A friend of mine had a great classic, clean leather bag on the other day - reminiscent of old school Gucci and always classic Hermes. I asked where she had gotten it and she shocked the heck out of me when she admitted that it was none other than Dooney & Burke, a throwback to my mother's closet. I personally own three Dooney bags - all of the uber-preppy, hunting variety - but I never thought I'd find exactly the bag I was looking for for under $400! (I am lusting after an Hermes crossbody bag, but what else is new). Behold, the bags of yesteryear, now available online and in stores.
The Dooney & Burke Alto Collection, available online
The Saddle Bag, $350
The Large Shopper, $395
