Chic City Travel
The London Pet Bag, designed and sold by trendy Trixie + Peanut keeps pets comfy and safe in a tote so stylish you’d never guess it holds your pooch! Styled like the latest handbags, the London Bag is completely practical and touts a machine-washable cotton canvas structure, water-resistant interior, and quilted comfort cusion inside. An inner security strap and harness hook, as well as large airy mesh ventilation panels on each end, allow your critter to gaze out without room for escape. Approved for in-cabin air travel, you can score this carrier in one of two trims: sweet cotton candy pink and luxe chocolate brown. ($99)
She’ll be pretty in pink when you carry her in this lovely Paris tote by Sherpa Pet Products. Made of pink tweed and mesh ventilation fabric, this bag holds pets up to 14 pounds. A padded faux fur bottom board keeps your four-legged friend cozy and stable – and two exterior pockets keep your necessities near. Use the photo ID tag that’s included for added protection whether you’re traveling by train or luxury limo. ($90)
Don’t let spur of the moment escapes leave your barker behind. Just pack ‘em up in this fashion-forward carrier – sure to match even the most adventurous personalities. We love this mossy green version of the Bella tote by Creature Couture that’s made of easy-to-clean vinyl with canvas and silver hardware accents. Available in three sizes (small fits pets up to 5 lbs., medium fits pets up to 8 lbs., and large fits pets up to 12 lbs.) there’s room for your canine cargo or finicky kitty. Prices start at $180, but one look at juicy shades like shocking pink and you’ll gladly hand over the credit card. ($180, $210, $230)
