Paula Can you Help Me Choose a Purse?

Hi Paula,

I would like your assistance in assessing purse sizes. I know you have all the dimensions written down on your website, I am a very visual person and my brain is getting boggled comparing the numbers. You have hands on experience with the bags.

Will you name a couple of bags that are the largest overall, while being narrowest at the base? I do not care for a purse that sticks out from my body a great deal and a 6″ base it too much for me. It is hard to choose a purse without being able to put it on so to speak. It has to “fit”/carry in a way that I like and be comfortable.

I so love the look of the vintage Dooney’s and am looking to purchase one eventually.

Thank-you!

Cheri

Hi Cheri

Really the best way to find what would work for you is to go to a dept store and find a bag that is the perfect size for you and measure it. It is hard for me to know what is comfortable for you as far as fit and carry.
But here is a style that is large, roomy and 3” deep, you can also carry it with a handle.

Happy browsing.

Thank-you Paula! This information is very helpful. I think the shoulder satchel would be the best fit for me. Are the handles actually long enough to wear the purse on the shoulder with the purse tucked under the arm? The handle drop measurement on your website lists 6″. That may be to short for carrying it like that??
Thanks!
Cheri
Hello Cheri,
I just got out 3 of the shoulder satchels and yes they all measure a 6” drop from the inside top of the handle to the zipper. I am a 5’7” average sized woman wearing summer clothes and the bag slips on my shoulder fine and tucks under my arm. However for a larger person or with winter clothes, it might be less quick and easy to slip on and off but it would be secure once it got there !!
That’s what Dooney & Bourke designed these to be – that’s why the handles on the Shoulder Satchels are  longer than their normal satchels which are intended to be carried by hand.

Designed as a coin purse but big enough for a few extras, you can almost use this as a tiny purse, especially since it comes with a handy wrist strap.

Black and British Tan All Weather Leather Large Zipalong Wallet

The Zipalong wallet is the perfect companion for making a mad dash into the store for a quick shop.

The Large Zipalong Wallet

It has several pockets – one on the front with a snap flap. That’s perfect for coins and keys.

Inside there are several slip pockets good for bills and credit cards and a zip pocket for that precious photo of your man boy.

Inside the Large Zipalong Wallet

The Zipalong comes with a shoulder strap with trigger snaps so you can quickly add or remove it.

If you remove it, you can carry the wallet like a clutch or you can slip it on your belt because it has two sturdy leather loops on the back.

710-W52-bkbt-back

Trigger snaps for quick on and off of the shoulder strap. Belt loops.

When I travel, I like to wear this in the airport as it carries all I need including tickets and passport.

This is the large Zipalong, 8 1/2″ x 5 1/2″ and has the model number W52.

Wallets don’t have a sewn in authenticity tag like the handbags do but they do have a sewn in leather plate that says “Dooney & Bourke Made in USA”.
