A220185 - Dooney & Bourke Florentine Large Leather Toggle
LOVE AT FIRST SIGHT!
I am somewhat judgmental about the handbags I use on a daily basis. The reviews on this one were mixed. But I like a large handbag since I am known to store the child's current whatever in it I chose this one. When it arrived, I began to put my items in it and still have room for something else if I desire. Dooney & Bourke, thank you for making the handbag of my dreams......until I think of another one! Lol
SAVE YOUR MONEY
Leather feels like cheap plastic. I expected the bag to be heavy and it really is. I got the T-morro brown. All I can say is I wish I would have sent it back in time. The bag is drab looking, and cheap looking. I was very disappointed.
If you are the kind of woman who "travels light" this tote is NOT for you. This MAGNIFICENT tote is for the woman who MUST lug stuff around all the time. Ladies, please dont buy this and just leave it in the closet, this one deserves the daily spotlight. It is quite spacious, has enough pockets, isnt as heavy as you may think, and I WILL own this in EVERY color they make it in. Heavenly.
My Perfect Bag at Last!
Oh my, this bag is pure luxury. I am delighted! Huge, yes, but exactly the size and the look I was going for. It is not as heavy as I thought it would be; I have carried it easily every day since receiving it. Now, if I could just stop touching it and smelling that exquisite leather....:-) This bag is bliss.
A Lifetime Classic
I never need to carry a bag of this size or a tote style on a daily basis but my extensive handbag collection was missing this exact bag! My purpose in purchasing was to have that one gorgeous tote in fabulous leather and detail when the need arises for a carry-on or a luxurious day trip. Bought the brown and then went back for the natural. I own the mini versions of this tote in both black and natural also and they are all just perfect for me. I'm not a Dooney girl but I know a good thing when it comes along and the all florentine or florentine/nubuck line of handbags is a big Dooney leap as far as my personal style is concerned and I am satisfied and thankful that I was able to make 5 beautiful purchases from the florentine leather collection (the chamois nubuck/natural florentine satchel made 5)....I'm done now!
Missed on the details
The bag is nice and big, which is what I expected. The straps are nice and long so it can easily be worn on your shoullder even with a coat on. It is a much classier version of the Dooney but they did not follow through with the details. The lining is an ugly dark green and red and I have received nicer sleeper bags for purses half the price. A brown paper bag would be softer. Sorry but for this price I would expect better.
Could have been a great purse BUT.....way too heavy, stiff and just too big! Returned!
Once again a beautiful Dooney & Bourke handbag
I truly adore this bag...how could you not appreciate the quality and style? I love it!!!!!
I don't know what has happened to Dooney in recent years - but to describe this bag as a "soft, buttery leather" as they do on TV, is not accurate at all....I have found that the two most recent Dooney bags that I've purchased from QVC have been stiff and cheap-feeling. Actually, for the money, Tignanello's leather and B.Mak's leather are of better quality than Dooney. I remember the days when Dooney was, in fact, the softest, highest quality, but I've been disappointed with the last few purchases. Maybe their QVC leather is different than what they use in department stores.
LOVE! LOVE! LOVE!
Oh my goodness...I have a couple of Dooney bags and a few Coach bags as well but this is the "bag of all bags!" It is stunning and so rich looking--- I have had so many compliments on it and I've only been carrying it for a few days. It is roomy and I can see everything in it. I especially like the inside because it is not separated as some bags are...it's one big open area and makes it easy for me to find my "stuff." I can also carry my calendar and a few work files with me as well. Thank you, Dooney & Bourke and QVC!
My Favorite Dooney
Beautiful bag that will last a life time and then some. Natural is a beautiful color and the leather has a nice touch.
As much as I really love the style of this bad it's just so heavy before anything goes in it. Love the size maybe DB will come out with this bag in something other then leather so it's not so heavy. As much as I like it it's going back.
