Brrr, can you feel that nip in the air? I know North can so I want my peppy, preppy pup to take advantage of furry Fall fashions – cooler colors and warm knits. This season's Crewmutts (from J. Crew) line now offers some great blue totes, textured sweaters, and darker madras styles. You may recall their summery madras of seasons past, but the latest versions also have a removable sherpa lining for additional warm cozies heading straight into Winter.
Fall is my favorite time of year, mostly due to the great weather, but it's really the season's fashions that get me all a twitter! I'm getting set for the weather change in my wardrobe, so it's only natural that I get North all caught up, too – he's one hip hound if I do say so myself! If your pet can still fit in a carrier, you're going to fall in love with Ella Dish's new line of bags. These Ella Carriers ($165) are rugged enough not to get dirty after one use, and they come with the brand's signature nylon webbing. Since accessorizing is key to making a complete wardrobe, these cases will surely go with all your autumnal updates – sounds like another Fall must have to me!
At first glance, I thought this carrier was waaaay to big to fit as any airplane carryon, but I was wrong! This Jet Setter ($170 and up) rolls upright and, when laid on the side, slides right under the seat in front of you. Meant for pets up to 15 pounds, this bag weighs only about three pounds with the wheels removed. It comes in a rainbow of colors (I like the camo and titanium best), materials like rugged canvas and ballistic nylon, and offers lots of ventilation for your lil guy – there's even enough pockets to serve as your personal item, too. What's more is that it easily straps into a seatbelt for a safe trip to the airport for your high-flying pets. . . it's time for takeoff!
I love to see celebs getting snuggly with their pooches, so how delighted was I to catch this glimpse of Susan Sarandon and her lil Maltese?! Even so, I'm less pleased to witness the furry-pal-inside-purse phenom later that night.
Granted, the two were attending Longchamp's 60th Anniversary celebration in NYC, so the Legende Satchel was a must-have, but where's a proper tote for her precious pet, Penny? Next time, hopefully she'll carry that metallic trend with an appropriate luxe, gold (dog) bag like these below.
Even though I've seen these in stores in the past, I would definitely do a double take if I spotted one of these girls on the street. Though there are many variations of this
baby doggy carrier, products like the Legs Out Front Pet Carrier ($27.50 and up) are designed to promote bonding. A lot of bonding. As much as LilSugar loves those slings to snuggle her babe, I don't think I'm ready to tote my pup legs out – are you?
When I spotted this classy camel-colored bag under the arm of Antonio Sabato at the 7th annual Nuts for Mutts Dog Show and Pet Fair to benefit New Leash on Life, I made it my morning mission to locate a similar faux ostrich bag. Even though Antonio's lucky pooch gets a mock ostrich carrier, little did I know that my search for it would lead me to an authentic ostrich pet carrier . . . with an equally shocking price tag. Can you guess how much that bag costs? Don't worry, there's a picture included next to the question below.Take the Quiz
Last week I asked all you savvy shoppers and Internet researchers out there to come PetMarking with me on a collar matching mission to help my pal LilPeaPod find a cute collar to match the chic carrier she's bought for her brand-new puppy. I think this denim studded collar ($23) petmarked by wren would look super cute on the lil stud – he'd be handsome and a wee bit punky, too!
If you need to tote your pal around town this new bag will surely get you both noticed! Looking much more "purse-like" than the already popular Louis Vuitton Sac Chien we see with celebripups like Daisy and Maui, the Sac Baxter comes with a monogram canvas leash with clasp and removable cushion to keep your pet extra safe and snuggly – and an exterior pocket for all your essentials. What surprised me the most is that this carrier comes in two sizes – the smaller Monogram Canvas Sac Baxter PM ($1,410) and a larger Monogram Canvas Sac Baxter GM ($1,520) that can carry a pet weighing up to 44 pounds. I think I'd need to carry that dog with both arms!
Even though Wookie wasn't our puppy of the year, I still love this cutie pooch. The dog is very well traveled, and just left LAX yesterday on a jet airliner with Vanessa Minnillo. This isn't the first time we've seen the pup, but how much do we really know? Find out (and see more pictures!) in this quiz.Take the Quiz
