Dooney & Bourke Florentine Vachetta Leather Small Satchel
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!
Not Baby Pink!
This bag was heavy. I didn't like that the zipper wouldn't open wider to be able to see more in the bag. My dooney had an area with loose stitching. I was also disappointed in the shade. It was called baby pink so I was hoping it was more of a pastel pink or cotton candy pink but unfortunately this purse was bold hot pink. I think it should be called hot pink not baby pink.
So in love!!!
I have been eyeballing this bag for a LONG time! I have hesitated because it is quite an investment. Like so many others have said, I am so happy that I finally decided to hit the submit button and order this absolutely Stunning handbag!! I purchased the baby pink color and it is so beautiful!! It's the perfect light pink color ... The detail on this bag makes it stand out, yet the silhouette makes this bag look so classy. I love the suede that is on the inside.... As well as the tassels! I have no problem with the opening of the bag. I do agree with others when they say an outside pocket would have been a nice feature, however this bag has so much more that makes up for that!! I am a self proclaimed Coach fanatic... But after receiving this D & B bag (this is my 3rd) I know I am well on my way to becoming a Dooney girl for life! I was looking for a small to medium "everyday bag" and this one is perfect!! If you're on the fence about hitting the submit button, go for it!!! You will NOT be disappointed!!!
Beautiful Bag, BUT!!!!!
I purchased this bag in chestnut...beautiful leather, beautiful color..but the zipper opening is too small to easily reach in and out to retrieve items. In this regard I had to return it! Possibly a magnetic closure would be more appropriate for many of us!!!!
nice and soft Dooney
I have about 10 Dooney & Bourke purses now, and love them all. But there is just no comparing the leathers when it comes to Florentine. The leather is so soft and luxurious and hangs on my arm perfectly. This particular bag has plenty of room as well. I always receive compliments on my Dooney bags, I love them. I hope to pass all of mine down to my daughter one day. They are so well made, they last forever and will long out last me.
