All fashionistas need a few statement bags to mix in with their collection of everyday purses. Some days you want to go basic black, but on others, it’s great to have a little more fun with your accessories. We spotted a standout designer cross-body that will help you step up your accessory game, and the pup-inspired design is too doggone cute!
This Ted Baker London Barkley Dog Leather Cross-Body Bag is such an adorable grab thanks to a front flap designed to take on the sweet face of a canine. Its black and white contrast is made even more playful with gold hardware carefully placed to mimic a pooch’s nose and the place where its whiskers would be. A slight upturn near the top on each side is meant to look like dog ears.
See it: Get the Ted Baker London Barkley Dog Leather Cross-Body Bag for $97.49 at Nordstrom, which is 50 percent off the original $195 tag. Also available at Bloomingdale’s for $146.25 and at Zappos for $195!
As darling as this design is, it’s also pretty practical. We love that the gold chain makes the Barkley fall exactly at the right place so you can easily move around with it on your shoulder. A leather band is also conveniently placed at the top of the chain so you do not have to worry about the metal causing any discomfort or creating snags in your clothes.
If the bag isn’t pretty enough, it’s also got a pink interior for an extra festive touch.
If you’re swooning over the idea of a dog-inspired cross-body, but aren’t into the black and white contrast, then we also spotted this beautiful rose gold version of the Barkley bag. The metallic style never goes out of season and gives the pup’s face an extra touch of glamour.
Please note that the rose gold bag is available at Nordstrom, despite the photo not showing. Simply click on the rose gold color option in the circle that reads “no image” and it will drop the style into your cart. One shopper purchased the purse in rose gold and shared that their bag looks like “classic elegance.”
