Sorry I can't be much help- not a Donney fan cuz most of their bags are too heavy before I put anything in them. I like some Coach bags- but the one pictured is not at all my style.
Which one do you like best? It is your purse after all and you are the only one that has to love it! Good luck and let us know what you decide.:tup:

I would go with the dooney, only because the coach looks like it has too much of an open area on the sides and I like the shape of the dooney a bit more. As for color, it depends on if you need another black bag or is there a color you like a bit more? Will the color go with most of your daily outfits?

The 1st is definitely classier and more versatile; however, if you have a few black bags already, I'd go with the Coach. I like the Navy color best.

I like the D&B and it comes in some really cute colors so I wouldn't get black. I like it in orange, green, hot pink or cobalt. You probably already have a really nice black bag or two...

I'm surprised I chose the D&B over the Coach but the Coach just looks too busy imo.

I like the Dooney. The coach has a little too much going on, and I'm not a fan of the silver+bronze combo.

To be perfectly honest, I am not a fan of either, but I probably go for the Dooney in cobalt. It is a classic shape which would be boring in black but more interesting in another color. Don't like the Coach at all, too busy.

Well, the first thing that I thought of was, and no offense to KVZ lovers, was that the Coach bag looked like Kathy Van Zeeland. I'd go with the Dooney.
I agree. I normally like Coach bags, but I am not a fan of that one at all. I, too, would go with the Dooney.

Out of the two, I much prefer the Dooney. It has much cleaner lines, but still has a cute style.
The Coach is much too metallic and busy for me. I could see myself getting tired of the Coach quickly whereas the Dooney would probably make me smile for quite some time!
