Smarty Giveaway #5: TWO $150 Gift Cards to Stephen Bonanno Sandals!

CSP Mother's Day Giveaway Logo

The Smarty Mother’s Day Swag Week continues on for the fifth day in a row – keep checking in DAILY, Smarties, we’re going right on through Mother’s Day until Monday! Today we present Stephen Bonanno sandals, the original “Palm Beach Sandal”. TWO lucky Smarties will score a $150 gift card to spend on ~ you lucky ducks!

For those of you familiar with Jack Rogers sandals, you must read on about Stephen Bonannos, because once you go Bonanno, you’ll never go back to Jack! These are the original Palm Beach sandals that Jackie O wore back in the day. They are often imitated, never duplicated. I have worn Stephen Bonanno sandals for 20 years now and cannot tell you how excited I am that they here to stay in Charlotte – Nordstrom, Belk, Monkee’s – you seriously need to consider the switch!

Stephen Bonanno Palm Beach Sandal Preppy

Stephen Bonanno sandals are WAY more comfortable than Jack Rogers (there is something about that Jack Rogers plastic heel that just isn’t quite right), they are made with love in my Palm Beach, Florida stomping grounds (not Guatamala, thank you very much!) and the shape of the sole is much more of a natural fit. Kixx Shoes carries two styles for mommies and daughters: the Emma and the Palm Beach. The Emma is a custom-made, monogrammed sandal (so Charlotte, it’s not even funny!) and you can pick out any color combo you can think of (we Smarties like ‘em pink & green). Kixx has an impressive collection of the Palm Beach sandal in mother/daughter sizes in platinum/gold (my personal fave) and gold. You can also custom order any color combo you like from either Kixx or the Stephen Bonanno website. Children’s sizes run size 8-4 and women’s sizes run 6-10 1/2 so all sizes are covered.

Where can I find Stephen Bonanno sandals locally?
