A217320 - Dooney & Bourke Florentine Leather DoubleHandleSatchelw/Toggle
A LITTLE TOO RETRO!
Received this handbag today in the natural.....Debating whether or not to send it back....It looks a little too "retro" early '70s style to me, possibly because of the interlocking stitching in dark brown.....Usually, when I purchase a handbag from QVC, I like it immediately after opening the box.....This time I was not overly excited.....
Gonna keep it a few days before I make a final decision whether or not to send it back....
I know Dooney & Bourke has been around for many years now, but I do have one suggestion.....I wish they would make the "linings" and "dust bag" in a better quality fabric, like many other "better" handbag manufacturers do......
I ordered this bag in black because I wanted a simple, elegant black bag. This one fits the bill. I checked the dimensions and therefore, knew the strap drop would be closer to the hand. This bag is meant to be a "hand-bag". I love this bag's design and leather. It will make a statement with its sophisticated design. I also love that it has snaps on the sides so it can be taken in for a more tailored look, or you can unsnap it for a different look.
Suprised by this bag
Saw the other reviews about this bag and they helped me decide to take a chance on it... Pricey but worth it. It smelled awful when it arrived but that smell didn't last long.
I love that it has no hardware. I can get into the bag easily Nd love the snaps to help close it up. I was Vegas and surprised how much it held. My iPad, two cell phones two small bottles of water in addition to my cosmetic bag wallet . It's simple bag and suits me just fine.
SIMPLY THE BEST!
I purchased this bag after seeing it on QVC I believe back in January as a post Christmas gift to myself. It is simply the most beautiful bag that Dooney & Bourke has created! It's classy, appears hand-made, and the latch to open and close the bag is the clincher. I have actually been out shopping and complete strangers have complimented my bag. It carries more than what I thought it could including a wallet, cell phone, checkbook, and other miscellaneous items (small cosmetic purse, prescription bottles). I cringed at the price initially, but it is worth every penny!!! Do not hesitate, especially on easy pay. I purchased the natural color.
Where Do I Start?
The concept of the bag is nice! However, it is too small (yes I saw the dimensions) but u just don't know until you receive an item. Also, there were a couple of scratches on the bag I received, not good! There should not be a blemish on an "investment" bag. It is a satchel, but about a 6-8 inch drop would be perfect. To some it up-Larger, Longer Straps, Same Price-A Winner. I have to return this one.
just love that there is NO hardware on the bag!!! just beautiful leather and construction
the black goes with everything.... day to evening.
...to my surprise there is alot of room in the bag...
i always get a compliment while wearing this bag!
I have this bag in natural . I've been using it since 2/12. I've been a D
Classic and Classy
This handbag is so unique and has an understated elegance that's hard to find. I love that it is all leather, no hardware. Incredibly classy. It looks very feminine and refined, yet still manages to hold all my things. I have a big wallet, a big sunglasses case, a good-sized makeup bag, iPhone, keys, gum, etc. and there is still plenty of room! Love this bag and am so happy I purchased it. I have the black, and am sure this will be something I carry for years to come.
Natural and Classy..this is IT
I am a bag person ..I have several and when I saw this one I just loved it ! I didnt care what the drop size was on the handle or how big it was. I thought this a NATURAL looking classic Dooney ...which Im not for all the gliz and glamour in my bags more natrual looking and you get that when you purchase the natural color ....this is girly but holds its own when carrying lots of space for everything and the leather is of high quality no stains or scratches or anything ...this is THE bag I think for a long time it virtually all year round style ........:)
A Great girly-girl bag
All my handbags are shoulder bags, but I bought this when I saw all the 5 star reviews. I LOVE this handbag. I feel like a lady when I carry this bag.
It holds all I need- big wallet, sunglasses, make-up case, extra keys, and checkbook. There is still room for more.
I got the natural. It is stunning. I may go for another handbag, rather than a shoulder bag.
I purchased this bag just two weeks ago and simply love it. Every time I carry it, I get so many compliments and people are even trying to get me to sell it to them, for which I will not (smile). I have several Dooney bags and this is becoming one of my favorites. This bag is just awesome and I will purchase it in the natural color as well
WOULD BUY IT AGAIN!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Most awesome bag . I am addicted to purses but now I have found the one bag ever !!! Ladies you won't regret it. Holds everything I need.
