What's Inside Your Cookie Counts

Yesterday, after leaving lunch at an Asian restaruant with some dear friends I was given the coustomary fortune cookie. I have always had the fortune of pretty well advising fortune cookies and this one was no different. It said:
Of all the things that you wear, the most important fashion is your expression.

How many times have you seen someone that no matter what they're wearing has the worst expression or attitude? They could be dressed to the nines or styled to perfection but still find something to be pissed at the world about. I've always held that the best accessory is a smile--and maybe this is what that fortune cookie was trying to say.

One of my favorite TV shows is Ugly Betty. Although now off the air the show's protaganist Betty Suarez (played by America Ferrera) is by no means a conventional beauty. Her clothes never match, she's got braces, glasses, and a forrest of frizzy hair. But what she got that most of her glamourous fashion magazine co-workers don't? Inner beauty.
