This is a really cute bag but it's a bit too small. I don't carry that much but felt the bag was crammed when trying it out. If it was only an inch longer, I'd keep it.

Great bag! Size is perfect - big enough to hold the essentials, yet not too big to wear as a cross body bag when you don't want something too bulky. The ivy green color is very dark green, with an almost black tint, so it works with many shades of green. Can be used for all seasons.

A lovely bag if you didn't want to use the cross body strap. I'm 5'1" and on the shortest hole the bag was below my hip. Too bad because I love Dooney and Bourke and have been searching for a year for the perfect bag. I thought this would be the one; it's a great size and made of quality materials. Thanks Zappos for the best customer service!

Usually I do a lot of research before making a purchase and that was the case when I bought this bag. Satchel style works best for me and although I was afraid that the bag might be too small, I'm glad to report it's just perfect. I don't have a problem with fitting my entire hand into the purse. I'm not using the crossbody style but am happy that it's an option.

This is the absolute best all around bag. It works great for cross body, over the shoulder or just use the handles. Its roomy inside with great organization. The leather is buttery soft and extremely comfortable to wear, plus its classic lines make it a chic alternative to a cross body pouch type purse. This is my new go to bag!

It is slightly smaller than it looks in the photo, but a very nice bag. Classic D&B leather, sturdy, plenty of room for basics. The strap is nice and long. Great bag.

I really wanted to like this beautiful little purse. I do not think that I have met too many Dooneys that I have not fallen in love with. Unfortunately this well made, purse is a little too small for regular use. I could not fit the kitchen sink into it. The major flaw with this purse is the strap. I am under 5' and with the strap in the last hole, it still hung down to the bottom of my hips - no way would it be convenient to reach into it. If you had it had to be altered, it looks like it would be a project that would have to be done by a very careful shoe repair shop. The strap would have to be cut evenly on both sides and then re-stitched to the right length. Also, and this is something that I have had a problem with during my last Dooney purchase, the zipper is rather hard to pull. I had to search through many many Dooney Satchels in the store before I Finally found one that did not stick. I would have loved to give this five stars in every category, but the strap would be a major problem for anyone who was not tall. I had to return it.

This is a beautiful bag, but it is too small for my needs. The strap is so long even in the last hole. I would have to be a foot taller to use it! I am under 5'. I am returning it. It is great quality.

Purchased as a gift for my wife to take on vacation she found it to be a great purse and 60-70% of the women we met asked her where to purchase the bag and we gave them your information.

Wow…this bag is the cutest thing EVER. And a great buy at the sale price. I love it just because it is a smaller size and is easy to grab and carry without weighing it down with heavy stuff that I tend to carry. The white bag was my choice this time, and I may get another color. Can't resist.

I just got this cute little bag today and absolutely adore it! It is the perfect size bag for me. I can easily put my wallet, cell phone, lip gloss, wet wipes, gum, and compact powder in it. This is my first small/cross-body bag! I love that I don't have to carry it in my hands and its lightweight! Tired of heavy bulky bags where everything gets lost!

I now own four of these bags. Yes the strap is to long, so I took them over to a shoe repair shop and for about $12.00 they cut the strap to the right length for me and they were done in a couple of hours. No big deal. It holds all I need and since I dislike large bags because I don't want to carry the kitchen sink I think this bag is great. Not heavy, holds more than you think and is well made. That's why I have four of them. Don't miss out on a great bag just because the strap is stupidly long.

Great purse. I love the Dooney and Bourke quality and I own several. This was a hard to find color but well worth my time. Perfect size with great organization for someone who wants a stylish smaller bag with 100% practicality.

This is the perfect cross body bag! It can be thrown over your body on the go, hung over your shoulder, straps doubled up for a shorter length, or simply carried by the handles. It is small enough to grab and go, but deceivingly large enough to hold everything you need while remaining easily accessed. I love it!

This is the BEST purse I have ever owned. If you like S/M purses, this is terrific. Lots of interior pockets including a zippered compartment. Top opens wide for easy access to contents. Room for everything: phone, wallet, mints, pick pocket, pill box, grocery store cards, flashlight, lipstick, comb, glasses, eye drops and more! And BTW, I LOVE ZAPPOS!

I received this bag as a Christmas gift. For me it is the perfect size. I fit my wallet, eyeglass case, medicine bottle cell phone And keys. My hand fits comfortably inside the bag. Love this bag. Only complaint is strap length but I just switched strap with a shorter strap off another black Dooney bag I own. Definitely my go to Dooney bag!

I have been on the quest for the perfect purse for some time now. I wanted a smaller bag to assist me in lessening the weight of a larger bag loaded up with junk, but also wanted something that looked stylish. This bag is perhaps a wee bit smaller than I would have liked, but I LOVE the looks of it. It is very well-made and is large enough to carry around the necessities. It has 2 pockets (one perfect for cell phones,) a zipper pocket in addition to a 4th slot which I find great to hold coupons and receipts. The handles are the perfect size for carrying although it is a little snug when I carry it around my wrist.

Love this! And, I get a lot of compliments on it too. It's versatile in that you can wear it across your body or you can just carry it as a small handbag. It is big enough to hold makeup, a small wallet, and some tissues, your phone, and keys, but not much more than that. But, that's perfect for me. Love it.

I have had my eye on the bag for probably a year and the only thing that kept me from buying it was the ridiculously long strap. I was looking for a new bag and everywhere I went they are either luggage size or itty bitty and would barely hold a cell phone so after much consideration I bought this bag, brought it home and pulled out my husband's hole punch and punched a hole in where I wanted it to fit. It works great. Do not let the strap length bother you. You can do what I did or take it to a leather shop, which I still might do. But in the meantime I really like this bag. It holds a small wallet, cell phone, Aspirin and a few other things. I do not like huge bags and lately my other bags see to bother my shoulders so I was looking for a light weight bag and this seems to be the one.

Dooney Bourke never goes out of style. Classic. I first bought this bag in black, and loved it so much I went back for seconds (brown) then thirds (needed a touch of color so I went with tangerine). I get more compliments with the tangerine than any other bag I own. I love DB. You can't go wrong in terms of style, craftsmanship, selection, or comfort. With the Zappos pricing, DB is a perfect fit for any budget.

I was searching for a crossbody bag that had more room and was stylish. This one seems right but the strap was way too long for me and then there is this weird hole at one end of the zipper - it doesn't reach all the way to the end and leaves a quarter size hole, generally, if a bag zips, I want it zipped all the way, not part of the way. Overall, I still haven't found a bag that's just right, but I'll keep searching.
