Rated 5 out of 5 by LibbyAnnE Top Quality Leather and Craftsmanship
Dooney's samba leather is excellent--right up there with Dooney's florentine leather in thickness, sumptuousness and ability to take rich color. I have Dooney samba leather in purple and in tan in this size and in the smaller version. my large wallet and makeup case fit easily in both. The generous outside pocket makes my life simpler so essentials are right at hand. I always get compliments on these because of the style and obvious quality of design and workmanship. My only complaint/question is why we aren't seeing more new Dooney styles in this outstanding samba leather. I keep looking!!!!! And waiting....
Rated 4 out of 5 by HGrant Love It Except....
I've had this bag about a year now. Overall I LOVE it. The red is a beautiful deep color. The leather is sturdy, soft ans supple. As always with D&B the craftmanship is supurb. My only complaint is the dual handle straps are a tad short. I would say my arms are of average size in reguard to width and to hold the purse on my arm with these straps is almost snug. I also frequently get pinched by the handles if I let the purse slide down my arm. If I was a more voluptuous woman this would be enough for me to return it as I wouldn't be able to carry the purse on my arm at all let alone comforrably. Maybe 2" of length added to these handles would make a big difference in comfort when carrying this way.

This is the second Dooney and Bourke purse that I have bought as a gift. Each time, the recipient’s eyes widen like saucers at the beauty of their present. For this item in particular, the size of the purse is spacious without being a monstrous eyesore. It holds a great deal of items without making it into a huge backpack. Also, they have received so many compliments and looks of jealousy from other people. If you want to impress someone, give them a Dooney and Bourke purse. You can't go wrong.
Rated 4 out of 5 by QVCvie Perfect Bag, Beautiful Hardware but dull colors :(
I love Dooney and I love this bag but I don't understand why they don't offer the vibrant spring and summer colors they do with their other bags. These colors are nice but offer the peach, mint, pink, light blue with the same hardware and I'd want one of each. Will never forget the first day I became a Dooney lover. Was a teenager and this tall, pretty woman walked into a major dept store and had one on her shoulder (had the duck on it), it's a strong, beautiful look and I've loved them ever since and that was 30 years ago...wow..where does time go???
Rated 5 out of 5 by FinejewelryCKR IT IS CHERRY!
I received this gorgeous D & B bag for Christmas and I love it!
It is smaller than my usual size bags, but is great for when I, just, need my keys, wallet, phone, mini tablet, and make-up bag in it.
And, it is a true blue-red cherry or raspberry shade, which I love. I am not fond if orangy-reds.
The size is perfect when I am taking walks with my doggie (not needing space to carry more than my necessary items and her stuff)!
However, I agree with a reviewer who stated that the cross body strap is a bit short, It will better if it was, at least, 24" in length from the start.
I know leather stretches with use and time, but who wants to wait?!
All in all, it is a beautiful bag; and, I get tons of compliments every time I wear it, which is often!
Rated 1 out of 5 by Very Dissatisfied Worse Purse I ever purchased - Terrible Misgiving
Too small. If I had box I would return it.
Purse is too small. You can barely fit a full size wallet in it. The outside flap strap curls. I feel like I have a very expensive paperweight. If I had the original box I would return it. I hate this purse. It is an embarrassment to carry.
Rated 5 out of 5 by 9710 Love My New Dooney!
I ordered the new blue, love the new leather and the new lock it is a fantastic bag also love that it will go cross body, I love Dooneys I have 12 or more they last for ever and never go out of style this has plenty of room love the front pocket it isn't to heavy for me not nearly as heavy as the Italian leather. Thank you QVC for the easy pay if not for that I could never a Ford one of these bags.
