Forgotten Moment Of Weakness

A few days ago a second box from our beloved Bonanno's arrived. I ordered two pairs of shoes a while back- one pair for me and one pair as a very belated wedding gift for Florida (the wedding was last December....so yeah....belated is an understatement. But I just had THE HARDEST time deciding on a color combo....). The pair I ordered for myself arrived about a week ahead of the gift pair. But imagine my surprise when I opened the second box to see not one, but two boxes within. Did they make a mistake and send me someone else's shoes? Was the second box empty? Oh, none of the above girls. Yours truly had a long forgotten moment of weakness when ordering her shoes months ago. I didn't order one pair for myself....I ordered TWO! And I blame y'all, my dearest blogger friends! I didn't even know about Bonannos before reading blogs two years ago. Now I am addicted. It's all your fault! You're a bunch of preppy footwear pushers. I'll just add that to my Promises agenda when I check in for my many other addictions such as fabric and ribbon and all things Lilly. The middle pair is the gift- I think she is going to love them- they are chocolate brown with a tan whipstich. The pink/white pair were the "surprise" pair. But the bronze pair are hands down my favorite! Even more than my silver pair (not pictured). Just look at that monogrammed shoe loveliness....I love it!

Wonderful, comfortable shoes! If you really want to see the color combos before you order, order the swatches that they sell. I did and it makes it so easy to match to outfits, etc.

These sandals are super cute.
Love that you got a surprise - It reminds me of finding a $20.00 bill when cleaning my dresser drawers last week. Kinda felt like I had won the lotto!!

OK I can not believe I have not ever seen these sandals before. They are way cute! Thank God for unexpected blessings! ;)

Love the shoes and I adore your blog!! I started from the beginning and am working my way forward-thus why I am commenting on a post from 2 years ago!! I wanted to ask about Bonanno sandals. How do you know which size to order? I've been to their website and there are so many different size combinations-tops and bottoms-and I'm afraid I'll order the wrong size and be stuck with a pair of shoes I can't wear! Any suggestions? Thanks so much!

I bought a pair of Bonannos while they were having their sale. The light blue Palm Beach with white whip stitching. Guess what? I do not like them at all. I thought I would love them, but nope. I have flat feet and these are NOT GOOD for that foot problem. I wore them for 3 hours and my feet felt like they were in them for 10. I'm gonna sell them on eBay.
