Swatches made from the soft supple kid-skin leather used to hand-craft the tops of our sandals are perfect to have hanging close to your closet so you can match any outfit with your next pair of Bonanno's! Or take it with you when you're out shopping. We also keep you posted on discontinued colors so you can remove colors from your swatch, and when new colors come in we'll send a swatch to add to your ring.

If you don't mind for a moment, I'd like to share just how romantic my husband is ...

I need your help!
I don't know if your screen views my blog the same way mine does, but ever since it was requested that I upgrade to the new and improved blogger, I lost the top of my page. I can no longer read the name of the blog, "Bonanno's or barefoot! It's a lifestyle." Can you? Does anyone out there know how to adjust this so the entire page can be viewed? If so, would you be so kind as give me some helpful hints.

Love the Nautical look. Emma Embroidery in White w/Essex Blue (Blue/Black Navy) w/ Ships Wheel (Gold & Silver). If you're wondering why you haven't heard about or seen Essex, it's because it's not on the color chart. It's so dark it looks black and I didn't think it would show well. You can still order the color if you like it. Plus, a lot of our customers prefer Regal Blue as their true Navy. I couldn't agree more.

What's Vivian wearing:
Lilly Pulitzer "Courtney" Stretch Canvas
Ice Pink $158.00
Vineyard Vines "Simple Tank"
Stephen Bonanno "Grosgrain Ribbon Belt" Pink Multi #5 $30.00
Stephen Bonanno "Suzy" sandals
White w/boat bottom $95.00
(Last season's Lilly Denim Jacket)
You can purchase these items on our website
How it fits:
The Courtney Bermudas have a nice stretch, and sit a little lower on the hips.
I also find this style runs a little smaller
than Lilly's usual sizing which typically run large. I am a size 8 in Lilly, but in these shorts I am a size 10 (my normal size). I love the color, it's a little softer than her usual pinks.
The Simple Tanks feel and fit wonderfully!
The Grosgrain belts are colorful, and light weight, a no brainer to complete this outfit.
The Suzy sandals are one of my new favs ... they are a little stiffer in the beginning, but break-in really nice. Love, Love, Love them! The boat bottoms give a little more cush and have a bit more of a casual look to them. Of course you can get the soles in either leather or boat.
Need Models, So I won't have to :)
I would like to open up "Outfit of the Day" to anyone wanting to play dress up. If interested, pop into the Stuart boutique btw Tues and Thurs or call me @ 772-219-8008 to schedule a time and day. Must be btw sizes 2 and 12 (only because I do not have enough outfits to try on in size zero or 14). For your time we will give you 15% off anything you purchase in the store that day!
