Dooney & Bourke Florentine Leather Domed Buckle Satchel
Doone & Bourke never disappoints!
I'm a handbag kinda girl for sure.
This is truly a well worth it investment.
Updated satchel style of rich quality.
When I left home with bag on my arm for the first time, I received several compliments
before I even got to my car.
This bag is nothing short of "Yes I gotta have it"
KILLER SATCHEL PURSE
I COULD NOT BLEIEVE HOW GORGEOUS THIS BAG IS. THE COLOR AND LEATHER TEXTURE IS OUTSTANDING AND REMINDS ONE OF HOW MUCH IT COST. THE TYLE IS PERFECT, SO WELL MADE, IS VERY IMPRESSIVE LOOKING,
STUNNING TO LOOK AT AND ALTOGETHER BRILLIANT. I HAVE ORDERED MANY TOTES, BAGS, SATCHELS, FROM MANY OF YOUR VENDORS AND THIS IS THE MOST OUTSTANDING. I AM MESMERIZED AT THE CREATIVITY OF THE SATCHEL'S HANDLES AND THE STITCHING IS OUTOF THIS WORLD! WHEN SEEING THIS I HAVE DISCOVERED NO NEED FOR ALL THOSE COLORS THAT THE VENDORS ARE COMING OUT WITH. THIS BEATS THEM ALL! CHESTNUT IS THE WORD!
I love this bag!!
I don't usually carry brown handbags but the chestnut color was the only option left and I liked the look of this bag so much that I took a chance...so happy that I did! It's beautiful and classic and really goes with everything. I have gotten so many compliments and envious looks from women of all ages. This is my daily bag but I just went on a week long trip with my four-year-old and it held my normal daily stuff (phone, wallet, makeup, reusable shopping bags, etc.) as well as our travel stuff (snacks, two 7" Kindle Fires, phone/Kindle chargers, headphones, tissues, cold medicine, a hair brush, and a few toys) with no problem. I think everything about this bag is just right. The weight is heavier than some other high end brands but pretty typical for a D&B and maybe even a little lighter than you might expect for such a substantial bag. I am able to carry this bag on my shoulder, in the crook of my arm, and held by the straps without discomfort or worry about damage to the integrity of the bag. The size is considerable--definitely not a petite bag but not as big as a tote either--it held all my travel stuff without ever looking bloated or unattractive. The generous size is why I chose "moms" as who this would be a perfect gift for, though I think it would appeal to non-moms as well. And, for organization, it's open inside with one zip pocket and three slip pockets on the inside and one slip pocket on the outside, where I keep my cell phone, all of which are fabulous and more usable IMO than other bags at similar price points that I've owned because they seem to be placed right for easy access but don't bulge or gape open when you put stuff in them.
When I received this Florentine Leather Dooney bag, I was really pleased with the quality and the feel of the bag. This makes my 6th Dooney and I will continue to invest in the brand. They're worth EVERY SINGLE red cent!!! :-)
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.
