Lovely bright color, I got the yellow - so many compliments. The opening is a bit hard to get anything into I had to buy a special Hobo wallet that was thin enough - and it fits my iPhone, the wallet, a couple small random things, and my sunglasses can lay on top and fit just perfectly. It's hard to get your hand in though for the small items. Stiff leather, seems to be getting a little softer with time. It is gorgeous, so I am happy with my summer purchase in spite of the extra effort needed to wear it.

I have been a loyal Dooney&Bourke customer since they started making purses in the 1970s. Those purses are still in great shape and I still carry them. This purse was a total disappointment! The hardware is not solid brass, the snap is in an awkward spot and doesn't close easily, and the quality is nothing like the Dooneys you see in the stores or buy directly from the manufacturer. I do not recommend this purse. It is not worth the price. It is definitely not the quality and product that Dooney is famous for.

Very neat little bag and surprisingly roomy. Still, if I had seen this purse in a store, I probably would not have purchased it for two reasons: the leather starts out very stiff (I got it in purple; maybe other colors are softer?) and the inside pocket is made of the same rigid leather. If your keys or pens drift behind that envelope of leather, which is attached only at the top of the bag, it takes a lot of digging to find it again. All that said, it's been my go-to purse all winter long.

I love my Donney & Bourke Happy Bag. I bought it in purple which I understand is now hard to get. It is small and not very practical but I knew that before buying it. It is just a fun bag and perfect for on the go as it is a cross body bag and sits on my hip like it was meant to be there. I know all of you bag lovers out there will know what I mean when I say that. It is very well constructed of smooth (and substantial) leather with an adjustable strap. I have never spent this much on a bag before but this is worth the splurge.

This is a really cute bag and really fun. I love crossbodies and got it in purple and I love it. The leather is a bit stiff, but I think it helps keep its shape. If it was a little less expensive, I would buy it in yellow also. Really cute and fun. I carry a small wallet, iPhone, glasses and epi-pens and it is fine.

Its a perfect small cross-body bag to carry the essentials. Yes, the leather is stiff, but it has to be to maintain the cute body style of the bag. Its still top-grade leather, don't let the stiffness fool you. No, this isn't a $300 Dooney bag, you're not paying that much, so you're not going to get a lining. Despite that it still has some nice Dooney touches. I love the lanyard inside the bag for you keys. No hunting around the bottom of you bag for keys, just follow the lanyard. Plenty of ways to adjust the strap to make it the perfect length. I loved this bag except for one design flaw. The snap closure comes up from the body of the bag to the flap. Having the snap go in this direction make it impossible to secure the bag with one hand, or quickly. If the snap went from the flap and secured on the body of the bag, or it was a magnetic closure, you could open and close the bag with one hand. I ended up returning the black one I bought due to this, since I want it to be an everyday bag. I'll probably order another one in a fashion color as a "fun" bag.

I got this bag in purple and love the color of it! You can adjust the bag to were it lays on your hip a little bit. The bag looked so cute online and it did when I received it. The problem with this bag is that its not very big at all. I can fit my keys wallet and phone in it. Also I don't like how the flap to open the bag is very stiff and it's hard to open and put your hand in to get or put things in it. It's a very stylish bag if you don't mind not carrying a lot.

This bag looks really cute online; however, in person it looks very cheap. Leather is really stiff, inside is unfinished, and bag is too small to fit a large wallet in. Returning.
