Dooney & Bourke Florentine Vachetta Leather Small Satchel
I actually feel affection for this bag!
It's not healthy - my obsession with handbags. And this bag is really, really high on my list of favorites of all time! I have owned this bag in the bone color in the past, so I knew I'd love the style. I wanted the grey for my winter neutral. I couldn't find it ANYWHERE. I found one here at QVC! Thank you QVC! (I think I got the last one because now it's sold out.) It is the perfect color!
This bag is the perfect mix of classy and casual. (And the very best part is the feel of that suede every time you open your bag!)
I like that I can carry it three ways: grab it by the short handles, throw it on my shoulder, or sling it crossbody when I'm walking longer distances (such as when I'm shopping).
This bag arrived on a day when I was having one of those yucky days at work. I opened the box and it just made me smile. The smell and feel of the leather and the adorable style of the bag just made me happy. I even took a picture of "her" sitting in my passenger seat. Crazy? Yes, but this is just a simply great bag! :) (Now I need a new wallet to match her...)
Bought in natural, and the color is beautiful. Florentine leather is the best of the best! Only two changes I would make -1) cell phone pocket on outside and 2) zipper should be longer. When trying to get into bag it's restricting with current design. Not enough of a negative to be a deal breaker though. I'm keeping it!
Gorgeous in Gray
I have enjoyed this small (actually more "medium") satchel in black for a couple of years now. The weight and overall size of this bag is perfect, IMO. Just not a fan of the "mega-bags". When I saw the gray, I had to have it! My first gray bag that arrived was scratched and had strange white streaks. My second one only had a couple of small scratches, so I decided I could live with it, plus I really wanted to start carrying the bag! I have a feeling this version will be easily scratched, unlike my black version which seems more pebbled. However, that is to be expected. Somehow the gold hardware with the gray just is beautiful. Love this style and am already lusting over one of the blue shades. Must practice self control!!!
I love it!
I do really enjoy this bag. It has the right size and plenty of room inside. It is a bit too heavy for me, due to the solid hardwares and the leather. I just have to watch what I put in there. Still, I use it often, and find it very flattering! I got the blue.
This is only my second D&B bag. I'm not doing cartwheels over this bag, but it could be because I am so in love with my Samba Leather Satchel in cherry red. I got this bag in the green and it's nice. I feel like it's a little more conservative and matronly than the other bag. I think that's my issue. That being said- it's a good dependable bag. The size is good, the quality is amazing and there is lots of room and organization. I do really like the bag, I'm just not in love. If you are a fun gal- get the Samba Leather Satchel in cherry red and you will be thrilled. If you like a conservative look- this is your bag. At any rate, it is D&B, so how wrong could you go?
I bought the dark brown and love it. I have sent back multiple other brand bags because i am picky, but this is a keeper. I love the leather, cross body style and size.

I ordered this bag in Crimson after waiting several months. I was more than pleased when it arrived. The color is perfect and the bag is not small like the name suggest. I enjoy a large bag and this one did not disappoint. It has a lot of room for everything I need and want to carry.

For years I have admired Dooney & Bourke bags but never could afford one until now & I am now addicted to this brand! I absolutely absolutely (as Lisa Robertson would say) love this satchel. Only had it three days but can't get over the comments I have had.
Will definitely be back for more bags. THANK YOU QVC!
I've had this bag for a while now. I bought teal which looks like it did in the presentation. Love it. It's the one that can be worn with everything. It's a bit heavy but not overwhelming. I saw the presentation last night and told my husband I'd like one in every color. Of course, he just laughed.
Best Birthday gift!
Recently went shopping at major department store, where my wife showed me what she wanted as a future gift. There were (3) Dooney & Bourke purses that she showed considerable interest in, raving about the quality of the leather. I hurried her along, because we were shopping for "My birthday gift", plus I never buy in front of her. However that same night scanning through the channels alone came across QVC's- Dooney & Bourke presentation. Not only did they have the purse she wanted, but also in a variety of colors. I was able to get all three that she was raved about! (and for a guy at a lesser price and on the convenient flex pay-AWESOME!!).
It so happen that the UPS guy delivered the packages on my birthday, she's thinking that I purchased more electronics or something else I really didn't need. The look on her face was priceless! She was so excited, I was very pleasantly surprise of the shipping and packaging quality and the overall condition of the purse. Even better than the department store. I was very happy in the overall experience. Highly encourage other men to do the same. Future brownie points.

I received my bag, today!! This is my second Dooney bag and I'm in love all over again!!! I love big purses but I must say, this purse is a great size and the natural color is breathtaking!!! Thinking about ordering one more!!!
The bag is beautiful, but the handles are too small and no pockets. I have to return it.
