Dooney & Bourke Florentine Leather Clayton Satchel
this bag is beautiful on TV , and it is absolutely STUNNING in person what a wonderful purchase! Will be back for more Dooney, Thanks QVC!
A classic that fits my busy life beautifully
Best birthday gift ever! I have the orange and carry it everyday. It's simply amazing! I carry my iPad (sometimes two), my oversized wallet, cell phone (fits perfectly in one of the two front pockets) and anything else life, work or my kids throw at me.
There are a lot of complaints about the weight and the key leash not being leather...first the weight - this is a very structured leather bag. I've been carrying this daily for 4-months and when I set my bag down it sits up just as straight as the day it arrived. Now for the leash - the leash is made of a ballistic nylon that will NEVER wear out! Leather will start to break down over the years...ballistic nylon will not and you will always be able to pull your keys out by your leash without worry!
Great Bag But:
I bought this bag when I first saw it on the Lisa Robertson show, I carried it for a couple of weeks no problem. Stored it in the dust bag, and when I got it out to use again, the strap that held the shoulder strap and come unglued. I will have to take to a leather shop and have it redone. I have about 30 Dooney's and this is second one that the strap came unglued.
Quality and workmanship is wonderful. Plenty of pockets, and room for anything and everything. D & B handbags are #1 for me. I have many different brands and types but I seem to gravitate to theirs. I prefer a structured handbag and D & B fills the bill on that. The price is a tad high but you get what you pay for. I will recommend this one to anyone who likes a large and structured handbag, you will not regret it....guaranteed.
Big and Beautiful....
I got this bag in Chestnut. This bag has become my new favorite. The leather of this bag is gorgeous, the bag is very roomy and the front pockets are very useful. I slid a couple of pens in the front pocket and the flap pocket did not open easily....not a problem though, just put the pens INSIDE the flap pocket - problem solved. I found the shoulder strap a little too long so I just punched in a couple extra holes and now it's perfect for me. Had many compliments on the bag....could not be any happier unless the bag was free!
Keep in mind this bag is heavy without anything in it, loaded up it's substantial!
Dooney, You've Done It Again!!!
I own several Dooney bags, and I must say, this is one of the best! Classic design with modern elements. Lots of pockets! Not too heavy, even full of my junk...which often includes the kitchen sink! Ordered the chestnut. I am thinking about getting the natural, as well. Don't hesitate, girls! Don't let this one get away!
purrrfect as is
Got the black as is bag. The only issue was a missing grommet which cost $7 to replace for an otherwise purrrfect Dooney for much less $$$.
Gorgeous, but dirty.
This bag is stunning. Great size and workmanship, however, my bag had 2 dark blotches on the front were the pockets are. So disappointing. Am going to exchange and, hopefully, this one will come to me perfect then I will give it 5 stars.
Large and Lovely
Large and Lovely just like me. LOL! I have been opting for color for years but loved this bag in black. The color of the hardware on this black bag is beautiful. I also love large bags, but do not fill them up. Very stylish and full of quality.
Christmas gift 2013. I grew up riding horses with my Daddy. The leather this bag is made of brought me back to the smells of saddles and bridles in our tack room, it is absolutely stunning leather. the craftsmanship superb. plenty of room inside for anything but holds its shape with just a few personal items. the tazzle pulls on the zipper are awesome and make for an easy pull open and close. I had not a single scratch as some others have reported. the pockets are plentiful and roomy. one thing noticed is- the flap pockets on front don't lift up as easily when the pocket behind it has a medium to large item in it (ie-sunglasses or cell phone) because that pocket is actually part of the flap. this is NOT enough to deter me from carrying it, I just put something smaller in that particular pocket. I love this purse. this is my forth Dooney and I have never been disappointed.
Another stunning bag by Dooney
I've got this bag in Chestnut and I'm in love! The leather is as thick as any quality saddle would be made with. The attention to detail is excellent. I'll be handing this bag down to my grand daughter who is not yet born. This is a bag that will last for generations to come.
The only downside to this bag is the handles on top are a little short. I like to hang my bag in the crook of my arm and being a fluffy girl, its sort of tight. And it is a heavy bag. It's not meant for weak or tiny ladies. This is a HEARTY heap of a bag.
Also the leather does scratch easy, but all you have to do is oil it. But I'm opting to let it be. It gives the bag character. Plus the oils from your hands touching it or rubbing against it will oil it slightly.
I have to say it's well worth the money. I don't think one woman who saw it said nothing. I was stopped 20 times at the store I could hardly finish my shopping.
Thank you Dooney and Bourke for bringing the Florentine leather bags to QVC. I'm in love with the leather and am looking forward to more styles. I already have 3 Florentine bags of yours. Keep them coming. And I will continue to buy them.
this is a small bag, I thought it was a big bag but its not, I was so looking foward to getting the bag and when I saw the si,ze of it I was disappointed, heavy bag though, if you are looking for a big bag this is not it,
