The New Dooney Florentine Satchel – the ‘Must Have’ Handbag
OMG. It is the return of the classic handbag from Dooney! The new line of Dooney & Bourke Florentine Leather collection handbags is the must-have bag for every woman. Finally, Dooney has ‘seen the light’ and returned to the classic styling that made Dooney so famous and so highly desired. Here it is… my absolute favorite is the Dooney Florentine Satchel in natural (tan) This is the clearly the designer handbag of the season and for anyone who is a Dooney handbag lover, this is the bag to buy.
This leather Dooney satchel is absolutely gorgeous. The vachetta leather is buttery soft and supple to touch but it is substantial in both texture and quality. There is weight to this bag and a wonderful sense of sturdiness. Sometimes Dooney satchels seem overwhelming both in size and shape. But, not the new Dooney & Bourke Florentine Satchel. The size is perfect, (dimensions: 15″ x 6.5″ x 9.5″ and weight: 3.80 lbs). The quality is outstanding. The interior has a zippered storage pocket, plus two inside pockets for your wallet and a separate pocket for your cell phone. This Dooney satchel comes with both carry handles as well as a cross body strap…all in gorgeous leather.
The workmanship on this Dooney satchel is the finest I have ever seen. There are lots of extra touches like the whipstitching in a beautiful accent color on the handles. The delicate leather tassles have a teal color suede on the inside…just enough to add elegance and sophistication to the bag. You’ll feel as though you’re carrying a finely crafted work of art when you carry it. This bag is substantial, so if you need a smaller bag, choose the smaller Dooney version of the Florentine satchel, called the Dooney Florentine Small Satchel (dimensions: 13” x 5.75” x 8”).
The new Dooney Florentine collection is offered in both ‘natural’ and black. The ‘natural’ is a tan and is a rich, warm color (clearly my first choice). The natural color is perfect for fall, winter and spring. Dooney has finally returned to its successful roots and come out with a classic style bag again. This is clearly the must have designer bag. It’s well worth the money – and with Dooney, it will last a lifetime.
