Dooney & Bourke Floral Coated Fabric East/West Shopper
I purchased this bag because of wonderful reviews. It is absolutely beautiful, typical of Dooney & Bourke. The flowers just pop on the black background. Sadly though I had to return this beauty because it was just too big, it overwhelmed me. I would highly recommend to someone who loves large bags. Very well made!
I love the East/West Shopper silhouette that Dooney has designed. This bag can be used for everyday as a handbag or as a tote if you so desire. I travel overseas for business a few times a year and I love using it as my travel handbag. It is roomy so I can fit everything I need and then I eliminate the need to carry yet another bag. When you are running around the airport the last thing you want is to be burdened down with bags.
The colorful floral design just makes the bag fun and the shape makes it functional. What a great combo!! Simply put -- the bag puts a smile on my face.
I LOVEEEEEEE my first Dooney and Bourke!!!!!
I got my Black Floral Coated Fabric Shopper yesterday!!! I was soo excited to get the box open! I couldn't have been more pleased!! The colors are soo bold and beautiful.. I was torn on which one to order, I loved both colors! But I am soo happy that I chose the Black.. its just beautiful! I love the size, and love that I can adjust the straps. I look forward to carrying this bag for a long long time!! I hope that my Florentine leather med. zip hobo bag (natural) is just as beautiful!!! I can't wait till next week for it to come!! I am a new fan of Dooney and Bourke! Thanks QVC!!!
Love the size and shape of this summery bag. Its magnetic closure works so nicely to close it! The fabric design is great but, to my dismay, the colors of the fabric design ran so the background on part of the bag is no longer white but a faded pink. This is only on one side so I continue to use the bag with the pretty side showing but I expected better quality from Dooney and Bourke.
A floral beauty but not for me..
This was my first Dooney and Bourke purchase so I really looked forward to receiving it, since my husband and I grow epiphyllum plants that produce lovely blooms that are somewhat similar to the larger blooms on this bag. The contrast of colors against the black background was lovely and I liked the idea that since it was coated, it could withstand the rigors of daiily use. However, like another reviewer, when I used it, it was very heavy to carry on my shoulders even with filling it partially. When loaded with my daily items, I also feared the strain on the straps would eventually wear them and the thread down. I returned the bag since, for the money invested, I could not use it regularly. The construction, other than my issues above, did seem well done. A beautiful and unique bag, but not for me...
LOVE this bag!
I watched this for months and finally went ahead and bought it and I am glad that I did. I have this tote in another coated cotton (Petunia) with the white background so I bought the black. I really love the coated cotton and this style of bag. Also - I bought the Collins Hobo in this floral coated cotton in WHITE. The black and white bags looks totally different because different colors stand out if that makes any sense. Good strap length, and you can change the length of the straps - they adjust like a belt. Highly recommend you give this a try if you are considering it, the bag won't disappoint. Oh yes - good interior organization including one zip pocket and a larger slip pocket plus leash for keys.
I contemplated ordering this for a few months. The colors on the black bag seemed to pop so I finally ordered it. It is a BEAUTIFUL bag....the colors are extraordinary on the black background. I sent it back though. I put all of my things in it (and I don't carry a ton of stuff) and carried it for two full days. After going to the grocery store with this bag, I knew I couldn't use it every day. It was so big and cumbersome and much too heavy on my shoulder. The straps are too thin in my opinion. It is very durable just way too big for my liking.
A "WOW" bag
I was like so many other reviewers and couldn't decide if I really needed another purse, but I just kept on coming back to qvc.com and looking at it over and over. I finally decided that I really needed it. My kids had given me money for Mother's Day to redecorate/update my bathroom but asked them if I could use the money instead for this bag which they readily agreed to! I am so glad that I did. It is great, very well made with plenty of room for everything I need. My bathroom is a little outdated, but I look great carrying my new bag. Everyone really likes it.
A Fabulous Bag!
I love this bag. I use it as a work tote during the week and a purse on evenings and weekends. It is the perfect size and the pattern is gorgeous. I purchased the bag in black and it is going to be my go to bag for the summer and beyond. The coated fabric is wonderful; I was worried it would look "plasticy" but it definitely doesn't.
Best Mother's Day Present Ever!
I picked this bag out for myself as a Mother's Day present from my one year old daughter and husband. I absolutely love it. It is big and roomy (enough for my wallet, makeup, a few diapers, toys, sippy cup, etc) but has enough organization that I'm not fumbling around to find my cell phone when it rings. I was disappointed that the white was sold out but ordered it in the black anyway. It still is so perfect for spring and summer, even in the black. Thanks for the easy pay too! :)
HEAVY AND CLUNKY
Sorry if this bag were smaller it might have been a keeper for me.
But many women are not able to carry such a large bag. It does not look good on them
even if the bag is durable and pretty, which this is.
If you're petite forget this one.
Mine is going back ASAP.
Dooney please make this design into a wallet.
Fabulous Tote Bag !
I originally wanted this bag in white for the summer and a little disappointed when I saw it was sold out. Based on all the great reviews I decided to order the black. Its AMAZING ! I have several Dooney bags but this one just pops. The colors are awesome and such a high quality bag for the price and on easy pay. Great deal !
