Dooney & Bourke Florentine Leather Clayton Satchel
Beautiful handbag. Love it. I have this Florentine handbag in orange. It's not a loud color orange it's a nice fall color orange. Yes, it's heavy and roomy. Very nice huge handbag plenty of room.
I purchased my beautiful Clayton bag in chestnut "as is" , so I saved lots of money. The bag arrived in perfect condition with everything including the strap and storage bag and I love it! Easy pay makes it painless. Thanks again QVC!
Love This Style
I love the styling of this bag. It immediately caught my attention. I purchased the chestnut and I am happy with the color. I agree with everyone that the bag is a little heavier than expected but I think that comes from the quality of the leather--so I don't mind. I change my bags often with my wardrobe so weight is not an issue for me. I believe it was well worth the purchase price and, as a result of the quality, it is the type of bag that you expect to get years of wear out of it. I normally carry this bag with the handles and use the strap when I need my hands free.
Not Florentine leather
Received bag in orange and love the design of bag but the leather looks like pebble leather. There is not one spot of smooth leather anywhere. Very disappointed. For the price of the bag, I want top quality and this is not it.
Love this Bag
I love this bag! Everyone says what a big bag this is but it's not that big to me. I'm a big bag gal but this isn't as big as I expected it to be. It's a heavy bag especially when empty! It's even heavier when loaded with my stuff. And because of that I have been forced to cut back on non-essential items! With all that said, I STILL love this bag!
Not as expected
I really wanted this in the moss color and waited on back order for quite a while,after it arrived what a let down! My bag was NOT quality florentine leather by any means, the zipper opening was sewn poorly and had an odd bump in the center, the strap pathetic for this price point. Dooney is a wonderful brand and I will continue to enjoy my many Dooney purchases, but this one is a miss and certainly NOT as advertised-return.
I am in love
I felt guilty spending so much money on one purse. When I received it, I was hoping I would hate it and send it back. Well, I love, love, love it. Yes, it is big and a bit heavier, but the luxury and craftsmanship is beyond words. I want one in every color. Now I must go to work so I can afford to buy more!
The bag does not open widely enough - returning
For a bag of this cost, the opening is restricted and does not provide as easy an access as it should be. Plus, the leather on the bag is not of the usual Dooney quality. Returning.
I am of two minds with this bag. First of all, I LOVE it!! All that space on the outside of the bag is amazing. AND, it's very heavy, but I could deal with that. What I don't like is the dumb strap, here again, too long for a shoulder strap and I don't like the crossbody feel of the bag when I'm carrying it. So, I improvised like I have with several other Dooney bags, I doubled the strap - which, of course, you aren't supposed to do. But with the long strap doubled, it carries much more comfortably as a shoulder bag. So far as looks are concerned, this is one of my most favorite handbags of all time. Now, if they'd just fix that long strap issue, I'd get it in every color. Oh, and by the way, the black color in this handbag is beautiful.
I love it ! cant say anything more .....strong well made beautiful beautiful!
Very close to the perfect bag!
I LOVE this bag. I am such a particular handbag user to say this is close to the perfect bag is amazing. I demand organization outside the bag. I just do NOT want to have to get into my bag for keys, cell, sunglasses, etc. This provides all of that. In addition the long strap provides an optional way to wear it and is the perfect length for me (I'm 5'10") to be able to reach into when I'm checking out. I don't think it's too heavy but it's heavier than a lot of bags. I purchased the crimson color and it's beautiful. Thanks D&B!
To Heavy Empty
I love this bag and it breaks my heart .... but I am returning this bag ONLY because of the weight it is quiet heavy empty. Love love love the purse just to heavy once I would put the things I carry in my purse. It is a beautiful purse ..... who knows I may break down and reorder it in the future and learn to live with the weight. Tough question would I would recommend this bag yes but would tell you it is a heavier bag even empty so if you do not mind a heavy bag ..... please order it you will love it
