I love the small Barlow bag and can't decide between emerald and Bordeaux ? I'm young so I want it to look young a fresh with a pop of color! I have many lv and many black bags, I'm sick of the lv, I want something beautiful and fun. I realized that I spend money on lv and the Dooneys or made just as well of not better!!! For a much better price, although the are still expensive I think! Btw I just ordered this bag and I'm obsessed! I always thought Dooneys was very country, but these styles are gorgeous!!

Go to the QVC website for a live demo to see the colors. They featured this croco bag in the Small Dawson which is a different style and a little larger than the bag you are considering.

Item no: A272210

My pick would be the Bordeaux. It's my favorite color so it's a no brainer for me. However the emerald is gorgeous because it shows the most highs and lows in color variation. I think you can't go wrong with either, but I think the Bordeaux might remain current and classic longer. It feels more elegant to me where the emerald feels fun. It all depends what you're going for.
I love the snake Sloan hobo! Stunning!

Thank you! For your help everyone, I think I'm going for the emerald because I want something fun and fresh and edgy and it makes my heart sing more. If I don't love it in person I can always exchange it for the Bordeaux . I have a lot of classic elegant bags so I wanted to do something different! I'm so excited about the Sloan Python hobo , I feel like it's a statement bag, but also being classic at the same time!
still can't believe how beautiful Dooney bags are , they have come along way I feel!

koukla: congratulations on both your new handbags. I think the emerald croco is fresher than the Bordeaux. But I love both colors and you can't go wrong with either one. I also think the python Sloan is very sharp and a hobo is a young and modern style.

I echo LavenderJunkie's congratulations. I would have a tough time choosing between the emerald or the Bordeaux. I'm glad you were able to decide. I'd love to see your Sloan when you get it, I've been hankering for it.

Since you say you want a pop of color, maybe consider the emerald. The bordeaux is deep and rich. Here's the small Dawson which is basically the Barlow with 2 front pockets added.

Beautiful!!!! Question, do you find the front zip pockets useful. I always thought it would be bothersome because of curve in the bag by the zippers.
