Dooney & Bourke Florentine Leather Clayton Satchel
This bag is beautiful and it has great organization. I receive complements on it all the time (I have the orange which is gorgeous). The only downside if you want to call it that, is that it is very roomy and easy to fill which makes it a bit heavy to carry if you load it up. When I'm out doing some serious shopping I take everything out of it to lighten it up.
Beautiful classic bag
Highly recommend this lovely bag. It is expensive. But with easy pay worth it.
It is beautifully made and goes with everything.
I ordered in British Tan. It has class and elegance.
I get compliments on it from random people when I am out.
Will last for years.
It is large but not huge. I like bigger bags. It has room for everything.
Plus clever pockets for keys and phone.
A great investment. The leather is soft. The interior is beautifully lined.
Beautiful, but not for me.
Got the chestnut. Gorgeous inside and out. Great organization with all of the pockets. Wanted to love it, but it was way too heavy and bulky. The long strap was too long when used either crossbody or shoulder way (I'm 5'2"), and it was very uncomfortable on my shoulder. I also discovered that I am not one who likes to carry a bag in the crook of my arm or by hand, therefore, shorter-handled bags like this are, simply, not for me.
Love this Bag!
I first saw this bag on the Dooney and Burke website but was hesitant in spending so much. Saw it on QVC with easy pay and feel better about monthly payments vs paying in full. So many compliments on the bag. It can get heavy if you are carrying all day, but I keep my strap handy. The bag looks great either way. Going to purchase the hobo style of this bag in black once this one is paid off. Can't wait.
I love Dooney, the perfect quality and color. I would have liked this bag to be a little lighter, it is very heavy and because of that i do not use the strap with the purse. I carry it as a tote. This is the ideal purse for someone that loves large bags.
I watched this bag forever before taking the plunge, but I finally decided that I could no longer resist. I ordered the violet because I thought the color was fabulous. The bag arrived today and I'm surprised. I received a pebbled leather fuchsia handbag! Nothing even close to the Florentine finish I've grown to know and love. The color was more pink than purple. I wanted to purchase this from QVC in order to get the easy pay, but back to the D&B website for this one I go! Tsk Tsk QVC!!!
I love this bag! I've purchased several Dooney's from QVC. This bag, just like all the others, is more beautiful in person than it is over tv. Dooney never disappoints! The leather is always substantial.....and isn't that why we pay a premium for a designer bag. This bag has everything, style and functionality. Run, don't walk to your telephone or computer to get this one. You'll be overjoyed!
Love the Clayton.... Deeper Color Preferred
This would have been my 4th Clayton. I have the orange, ocean and natural already. I love everything about this bag and the weight doesn't bother me. The leather wears beautifully and ages nicely. I drooled over the Violet and expected a deeper mix of pink and purple. Unfortunately the violet was more pink and reminded me of bubble gum. Had the color been deeper I would have welcomed it to the family.
I am in love with my purse
I absolutely love this purse, the color, the room and the detail that went into this purse is amazing. I am very happy with this purchase, not to mention having the option to break the payments down into five payments, made the purchase more affordable for me. Treat yourself or gift this purse to someone special. You will not be disappointed.
I have been drooling over this bag in the Natural for the longest time & when I saw it on the maximum easy pays I knew I had to have it. It's even more gorgeous in person. . Lots of room inside for all of your stuff. Very well made. Unfortunately I'm sending it back-it's so HEAVY. I put all of my stuff in it & realized it would just be too heavy to carry for everyday use. It's a shame because I LOVE this bag and hate to send it back. I know it's the Florentine leather & is a substantial bag, but it should be a little lighter. I'm sad that I have to send it back.
I purchased the violet.....wow, it is gorgeous. I had wanted the chestnut, but decided to go out on a limb and order the violet instead only because I wanted something different. I own many browns and black, that I wanted a pop of color........this violet is a serious pop of color. This color is very deep and to me is more of a pinky purple, maybe fuscia, if that makes sense and the stitching pops against the color......the gold matte hardware is stunning against it as well. I had debated the pink and decided to go with violet because it was darker and more prominent color. I can see myself getting the chestnut eventually, maybe toward next winter, but this violet definitely screams spring time. As far as weight, I filled the bag with all my things, and it is not bad at all, the crossbody strap is fine and the best thing is all the pockets on the bag......room for my keys and quick access to my cell phone. This is one very classy high-end looking bag, very rich color not for the faint of heart.......yes chestnut would be safe and lovely, but this one, wow, she'll definitely get noticed. Thank you Q for the 6 easy pay on this beauty.
' Wow, I love this satchel."
My Clayton Satchel is truly a work of art. The leather is wonderful. This bag has everything I need for a work horse carry all. I have the natural and I will be back for another color. Thanks QVC an Dooney.
