE... There is not one I wouldn't tote around, well, except maybe the ones that weigh over the limit of tender shoulders and arms or hand to my ankles! :-) Great going, D/B on this Twist Strap Hobo in Florentine leather plus so many others to choose from.
Beautiful in Blue
Just got this in the Ocean Blue and it's gorgeous. I am a Dooney girl from way back (way way back!) and have owned many over the years. This one appears to be as well made as they always are. I have no complaints. Perfect size. Would be nice to have an outside pocket but I can deal with that.
LOVE This Bag!!
This is a gorgeous and comfortable bag. The leather is amazing. I've had to return 3 Dooney bags to QVC in the last month because the leather was not top quality - they had ugly smooth/pebbled variations in the leather, not something I was willing to pay full price for, easy pay or not. Fortunately, customer service was extra nice and got me this replacement bag in 2 days and it is the finest leather of any florentine dooney bag I've ever seen. My advice.. if you receive a florentine bag that is not reflective of the quality you should have - return it and get a replacement - because chances are you will eventually get a great bag.
This style is perfect for me. I love the size, it's comfortable on my shoulder, it's not heavy but is very roomy (fits my ipad, wallet, makeup bag, brush, easily) and honestly, I'm glad it does not have pockets or distractions on the outside. I ordered it in Natural, and the leather is very smooth with some natural leather variations that enhance the beauty.
I highly recommend this bag. I also own the small satchel in Chestnut - another gorgeous bag.
Brown Wasn't A Choice
I had been waiting for this bag to be offered on Easy Pay because I saw my girlfriend's "Chestnut" bag and simply loved the color-beautiful, rich, slightly weathered and sure to go with everything. The color of the bag I received is deep brown and nothing like what was represented in the video presentation; in fact, the only features of the bag that are even close to the "Chestnut" color are the strap and the trim. I believe that representing the true colors of your products, (especially since we, as customers, rely on what we see on TV, in the videos and on QVC.com) is tantamount to ensuring that the leathers used in your bags continue to be top notch. I cannot rate the bag itself because I couldn't get past the color of the item. This one is going back.
This bag is as beautiful as it is functional. I am a girl on the go and this baby never disappoints. I get compliments every where I go by all age groups. This is my third D&B bag and I intend on purchasing more. The quality is second to none and will last you forever.
The handbag is beautiful! i got the baby pink and ladies it is breath taking but it was to just not large enough for me.
My New Favorite Bag
I got this bag in pink and it is perfect in every way. It is not heavy like some of my other Florentine bags. It stands nicely on its own and is very roomy. A zip back pocket would have been nice but not a deal breaker. Great bag.
L-O-V-E This Bag!!!
I bought this bag in black last winter and was so sad to put it away for the Spring/Summer that I just came back and invested in one in bone for the warm weather. What makes this bag so great? It has the most comfortable strap of all my Dooneys AND the bag is sleek so that it doesn't add more width to my already wide body.
QVC how about more colors like violet or yellow?
