Dooney & Bourke Florentine Leather Large Pocket Shopper
Gorgeous bag - please bring back in more colors!
Just purchased this as - is in chestnut color and it is beautiful! Please bring this back in more colors. It's a big bag but holds everything and can be converted to a satchel very easily. No it doesn't have a zipper but the snaps at the side can be used to close the bag up a bit when you're concerned about needing to close the bag. Just love this bag and would love to buy it in more colors.
Strap Broken After Owning For 3 Months.
I am beginning to wonder if the Q is getting a lesser quality version of the bags from Dooney. This is my fifth Dooney from the Q, and the second I have purchased only to have the straps break or unravel. After the price paid for this bag, I WILL be calling QVC about it. Be warned. The straps on this bag are not stitched on, but flimsily glued. I bet the retail version of this bag does not experience these problems. I'm going to check just for the heck of it.
I donot understand why these top named makers of expensive bags will not put zippers on their bags. They are not saving money by putting these flimsy snaps on the bags when customers send them back!
I am a handbag snob and have "MANY" handbags. I have never had the privilege of owning a handbag of this caliber! The leather is beyond anything I have ever imagined. The size of the bag, the spaciousness are great. Love the top stitching. The first day I used it I received many compliments. Hands down this is my all-time favorite handbag. I will probably carry it more than any of my other handbags. I purchased the natural color and it is truly beautiful. Goes with anything!!
LOVE, LOVE, LOVE IT!!!
I absolutely love this bag. It's big, boxy and holds all my "stuff" - to include my day planner and an iPad. I got it in black and the detailing is amazing - the stitching on the straps is beautiful. The outside pockets are great and my cell phone fits perfectly into the pocket on the backside. I love the softer leather and the bag still holds it's shape when it's sitting on my chair. This is my 4th Dooney and as long as QVC keeps them available on the easy pay option, I'll be back for more! The bag can be a little heavy, but I'm used to that because I love big bags.
My Purse Handle Is Breaking
I am calling qvc today. I bought the purse in January and the strap that is connected to the gold circle is breaking off? This is an expensive purse and it should not be falling off.
NICE BAG..BEAUTIFUL LEATHER
I was lucky and got this bag in natural at an "AS IS" price & that's the only reason why I am keeping it. This bag is truly beautiful but SECURE it is NOT. The bag never really stays closed, even when you snap the tabs together in the middle. You have to be aware of where you are & who is around YOUR BAG at all times & that make it a PAIN. It is really easy for ANYONE just walking by to reach into this bag..Dooney needs to add a B. Mak magnet to the opening so it will stay closed and be more secure, LESS inviting to to anyone who is less then honest.
Love My Shopper!
This was my choice for a shopper. I chose the natural and absolutely love the florentine leather. I am going on a trip soon and am definitely taking it! I have gotten lots of compliments and everyone loves the red lining. They also like how you can change the shape of the bag with the side snaps, it's like having two bags in one! I guess the only thing that surprised me ...other reviewers had stated this... was the scent of the leather was strong but as the others said it dissipated after about a week. Also I knew that the shopper didn't come with a zipper but I think a magnet or two under the green suede would help keep items inside the shopper more secure when it is off your shoulder. That being said I really like this bag!
Nice looking bag
This handbag is very beautiful with a rich, substantial leather. I have two complaints though: there is no zipper as advertised so stuff kind of tumbles out as I found out when traveling and putting it under the seat on the plane. Also, when I snap the bag to convert it, for some reason it is uneven or not symmetrical. The bag is beautiful but too pricey for these rather major flaws.
Best bag ever
I absolutely LOVE this bag. I have 10 Dooneys, and 15 to 20 B Makowskey bags, this Dooney bag is by far the best bag I've ever had. I was disappointed when I got it because it was not a zipper closure as QVC advertised , however, I thought I'd try it out, what I have found is, you can connect the top two side snaps and it becomes a nice bucket type bag , when I need something I love that I can unsnap it and immediately I can see everything in my bag which means I'm not digging around trying to find something . I love the rich natural tone and at a glance anyone can tell its a classy handbag. LOVE LOVE LOVE it .
I also have purchased Dooneys -The Smith Bag , I'm so in love with this shopper tote, I don't know when I'll use my Smith bag .
On the same weekend when this bag was being previewed, I bought this bag and the Wilson. I could only get both of these bags because QVC offered them on Easy Pay! I wanted them both as soon as they came out but knew I couldn't afford both of them, so was elated when they were BOTH on easy pay. I use the Wilson for everyday use and this BEAUTIFUL Pocket Shopper as a book bag. I am a Bible Student with a variety of books and this Shopper is perfect!!!! Thank you so much QVC for letting me have both of these wonderfully constructed bags!
For the price of the bag I expected a more substantial leather. This was not up to par with the other 20 D&B leather bags I own. The size is great, the white/off white color is nice and as another reviewer stated, this bag just did not "wow" me for the price paid.
