"If you press me to say why I loved him, I can say no more than because he was he, and I was I" -- Michel de Montaigne

How to be Smarter: Be curious and interested in other people, without being nosy about their lives. If they want to tell you, they will. And if they don't want to tell you, they won't, regardless of how much prodding you do. How to be Prettier: Love this dress--on sale!-- with this belt and these wedges.

How to be (less) Awkward: No matter how pretty the outfit is, if your undergarments are inappropriate or ill-fitting, the outfit is wrong. And no matter how pretty you are on the outside, if your insides don't match, you're doing something wrong.
