@Boehm Collector   I think that the Mila tote it is a bit structured looking. But, again, I like softer lines as a personal preference.

 

The Selleria collection is a very dressy sophisticated line in any case. 

 

ILoveDooney has the Selleria Satchel with more rounded contours that got great reviews.  The seasonless gray is stunning. But then, I love gray, full stop. Woman Happy

 

One inside zip pocket. Two inside pockets. One cell phone pocket. Inside key hook. Handle drop length 4". Strap drop length 24". Lined. Zip closure. Feet. 

Approximately measures H 10.5" x W 6" x L 12".

 

 

 

 

The satchel comes in bone also. 

 

 

Nice to have options !!  Let us know what you decide.

 

 


Hi @hicindy2  ,, I actually like the silhouette of the Selleria Satchel better.  But it is too small for my purposes. I always have so much to carry around with me.  LOL

@Boehm Collector I like the color! The style is too structured for me these days. And the stitching design reminds me of ... well... underwear! Woman Embarassed Woman LOL

@Pecky  Just an FYI... Our friend @handygal  ordered the woven tote in the light taupe color directly from Dooney and when it arrived it was actually more of the Dooney 'elephant' color.

@stevieb : Thank you for pointing this out. You beat me to it.

 

@Pecky : The photo of how the color looks in real life, compared to the Dooney website, can be found in post #1643. Here's another copy of the photo, which l took under artificial light. It did look slightly lighter in daylight. As you can see, it looks nothing like the "Light Taupe" on their site. I returned it.

@handygalThanks so much for the pic.  You are right it is not light taupe at all.  Did you like the style of the bag?  Did the straps stay on your shoulders?  I may have to go for a different color as I wanted something lighter.

I am loving the Brahmin Oasis bag!  The colors are gorgeous.  


@Pecky : I liked everything about the bag except the color.  Woman Frustrated  

 

It's not too heavy. The straps are a good length, and seemed to stay on my shoulder. The size is good too-- neither too big nor too small.

 

Let us know what you decide.

@Boehm Collector : I'm not usually a satchel/crossbody girl, so l'm probably the wrong person to ask. But l think the shape is too boxy, and l can't get EEL's @EdithEllenLily  "underwear" comparison out of my mind.  Woman Surprised  Woman LOL

Re: Dames and Legends... What Becomes Us Most...

@1Professor  Yes, I got it and in fact just pulled it out to consider late last week. I opted for something else, but might give this one a try next. I believe you also got it in a color or colors... Wish I had instead of the same old brown... Still nice looking though.

I got it in brown, the original.

 

Later found it in blue and lipstick pink at the outlet—but ended up consigning those. Still use and enjoy the brown!

 

They had a drawstring in that sutton that I wish I had!

You're welcome and no problem @handygal . I knew you'd respond, but saw her post and didn't know how quickly she might be ordering . As it turns out, apparently it wasn't an issue...

@1Professor  I think it was the red I wished I'd got, blue being my second choice. I seem to recall they came after the brown and I couldn't justify more than one. I suppose the brown is really the most universal and it's a good looking bag.

Re: Dames and Legends... What Becomes Us Most...

With the Macy's Friends and Family sale, they have an Amelie tote in steel blue Florentine for  under $150. That has to beat the Big Deal saffiano version for twice that amount. I don't happen to see many Florentine bags pop up at TJM. It certainly beats the Dooney clearance price of $246 plus tax.

 

If she likes steel blue your neighbor could save some money--Florentine.

@JavaQueen   Thank you !!  My neighbor is heading to Macy's as we speak...I texted her with your info.  She has a gift card left over from Xmas and is on a mission. She has shoulder issues so it is best to try on bags if she can.  Thanks again for the input...

And, because of my Radley obsession, she is checking out this Radley nylon tote to knock around with
