Miss A Columnist

Hannah Walker is a senior at Georgetown University, majoring in English and minoring in Japanese. This mostly means she can justify spending a lot of money on books and sushi. She grew up in New Jersey, which has instilled in her a love of Bruce Springsteen, strong opinions about pizza quality, and a complete inability to pump her own gas. A devotee of stories in all forms, she is an avid reader, tv- and movie-watcher, and playgoer. Hannah especially loves the arts in DC, from Artomatic to Opera at the Kennedy Center to street art in Adams Morgan. Hannah is happy to talk at length about any new books or movies, and jumps at any opportunity to cover cultural events. If you have a Washington, DC charity or cultural event, restaurant, boutique, spa, or salon you would like covered on Miss A, please contact Hannah at hannahrtwalker@gmail.com.

Stunning Pink Dana Davis Shoes For Breast And Ovarian Cancer Support

There’s something about Allie. She’s gorgeous, she’s fun, and she is so ready to have a good time. But she’s more than just a pretty face; she also supports outreach efforts to women about breast and ovarian health. Not only that, but she is designed with built-in insoles specifically engineered for comfort.

Confused? Don’t be. Allie is a fabulously pink satin pump created by shoe designer Dana Davis to mark this October’s Breast Cancer Awareness Month. From September 1 through November 1, a portion of the sales from Allie and the wonderfully classic (but no less pink) Kristen loafer at www.danadavis.com go towards Bright Pink, an organization dedicated towards educating and supporting young women who are at risk for breast and ovarian cancer.

According to Bright Pink, their mission is clear: “We arm young women with knowledge, options and a great attitude, and offer companionship and empathy during their journey. We empower them to take control of their breast and ovarian health and in turn, grant them the freedom and peace of mind to live a beautiful and fulfilling life.” Through a host of frank, conversational, and friendly articles Bright Pink educates readers on such topics as prevention and early detection, assessing your risk, and the legal and employment issues that can accompany breast and ovarian cancer.

Bright Pink doesn’t provide medical advice, but presents their information in a way that’s easy to understand and friendly, more like talking to a girlfriend than to a doctor. Which is a big part of Bright Pink’s mission: not only to educate, but to provide support and a community, so that those battling breast and ovarian cancer don’t have to feel that they’re battling it alone. Dana Davis has said that Dana Davis Shoes is “thrilled to be in support of Bright Pink and greatly admire their mission to empower young women with information on the importance of breast and ovarian health.”

Gracing red carpets and fashion mags on the feet of such celebrities as Christina Hendricks, Penelope Cruz, Frieda Pinto, and Jane Fonda (not to mention Miss A herself), Dana Davis shoes come in a wide variety of fabulous and fashionable styles. They are also most notably designed to be as comfortable as they are beautiful. Each style of shoe is engineered by a team of foot and ankle surgeons, podiatrists and pedorthists to create a fantastically comfortable (and considerably high-tech) shoe. With Allie and Kristen, not only do you get high comfort as well as high fashion, you also get the satisfaction of helping out a wonderful organization contributing to efforts for women’s health and happiness.

Find your pair of Allies or Kristens at Dana Davis Shoes online.
