Dooney & Bourke Florentine Vachetta Leather Small Satchel
Equestrian Chic Satchel
This is my first Dooney & Bourke purchase, and I'm impressed. The bag's exterior is strong but supple leather with a burnished finish that will only become better with wear, the interior, where it is visible, is velvety-soft suede. My husband chose the "Crimson" color--think a glass of bordeaux with the sun shining through it, with the suede lining and trim a vivid shamrock green. Inside there are three handy pockets, one zippered, and a wonderful key lanyard--no more fumbling through your purse for your keys! The exterior has a classic equestrian silhouette; the spare and sturdy hardware is brass. There's whipstitched leather trim on the handles and two jaunty tassels of crimson and green. These elements bring a touch of sass to classic equestrian style. Love it!
This is my second Dooney & Bourke. I have purchased them both on the easy pay plan with QVC. I absolutely love this bag! It is beautiful and soft. I read some reviews that said they couldn't use this as an every day bag and I'm not sure why. I am!
This is a beautiful bag. I will definetly order another one in a different color. Dont hesitate to buy, its worth the $. Its a nice size unless u like huge bags than get the large satchel in this style for 30 dollars more, I think. I dont like my bags too big or to small. I have 8 other Dooneys and this is my favorite. Will pay this one off and than get it in another color. The only thing that would make this bag even more awesomest is if it had a cell phone slit on the outside back part of bag. Maybe one day theyll do that.
I ordered this in crimson and it's absolutely gorgeous. The color is a very deep rich wine color, and could almost pass for dark brown in dim lighting. The leather is very smooth and soft and smells amazing. I have had this for about 5 months and this bag still looks I just took it out of the box. This bag is so beautifully detailed, I am planning on purchasing another. Thanks to QVC for allowing us women to be able to enjoy our handbags while we're saving up for them.
Very good Item I would recommend this product to family and friends
Even more lovely in person!!! Perfection!!
I knew I would love the style of this D & B purse when I saw it while channel surfing. This is my first order on QVC, and I couldn't be HAPPIER!!! I adore this purse. People have stopped me and asked me where I got it. I hope I helped sell some!
I don't have any negative remarks at all. It's roomy, soft, supple leather, and so stylish. I love that the logo is tiny and doesn't take away from the beautiful natural leather color that I chose.
What a gorgeous purse!!
Leather is impossible
I have several Dooney handbags..it is my favorite brand. However, I have been extremely disappointed in this leather. I have the light blue and the bone colors in this bag and have carried the bag (the blue one) only a couple of times and it is marked up and worse -- discolored in a couple of places--like the discoloration is coming from within the leather not from anything getting on the bag. I have cleaned the bag with professional leather cleaner and it helped a bit. BUT I am very disappointed in the bag as I am very careful with my handbags, never place them on the floor, etc. This is in no way an everyday bag nor will it be very durable. The least bit of wear definitely shows on this bag. Now I'm afraid to carry the bone colored version! Not good Dooney and Bourke!
Honestly, when I opened the package I was speechless. I love everything about this Handbag! The color I bought was the grey and it goes with everything. Just the right size for my android, sunglasses, reading glasses, wallet, small umbrella, misc makeup, keys and small water bottle. The Florentine Leather feels and looks so expensive. The details in the hardware, placement of the straps and the leather tassels have perfect balance. Everyone compliments this bag, I will definitely be purchasing this in another color. She is BEAUTIFUL!!!!!! Thank you Q V C and Dooney.& Bourke.
BOUGHT THE CRIMSON, THE BONE AND THE NATURAL
BOTH ARE REALLY PRETTY. CRIMSON IS A VERY PRETTY SHADE OF RED/BURGUNDY WITH UNDERTONES OF DARK RED GRAPES AND THE BONE...WELL WHAT CAN I SAY OUT OF THIS WORLD. LIKE A TOASTED VANILLA ALMOND, REALLY VERY NICE COLOR. WILL WORK GREAT IN THE SUMMER AND IN WINTER AS WELL.
I ALSO CAME BACK FOR THE NATURAL IN THIS SIZE. I HAVE THE NATURAL IN THE LARGE SIZE., SO I LOVE THAT COLOR.
THE SIZE OF THIS BAG IS JUST RIGHT. NOT TOO BIG NOT TOO SMALL. SOME SAID THE OPENING IS TOO SMALL. I DON'T THINK SO AT ALL. EASY TO LOOK INSIDE AND MOVE THINGS AROUND.
AND NOT HEAVY AT ALL A VERY COMFORTABLE WEIGHT
THE STRAP IS A BIT TOO LONG FOR MY TASTE SO I JUST TIED A KNOT ON ONE OF THE ENDS OF THE STRAPS (NOT TOO TIGHT) AND IT FITS FINE.
WITH THE LARGE I HAD MY HUSBAND POP 2 MORE HOLES IN THE STRAP BUT IT WAS STILL TO LONG. SO I HAD TO MAKE 2 KNOTS IN THE STRAP FOR THAT ONE. (ONE ON EACH END). BUT THIS ONE I THINK WORKS JUST FINE AND NO NEED FOR OTHER HOLES.
THE LEATHER IS SOFT BUT NOT TOO SOFT WHERE YOU FEEL YOU WILL HAVE TO BABY THIS ONE. I FEEL THAT IT CAN HANDLE USE FOR EVERY DAY.
SO FIVE STARS FOR THIS BAG
First DB purchase. Luv'ed it. Purse was too large for me, I'm petite, sold it to a coworker who love's out as I do!!!
I had to order this bag three times but ended up keeping the last one and glad I did! I love this bag - it is so soft and beautiful. I get tons of compliments! I haven't had a Dooney since the 80's and this is a fabulous bag and also bought the Shelby Shopper - both are my favorites as a former Coach bag fan...
nothing short of beautiful!!!
This purse is high quality leather. I have 6 other dooney and this is my favorite by far. Is a little heavy but holds everything you need day to day. Well worth every dollar...
