We all have that piece of clothing or that accessory that makes us feel invincible.  For me, it was my Wonder Woman underoos.  For my sister, it was her "bell" dress -- a dress with a swirly skirt that had a bell pinned to the inside.  What was it for YOU?  And what is it for the star of our feature story?
