Dooney & Bourke Florentine Leather Large Toggle Sac
This is an awesome bag, the color weight overall quality awesome.
My one pet pive with Dooney is the drop isn't long enough, when I put on my parka it just doesn't go over my shoulder. :-(
But I still love it.
LOVE, LOVE, LOVE MY DOONEY & BURKE!!!!!!!!!
I purchased the Dooney & Bourke Florentine Leather Large Toggle Sac in the natural shade and I absolutely LOVE this purse!!!!! When I opened my QVC box, the aroma of the leather AND the beauty of this bag were amazing. WOW!!!! I have purchased other Dooney & Burke handbags from QVC and I have been completely happy each and every time. I reommend this handbag 100% to everyone, the quality of Dooney & Bourke and the excellent service from QVC.......makes this a winner all the way around. Thanks again QVC......you are THE best!!!!!
I never write negative reviews, but, I am compelled to write this one. I have had to make THREE returns on this bag. All the bags I received were defective. The coloring on the bags was very uneven, there were deep scars and markings on the bags , the texture of the leather was uneven, there were deep scratches, etc. on ALL three bags. Which means 3 trips to UPS to return the bags. I really wanted a new bag for my birthday Sunday, looks like that will not happen . Very poor quality control. This is an expensive bag,I expected much better.
Gorgeous Quality Bag....
I purchased the chestnut and could not be happier with the color and texture and quality of the leather used. I wish D&B would make this exact same style with pockets on the front of the back that were magnetic on each side so there was more room to store things outside. I would buy multiple colors if so. This bag is weightier so I dont weight it down with everything but the kitchen sink but you absolutely could. I feel as though with wearing it will soften and become more plyable and the weight will become less noticeable. Right now I am just enjoying the fact that it goes with everything I wear and is convenient.
I bought this bag for myself originally but once it arrived it was to large for my frame, but my daughter in law fell in love with it. I gave it to her and she loves it. She says there's room for everything. I was happy I didn't have to send it back.
This is the perfect navy bag! Navy is VERY difficult to find in handbags, especially a navy which will do with the wonderful Clarks navy in their sandals and clogs. This navy does VERY well! Perfect? No, but almost!!!!! It certainly looks very good with Clarks!
The size is also very nice. I like looking into a bag and spotting my wallet FAST not worry that it is lost or stolen! I see where others have said that it offers little organization inside. I say, "GOOD!" I have three VERY expensive (if I write STAGE COACH, you'll know to which brand I am referring) and there are three different main openings........OH, MY GOSH! WHERE IS MY WALLET? I try to put it back in the same place every time.......but I don't. With this bag, I can see it IMMEDIATELY!
I thought the lighter top stitching would be distractingly white. It is not. There is luscious brown top stitching on various parts of the bag (obviously beautifully hand sewn) and what I thought was white is actualy a very subtle dark beige.....the video was little misleading thanks to the studio lights..
This is NOT a heavy Florentine because there aren't a lot of extras attached to the bag such as tassles and so on. I have to have a bag which is somewhat lightweight because of severe back problems. This fits that bill.
It is a HANDSOME bag. Not frilly. Not masculine either. A GREAT day bag. The vegetable dye looks rich and deep...sScratches? Well, wet your finger a little and smear around the scratch, and voila! The scratch disappears.
Yes, there is plenty of room to carry this as a shoulder bag. I was concerned about the drop on the handle. Once the top of the bag is pushed in, there isa lot more room than is listed as the drop...not to worry!
I am a pocketbook snob. I have actually had several D&B bags but discarded them as they were not high-end enough for me. BUT THIS ONE, and possibly ALL the FLORENTINE LEATHER ones, qualifes for that EXPENSIVE bag look.
I use the, "cost per wearing" justification. This navy bag will be used a lot with either my navy pants or blue jeans.
It is easy to stuff things inside and easy to retrieve them. And I like that your things are protected by the toggle latch.....no one will be reaching in without your knowledge as you shop!
Really, if I didn't already have tooooooooooooo many bags, I would be buying this in every single color. It is that gorgeous and that impressive. And yes, I am just as proud of THIS bag as some which cost more from "stage coach or from that famous designer known for the brown PLASTIC bags!"
This is a purchase with which you get superior craftsmanship, superior design, and superior looks and a probably astounding number of times you will reach for it. THIS IS WHAT A BAG SHOULD BE! LOVE IT!
HAPPY! HAPPY! HAPPY!
Great Bag! ! !
I am glad I was given the opportunity to write a review about this product. It is the perfect bag for me. It is large, not too heavy, easy to secure, and holds everything I need and then some. I love the bag's simplicity, and yet, it is very sophisticated. I ordered it in the navy blue and just love that it is a true navy. There is no doubt that this is my favorite florentine bag I have ordered from you. I have several other styles, but because of it's shape and size, I know I will order it in another color maybe at the start of the new year. I feel very blessed that your company can offer me the opportunity to purchase such a luxery bag and pay on it for the next several months. Thanks QVC! ! !
Great addition to my collection
I ordered this bag in the Chestnut color. I was looking for an alternative to the hobo bag with the lock. I have that bag in three other colors, but needed a brown bag. This one is really gorgeous. I love the stitching detail. It's very roomy and I love the outside zipper pocket on the back. The leather is beautiful. This bag is comfortable to carry. My only comment, and the reason for four stars instead of five, is the nylon key leash should REALLY be made completely from leather. For this price point, D&B should not be scrimping on this feature. I've seen enough comments from others about this same topic to (hopefully) get the attention of QVC & D&B. PLEASE!!
I was so excited to get this bag. It would have been my 12th Dooney. I unfortunately had to return it. It was very heavy and I felt that the strap could have been just a bit longer. It was a bit awkward to carry. It was sad to say goodbye.
This is my 6th Dooney Florentine, and my favorite! Got in natural. Great classic bag I can carry forever! Now my only problem is what color next? Think I'm liking the olive!!
I have several Florentine bags and was interested in adding this one to my collection. Unfortunately it is huge and looks like a suitcase on my arm + the shape makes it difficult to find things on the bottom of the bag - Returned it.
I just love this bag. I purchased it in royal blue and it is beautiful. It has really soft, thick quality leather and is a nice easy larger style. I like the single braided shoulder strap. I recommend this one for anyone who likes a somewhat larger bag. I have looked and looked at ordering this one in the dark brown like it shows in a couple of the description pictures but it hasn't been available in that color. PLEASE BRING THIS BAG BACK IN THE DARK BROWN. I'm sure there are many others that would like to get this one in dark brown. One other thing,....it is surprisingly light weight for this size bag.
