Dooney & Bourke Leather Satchel with Accessories
Classic Dooney!! Beautiful Bag
I received this handbag today in Navy. I was blown away ..It reminds me of the older Dooney purses from 10 years ago, the quality is excellent, leather beautiful, hardware very nice. It arrived packed like they used to send them, outside plastic, tissue paper and extra packing around handles, leather and inside. This is definitely not a heavy bag, and is medium in size. Cosmetic bag just as nice, and the keychain too. If you are debating, don't wait.. You won't be disappointed. Well worth the money, it will be a handbag in my closet for many years to come. Hope they make more colors for spring in this style! Thanks QVC for the easy pay option!!
I really liked this handbag. Unfortunately, it was not quite big enough for me. Also, I ordered the light grey, which was a bit too light for the coming season.
On the positive side, the leather and color are beautiful. If you don't need a large handbag, then this could be the one for you.
Just keeps getting better
I got this bag back in 2010. I have been using it the majority of the time since then. It is still in excellent condition, even though I am tough on things. I have never had a bag last 4 years, and this one still looks perfect.
I absolutely love the natural tanning leather. Just this week I noticed how much it has tanned over time and was blown away. It is beautiful when it arrives, and just keeps getting better. I wish more of the bags had this trim.
It is a heavy bag. The leather is good thick quality leather and that makes it weigh more. If this is a concern, this may not be the bag for you.
This was my first Dooney, but not my last. I have since bought a small crossbody for shopping and going out, and just ordered another large bag to rotate with this satchel. I may never buy another brand again.
Bag is big
The quality of this bag is average. I was amazed that the front zippers did not open easily and did not lay nicely. The bag is big and heavy for daily use. On the plus, I loved the color as it was richly pigmented.I am returning the bag.
I am a little confused right now. Fortunately it worked out in my favor but still. The grey swatch on the computer shows such a dark grey that it looks black. This is the one I clicked on. A couple of days later there was ANOTHER swatch for grey and it was light. I was kicking myself b/c that's the grey I wanted. Well, guess what? That's the grey I received. No big deal for me but might be for someone who doesn't want such a light grey. Just a thought. I really like this purse but holy cow it's bigger than I had anticipated. Not with width but height. The zippers in the front are a little challenging to open but I would assume once it has had some use and the leather softens up that wouldn't be an issue. I am thinking long and hard about this one whether or not I should keep it. It's so darn big. Don't get me wrong it looks good on me it's just a little bigger than what I'd like.
My key fall item
I'm loving black again & what better way to show it by purchasing this gorgeous bag in the black/black color. I love the pebble leather - perfect and lightweight for going to work in the morning, pockets in front make it easy to grab u r keys and phone without opening u r bag up. This color will show up beautifully against all the rich fall colors (purple,teal & gray).
Should Have Believed The Reviews
I really wanted to love this handbag. I chose the black one and it is just beautiful. Unfortunately, as other reviewers noted, the bag is too heavy for the narrow shoulder strap. I couldn't see how this could make a difference, but it is. I will not be purchasing D & B as this is my third return. Great handbags, but too heavy.
satchel with accessories
I purchased this leather satchel, and had to send it back. It was truly beautiful,but
much bigger than I had anticipated. I think it would be more suitable for a career woman
who needs more storage space. I also think that Doone & Bourke should look into making a Bitsy Bag like A257679. I ordered and have received A257679, I am extremely pleased with it. In fact I absolutely love it. In closing, I really would like to see the satchel bag be available in the "bitsy" bag size. Thanks again, Kathleen M. Stottle. (Mrs. Franklin G. Stottle.
Absolutely love it. It is my favorite bag! I have the black and debating to get another color.
Love this purse
I couldn't be happier with this purchase. The red color is beautiful. I've gotten a number of compliments on it already. Two front pockets are really convenient for cell phone and cash, yet secure with the zippers. Size is not to big and not too small. Opening is wide enough to access everything. Like all my Dooney's, I love the key leash. The key fob and small bag area a nice addition. And I love the flexibility of having both a full strap and the handles.
My TWO Favorite Bags
I first bought the off white version a few years ago as a TSV and loved it. Last year I got the grey bag. I absolutely love them. The zippers all work perfectly. The bag stands up on its own when opened or closed and has ALOT of room inside - more than you'd think looking at it. The leather quality is phenomenal to begin with and absolutely gets better with age.They can be zipped or unzipped using one hand. The natural leather trim also gets a great deeper patina from wear. The grey color is a gorgeous shade IMO and although I spent a small fortune to own both, I have no doubt I will continue to get my money's worth for years to come. No regrets. Classic style, fine materials, superb quality.I have alot of bags but these 2 have become my everyday choice. They can't be beat. :)
Love My Bag
Have this bag in navy!!!! One of my many Dooneys!!! Love easy pay & love Dooney!!! One of the best purchases I have made. I do not treat my bags like expensive bags & they hold up to everyday wear & tear beautifully!!! I will never buy another brand!
