Dooney & Bourke Spicy Sac | Quilted Yellow Canvas Bucket Bag with Tan Leather Trim

Posted on: Nov 7

Dooney & Bourke Spicy SacBright yellow canvas brings some zing to this Spicy Sac from Dooney & Bourke.

This cheery fabric helps make this traditional bucket style bag seem much more interesting. Unfortunately it's let down though by its leather trim. While the cowhide is luxurious, its color is really insipid. The vibrant yellow deserved a much stronger partner, perhaps a chocolate brown or even a navy blue. The tassels on the zips also seem a bit unnecessary, but they don't offend me as much as that bland leather. Who would have thought canvas would outshine the more luxurious skin?

This Sac is well designed though, with plenty of space for everything you'll need on any outing. The front pocket gives us space for stashing the items we need on hand, while the generous main compartment takes care of the rest. I also appreciate the metal feet, which will protect the base from the ravages of time. The handle is a shade too short for my liking, but it's also not completely impractical.

This is a sweet little purse, and one that's relatively affordable at $228. However I can't help thinking about the ways it could have been better. There's a place for sweet, but this handbag had the potential to be something much greater.
