Dooney & Bourke Florentine Leather Domed Buckle Satchel
Big but not Heavy
It's absolutely beautiful! It's roomy, holds a lot, but doesn't get too heavy. There is just enough length in the handles to wear on the shoulder. I love the outside pocket for my cell phone. I wish D & B would have the pocket on all of their bags (I own a lot). The leather smells so good!

Got this for my birthday, love it. The straps are long enough to go over the shoulder, and this is the first Dooney I have that really opens up. I hope to see more with the zipper opening big like this one.

This is my fourth Florentine Leather bag from Dooney and Bourke. I am an equestrian rider and I know saddles. This leather is just as good if not BETTER than the leather on my saddles for which I paid in upwards of 3,000.00 dollars for. This handbag will be passed down to my grand daughters, grand daughter. The quality and detail that Dooney and Bourke have put into their Florentine Leather bags warrant paying at least a thousand dollars for. I have handbags I've paid close to a thousand for and they have no where near the quality of leather. I hear some people complaining about scratches. Look all you have to do is oil the bag. Plus it gives the bag character. I cannot tell you how blessed I feel in owning all four of my Florentine's. Way to go Dooney. I'm a life long fan of your new Florentine Leather. You keep making them...I'll keep buying them.
One of the Most Beautiful Handbags I've Ever Owned
I hope Dooney never discontinues this handbag. Got it in the natural and it is stunning. Even the post office clerk commented on it when I was buying stamps. The contrasting stitching on the handles is beautifully done and the colour of the bag is a rich honey brown that improves with age. It's a good sized bag but doesn't look too big and hangs comfortably on the shoulder. I would love to get this in the bone colour too if it comes back in stock. It's such an elegant bag that I think any colour would look great.

Another winner; my second Florentine; now I want the Florentine crossbodies; all of them.. I got the natural; and its so wonderful; crazy loving handbags the way we / I do. But its better than buying new cars every month.

This bag is GORGEOUS! The leather seems much softer than the same leather on all of my five Clayton bags (I am obsessed with the Clayton) and it also seems much lighter than the Clayton. The space inside is wonderful. The bag is large but because of the way it is styled it is not overpowering on my 5' 1" frame. I can carry it on my shoulder. I really expected the slip pocket on the outside to be too small for my very large smartphone but I was pleasantly surprised... My Samsung Galaxy Note II in an Otterbox Commuter case fit just fine. I am thrilled!!!
I received this bag last week in Navy, and it's gorgeous! The leather is not stiff at all, I love the details, and it fits well over my shoulder. Much bigger than bags I normally carry, but I'm quickly getting used to that. I love the outside phone pocket too. Very happy with this purchase!
Of course the leather is gorgeous! I ordered the violet. Beautiful color, but a bit bright for winter! Unfortunately, the straps were too short to go over my shoulder, which leaves only one way to wear it. This was not acceptable for me.
Lots of compliments on this bag even after a year. I got the natural color and after being used over a year later it still looks amazing. Has lots of room, the pocket on the bag makes it very easy to place and get your phone. I travel a lot and use this bag as part of my outings. I'm able to fit my surface tablet, makeup bag, wallet and still have room for my boys it's. However, because of the type of leather and size of the bag, it is a bit heavy. You won't go wrong with this bag.
THE BEST BAG!
I own this bag in the natural and the black. They are so gorgeous! Every detail is perfect. The outside cellphone pocket, the multiple interior pockets, the solid structure so it never falls over..... I can fit my wallet, cosmetic bag, iPad mini and anything else my children toss at me to hold onto for them in this bag. It fits comfortably over the shoulder and securely. It never falls off and I don't have to worry about anyone grabbing it. Love! Love! Love!
This was my first Dooney & Bourke, I have it in red and its so pretty. Every time I carry this bag even months and months later I continue to get compliments. Strangers walk up and say what a nice bag it is and can tell right away that its a quality handbag. Actually, most people know that it's a Dooney........
My first Dooney love :)
This bag in blue was the first Dooney bag I saw that stole my heart and sadly, I missed out that time due to finances. Fast forward to a year or two later and seeing the gorgeous Ocean blue in stock on QVC with easy pay and I was sold. This bag is a stunning in Ocean Blue. Rich, deep color that brightens under certain lighting and sunlight yet looks deep in average to low lighting. Not too bold, but still a statement color. Always stunning whether dressed up or wearing jeans casually for a day of shopping. This bag has the perfect amount of stiffness while also being soft with the drape you expect from Florentine leather. My bag is smooth leather which begs to be touched with that yummy leather smell I adore! The drop is perfect for me to fit on my shoulder or crock of arm. The handles are pliable enough that both modes of carry is quite comfortable as is carrying in hand. I am amazed at how much this bag holds yet it remains pretty lightweight and not too big for my 5' 3 inch self. I can easily carry all my normal purse contents from wallet to makeup bag, etc. and also my iPad and much much more. Outside slip pocket fits my iPhone with the top of the iPhone showing which makes it easy to remove. Normal interior pockets most of the bags have, zipper compartment and key leash. I highly recommend this bag and am so happy I decided to buy it. Expect the compliments to come pouring in as this bag is truly a stunner.
