Dooney & Bourke Leather Hobo with Logo Lock and Accessories
Take Time to Read Reviews!!
I gave this bag 3 stars because it is a very well made bag, and I would recommend it only after an honest explanation...I ordered this purse in Ivy. It is a deep green, but not a dark dark green--pretty much the color on TV. I had read so many of the reviews here, but felt that because I am a bigger woman (size 14), the negative comments about it being too large and bulky would not pertain to me. However, I found all the negative comments to be true. It IS large.(and I like a big bag!) As nice and long lasting the leather is, it IS stiff. It IS bulky under your arm. It DOES slide easily off of your shoulder, even with the weight of all my stuff inside. With the cold of winter coming, I could see this bag remaining stiff for a while. It IS heavy. It is A LOT of thicker, pebbled leather. I sent it back immediately.
The positives are: It does stand up by itself. It is quality leather.
This is a beautiful bag. I have 6 Dooneys and this is one of my top purchases yet. It is so manageable and comfortable to carry all while being classy. There is so much room and just the right pockets for my needs.

I purchased the Natural about 2 years ago and still absolutely LOVE it!! I just switched back to this one as my "fall" D&B bag and still continuously get compliments every where I go. I am now buying the Hobo in the dark grey and cant wait to get it!
Very big bag
This bag is huge and heavy. It doesn't slouch that well. It's difficult to clasp, not an easy open or close. I really wish I did not order it. I've had it for 3 months now and used it 5 times. I want to send it back. I got the red. It's really too bright, too big, too bulky and too heavy for me.
Best, best, best purchases ever. I have the bag in red, navy, light grey and natural. I love, love, love my bags. Dooney & Bourke best made and best style ever. Couldn't have done better. I always get compliments when used for work or going out. Can't say enough about this bag...
Love this bag I got the saddle tan and it's beautiful...received lots of compliments from my co-worker...
Loved this bag when I first got it. But, I've had this bag in bone for about a year and a half now. I don't carry it all the time. I might carry it every day for a week or two and then put it up for a few months. Well, the color has worn off on the bottom, the handle, and in the corners of the bag where the handle meets the body of the bag. The leather also is wearing in those same places, I guess because the finish is gone. For 279.00, I expect a little more longevity out of the color and the ability of the leather to withstand mild usage.
I just received my bag in Navy and it is gorgeous, not to heavy I will enjoy it for a long time and to me it is not to big. LOVE IT! :)
Gorgeous in Dark Gray
After about 4 tries, I finally got a brand new bag wrapped as a new Dooney bag. This is by far one of the most comfortable bags I've ever carried, even being large, and full of my stuff. It sits perfectly weighted on my shoulder, and doesn't slip off. I was concerned about not having a top zipper, but I don't miss it on this bag. It is secure, stylish, and blends well with my unique style (boho chic to conservative/office to Audrey Hepburn). I tried a few colors but settled on the dark gray... it is a knock out stunning neutral that blends with everything. Dark enough to replace my black bag, enough color that it stands out. It's a winner! I wear a lot of Lori's Logo pieces, and it complements perfectly!
QVC - I have a suggestion. Most of us expect to receive a brand new bag when we pay top dollar. I wish you would indicate when ordering that a bag has been opened and returned, and perhaps take 10% off and let people have their choice when ordering. It's such a let down to open the box and see the bag wrapped in the dust cover... it takes all the fun out of receiving a brand new bag, and I send them back immediately.

Just received the hobo in black today. Absolutely LOVE it!! I hesitated a long time to purchase this because of the complaints that its too big and heavy. I am 5'2" and hate to carry a bag that feels like a piece of luggage! Finally decided to order it since I love the hobo style and the pebble leather....could NOT be happier. It's gorgeous! I will be ordering another color when spring rolls around again! Orange or Geranium....I've got a while to decide which!
