Not gonna lie, the magnetic closure flap weirded me out when I first unboxed it and I know the side zippers are trendy (I think to add room) but these didn't seem to add much.
But overall I just loved it.... wasn't even sure why at first. I was carrying a drawstring dooney... a higher end one but didn't notice any dif in the leather quality. The handles on this could be considered cheap looking but it seems to me to be to keep them simple so the side and front tassel zipper stand out more.
I had it on my bed, turned to pick it up to start loading and without any thought at all grabbed the shorter handles. I was instantly in love. It was like they were waiting patiently, doing their duty to be available to pick up. I know... sounds WEIRD
Got it loaded, the ONE and ONLY thing... I would LOVE it in a larger size. I know others had commented on the weight so maybe that's why... I might check w dooney, I love it that much.
So daily use, after using the flap a few times it is the most intuitive closure I've ever experienced in a bag. Lol yea WEIRD again ;) even though I do have to lift it out of the way when necessary it's just NEVER a hassle. Never! I have no idea why.
As much as I love my logo lock, theres always the tiniest bit of effort to open & close. Same for my most recent dooney. I swear this one just says, oh, you're done? Ok I'll close now. Snap!
Inside zipper pocket... easiest interior pocket I've ever opened. Not so much as a cm of extra fabric to make it put up a fight.
Outside zipper pocket... holy cow... PERFECT place to keep my phone. No more racing to try to get it when it rings. (I have a 6s plus that pretty much maxes it out, might fit a little larger one with its accordion side of the pocket)
I've been wanting to review this for awhile now but today did me in... see the pic... I was shopping w my husband, I'm new to reading glasses so I always have to take them off, put them back on, you know... it was cumbersome as usual when I looked at my bag and said hey, I'll stick them in the side right there. But it was too tight and that's when I went omg and unzipped it.
I dunno, out of all the bags I've ever owned I've never carried one that felt intuitive, like someone truly put thought into every bit of it.
I've always loved dooney, since I was in high school in the 80s but this one... it has completely redefined what a mid-level luxury bag can be.
Rated 5 out of 5 by empressofmarketing Love This Dooney The More I Carry It
I bought this Dooney in April 2016 in the Geranium, carried it a bit, and then put it away for summer. Brought it out in October again. I travel a lot and always carry a huge tote bag on the plane. My last trip I carried this bag instead, looked a ton more fashionable, and it was great! Held a Samsung 6 in the front pocket, an iPad, notebook, ticket, crossbody wallet and was not heavy or bulky. I personally like the straps attached and the flexibility it gives me to grab the handles or sling it over my shoulder. I also love the leather, much nicer to me than the shiny Saffiano, and I wish Dooney would make more in this leather (help, Sue!) All in all a very versatile bag!
Rated 5 out of 5 by teachercreature99 Perfect Bag!
This is a perfect medium sized bag! So well organized, light weight, and so stylish! I ordered the white and received so many compliments ( beginning with my daughter, who is quite the fashionista.) I was sad when summer was ending because it meant I would have to "retire it" for a while ....am going back for another color!!!
Rated 5 out of 5 by Busy Mom of 4 LOVE IT
I'm not sure why this bag is getting negative reviews, I love it. I bought the black and it's gorgeous. It's very well made, like all Dooney's. I love the leather, the texture, the color, the feet on the bottom, I love it all! Thanks for another great Dooney bag! I'm a Dooney girl for life!
Rated 3 out of 5 by 3060 Feels Like Plastic
The bag is a very nice color and size. The look is great. The feel is cheap. It is leather but feels like plastic. For the price the long straps should be removable.
Rated 4 out of 5 by tinkermouse Not right for me
I'm always really good about reading all of the details about sizing, etc. and I ordered this anyway even though I thought it sounded like it might be too small. It was on a free shipping offer so I tried it, and sure enough it was too small so I sent it back. However, it's a really cute bag and if it was just a bit bigger I'd totally have kept it. Nice leather, nice layout, nice organization, and super cute.
Rated 3 out of 5 by StephanieManley Don't look too deep
Is this bag, stylish? Yes, resoundingly yes. Why do not love this bag? The bag feels cheap and like plastic. The shoulder straps are super thin. They feel like they are plastic or leather scraps that were bonded together.
I don't mind paying for a nice purse, but I struggle when they feel like I got them from a discount store. It's great from a distance, but it feels like plastic. I don't buy another one online.
Rated 5 out of 5 by PrivateTeacher Love It Even Though I Tried Not To
Let me start with saying, I've never left a review. I don't know why, but I purchase and move on. Also, I've only discovered and fallen in love with D&B bags within the last 2 years. My first D&B was a European Leather Sophie Hobo and I still love it.
While considering this D&B bag, I liked the look on TV but more I looked online I began to think maybe it wouldn't be so lovely. Nevertheless, I reluctantly ordered. When I received, I tried my best not to like but fell in love. I will tell those considering that it is a different leather and texture but quality nonetheless. It's not pebble and not Saffiano tough...to me it's right in the middle. I ordered the saddle color and love, love, love!
Thanks D&B for a lovely bag that I've received tons of compliments on. Will be ordering in another color soon.
