Dooney & Bourke HandbagAnd the lady of the house is back from a mini-vacation. Although I love to be back to my beloved Purse Blog, I’d really rather be vacationing still. Luckily for me, I will be off for another short vacation next weekend. Yes, my life is rough. So coming back and feeling very sluggish is making me want to write a brief post. Sorry to those of you who enjoy my typical tangents. I have always been quite torn between to love or not to love Dooney & Bourke. But I do know that I love their All Weather Leather line. It is simple enough to meet many people’s fancies. My favorite for the moment is the shape and simplicity of the Dooney & Bourke East/West Tassel Tote. The bag has one inside zip pocket, a cell phone pocket, an inside key hook, is lined, and has protective feet. Since I know all ladies like a different cup of tea per se, this bag offers all of us a multitude of colors to choose from. For your own personal reference here is the list of colors offered: Aegean blue, black, bone, mint, navy, palomino, powder blue, red, and saddle. Whew. Being a pretty decent L 11″ W 3.5″ H 6.25″ makes the $225 price worth it through Dooney & Bourke.

  • When Dooney and Bourke aren’t doing their horrible “if Coach and Louis Vuitton mated and then let the child they constantly dropped design a bag line” thing that they do, their bags are pretty decent. Although I think that I might just be taken in by the duck hardware.

    I actually found this purse (in black) on the bottom shelf at Nordstrom during my second stroll through the handbags. I had obviously found a gem as the saleslady’s eyes lit up as she commented “I wished I had seen that first!” Upon asking her the price of the bag, again her eyes lit up as she told me it was marked down 50%. She then proceeded to tell me that I should buy a lottery ticket. LOL. I love this purse. I’ve actually had a co-worker molest it and yet another threatening to steal it.

    I love D&B and i really like this bag. I would prefer it not to be in yellow, but i’d still take it!

    Well as long as you stay away from the “Signature” stuff and stay with the Nubuck or Leather you will find a great bag. Their offerings in these areas are very nice.

    As a side comment, the designers should start making more silver hardware for their bags. Gold can be very awkward to match, especially if the bag is more complicated. Also, stop with all the signature-branding. I refuse to be an advertisement for something that should have just been done correctly the first time.

    I’ve always found D & B bags to be way too plain, too boring. (ipad)
