Dooney & Bourke Leather Satchel with Accessories
I have tried so many purses lately that I must be keeping UPS in business. But I love that I can do that with QVC. (Thank you, QVC!) Some of the reasons for my search are that I want a big purse but one that doesn't look big - at least yet. I think I'm getting there. And I prefer structure in my purse, but not a stuffy look. I want lots of organization. And I want it to last and be with me for years.
This purse in grey is my winner for all-around daily use and I love it. The picture is of dark grey but I received it in light grey and immediately loved it. I ignored this purse for a long time because I didn't like the way it looks in the pictures. I think it looks stuffy, or unimaginative, in the online photos. But I think it is really cute and I'm so glad I tried it! It stands up on its own, looks cute, zips closed, the zippers work fairly easily, it has great organization, will have the great Dooney strength and wear, and has a good amount of room in it. Maybe not for a huge purse person, but for the rest of us it has good room. I can get a wallet, good-sized makeup bag, tablet with cover, phone, lots of incidentals, and a bottle of water in it without trouble. I'll be able to add gloves when it's colder, but probably not a winter scarf and I can live with that. So I love it and I'm looking at another color.
This is a very cute bag but it was entirely too small for me. I like having all my important things with me and keeping my bag very organized but this bag was too small for me to have everything inside of it. I have returned the bag and I am currently waiting on an email letting me know QVC received the return, so I can place an order for another purse.
Can't walk in a room without anyone noticing my bag
Dooney is by far my favorite brand when it comes to handbags. Great quality!. I own several of them on different materials (leather, cotton-coated, nylon) and really like them all. This satchel is very nice and the perfect size, not too big not too small. Got it in black/black because all my Dooneys look the same, either with the tan color or natural (vachetta) trim. I'm happy to see some new ones with brown leather trim but hoping to see bags in colors with black trim coming out soon, waiting for them, please Dooney & Bourke listen to your costumers requests!
Keep your boxes!
This is my first DB bag. Unfortunately, within a week of receipt, the stitching unraveled from the end of the long strap. I sent it back. My second bag came with some puckering inside the lining. I'm going to keep this and see if it just needs to "relax." I did not have the puckering on the first bag.
Some random other points:
1) I'm 5'1. This is by no means a crossbody bag.
2) I really wish DB offered bags with white-metal hardware. A lot of the gold hardware is simply matronly and puts me off purchasing.
3) While I do have reservations about quality, I like the navy color, I like the size, and I would consider getting this style in another color. I would give this as a gift, but not send it direct to recipient. I would quality-check it before gift-giving.
AND I would still keep all my packaging just in case.
i ordered this handbag in black and vachetta about 2 1/2 years ago. I loved it. My college age daughter also loved it. I gave it to her. It has always tugged at my heart to order another for me. I finally ordered it again after it came out in the saddle color. Beautiful combo of saddle and vachetta and no, my daughter hasn't seen this one. She also has one of my " vintage Dooney's" from about 25 years ago. I probably have about 7 Dooney's after the (2) I have given her. It came beautifully packaged, brand new,

I was very disappointed today. Thrilled to get the Black/black that I so wanted. Disappointed I received a used bag, As all was there, nothing was wrapped in plastic. Very surprised and not sure I will keep as it is used. My Husband surprised me with the QVC box after supper as he knew how much I wanted this bag!! To his amassment he was not happy with the way it arrived either!!

My first Dooney just arrived (2 days earlier than EDD!!) and it just happens to be my birthday. This is my first Dooney and after reading the reviews I decided to splurge on it. Luckily it was on Easy Pay which made the purchase possible.
So impressed with the packaging it arrived in and absolutely LOVE this bag. I ordered the Navy and it's beautiful! The stitching and detailing is exquisite. I've had Coach bags in the past -this bag FAR surpasses the quality of any Coach I've ever owned. I know I'll carry this one for a long time. Plan to start dropping hints for Christmas that I want another one in red!
I don't think it's a heavy bag at all, but has plenty of room for everything. The front pockets are perfect and zippers work well - a little stiff, but that's to be expected since it's new.
If you are hesitating rest assured you will love this bag!!! Thank you QVC!
thought it was a great bag
I bought this bag Nov. 19,2014 and already the inside is unraveling, the thread is starting to come apart and form a large hole inside. very disappointed because I've always wanted one of their bags and I finally bought my first one, I only had it almost a year and this happen
I had my eye on this bag for a while and finally ordered it when it was on easy pay. I ordered it in the light gray. I absolutley LOVE it. Perfect size. The quality is impeccable. I would order another in a different color but will have to wait till after the holidays. I have gotten many compliments also. Ladies, if you are on the fence go ahead and get it, you can always return it but I doubt you will.
Best Purchase Ever
I love this purse and it's accessories. I'm a purse fanatic and I can say that this was a great deal! I would purchase another one from QVC again!
Perfect bag...love it!!
I just received this bag in navy and I love it! The navy blue with cream handles is just beautiful! This is my first bag in navy blue and I'm happy I made the purchase. The size is perfect...not to big or to small. The strap is a great length to go over your shoulder and the smell of leather is amazing! Love the accessories, a big plus! :)
Now I want to get the Red one as well!!
