    Default question on Dooney & Bourke Venus Bag

    Hi. I am buying my first designer bag and like the Dooney & Bourkes. I saw one: Venus Large Nina in patent black (not patent leather, coated fabric). delete delete..jpg

    My concern is that the shiny surface will either scratch, scuff or dull. I am not very gentle with my bags and don't want to walk on eggshells! I'm debating on this one or perhaps one in another finish that will be more durable.

    Thanks for any advice!

    If you tend to use your bags roughly or without great care, i would steer clear of patent leather bags. As you noted, they scuff very very easily.

    I would also steer clear of fabric bags. you can get them stained. Go for canvas or leather.

    Get one in pebbled grain leather or Dooney's All-weather-leather lines (it takes abuse better)

    I would have to agree with FedUp, you want something that is going to last. If you are not the type of person who wants to baby a bag, find one just as cute that can
    withstand day to day wear so you won't be disappointed and scratches aren't a worry.

    Thank both of you! I thought so. It's like buying a gorgeous white blouse but you are afraid to wear it! :)
