By the way, what did you think of the Mickey Mouse patterns? 


@Kachina624 I'm probably going to get in trouble for this one too, but I don't get the appeal of anything Mickey or Disney.....

 

PS  Thank you for the forgiveness. Woman Very Happy My dislike of the new collection has more to do with it's execution than the theme.  I should have stated that better.

Re: Dooney has a hokey new collection.

Did they have to make the motif so huge?  

Sometimes smaller and subtle is classier.  And I have many Dooney bags.  They are all tasteful.

@faeriemoon    I can't imagine an adult carrying a Mickey Mouse handbag, especially considering their cost, or any of the "themed" bags.

No worries @faeriemoon they look hokey to me too... A subtle western motif might have been one thing but that massive horseshoe is just ridiculous... It's unfortunate because some of the silhouettes and colors that are part of the collection would be pretty without the horseshoe... This one is right up there with those oversize locks they used on whatever short lived collection that was... You remember, the one that had people wondering if they could cut the locks off the bags... And also agree, I have no need for a several hundred dollar bag that celebrates Disney characters and they went a bit too far with the sports memorabilia bags...

@Kachina624 I had a black horse and a black saddle with a red seat, and a Navajo print black and white saddle blanket!  I thought I looked F I N E!

 

When we bought the saddle my dad kept saying "That's not the nicest saddle" and trying to get me to get another one, but no way!  Black horse and black saddle!  I was in horse heaven!  I was 12 or 13 and was my first BIG horse!

I could see the gambling casino ladies carrying that bag for luck.

@Sooner   I had a burgundy colored saddle but ended up with a gray horse.  My, weren't we fashionable?

Re: Dooney has a hokey new collection.

Considering the (what I presume to be) large number of people who live on farms or ranches and have horses, or just ride horses, I think this is a great selection for them! This design wouldn't be something I'm interested in, but there are plenty of other designs that are.
