Dooney & Bourke Florentine Leather Tassel Satchel
The Perfect Purse!
This is my first Dooney and I love it. I was hesitant to buy a Dooney and Bourke because I'm a purse junkie and change my purses frequently and I could not justify the cost for a handbag I might carry for a week or two and then switch to something else.
Well, I have been carrying this purse everyday since I bought back in April and I don't see myself bagging and shelving it anytime soon! I even went on vacation and packed a cross-body but used it only for an hour and switched right back to my Dooney.
This bag is gorgeous! I love the substantial Florentine leather and the wide band of green suede on the inside - very lux. I have it in natural and it just started to darken a little, kind of a honey shade. When I got the bag it had some scratches around the zipper area but I didn't care as the bag was pretty darn perfect in every other way. I also don't get the comments about the bag being too heavy or that the shoulder straps being too short. I think the weight is fine and I don't have an issue with the straps at all. I like the East/West style because I carry the bag on my shoulder and put it behind me arm where it rests on my back and where it can't "swing" forward, if that makes any sense. Also, the organization is spot on. Love the attached key fob - never lose my keys, inside pockets are generous and my items stay nicely in place and the red cotton interior is fresh and bright. But the best thing is, when you unzip the bag, IT STAYS OPEN! No more fishing around for my wallet, keys, etc. Gosh, I don't think I can go back to the 'puddle/slouch' purse again.
Love, love, love!
Makes a statement
This was my first Dooney & Bourke purchase and I decided to go big so I can carry it when I travel and need lots of packing space. The bag is heavy (thus 4 stars), but SO beautiful! The leather is gorgeous and the interior is as roomy as I had hoped. I get lots of compliments but mostly I just love it myself. So glad I bought it and I look forward to saving up for my next investment!
The bag was absolutely stunning and the leather was incredible! I had to return it because the bag was way to big for me and heavy (empty)! I love big bags but this one was just too much for me. I wish they made the same style just smaller, I would buy it immediately!
love this bag BUT
love this bag ordered in black .. the only reason that it did not get 5 stars is because i could tell that this bag was a returned bag.. the dust cover was surrounding it and not plastic.. the bag was filled with half the paper .. i know this was a clearance item , but this would have never happened from D&B .. i will never order another from qvc.. so disappointing.. i almost want my money back.. very upset...
This is my first Dooney. I love my Tignanello leather bags but I've been watching every Dooney presentation trying to decide the perfect bag to start with. I love the rich brown of the Chestnut. The Florentine leather is so soft. It smells WONDERFUL! The red lining is pretty and the green flannel at the top so classic. All the details are pretty. The bag is much bigger than I thought - true to the dimensions listed but I didn't realize how big it was. My iPad will fit (in its case) without emptying other contents. I love the way the top folds. And I love that click of the feet when I set it on the counter. This is my first Dooney but it won't be my last. Thank you QVC for giving us easy pay!
Again A Fav
I bought this bag 2012... At the same time I bought a smith bag too. Luv both bags .. The leather is to die for..this one is alittle smaller than the smith bag so I use it for summer when I am not carting around the winter gloves..etc. so now it has been used for 3 Connecticut summers and looks so wonderful ..the leather has worn and become soft and broken in..I bought the natural and luv the color more now than when I recieved it.. I paid full price and I am looking at it once again now that it is on clearance .. I would buy it again at full price. It is a rare thing to have a handbag for mult years and like it more now.!!!!!!!! Spend the money... was a purchase I do not regret... Look another one will will be coming with the ups guy ..for me!
sophisticated and classic
This bag is beautiful. Very classic looking and comfortable on the shoulder. Size is perfect. I usually wear hobo shaped bags so figured I'd try something different and glad I chose this bag. However I ordered the crimson and it wasn't what I expected. The color is very nice but I expected more of a dark reddish hue to it instead of plain tan or brown. I ended up exchanging for the ivy color and I'm very happy.
This is a very attractive handbag, I receive compliments on it all the time. It is very sturdy and well made, the leather is very smooth and attractive, but not so soft that I am constantly afraid I will damage it, I would expect it will last me a lifetime. It is a bit heavy, but I imagine that is to be expected with a bag of this size and construction. I am very pleased.
Oooh La La
I've never owned a Dooney Bourke before spending the money for this beauty. It's the most gorgeous handbag I've ever seen. The size is perfect for my tastes, large and roomy, and I love the Florentine leather and sturdy cotton lining on the inside. The orange goes with almost everything in my wardrobe, complimenting or adding a pop of color. If you love leather, you will love the feel and smell of Florentine. I'm grateful to QVC for offering Easypay, otherwise I couldn't have afforded to carry this sweet beauty!
I'm In Love With This Bag!
I absolutely love this bag! So much so, I have it in five colors! Just the right size, great organization, fits over the shoulder and close to the body. You have to be a connoisseur of Florentine to truly appreciate what a special handbag this is. I get so many compliments, especially on the moss color. LOVE it!
I had to send this back...the leather on one-third of the back of the purse was a completely different texture from the smooth leather on the remainder of the bag. There were very large bumps in the leather ... much larger than Dooney's pebble leather which I own. Since the contrast was so distinct, I had to return... it did not look like a quality bag.
a class of it's own!
I watched this bag for a month and decided to just quit waiting and get it! It's my 7th Dooney and first Florentine. I must say this is by far the most high end bag I have ever owned and I absolutely love it! Every new Dooney I get is my new favorite but this is in a class of it's own and I am thrilled with it! Got the orange and it's so gorgeous I find myself coming up with reasons to leave the house just so I can carry it!
