If a picture is worth a thousand words, then security officer Vickie Gould, 59, really had a lot to say with her look. "I need a little happiness right now because I just got discharged from my job," she said. "Emojis are just part of me; they mean being happy, different, and noticeable. I'm just a different person—I dare to be different. My style is unpredictable and nobody does it like me."

Yet Gould's outfits do seem to have one thing in common: her penchant for meticulously matching accessories. "I am the best coordinator. I can just go into a store and find something that goes with what I already have. It just comes to me." After stating this, Gould gleefully pulled her emoji gloves and emoji folder from her emoji backpack, like they were some kind of secret weapon. "I've got gadgets," she grinned. "Fashion helps me connect with people. Through my outfits I'm always giving that little token of love."  v
