Dooney & Bourke Florentine Vachetta Leather Small Satchel
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.
I just received my bag I order the crimson which I am very happy with. The bag is a medium sized bag and is easy to carry. It can put my i-pad in the bag with no problem,. The leather is very rich looking and you can either use the handles or shoulder straps to carry the bag.
Love The Bone!
Received this in Bone today! It is the most beautiful neutral color!!!! I watched the show last Saturday with Jayne and Susan...what a choice of colors to choose! But the Bone stood out like the most richest of all colors!!! So thrilled I ordered it in Bone! I wear quite a bit of gray, beige and white clothing and this bag is perfect with any color I wear! Love the size too! Last Summer I odered the larger (big sister to this one as Jayne said) in Ivy, but it was too big! I am so glad I chose "Bone"!!! The dark whipstiching sets the bag to be even more attractive!!! Dooney Buyers....order this in "Bone"...it is gorgeous!!!
Love this bag but got 2 bags with terrible leather
I first ordered this bag "as is" and fell in love with the leather and violet color. I have numerous "as is" florentine leather bags of all shapes and sizes. And they are fabulous! Some I have ordered and returned because the florentine leather was like pebble leather but that is fine since it was an as is bag. BUT when I received a green dot on the new white bag and new raspberry bag and saw the quality of florentine leather, I WAS LIVID! For $400 a bag, I was sent 2 defects at the same time???? What on earth was the QC thinking? My "as is" bags are in better form/quality! I'm hoping QVC will make it right and not charge me return shipping due to defective leather...
Yellow is a Mustard Yellow
This satchel is a beautiful bag. It is the perfect size for an everyday bag. I love the fact that the logo is subtle. We all know a Dooney bag, I don't need to see the logo all over the bag or in big bold gold letters to know that it's a Dooney bag. So, I really appreciated that the logo was in leather and dyed the same color as the bag. Unfortunately, though, the Sunflower Yellow color I ordered came across on TV as a fairly sunny, summer yellow The color of the bag I just received is a very sedate, mustard, goldish color that, honestly, I did not find attractive at all. So, unfortunately, I am sending it back. I really wanted a great yellow bag for summer! Oh, well. On with the search!
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
