Bon Voyage... yeah, "Good Trip," to no where! This was clearly a day of dreaming. When I do finally get a chance to cruise on over to the beach, I WILL BE packing my new favorite little Anchor Wristlet, by Hayden Reis.

Raise awareness and funding for some of our world’s most complex issues and keep your feet fashionable with 'BANGS Shoes'.
Fellow Kappa Kappa Gamma sorority sister, Hannah Davis, is the Founder of this amazing organization.
Hannah's story began when she taught English in China's eastern Jiangsu Province after graduating from Clemson in 2009. Hannah noticed olive green, army-style shoes worn by thousands of construction and field workers across China, and her ideas started flowing...
Inspired by the utilitarian style of these canvas Chinese shoes, Hannah decided to create a brand that would not only offer high-quality, funky shoes, but also connect people to an ideology she felt passionate about. Combining philanthropy with business to form a social enterprise, Hannah developed a stylish shoe with each color representing a different cause and nonprofit organization. A portion of the profits made from each pair of shoes is invested in its nonprofit partner.
