My QVC purchase arrived today! I bought the pocket satchel in brown with the vachetta trim. The brown is lighter than I expected and has a red tone. I do wish it was darker, but at this time feel that I will be keeping the bag.

It was packaged very thoroughly, which was nice.
I will probably sell the key fob at a local consignment shop.
I like the pouch, but do not feel that it is too useful. It is too small and not lined for a cosmetic pouch. It is too large for cards.
I do wish that is had the typical Dooney interior pockets. Inside there is only one zippered pocket on one wall of the bag and a cell sized pocket on the opposite wall.

Overall, it is lovely to look at. Good quality construction and leather.

I agree... beautiful. I love the contrast between the vachetta leather and the darker brown. i like several brands for different reasons but i definitely think D&B uses the best leather that just gets better with age. congrats! and thanks for sharing... :smile:

Congrats Dhampson!

I was at a meeting almost two years ago. I walked in with my navy satchel and a women walked in behind with her brown satchel! That was the only time I've seen that color IRL and I loved it!

I know how you feel about the interior pockets, but the outside zipper pockets really compensate for that. I stopped carrying my navy satchel when I got the crimson satchel because (it was red!) it had the interior pockets. But recently when I was closet diving I pulled out the navy satchel again. Honestly, I think I have more space in the interior. When I transferred my stuff from the crimson satchel my book fit without squeezing it in. I've been thinking about getting it in red.

Enjoy your new beauty!

You sounded a little unsure about your new bag. Did you decide to keep it? It's really a pretty one.
