Dooney & Bourke Leather Hobo with Logo Lock and Accessories
So,you hear the hosts talk about some customers who own this bag in more than one color. Yep, that would be me! I have this bag in Natural, Saddle Tan, Black, White and the Strawberry is on it's way. This hobo is perfect. That's all I can say. I like bigger bags so the size of this bag is a non-issue for me. It's only as heavy as what you load into it. I love the leather, I love the little coin purse, I just love this bag! I just may order a couple more colors~
I remember seeing this bag when it was first presented as a TSV and thinking that it wasn't my style since I prefer satchel bags. Well, after watching the MANY presentations over the years, I was finally won over. I purchased it in red and couldn't be happier. The leather is soft but the bag isn't slouchy. I especially like that I can carry it like a satchel since the shoulder strap is not too long. The structured bottom helps keep your things organized rather that in a jumbled mess like with most hobo bags I've owned. Dimensions for this bag are given in the description and reviewed by the hosts each time it is presented so one shouldn't be surprised by the size. I'm 5'3" and love carrying larger bags.
Really nice bag!
I've had my eye on this bag for awhile now but wanted it in bone and bone is always the first to sell out. I bought this bag and it's a huge bag! I love big bags and if you do too you will love the size of this bag. It's a very good quality bag and the accessories are also great quality. The bone color isn't as light as it looks - it has some yellow in it. It's also a little weighty but I'm used to that as I always carry a leather bag. I'm 5'3, 105 lbs and this bag looks big on me but is beautiful.
Been looking at this bag for awhile and finally ordered it in Navy. Received it recently and I have been using it every day. Love the accessories that came with it. Thinking about ordering another in different color. This bag does stay on my shoulder. Thanks D&B for a great bag!!
Too Big for My Small Frame
This is a beautiful bag with many great features. But at 5'2" and 120 lbs, I have to watch the size of my bag or I look overwhelmed by it. At 17" wide, this bag is just too large for me. I read that it was this large before I purchased it, but the on-air presenters mentioned that its design allowed it to be carried by women of any size. So I took a chance on it, but I'm returning it. Just too big for a woman of small-stature. Also, the bag is a little too heavy for my liking. I decided that the Dooney & Bourke Toledo Leather Winged Small Tote is more my size of bag. I would recommend this bag for a woman of average or greater height and weight, but not for a petite woman.
Hand bag was too large and not soft and supple enough. I'm 5 ft.tall and it looked like I was holding a large tote bag.
I have this bag in the geranium and the bone. I wear the bone all year 'round in Louisiana. I am a Dooney & Bourke fanatic; I own 27 leather (only) Dooney purses.
I work as a legal assistant and this purse looks great in my office, in the conference room, at a board meeting, in the courtroom, at lunch with my (jealous) girlfriends on the weekends, and for church on Sundays. I am 5'3", 95 pounds and this is a great size purse. It holds my essentials plus my iPad during the week, a full-size water bottle and make-up bag on the weekends. The accessories are a wonderful addition, for that matchy-matchy look, like I'm pulled together.
I have been wearing the geranium for about 3 weeks now, and it looks fabulous with a navy dress or navy skirt suit for work and jeans and a white blouse on the weekend.
Highly recommended! I am looking to buy this in the Camel and not-so-basic black.
I am very pleased with my purchase! I get so many compliments on my bag.
I have been wanting this bag for the longest.Read all the reviews,pondered over and over in my head over purchase.Then one of my clients came in,with her strawberry color hobo.Double capital OMG!!!!! All doubts had been removed.I ordered mine in red.Triple love it,it is beautiful american red,roomy,good feel to the leather(which started softening up a few day of me caring it)No horrid odor,the logo lock is a gold tone that blends well with all metals.LOVE the logo lock as well.I am so glad I bought this bag,I get tons of compliments on this bag.MAIN COMMENT,THAATS A LOT LEATHER on that bag.No it is not heavy either.To sum up my review,you will be proud to carry this bag.
Need To Be Smaller
I BOUGHT THIS BAG WHEN IT WAS FIRST FEATURED. UNFORTUNATELY IT WAS TOO LARGE FOR MY 5 ft. I WOULD REORDER IF D&B WOULD MAKE A SMALLER. VERSION WITH THE SAME ACCESSORIES. PLEASE.
