Dooney & Burke


 I got this little pretty while I was on vacation. [here]. It was 40%  off with an additional 25% discount because it was the fourth of July weekend. **Score **.  I like the shape of the bag and I lovvvve the color and it has feet( **double score**). My sister said it was giving her a 60s vibe.

I checked my bags and found this Dooney above I’m guessing is from circa 2000-2001. Dooney makes good leather products that wear well over time. As a brand I think they fell victim to the coat of many colors syndrome as did Coach and Louis Vuitton to some extent. I like all types of handbags but for the most part I tend to lean towards classic shapes and clean lines and with some exceptions usually stay away from busy prints and logos. I used to have a closet with more patterns and prints,(when my thighs were smaller and I didn’t need the slimming effect of monochrome colors) and I was always afraid of looking like a bowl of off brand alphabet soup with a heavily logoed bag.

Yeah for bright accessories and great sales :).

    I am completely jealous right now because I remember falling in love with that bag when it came out. I so wanted to get it, but never did and I was looking through a style lookbook I created and saw the picture of that bag in a cobalt blue and magenta color. I still swoon!!Enjoy that beautiful new bag!!!
