Dooney & Bourke Croco Embossed Leather Tassel Bag with Accessories
I was very excited to recieve this bag from D & B because every other bag I have purchased from this Co. wore like iron. Until this one. I carried it maybe 2 months or so and the leather cracked in many places down both sides. I had used the bag so I didn't feel right about returning it---- but buyer beware on this one!!!!
This is a great purse. The finish gives it a dressy look. The only thing I would change is the length of the straps.
I love this purse , color is a little different than it looked on computer , but I enjoy it very much ,,I have three other donney & bourke bags that I have bought through qvc , but I think this is my choice of all ..
So, I debated over purchasing this bag for weeks due to the reviews regarding the bags weight & stiffness.... Well ladies this bag looks so much better in person the pic does not do this bag justice.. I selected the grey and its actually a hint of purple & not grey at all, which is fine with me since purple is my favorite color.... Nevertheless, this bag is built well & is not too stiff... Now, the bag has weight but not at all too heavy... If your debating stop... & buy it before its gone.... I love it & I'm sure I will get many compliments. oh and I'm 6 feet and the bag is fine for me to place on my shoulder to carry...Happy Shopping!!!!!!
great 50th birthday gift
I gave my daughter this bag for her 50th birthday. She is a doctor, wife, mother, girl scout leader and camping organizer to name a few hats she wears. She changes hand bags often and started buying bags that will last. She is thrilled with this bag because it holds its shape so she can open it up and everything is visible so she can grab whatever she is looking for. It holds everything she needs.
Not my favorite
As with all the Dooneys I own, this one seems to be high quality
and looks expensive. But where is the olive color? I thought the
host and guest were saying that the body of the bag had an olive
cast to it, but no - the handles and bottom of the bag are made from
a pebble leather that has a very dark olive color. It was hard to tell
if this one was the olive or the gray. Not good.
I just received my bag today. It's a beautiful dark olive color. Very nice structure, will use as a tote for work. Perfect size! I think I'll use the accessory for a small make up case for lip gloss, etc..
Too Heavy to carry
I bought this bag with accessories and at first I like it but as time went on and I used it every day my should started to hurt because it was so heavy and I did not stuff it. The leather is so stiff it did not give and soften.
I was super happy with this purse I had purchased about a year ago in the rust color. I received SOOOO many compliments, but I was sad that with in a few months it started to crack and split on the edges (creases) and had to put it away with fear of it getting worse....all I use now is the small coin purse that came with it :(
LOVE, LOVE, LOVE!
I bought the grey, which has beautiful tones of purple. This is my Spring/Summer bag. It has enough room for all of my things. Dooney & Bourke has a winner!
I love this croco pattern D&B. Just the right size. But the color is not what I expected. I ordered it in the Olive, but it looks like its black. Still, this is a beautiful bag, not too big/not too small. My daughter absolutely loved it. Will get her one also if it is offered again in different colors (She is a Coach person). She goes back to using the D&B purse, I gave her in Christmas of 2011.
I have stared at the olive color for such a long time! I bought it. It's very dark. This is a bag that seems dressier to me because of the finish they applied to the bag. I would open this up on the sides to carry as a tote on a daily use. In this manner it feels more casual and denim friendly. That being said, for me, this is dressier and I carry this with black, and dark brown. I had an extra hole punched in the strap ends so I would have more room in the strap drop.
The reason I gave this bag 4 instead of 5 is that the accessories are a definite enticement, but not very useful to me.
