Dooney & Bourke Florentine Leather Large Pocket Satchel
I was so happy when I received the package with the purse in it BUT when I opened it, the purse had many scratches and indents in the front of the purse! The back side was smooth. I'm going to return it for another. I was so disappointed I couldn't keep as it is a beautiful purse ....a big investment for me. You know when they showcase the purses on the show, they don't show them with scratches & indents.
OMG! THIS IS ONE OF THE BEST!
Just received this yesterday and took it to work today and boy was I happy. This will be one of my daily work handbags. I got this in the dark brown and it is gorgeous, And everything fits perfectly. The large outside pocket is great for my phone, keys and everything I need in an instant. The quality is magnificent, the color is rich, and I am really glad I got this one. It will stand up to my rough handling for work, grocery shopping, tossing it in the car, etc. This will be my new "go-to" bag for day-to-day running around. LOVE THIS HANDBAG!!!
I love the florentine dooney bags - such beautiful leather and craftmanship. I needed a basic black purse for when I travel for work, as when I travel I need my purse to be a little larger. I have a dooney medium pocket satchel that is black with tan trim in the pebble leather, but it's just a tad too small for those trips - for some reason I stuff a lot more in my purse when I have to go out of town for work. I bought this bag "as is" - probably a return. I have purchased as is bags before that didn't even seem like they had ever been taken out of packaging from the supplier, but this one was probably a return. There was a smidge of dust or dirt on it that wiped right off and other than that was absolutely perfect and more than worth the discounted price. I am very hard on purses and this is the only brand I buy because they literally wear for years with no visable wear. This particular bag is classic yet trendy at the same time and I love that I can carry it cross body because I have a small child, and that option is easier when out and about with her. Yes it's an expensive bag, but there is no comparison in quality and durability.
Love Love Love
My husband bought this handbag for me for Christmas. I have been looking at Dooney bags for over three years waiting for the perfect first one. This is the one! Love it! The craftsmanship and quality are amazing. The size is generous and the outside pockets are perfect for items you need quickly. The inside pockets keep everything organized and easily accessible. The shape and structure give this bag it's timeless and classic look. Again, love it! Unfortunately, the hardware rings attaching the handles to the bag were corroded. Even though the rings had a little rust, I didn't want to part with it. The bag is absolutely beautiful. However, due to a neck injury I could not handle the weight of this bag. I am so bummed that I had to return it. I will be ordering another Dooney Florentine bag that is lighter. I hope I love it as much as this one.
The Total Handbag
I normally do not write reviews, but thought I needed to on this one. Wow, this is a knock-out handbag. Everything you ever wanted via pockets, not too wide (as some D/B can be), size; just to name a few. Yes, it has weight to it, but they told you that upfront in the video and not overdo it with your stuff. I necessarily did not want it to be cross body, so I took it to my local purse/shoe repairman and he made the strap shoulder length for me and NOW it is perfect in every way. This will be my everyday handbag for a long time.
Bad Quality Control
I just received my second bag in the red after returning the first because the gold rings attached to the handles were green with oxidation. Well it looks to me like the same bag was returned to me or there is a defect in this particular style from the manufacturer. However, when I returned the first bag I noted that I saw other reviews complaining of the same problem and said I hoped there would be some inspection by QVC. Apparently not. I have recently purchased two other Dooney bags from QVC with no problem. I do not expect to pay over $400 for a bag (with shipping and tax) and receive such an obviously defective piece of merchandise twice. Its a shame because it is otherwise a lovely bag in a perfect size and color (the only reason for the two stars) -but its going back again- this time for a refund.
GREAT Dooney !
Bought for my Mom last Christmas and she loved it! She put her purse things in it the very next day.I know she really appreciates it.She said I shouldn't spend so much money on her.I said I do easy pay on QVC....it's great!She is worth a Dooney!Each Christmas I spoil one person with a Dooney.My Mom Took it on her vacation and felt like a million bucks! Dooneys last forever and it keeps giving back to you with quality and durability.Love the iPad/kindle pocket!
True red beauty
I have this in red and its bright and true. If you want a beautiful red bag in a classic style that will never grow old, this bag is for you! I love it and I am sure I will be enjoying it for many years to come, as I do all my Dooneys.
So Sad !
This has got to be the worse Dooney I have ever seen. I have
always loved them til this one. I have never seen a Dooney with
rust on it til now. Shocking !! I'm very sad, it looks like I picked it
up at a wal-mart.
really red wow
I have 30 Florentines but not this style. the leather on Florentines is becoming pebbled and not so fragile.love having the strap. it is 5 stars
a couple complaints :(
I ordered this bag in dark brown.....a beautiful rich color ! However, I have had repeated bad luck with the leather quality of the many Florentine bags I have ordered on QVC and have returned them all. Now, I order through D&B directly and have not been disappointed with the leather so far.
i also have seen and bought these Florentines at Macy's where I have the hands on experience. I ordered this bag through QVC because I did not find it at D&B's site. The leather was uneven in color and grain.
The front pocket does not close easily with the magnetic closure.....a big disappointment
as this pocket is what attracted me to this bag.
Best D&B bag I have and a classic!
I love this bag. I bought it in Black (absolutely gorgeous) and Chestnut (rich and beautiful). The size is perfect. A bit bigger than the medium size, but not too big. And the outside pockets add great organization. I open the bag and can see everything in it. I don't find it too heavy. But you should could make it so with the contents. I have 30 or so D&B bags and I think these are my 2 favorites. Really the most useful. So glad I bought them. Now if it would go on easypay again, I would get the red!
Great bag. A classic
