Dooney & Bourke Large Canvas Cosmetic Case (Tan/ Brown)

Okay so yes I love D&B accessories among others too, don't get me wrong I am not a D&B snob, I own other brands , & great stuff too . I just honestly love the quality and craftsmanship they offer, it doesn't just show in the leather goods they have to offer among other styles, like in this case the canvas large cosmetics bag, great exceptional quality especially if you are looking for something to last you a long long time to come!!! I love the sturdiness of the canvas and the lining as well, I love the fuchsia pink color inside and it is nylon which is easy to wipe down incase any make up accidents happen!! LOL!!!  I like that they still applied leather features like the side tassels, and the zipper tab, and also the front leather plaque with the D&B logo in gold, it is to die for!!!. ( I am such a sucker for leather, it just smells so good)  This is my second D&B cosmetics case I own I am gearing towards one of the leather ones they have to offer soon, but I have tons and tons of make up cases that I should probably go through and get rid of before justifying another cosmetic case purchase LOL!!! I got this baby at Zappos.com (check my blog below for there link) for only $35.00 and that is a great deal for the quality you are getting. They have many other styles to offer in their cosmetic bag line, and Zappos always has some type of sale running!! Please see photo's below. (also check out Dooney.com for way more cosmetic case options, including  leather cases)

Donney & Bourke Key Chain - Duck Collection

Among Handbags and other accessories offered by D&B they also have amazing key chains, I love the quality and the weight that comes with them,(this isn't no cheapy chain that'll break or get lost in a couple of days of use)  This one featured here is the most colorful that I have seen recently and I love it to add as an accessories to my hand bags, it adds that extra pop to your bag when you dangle it from your purse, it is versatile too, with all the amazing vivid colors they added to it. I love the features they provided here, the letter's D & B hang from it saying "Dooney & Bourke" on each letter, such great attention to detail, The wonderful round pendants hanging with ducks, and another D&B is great to show everyone who you prefer to feature, letting them know you carry this chain for a reason!! : )  Not saying this wouldn't be great as a key chain (which is what it is) but I just love it as an addition to my D&B bags. This beautiful key chain has jewelery quality metal and features too. (Please see photos below) My lovely honey got me this as a gift from Dooney.com and I was so excited can't wait to get more from them. (retails for $45.00) please check out Dooney.com for other great key chains they have to offer!!! Take Care.

Fossil Pop Stich Coin Purse- Pink

Although I am a D&B fanatic I also love other brands out there, personally from Fossil I love the leather accessories they have, among other accessories from them too. But this coin purse in particular was the cutest one I had seen by Fossil and i had to get in pink, among other colors like soft yellow, green, black and others (listed on their site at fossil.com, or zappos.com) I love the front flap for cards or cash, the back window slip pocket for your I.D. and the top zip enclosure for change and more, it also has a key hook as well, this is the all in one quick grab and go coin purse when you just need the essentials with you, I purchased this coin purse at zappos.com for only $14.00 (us) which I believe to be a steal for genuine leather (remeinds me of the D&B pebble grain leather) and such a great never fading style. Hope you enjoyed my quick insight into the Fossil Pop Stitch coin purse. Please see photo below.

Dooney & Bourke Handbags (featured-Large Pocket Sac-Red)

I am seriously in love with Dooney and Bourke handbags and accessories, so far they are the only handbags that I want to purchase. I have only been collecting them for about 2+ years but I have been delighted every time.

Once I had gotten one I couldn't stop there, it's like when you get a chance to try one of their leather handbags you want to get ever one of them, if that was possible for me, I would have by now. But slowly and surely I will build my collection of these wonderful bags.

I own a couple so far that I am very happy with, a couple of exceptions that I had to return only because it wasn't the right style bag for me, not because there was anything wrong with the workmanship or anything like that? Just personal preference that's all.

So let's get to it, where do I start?

The leather it self is to die for, it is such great quality, durable and sturdy leather. If it be pebble grain, to croco, calf or even vechetta they are all great, my personal favorite for the D&B leather bags are the calf leather bags, to me it is more slouchy and soft, which is what I love in a bag, slouchy and soft.

They smell wonderful like that nice burnt-ish leather smell, and it lingers for ever..... I love it!!!

The quality in the craftsmanship is great these bags will last you and whom ever you hand it down to forever (with great care) The hardware is beautiful brass? (I'm pretty sure) and in gold two tone, which I prefer gold.

The styles that D&B put out every collection they release are great, I am so far very pleased and almost always find a bag that I will enjoy, I personally only love the larger bags they release, I am a big bag girl.

I can't find anything bad to say about D&B leather products they are amazing!!! This all goes to say as well for the accessories by D&B too. You have to see for your self, I guarantee you won't be disappointed!! Please see one of my recent D&B hand bags below for reference. Any further details you would like to know please message me anytime.
