  1. I missed the boat on the TSV price, but this bag grew on me more and more every time I saw it. I have to say, wow, I actually really like this bag more than I thought I would. My first impression is it's smaller than I thought it was going to be, which is great. The coated cotton is nice and supple. It is nice and light weight and has a comfortable strap drop of about 9". It feels very comfortable on because of its slim profile, fitting nicely under the arm. I'm 5'5" and about a size 12/14.

    One little thing that bothers me is the little "Dooney" logos that are printed randomly in the design are all in horrible places. I don't know if I'm being overly picky, but that was one of the details that I really like. The one that is half covered by the strap on the front looks like a loose thread which is what I thought it was at first.

    I think I can easily use this as a purse. I use an organizer and it fits nicely inside with a little room left on the sides.

    It also works as a work tote, with my 14" laptop fitting nicely inside along with some folders and my day planner.

    The little cosmetic pouch is really cute, and has a fabric lining. I really like this piece.

    Overall I think it's a keeper, but I'm seriously thinking of exchanging it just because of the "Dooney" logos that are covered up, knowing full well it would be a gamble. However the shipping costs are a little too high for that. I bet the pink one is really cute too :smile:
     
  2. Thnk u thnk u thnk u for doing this reveal. Looks great
     
  3. Oh, no. It looks amazing. Lol. I have enough on my wish list.
    But it really looks good on you.
    And you had me at "14 inch laptop." I was thinking about getting a work bag. :smile:
     

  4. Thank you and you're welcome :smile:. I always love reading other's reviews.
     

  5. Thank you Bobetta. You and me both...my wish list is way too long for my budget :smile:
     
  6. Congrats on your new tote TB! It looks great on you and it's gorgeous!
     

  7. Thanks MaryBel :smile: I do love it.
     
  8. Congrats!
     
  9. Very sharp looking, TB! :love: Congrats!
     
  10. Very nice TB and it looks great on you! I 'm hoping to catch this one on "as is" in the black/white or pink.
     
  11. Thanks so much :tender:

    Thanks Sarah :girlsigh:

    Thanks E. I had been looking at the as is, but it was taking too long for any to show up.
    I'm just too impatient sometimes :girlwhack: I hope some show up for you soon. Pink is my second favorite. :hbeat:
     
  12. Love it Twoboyz! Darn it, I really didn't want to fall for this bag!! LOL. I was also thinking as a work tote, so maybe I would get more use of it. Looks great on you. I hope if you send it back you will get one with better placed logos.
     
  13. Thanks Rachael! I'm still trying to decide, but I probably won't send it back just for the logos because there would be too much wasted in shipping. I guess I'll just consider it as it's own unique personality. :hrmm: I'm also waiting for my snake shopper to arrive so I can compare the two bags. I might only keep one, even though something tells me I'll end up with both. (sigh). Hopeless.... Is there a cute little emoticon for "destitute"? :wondering
     
  14. Looks great on you! I like the print much better in a real life pic...
     

  15. Thanks! I can't wait to see your black Camilla. You must be very excited. :smile:
