Although my beloved Megs owns a Dooney Bucket Bag in white (that I am not particularly fond of to begin with), I am not a big D&B fan. Their recent line of handbags has been more than questionable. Some of their bags in the Alto, All-weather leather, or their croc duffles lines are still acceptable and presentable, but the new Dooney Bolero Bag just shoots the bird off the roof top.
The overall shape of the bag may be alright and easy on the eyes, but the bright colors and assets are not. The tassles up front look like Boyscouts Gone Wild Vol. 3 1/2. It looks like something a confused transvestite cowboy would wear, for Christ’s sake. Of course, no offense to those readers that actually like it. At 345 bucks, the Bolero Bag ranks #1 as our pick for Fug Bag of the Week. I will still uphold my right to freedom of creative expression and call you a masochist if you choose to purchase this piece at Dooney & Bourke.com.
