As Alice started her search, she realized she had a la...

When was the last time you were told you looked like someone else? Depending on the person in question, you were elated, insulted, or ambivalent. Bottom line, everyone likes looking attractive, being their own person, or being compared with someone thought to be tops in that field of comparison.
Compliments are not easy to come by, especially in an average environment. Those who care about the impression they make on others will go out of their way to ensure they look attractive in what they wear, applying makeup, haircuts, and personal health and hygiene.
