Hi Pet People! I have to tell you about a great company out of Los Angeles that marries my two favorite things helping animals and fashion! Did you know the new IT bag is actually a pet carrier bag?
Starlets from Kelly Osbourne to Annalynne McCord rave over their JCLA pet carrier bags.
JCLA Boutique, a company started by the lovely actress Jeanne Chinn, designs stylish bags to help transport your pet or if you have small dog envy, her bags are big enough for a day at the office. The brand started when Jeanne purchased a fashionable bag with a feline on it.
When she used the bag, people would stop her everywhere she went and ask her where she got it. And so an idea was born.
Since then, Jeanne has been inspired to create a line of bags that was both fashionable and practical when carrying your pet. Eventually Jeanne started her own company to make bags such as these, and the brand was launched with the creation of “Rescue Me” totes last year.
Her passion for animals has encouraged her to donate 10% profits to animal rescue organizations. She has donated to organizations such as the American Humane Association, Lifeline 4 Paws, Kitt Crusaders, and many more.
“I hope that my designs remind people about why they love their pets,” Jeanne says about her company. And who wouldn’t drool over this unique and sturdy bags?
A recent new bag added around the holidays is the Bond Girl Smuggler Bag. Smuggle your cutie that is 10 lbs. and under in this must have bag. Swing by www.jclaboutique.com for your mother’s day shopping needs and don’t forget to treat yourself!
I have my eye on this red one- do you think my pets (Simon, Nigel and Nola) will surprise me?
Stephanie Krol can be best described as a mixed breed of a newshound and publicist in the pet industry. She has the ability to sniff out the latest lifestyle trends when it comes to pets. As a proud “pet parent” of three rescues Nigel (cat), Simon (dog) and recent addition of Nola (cat). Stephanie spreads the word of animal welfare every chance she gets.
