Dooney & Bourke Leather Hobo with Logo Lock and Accessories
Loving it so much I bought a 2nd!
I normally don't care for D&B bags (sorry!#, as the stiff leather isn't my style. But when I saw they made a soft pebbled leather, I had to give it a try. This was my first D&B.
PROS: I ordered this bag in Lavender a month ago, today. When I opened it I thought I was going to have to send it back. It looked HUGE, the leather was pretty stiff, and it kept sliding off my shoulder. However, once I filled it with my belongings, it stayed on my shoulder and started taking the shape shown in the picture. I have grown to love this bag. It's so easy to toss on my shoulder and go. When it's closed it takes the lovely slouchy hobo shape, and when you pull the sides up to open it the bag takes on a bucket shape with a huge opening that makes it so easy to access whatever is deep inside. When you set it down, it keeps it's perfect shape and won't puddle. The feet really do make a difference, and help keep the bag clean. I like that it's lightweight enough that it doesn't hurt my bad back, yet big enough to fit whatever I need and then some! I get compliments on it DAILY! The lavender is not near as dark as it appears online, it really is more of a periwinkle color.
CONS: Sometimes I don't want to have to unlock my purse just to get inside, nor do I want to leave the lock unlatched to just flop around and make clinking sounds. Trying to access the pockets inside can be challenging if you don't fully open the purse. You can slip your hand down in the sides of the bag, but can't easily access what's in the pockets. The key leash is designed for those who wear their bags on their left shoulders. For those of us that wear it on our right shoulder, you have to keep your keys somewhere else, take the bag off your shoulder to access the leash, or bend your arm behind your back in a way only double-jointed people can. The liner isn't exactly pretty, but it does seem to have a purpose #helps the bag keep it's shape when standing up#.
In the end... I'm REALLY enjoying this bag! I'm really happy with it's shape, weight, and durability. I like it so much I just ordered my second, this time in Optic White #what a perfect summer bag)! I bought a red Coach bag back in December and wish I would have gotten this in red instead.
If you're debating on it... DO IT! Order the Logo Lock! Worse case scenario, you don't like it and can return it thanks to QVC's awesome return policy. But I doubt you'll end up doing that.
Beautiful Bag but VERY Heavy
I ordered the mint - beautiful aqua color, but was very disappointed in how heavy it was. Even before I put anything in it, it weighed more than my current purse fully loaded. It also was a lot bigger than expected, even though I like big purses to carry all my stuff. I returned it, and I'll resume my search for something lighter.
I too waited a long time before making this purchase, I checked it everyday and looked at each color, loving them all! I finally decided on the taupe so that I could use it any season.
The purse is truly beautiful, the leather quality is substantial, thick and soft. It is not too large or heavy, I am 5'5", size medium, it will also hold a lot of contents. It will stand alone and not puddle or fall over, color is beautiful also, not too tan or muddy, just perfect. I am very happy with my purchase and easy pay makes it possible!
Easy to Get in and Out Of
I ordered this in the teal, and it is a beautiful color! I can very easily slide my wallet in and out of it with one hand, which for me is a necessity! The front lock is very easily navigated and keeps the purse "closed" without a lot of hassle. The only thing I dislike about this purse is that, because the shoulder strap is so wide, I have a hard time keeping it up on my shoulder.
My new love
This Dooney & Bourke is awesome! The clasp is gorgeous!
I love the size, organization, and quality. Most of
All I love the strap, it's comfortable and doesn't
Cut into or slide off of my shoulder. The bonus little
Clutch puts this purchase at the top of my list of
Best buy ever!!!
Happy I Finally Bought It!
I have viewed many a Dooney & Burke Show on QVC, and this bag has been featured on all of them. As time went on, I heard the reviews, and saw all the pretty new colors they kept coming up with. The little kisslock purse, however, was a deal-maker, along with the Light Pink color that's so rare to find in Dooney's. I Love This Bag!. The leather is soft and supple, there's plenty of room, and the color is not going to rub off on your clothes, like some other big name handbag company. I can't wait until it's warmer so I can show it off! Perfect springtime bag, with a nice wide comfy strap. Definitely recommend!
I just received my Beautiful Bag in Bordeaux and I Love it!!! Just as I imagined. It's the perfect wine color. if you're looking for a small bag this is not for you.... This bag has plenty room for what ever you need to carry and the coin purse is the cherry on the cake!!!
Beautiful but Not For Me.
I bought the navy. I've never had a navy bag because I thought they were for a more mature woman but times have changed and and the old rules of fashion are out. If you like it wear it. Beautiful quality leather and will probably last a life time. A little stiff but they say it will soften over time. The issue is I am really prefer more of a slouchy style. I bought this hobo because I figured I would get the best of both worlds but it is a tad too structured to me and I was also a little concerned the clasp may break before it's too late to return. I tried to package it like I opened it and included the accessories. I have to admit that little kiss lock wallet is adorable. Hope someone will enjoy this beauty!
Navy Blue Too Dark
I was excited when I ordered this bag in Navy. When I received it, first I was surprised at how Large it was and thought that the leather was very stiff for the price. Second, be careful if you are considering ordering this in Navy because it almost looks black. I guess its a good bag for X-Large bags. Will look to find something else.
I was the kind of girl who never carried a purse. I hated them. But the minute this bag showed up I was a changed woman!! I LOVE IT!! It is roomy and built sturdy. I am so impressed with it and all the accessories. It is comfortable to carry. I've gone from tomboy to girly, just like that!
got this beautiful bag as a surprise from my husband for my birthday! love this bag so much-the leather is gorgeous! this is my 5th Dooney and QVC is the best place to buy them. I have about 6 more bags in my wish list, will hopefully get them throughout the year! Anyone in doubt about this bag, go for it! It's worth every penny and more! Very happy!
I bought this bag about 3 yrs ago after falling in love with it during the on air presentation. At the time, I bought it in the mustard color because of the color tone on air, but once it arrived i hated the color and I quickly returned it.. But, this bag has been in my head ever since. Finally, a color I didnt have in my purse arsenal.... dark green. I realy like this bag: the color, the leather, the price. Amazing Bag! Glad I gave it a second chance.
