I really like this crossbody. At first, the leather had a matte-like finish and color was light camel-tan natural but after a couple of month's use, it now has darkened to a golden caramel tan, has further softened, and has developed a shiny patina finish. Simply gorgeous quality leather. All scratches and scuffings are easily and completely rubbed off by my fingers. I love the leather and this styling so much that I went ahead and ordered the east/west satchel in the same florentine vachetta leather (with front pocket and whipstitch details too). These bags will last me a very long time.

Do not buy this purse whatever you do! Let me preface this by saying I carry a normal amount of things in my purse, phone, wallet, keys and a lipstick. I bought the purse in July, and loved the look and feel of the leather. I wore it out for 2 nights and on the second night the strap broke (totally ruined my night, because now I had an oversize clutch!). I called Zappos and they were nice enough to send me another purse, the exact same one. With my new purse, I went out to a bar, and within 30 minutes of arriving the exact same thing happened - the purse broke in the exact same spot. Tearful, I called Dooney and Bourke, expecting the same quality of customer service as I get from Zappos. I was sorely mistaken. The woman in customer service was rude and unhelpful, and offered me a repair of the same purse or a not much credit to Dooney and Bourke, applicable to a purchase of retail. What? I sent the purse for repairs in early October, and received the purse in mid-December. Confident with my newly repaired purse, I went out, and of course, the purse broke again in the same spot! Awful, do not buy this purse of purses like this from Dooney and Bourke!

I got this bag in black, and it's very well made and looks both durable and elegant. The leather stitching is a great touch. But I find the bag difficult to use. The bag is 9" wide, as described, but the zipper at the top opening is closer to 7" wide, This makes it hard to get items in and out, like my wallet for example. Really wish that top zipper was just a little wider or that this bag was also available in a larger size. It's really a beautiful bag, just doesn't work for me.

I bought this bag in white with matching wallet. It is just the perfect bag. I think I will get the natural color also, it would be perfect for fall. Crossbody bags are my fav and Zappos is my favorite site to shop on. Love their customer care and the shipping is so speedy and free.

I just received my bag and I like it. My wallet, kindle and phone fit perfect... I had to take my kindle out of the protector to fit.

Absolutely beautiful bag. The photo does not do it justice. When I opened the box, the fragrance of rich leather overtook me and just about filled the room. The stitching in a lighter color thread contrasts beautifully with the dark brown leather. An incredibly handsome cross body. My only regret is that the top opening isn't a bit bigger because I have a gigantic wallet. But wallet and Otter Droid and a few other small essentials fit just fine.

This is a beautiful bag in a beautiful leather. Unfortunately, it was too small for my needs. The top opening is much too narrow to get my things out and I do not like having to struggle with my purse. I need to be able to use a normal size wallet, so if you keep a small wallet and minimal items this is a great bag for you!

This bag is perfect for travel or if you only carry a few items. It was about two inches too small to accommodate all my things and I am devastated to return such a stylish bag. I am exchanging it for Lodis Audrey Becky Crossbody which has 4 extra inches total. If this bag will work for you I highly encourage you to grab it.

Well made, stylish bag that is perfect for my needs. It is a bit heavy but that is due to the quality of the leather. The 4 pockets keep the contents organized. There is one aspect that I think could be improved. It would be helpful if the strap were redesigned to make the bag more comfortable.

I was looking for a smaller bag in black and this one is perfect! Easily holds my wallet, cell phone and small "extras" bag. Perfect for night out or even days where I don't feel up to lugging around a bigger handbag. Super high quality leather, very well made and the design has just enough "edginess" that even my teenage daughter thinks it is "cool"! I know I will get many years of solid use out of this bag, so it was worth the higher price...love it!

What a beautiful bag this is. The quality of the leather if fantastic and the size is perfect. Not too large or too small. The outside pocket holds my cellphone and glasses so I'm no longer fishing through my bag to find them. I highly recommend.

I bought this bag in the tan and like all D&B bags they are stiff a while and after some use they soften up and often patina. This is a great cross body bag in that it delivers style and function. I can put all my essentials into it and be hands free.

Perfect for going out on the town or shopping at the mall. A decent size for a small wallet, cell phone, reading glasses and lipstick.

I bought this bag for my vacation to Europe. It was the perfect size. I wanted a bag that would hold my wallet, phone, camera and some other small essentials. But was also not too bulky and heavy. This bag has lots of compartments to make you stay organized while travelling. The over the shoulder strap on the bag was convenient while travelling. Loved the bag.

Lovely handbag. Perfect size for a crossover or a shoulder bag. I have a very big hard shell eyeglass case and it does not fit in all my bags but it does in this one, along with a wallet, lipstick, keys, phone and several small items. The moss is a gorgeous color.

This purse measures up to all the other crossbodies that I have, and the leather is so rich. Dooney makes such quality products. It is a little stiff, but I expect it to soften up with use. While the central compartment is tight, the front pocket and back zipper offer space for keys and cell phone. Many Dooneys are 4-6 inches across the bottom. That is way too wide for a crossbody. I appreciate the narrower style, but could use an inch wider. The natural color is lovely and very equestrian. I like the purse very much and use it daily.

I love the look of this crossbody bag - the leather is beautiful, and the bag is well-made. It is a little on the small side, but I am trying to get away from using large shoulder bags, so maybe it will just take some getting used to on my part. Overall, I am happy with this bag.

I got this in natural for my daughter. The first time she carried it, the side rubbing on her hip turned black and we could not get the stain out. I even used a leather cleaner and oil. She was wearing a pair of jeans that were at least 3 years old that had been washed more than 100 times. She loves the style but was disappointed that it could not be cleaned.

I really liked the look of this bag but the zipper barely opens enough to put your hand in. And the zipper was difficult to open.
