Dooney & Bourke Florentine Vachetta Leather Small Satchel
best purchase ever
I love this bag I received it yesterday in dark brown it is lovely a must have will be getting it in the natural soon
First, this is a LOVELY bag. I got the teal color and it's so close to the ivy, I had to check the tag to make sure I got the right color. Was hoping for a bit more blue in the color. The color on my monitor looks less green than it did in person. I could have lived with that but there was a small scuff right on the front of the bag. It isn't particularly noticeable, but if I'm spending $400 on a bag, which is the most I've ever spent, it's got to be perfect. Next problem was that the opening for me is just a bit too small even when unzipped all the way. I know I will be frustrated not being able to open it wide enough to see everything that makes its way to the bottom of the bag. Also, and I knew this when I bought it, but it doesn't have a back pocket for my phone. I REALLY prefer having an outside pocket but could have lived with that if it weren't for all the other small things. And finally, it didn't come with a dust cover. Seriously? A $400 bag doesn't come with a dust cover? I guess I just assumed all Dooneys would come with a dust cover. So nothing major, but taking all of the small things into consideration, I'd keep it if it were a $100 dollar bag, but not at $400. Sending back and continuing my search for the perfect Dooney for me.
Liked it but it's going back
First of all, the Ivy color is gorgeous. This is the perfect color for fall and winter. I like the cross-body strap too. And the small satchel size is perfect. The downsides; the handles do not offer a lot of room to put your arm through unless your arms are quite skinny. And the zipper opening is not all that wide either. Once I got the zipper completely opened, it took two hands to close it. Unfortunately, the bag is going back.
Amazing quality, affordable price (especially on easy pay:), great style. I ordered black and violet, received both today and cant wait to use them. I already own it in Baby Pink, Kelly Green, Moss and Red. My collection is now complete, I think, may come back for Navy :):):). You will not be disappointed. Happy shopping!!:):)
I have this bag in the color Ocean Blue and I love it. One thing to note about the Ocean Blue is that the color shifts depending on the lighting environment; it is not the bright blue as depicted on QVC; it is more subdued than that. This bag has more than enough storage and does have some weight to it but it feels nice in the crook of the arm. The reason that I gave this bag 4 stars is because this leather is quite susceptible to water damage. I got caught in a brief rain down pour and it left rain spots that do not come out despite having had almost a week to dry. This leather obviously needs some sort of treatment despite what the Dooney says and I've already informed them of the issue so hopefully they can make a suggestion. Other than that this is certainly a quality bag that will garner many compliments.
I love this bag, it's the perfect size though not a large bag it holds all of my many items with room left over. Looking to get another color.
The bag is gorgeous the leather is such a great look and feel. I would recommend this handbag to anyone who loves GREAT quality leathers. I must mention QVC's customer service is one best service I have encountered I am an out of country buyer and they took the precautions to make sure I was the one placing the actual order which made me feel like they cared about protecting me and themselves.
OMG.....WHAT A BEAUTIFUL BAG
I am so happy with my purchase this is a beautiful and well made bag. In the 80's I had dooney and haven't bought one since then I forgot how nice they were and actually very stylish. It's the perfect size. Just love it. I wish qvc had the wallet to match it. I bought the brown tmoro and it's gorgeous and accent colors r beautiful to. On the video they have the browns mixed up I almost bought the dark brown when really I wanted the brown tmoro which I'm glad I looked again. Could be confusing.
Nicer Than Expected!
This purse is my first Dooney & Bourke and I couldn't be happier with my purchase! I bought the bag in navy - and it's a true navy (nice & dark). The leather is soft and in perfect condition - no scratches or scuffs at all. But what really makes this bag stand out in my opinion is the hardware - it's quite substantial and the goldtone looks so sharp against the navy leather. The maroon leather contrast stitching on the two handles is a very sharp-looking accent as well.
I'm really glad that I didn't let some of the reviews talking about corroded hardware stop me from ordering this, as mine is thankfully in perfect condition - not even the slightest blemish or scratch.
Yes, this handbag is expensive (to me, anyway) but there's no doubt that it's very high quality and it should last for many years. I think it's worth its price tag.
Best purse ever!
I'm a big bag kind of gal. But this is literally the perfect size! I was afraid it was going to be too small but it's not! It's perfect in every way! This was a gift to myself for making the Deans List when I went back to college. It's soft, but holds it's shape. I get tons of compliments and I swear the bag gets better with more use! I'd totally buy this bag again!!! You won't regret it!
Best Bag Everrr
This bag is by far my favorite and most used ! It is the prefect size, not to big or to small. The brown goes with everything. I just loveeee this is bag!
What a GREAT BAG!
LOVE MY NEW D&B BAG!!!!! It's absolutely beautiful. I usually buy black bags, but I got this one in brown and I'm so happy with it. I have bags from other labels, but as always, none of them match D&B's quality. Love this bag!
