For the Fashion Divas

Time for some fun and fashionable items!

Check out this super-cute and fun pet carrier from JCLA-Jeanne Chinn, Los Angeles. The Rescue Me Tote multifunctions as a tote, a diaper bag or a gym bag for you. Made of canvas, the tote comes in four different dogs: a cute generic dog called Doggie Style, I Love New Yorkie, Te Quiero Chihuahua and Foxy Pom--all with bling collars.

You have a choice of natural, pale pink or red … and the feet are little gold-tone paws. What else could you wish for? If you want to personalize your bag, you can have it embroidered for an additional fee with your pet’s name or personalized phrase.

Each tote comes with two versatile snap-in interior liners. Don’t feel like leopard? Lining soiled? Your pup runs hot? Just snap out the micro-mink liner, which by the way is so snuggly soft, and snap in your second liner, a solid black cotton material. For a cushy place for your pet to curl up, for a minimal price you can also buy a small soft pad to place under the liner inside.

A really nice perk is that the manufacturer donates a portion of its profits for each Rescue Me Tote sold to animal rescue organizations across the United States.

Per the company’s owner, several celebrities, including Sharon and Kelly Osborne, carry their pooches around in one of these. And the bag was featured in the movie "Beverly Hills Chihuahua.” These bags were a hit at the show and loved by all my customers.

To compliment the bags, JCLA sells cute unique Chihuahua purse hangers/key chains, some with mirrors. Unique design. A center picture (some backed with mirrors) features a silver bezel-like border, and some include bling, depending on the model. This border opens up and becomes a purse hanger to suspend your carrier or purse from a table. There is also a key ring and a claw clasp to hook onto your bag.

How about a handmade super-cute hair bow by Bows By Germaine to accessorize your pet while you tote it around town? In 2006, Germaine discovered her passion for bows after creating beautiful accessories for her beloved pup. She would spend endless evenings with spools of ribbon, creating a collection of hair ornaments so her dog could strut her stuff.

Everyone loved them and wanted her bows for their own dogs! The overwhelming response led her to follow her passion and live her dream. Bows By Germaine was created and is still going strong for the past six years.

Each bow is crafted with loving care. Personally hand-sewn with dual layers of ribbon to retain its structure and appearance, they are attached to a quality 30 mm French barrette to secure to your pet’s hair. There is quite an assortment to choose from, including prints, ginghams, flowers, holiday, sports and even a crystal Mickey Mouse. Handmade in the USA, the bows have been featured in upscale boutiques around the world and shows, including Pet Fashion Week in New York City.

As always, feel free to contact me with any questions or if you have information you would like to share. Until next time.
