Dooney & Bourke Toledo Leather Large Wing Shopper
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.

I like this purse; however it scratches very easily - I have to buff it on a regular basis
I don't know if I am more angry or shocked. I have been carrying this bag for about 3 weeks and just loving it, and then today I noticed that the leather on the handle is like cracking and peeling, and not just a little bit, a lot! I didn't keep the box or paper work because I am a long time Dooney customer and have never ever had a quality issue with a Dooney bag. Now I am stuck with a very expensive bag that I would be embarrassed to carry. DO NOT NOT NOT BUY THIS BAG! I am so shocked, you could knock me over with a feather. Don't even know what else to say, except I will be paying on this bag for another 4 months. Wow!
Loved it but......
I agree with many of the other reviewers, I wish there was at least one outside pocket.. I love this bag, the shape, the colors, the straps were just quite long enough to go over my shoulder, but couldn't keep it on my shoulder with a coat.. I bought this for a winter bag but it constantly falling off my shoulder was a problem, I like for my handbags to stay on my shoulder, I'm not a "crook of the arm" person.. to spend $400+ I needed to love this bag, but sadly it will have to go back.
I was very disappointed with this bag when I received it. I wish I would have paid attention to the reviews I read. The bag looks like it is made of vinyl instead of leather-it looks CHEAP. I have 3 other Dooney bags that I love. I hope Dooney and Bourke does not continue using the type of "leather".
very good handbag---except, needs an outside pocket, and ditch the tassels.
Love the leather, the handle length is great, color is great, overall shape is
very nice and holds what I need to carry without being too big. NOT the huge
handbag of some DB styles.
Needs A Pocket
Luv my Dooneys, but like a lot of Dooney lovers, I need an outside pocket and none of your new Toledo leather items have one. Why not?
Dear Peter Dooney;
Love your bags! But henceforth and evermore I absolutely refuse to buy any bag that is missing an exterior pocket. Take off the decorations/tassels if you must. There needs to be a pocket!!!
Love this bag
I chose the chestnut and I absolutely love it. I need to spend this kind of money wisely and I am so pleased with this bag. I spent a little time manipulating the handles to make them more pliable and I love how they feel now. I love it more each day.
Nice Style.. but...
Nothing pains a Dooney lover as much as having to send one back. I really like the style of this bag (DESPITE NO OUTSIDE POCKET) and the weight was great. With that said.... the bag felt cheap to me. I could smell the great leather but it FELT like plastic. I couldn't wrap my mind around paying 400 + for something that I want totally happy with. PLUS the Dooney emblem was ever so slightly crooked and it drove me nuts because I feel it should be perfect at that price .
Love this bag
I purchased this in the black. It is a beautiful bag. So many bags are too large and I kept passing them up until I found this one. Just perfect. Classy, soft, yet structured. It's my new favorite Dooney.
