Dooney & Bourke Florentine Vachetta Leather Small Satchel
In love with this bag
I am fairly new to DB but with this purchase I am now a DB for life. I got this in the violet and while I would call the color orchid the fact remains the color is amazing! The leather is so soft and I can't wait to watch the leather start to age and develop the beautiful patina. Well worth the price I know I will have this bag for years to come. Thanks DB for another great bag.
I just received my marine satchel and it is beautiful. The leather is smooth, soft, and a gorgeous deep blue. This bag is only a few inches smaller than the medium satchel but much lighter. It does have some weight to it because it is made of high quality leather. Inside the bag is well organized with a zippered pocket and three open pockets one of which is the length of the purse and the other two divided for a cellphone and quick cash or whatever. It also has the key keeper and the long strap and dust cover to match. I also received the Florentine phone wristlet in marine which matches perfectly and holds my Samsung Galaxy 5 with a cover on it. I am happy, happy!
Received the bag today. It wasn't wrapped in plastic. It was probably a returned bag. If you are paying this price the bag should be in it's original wrap. How do I know who had it before they returned it.
So this is my 3rd D&B and my favorite. This bag is perfection, not too big, not too heavy, the leather is like butter, so soft. I got the denim color and it is beautiful, will be perfect with more casual outfits as my other bags are more dressy. I swore I'd never pay big bucks for a handbag but I'm now hooked. But, I will say that they are worth the investment and are classic pieces that will work for years and years. So happy QVC has 6 easy pays otherwise I could never treat myself, thanks QVC!!!
This is the perfect bag, I am so in love! It is just the right size, I don't really like big bags or little ones.. This is the perfect size... This is my first Dooney & Bourke bag and it is AWESOME! The leather is incredible, if you are on the fence GO FOR IT! You will not be disappointed!!
Excellent small satchel
This is my first florentine leather and I love it, this bag is as big as my zip zip, and my domed satchel in the pebbled leather. It's so pretty and it's not heavy to me the zip zip pebble and this one are the same, I bought the chestnut color and it's fabulous, a nice dark brown, to help others I posted a video on YouTube that helped me. It's a great buy. Hope I helped
YELLOW IS MUSTARDY, NOT A BRIGHT YELLOW
For some reason my original review was deleted by the powers that be so I will try to repeat it...
Bought this bag in raspberry and I love the color! Also love the look and feel of this florentine leather. There's nothing else like it. I'm 5'3 and the bag looks & feels right when wearing over my shoulder or crook of my arm. For this particular satchel I will give 5 stars, but...
Also purchased what was supposed to be the "sunflower" color. I was not happy when I opened the box. The color was way off... It was the color of dried-up mustard. It doesn't look like the same bright sunflower yellow as presented on tv. Also, it looked like someone else received the bag before me. Stuffing was found outside the bag and wrapping was loose--not the typical new-bag wrapping from Dooney.
One star for poor quality control on the color of bag and for the simple fact that I had to pay for shipping & handling charges to send the mustard yellow bag back to QVC.
I am so in love with this bag. I got it in the Denim color and it is so perfect. The quality of the leather is unmatched, beautiful, soft, and I cannot find one flaw in it. The color Denim allows the bag to have a more casual feel to it which is what I was looking for. I doubled the strap, added a hanging charm, and really made her mine. I'm finding it hard not to immediately order another color. Dooney & Bourke is so addicting! I hope they come out with the color fuchsia in this bag at some point in the future.
WOW WOW WOW!!!!
i know there are a lot of reviews for this bag, but I have to add one more. Just received the Ivy today. I buy a lot of investment bags, including Dooney. This is the most beautiful, luxurious, rich looking bag I have ever SEEN much less owned. Ladies, jump off the fence right now. This bag will last my lifetime, my daughters and beyond. The ivy color is gorgeous, the leather is gorgeous and it's the perfect size. I will look and feel like a confident, pulled together, classy lady when I carry this. I will own more colors of this bag! It is an investment, but you get so much more than you pay for in quality and beauty. THANK YOU to everyone involved in bringing us this fabulous bag at a price (and easy pay!) that we can afford.
Did Dooney & Bourke change their Quality??
First I would like to say how very much I LOVE DB!! This is my second color in this bag and I dearly love the look, the feel of the leather and the added assurance of quality in this bag! When I unpacked it from the shipping box, nothing was wrapped in plastic as my other DB bags had been. There was no wrapping of the handles or hardware of the bag. The shoulder strap was not wrapped at all -- it was just laying in the bag loose. It was put into one of the blue storage bags, stuffed with lots of paper as well as the long handle. Wondering if DB is cutting back on their attention to detail --- or did I get a "As Is Bag" in place of my supposedly "NEW" bag?? I've called Customer Service and informed them of this situation. Decided to keep this bag because I really like it! BTW -- believe Marine color is not the new Black!! The color is deep enough to pass as black and will go with everything!!
When I received this Dooney Florentine Vachetta Leather Small Satchel I couldn't believe how beautiful the crimson color was. It is a classy handbag and I will be proud to carry it!
Even though it says small, it is more of a medium size and is the perfect size. Thanks Dooney for such great handbags and to QVC for the easy pay!
I love the "small" satchel!
This satchel is smaller than the large one, which seemed too large when I looked at it in a department store, but is plenty big enough for my regular purse items plus my pocket planner. I don't carry the planner everywhere, but carry twice a day as I go to work and go home from work. I used to carry it in a separate bag which was a pain in the tukhus. I am so happy to have this beautiful bag that carries everything and looks great doing it. The Florentine leather is beautiful. I got my bag in chestnut and could not be happier with the choice. This leather does show little scratches, but they don't last. I get soooo many compliments on this bag.
