Southern Living - April 2011

We were SO excited to see La Plates featured in the most recent Southern Living Magazine. We are big fans of the mag and the article we appeared in was right up our alley. From the ham buns on the cover - delish:
To the theme of the page, "porching" with our Monogrammed Silverware Caddy:
Personally, I've been a long-time porching fan. From counting cars with my Papaw as a 3 year old, to my Miami University (Ohio) days; you can't beat hanging on a porch swing with family and friends:


Spring Break 2011

Somehow the stars aligned and brought 5 "old" friends together. I met two of these besties in pre-school...one at summer camp...the other in brown Nikes in the 4th grade. How we all found a weekend that worked to head to Florida is a minor miracle. Trying to get them to pose for a La Plates BASKET PLATE photo proved to be the weekend challenge.
I finally removed the "challenge" from the photos and simply let the plates, the shells and the vino be at peace - thanks for the laughs old friends!
Safe travels to those of you with upcoming trips - Spring Break 2011, wohoo!!

Sizing Info for Stephen Bonanno Sandals:
If you're not sure of your sizing and need a little guidance keep this in mind. We are a true B width - not narrow, not wide. Tho the following process to figuring out your size is helpful, it is by no means a guaranteed method to a perfect fit. The general rule is "APPROX" 1/8" between half sizes and 1/4" between full sizes. Due to the hand-crafted nature of our sandals, there can be slight variations in the length and width.
