First time I am seeing or hearing about this designer. I was watching this morning while getting ready for work and I especially like A222946 in the cognac.

Any of you ladies know or own these bags?

I don't think they ar well made. The pockets are not lined in leather like the Dooneys. Just not my kind of bag for the money.

Don't know too much about them but they are expensive. I would rather put that money towards a Dooney.

I want this one. It reminds me of my longhaired Dachshund A222555

There were some pretty bags on. What a great thing to see when I woke up. I sleep alone, with my TV on.

I just got my second one ever. I wanted to try out a larger bag from her. I really like it. I got the woven hobo in the Cognac/Whiskey combination. The front zipper pocket is very usable and it is lined 100% in leather. The large rear pocket is leather on the exterior, but lined in the linen, just like the interior. NOTE: I posted about "my new acquisition" in the Dooney forum.

It is nice to branch out and try other purse lines. I recently received a Dooney Florentine drawstring (no exterior pockets at all on that one). I also have an item from Vera Bradley on the way. Personally, I love the variety.

In case you're wondering, I returned the crossbody from earlier. I liked it a lot, but when I put my essentials inside, it was too tight of a fit.

Branch out - give it a try. It appears to be really well made. It is not highly adorned with logos. The leather is embossed in just one place with the name of the bag, but it does not stand out, say like an all over signature Dooney or Coach purse/tote does.

I am just glad we have options and plenty to choose from!!!!

I think she makes some pretty bags but they are expensive. I feel like no one has ever heard of them except on here.

The only place I've found them for sale besides Q is on their website. I'm so out of it that I had no idea who "Camila Alves" is...lol. I guess being Matthew's wife has its perks.

I wanted to add:

I returned the original one because of the way the weaving was finished in a couple of areas. The replacement arrived and it is MUCH, MUCH BETTER.

The inconsistency part is frustrating. Hopefully, that will be worked out. Now, I have my purse and I can enjoy it for as long as I like.

MSA enjoy your bag after going through my handbag collection I decided to enjoy the bags that I have not used yet before buying another one and hopefully stick with it, but a new bag is so tempting.{#emotions_dlg.ohmy}
