I've never been a big fan of animal prints or Dooney & Bourke, but this bag works for me on so many levels. First off, the fact that the zebra skin is brown and white, makes it look more subtle and realistic. The size is perfect without being overdone. Designers have truly gotten carried away with the oversized trend. Some women look like their carrying travel bags around town. The cell phone pocket and shoulder strap make it ideal for the mom on the go. If you like this bag, may I suggest the red leather trim because it pops against the zebra skin.
