Dooney & Bourke Patent Leather Satchel with Detachable Strap
On the fence!
I am basing my review on looks alone because I have not carried the bag yet - and I have read all of the recent comments about problems with peeling and quality issues. I hope this turns out to be a great purchase!!
beautiful but now peeling
I purchased the navy and it was simply gorgeous until it started to peel away. Don't buy this one!
I fell in lev with this bag at first sight. I carried it for less than 2 weeks and the corners on the bottom of the bag began to peel. The color just wore off. I was so disappointed. I have many Dooney bags and have carried them for years. Unfortunately I had to return this one.
My mother purchased this bag for me in a beautiful purple patent. It was LOVELY and I was so pleased. Unfortunately, like several of the other reviews below, the bag began to peel within a week. I have more bags than I should and several of them are Dooney & Bourke -and, I have never seen anything like this before. Rather than send it back to QVC, I sent it to Dooney & Bourke directly to see if it could be repaired. Unfortunately, the answer was no. I was told the bag was "defective" and provided a merchandise credit. Supper disappointing because it was so pretty.
Pretty at First
When I received this bag I was absolutely stunned at the beauty. I ordered the cherry red and it was beautiful. I loved pairing it with my outfits for that pop of color. I'm totally obsessed with red. I loved the way the long shoulder strap draped over my shoulder, and I loved the size of the bag. I read the other reviews about the peeling of the leather, but I decided to take chance anyway on this gorgeous bag. Unfortunately, just as the other reviews said within a WEEK the patent leather on the corners of the bag started to peel. I did not mis handle the bag. I was VERY gentle with it. I was very disappointed with my purchase. I couldn't belie that a bag that is selling for over 200 dollars was made so poorly. I loved the design, so i was extremely disappointed. I immediately packed it back up and put it back in the mail. Sorry ladies, don't waste your money on this one, you'll only end up sending it right back to QVC.
Nice bag ,rich color, got this in midnight,very subtle. It is for the gal that is secure with her designer bag without the designer name all over it . Truly an understated glamour. I hope it does not start to peel like the other buyers said!!!!!!
beautiful bag, but....
I purchased this bag for as a birthday present to myself. I wish I read the reviews. I agree with other reviewers. I have had this bag for a little less than 6 months and only recently paid the easy pay on it. To my surprise, the corners on the bag did indeed start to look worn. I have taken very good care of the bag and I think for the price of the bag it should not have worn this way. When I spoke with someone in customer service she was quite helpful and acknowledged that is how patent leather wears. Again, beautiful bag, but for the price, it's not worth keeping as it will only continue to crack. Not worth it!!! I'm surprised at Dooney and Bourke.
Loved it at first
Loved this bag when I first received it. Great size and color-tan. But....after using it for a short period of time, like other reviewers, the patent leather in each corner wore away. This is NOT what I expect from a Dooney & Bourke bag. I have many others and have been pleased with them.
dooney & bourke
I didn't like this bag because the strap isn't long enough. Since I have problems with my hands, I prefer a bag with a long enough crossbody adjustable strap. This bag is nice and very expensive, but not for me.
JUST DO IT
Just received my black Dooney today. I fell in love, it's now my new favorite bag. I was thrilled with the patent leather, really feels rich and the perfect size for everyday but could definitely work in the evening too. Thanks for a beautiful handbag!!!!!!!
beautiful bag but......
I ordered the navy blue in this bag. It is a beautiful bag and I get a lot of compliements on it but......I just looked at
it closely today and the bottom corners of the bag no longer patent. the patent leather has worn off on the bottom
corners. When I bought this bag,
the host said "This is patent leather....this is the good stuff". I think
Dooney should plan ahead for future bags and put corners on the bags and feet to protect the bag.
could do without this one
When I ordered this bag I was so excited to finally find a red bag. I found that the bag wouldn't stand up by itself. So I fixed that by adding a large purse organizer into it. This bag has no feet on the bottom. Now I see that Dooney is now offering another purse which I think is made better, has the feet and leather on the bottom of the bag. I paid more for this bag than what u r offering today. I'll never purchase another Dooney bag. I feel as though they made a very big mistake. But I also feel as though they don't care anyway.
