Decisions, decisions! Trying to decide between these two bags.

They are both completely different. I don't own a red nor a taupe. I'm wondering if the DKNY is as functional as it looks. Miss practicality (me), is wondering if I place eye glass cases on the outside pockets if it will show bulging through the leather. At the same time, I have had my eye on the D&B bag for the past 4 years and have hesitated in buying it because I prefer a regular dog leash closure and not a signature closure.

All comments and opinions are appreciated! I apologize in advance for only displaying the links. To this day, I can't figure out how to download the photo!

The DKNY looks almost exactly like the Coach Phoebe style, which I really like - it's a comfortable shoulder bag and I haven't had any issues with my glasses case causing the leather to bulge.

I love the DKNY bag - very classy and elegant, and yet it's got laid-back style to it. I heartily dislike the big old hunk of silver clip hardware on the D&B. It totally takes away from the style; and it's almost like the bag is carrying you, rather then you carrying the bag, KWIM?

Thanks indiaink!!!! :hugs:I ordered it. I should have known that if I hadn't ordered the D&B for the past 4 years, why now? As I said, I love the style but could never get past the closure. It should have been done with a more delicate dog latch like the one RM uses. I plan to post once I receive it.

Thank you!!

I've debated that D&B for a long time too, but never ordered it. Guess it must be the logo-lock. Love the DKNY bag - please post reveal pics when you receive it!
