Dooney & Bourke Pebble Leather Convertible Shopper Tote w/ Accessories
I chose to buy this bag on clearance to make sure I got the accessories. It was also on easy pay and free shipping. I hadn't had any "as is" experience at that time. I have now and wouldn't hesitate to purchase "as is" rather than clearance, unless I absolutely needed to have easy pay. QVC customers are very conscientous in repacking and returning products as they received them, for the most part.
I ordered the navy, it's beautiful, it's soft, smells good and I enjoy carrying it. I did have an extra hole punched into the top part of the strap to give some extra room. That helps to keep the keeps in place too.
Gets heavy quick
The quality of this bag is nice hence weighing it down a bit. Once you fill it up it gets heavy real quick. If you are looking for a roomy bag, this is your bag!
Is not a WOW...
I dont like the zipper... and is not what i was looking for... Is my first Dooney and i want something different.
LOVE THE BAG IN NAVY. NICE ZIPPER PULLS AND NICE HANDLES. NICE ROOM INSIDE BAG FOR THE FUNCTIONALITY. NAVY IS TRUE NAVY. RETURNING THE BAG BECAUSE I THINK I GOT A USED ONE FROM QVC, AS THE BAG WAS NOT WRAPPED AS MY OTHER DOONEY BAGS FROM QVC HAVE BEEN AND THE HANDLES I AM CERTAIN WERE USED AS THE WRAPPING WAS NOT EVEN ON THEM. I WANTED A BRAND NEW DOONEY.
Nice bag...but not for me
I have 7 D&B. I wasn't crazy about this bag at all. I like a thicker strap...a bag with more substance. This bag just didn't deliver that. You know that feeling when you just HAVE to have something? Well this one was not screaming out to me to keep it. I'm not saying that this is not a good bag. I've spent more than twice as much for other D&B. This one just doesn't have that wow factor...It didn't impress me at all. Back it went.
Thought i wouldn't be as pleased as I was. Nice bag. not heavy. good deal.
Not for me....
I ordered this bag to serve the purpose of an "everyday" bag but it is to small for me. I thought the price was great so I jumped on it. I received the bag today but was disappointed with the size. I need a bigger bag & the straps are way to short. It is a beautiful bag and the color is gorgeous just not big enough. Such a shame I will probably be returning it. Maybe I will try a shopper next time. I will be visiting the outlets in DE soon and will try my luck there!
Love This Dooney
The pebble leather is fantastic! It is supple, yet sturdy to retain its shape. Its a large bag that works well as a tote but can be easily cinched up to use as a shopper. I got the Navy, simply gorgeous!!
I originally got this bag in dark brown only because the black was sold out. The brown was gorgeous and came with no issues whatsoever. It must have been the first time it had been sent out because it was packed beautifully! Then the black came back in stock and since I LOVED the brown so much I ordered the black which was a BIG MISTAKE! The black had ugly creases and the leather buckled when it was snapped closed. It looked really bad -- it is now on it's way back and I certainly hope no one else gets this bag sent to them. D&B should be very disappointed in the way this bag was sent out by QVC as far as the packaging. I know the bag had been returned before being sent to me (which would have been OK) but I feel there should have been more attention given to the re-packaging-- it was just in a plastic bag with no packing or protection at all!! Please take better care of these beautiul bags when packibg them and sending them out to paying customers!!!
Nice, quality leather
I got the dark brown color. I think the measurements are slightly smaller than listed. I love the leather straps-thick and sturdy. The small pouch is a nice addition, as is the key fob. I would buy more colors (just ordered the navy blue color also) if they should become available. Would be estactic if it were just a little wider for all my stuff.
Beautiful and Just the Right Size!
Received my Dooney purse on Saturday and have fallen in LOVE. I see why so many people swear by this brand. The leather is beautiful and supple, yet sturdy. I was a little worried about it mabye being too large - but it actually is a perfect size. It can hold a lot of stuff and still not be too bulky. Or you can carry only the basics and it still lays just right. I can't say enough wonderful things about this bag. I am really glad QVC had it on easy pay so I could afford to purchase it!
The bag is beautiful. The straps should be about 2 or 3 inches longer so it can comfortably fit over your shoulder with a coat on. That is the only negative I could find. Like all Dooney and Bourke bags, they are little heavy before you put anything into them. I guess that's because they are built to last forever! However, I do NOT find it to be too large as some have remarked, because I like big bags (and have several others that are even bigger)- and this one is not overpowering to look at, it just looks like a normal sized bag. Was getting ready to change my handbag this weekend and pulled this one out (still in the package) and the quality can't be beat! If you have never tried a Dooney and Bourke bag, you should. You will still have the bag 20 years from now in good shape...they are built to last! You can "feel" the quality in a Dooney & Bourke bag and no other company can compete. I do wish it had a zipper top, but overall, it is an outstanding exceptionally well made bag!
