Dooney & Bourke Toledo Leather Large Wing Shopper
A Good Bag
I needed a nice Navy Blue Leather Bag. The reviews didn't scare me off. At first glance this Bag reminded me of the grade and texture of my Granny's purse from years gone by that resembled an old time doctors bag.
When it arrived the Leather did not disappoint. Eventually I wore stiffness of the shoulder straps away by wearing it everyday. I was not thrilled with the smell at first but after a spritz of gardenia scented perfume to the interior and a week of use the leather smells just fine. D&B has not disappointed me yet
This is a nice bag
This is my first d&b. Beautifully made. The color is the perfect shade of rouge. For someone who loves the smell of leather, this bag smells fantastic. If you are looking for a truly large bag, this one if for you. By the dimensions, I didn't think it would be messenger bag large. But for the price it was doable. I would have preferred the smaller version. Unfortunately it didn't come in rouge. Then it was also fifty more. This is why I gave it a four. All in all I'm happy with my purchase. Country girls will love this bag. Stylish with a western feel.
so happy with this bag
I love this bag! I ordered it in rouge, and it's beautiful - and a great size for the price. I have not started carrying it yet because it's more of a fall color, so I'm not sure how the leather will hold up. But it looks beautiful, and mine does not smell funny as other reviewers noted. I told my friends if this bag was a man I was dating, I would marry him. :)
i love this bag!! i have several dooneys and have sent several back that were way too heavy and not what i was seeking! this does not, not dissappoint! will probably get the blue next. the one i got this time was rouge. plenty of room and great straps. i do not ordinarily do reviews!!
VERY ORDINARY .....
I RECEIVED THIS BAG AS A GIFT AS I WOULD NEVER SPEND A LOT OF MONEY FOR A HANDBAG, EVER. IF THIS BAG WERE HALF THE PRICE, IT WOULD BE TOO MUCH DUE TO THE QUALITY OF THE LEATHER, VERY AVERAGE, SOMETHING YOU MIGHT FIND WITH A HANDBAG WHICH IS FAR LESS EXPENSIVE. EVEN AS A GIFT I'M NOT IMPRESSED. WILL GIVE IT AWAY TO SOMEONE IN NEED.
love D&B but
I have a number of D&B bags that I've been purchasing for many years. However this bag smells bad. I took it out of it's wrapping and tried letting it air out but you can smell it when you walk into the room so it's going back. It's a beautiful bag otherwise, sorry to have to return it.
Classy Leather Shopper
This bag is beautiful. I have it in deep blue which is almost black and it is a striking look. I get many complements on this bag! I have not seen any scratches or marks on the bags as most reveiws are saying. I use the bag about 2 times a week and have it take a beating sometimes on the floor, tossing in the car and it's usually pretty stuffed with things. It serves the purpose as a shopper in size and durability. The process on the leather is superb and different from what you see in most common shopper. If you khow your different type of leather you can see this is guality. If you want to stay with the usual and typical then this bag is not for you.
My First QVC Disappointment
I ordered this bag in chestnut and actually love the bag design. I have one other Toledo leather bag by Dooney & Burke and love it. This bag appears to be used and was touched up with mismatching leather touchup marker. Also, the pieces of leather used to make the bag are not of the same texture or color - the front of the bag is a lighter brown and smoother texture than the back. I wish they hadn't chosen to send me this defective bag because I'm sure I would have loved a bag in perfect/new condition, which is what any customer should expect.
breaks my heart
This is the 1st time I purchased a D&B purse. I am very disappointed in the quality of this purse. I am returning it due to being easily scratch. Every time I grab it I make a mark on it with my nails. For the price I am paying for it I would hope it could resist scratches but it doesn't. I am a Coach owner, I have never had any issues with the leather quality. I so wanted to keep the purse! I've never own a D&B and I was dying to get my hands on this one!! So sad that I have tor return it.
I love Dooney & Bourke, they are all I carry and probably have 12 bags. I love the size of this bag and I love the style, so I couldn't wait to receive it. I opened the box and have never been so disappointed with a Dooney as I was with this. It doesn't even look like leather! It looked shiny and cheap and it went back the very next day!
LOVE THE BAG ...
Just went back and read all the negative reviews on this bag, and I couldn't disagree more ... bought it in the black; it's gorgeous, perfect size, and at least in the black looks fabulous ... it's become one of my favorite Dooneys, and I've got a bunch in various leathers ... I actually like the Toledo leather better than the Florentine, both for the finish and the weight and am hoping we get more styles in Toledo ... So far, so good on the leather scuffing or marring with use, and I've carried it everywhere, every day, for several months ... So I really love the bag and wanted to add my comments to the fray ...
Deserves Zero stars. Terrible purchase.
This bag is junk. I am horrified that QVC would sell this. After just a few weeks it looks like an old bag. The leather scratches easily, the leather on the straps peel, and the leather on the bag has a weird and unpleasant odor. Sending this back. I can't get it out of my house fast enough. I hate it and I'm very angry that QVC would sell it for $400.
