Back in September, I bought myself a Dooney & Burke purse as a birthday gift. I love good quality leather, so I usually buy Dooney & Bourke purses. They look fabulous and last forever. This year I decided to get a red purse since I don’t have a red D&B.
I bought this red Logo Lock tote from the Dooney & Bourke website. I usually buy my D&B bags on QVC because they give you extras like key fobs and wallets. But this purse was only available on the Dooney & Burke site at the time…and I just had to have it.
As soon as I saw the logo lock, I fell in love. It has two sides. One side is white with the Dooney & Burke name written in gold. The other side is all gold with the duck logo. You can swivel the lock to display either side.
The purse came in Florentine leather which is soft, supple, and gorgeous. The red color was little orange for me, but I felt confident it would darken as the leather aged and developed a patina.
I haven’t made up my mind what I’m going to do, but I definitely shipped the purse back. The whole exchange process will take about a month. I have come to hate this purse, so I will probably get a different purse even if I have to take a loss.
In the meantime, I’ve gone back to what I know and purchased a new birthday purse in a different style and color from QVC. They have a fabulous return policy, and I’ve never had any problems with their purses. I’ll post a review once it arrives.
Stay tuned for my next post, I’ll tell you about another Dooney & Burke birthday gift that worked out perfectly.
