It's Inspiration Monday!
When the ladies of Two Birds Boutique chose an outfit to inspire a personal look.  
Here's my version.
My black netted overlay is thrifted.
Notice my guy's reflection in the window on the left. ;)

..."You know one me.
Just like I know one you.
 But you can't know every me...
 And I can't know every you"...
Every You, Every Me by David Levithan

Today's outfit inspiration is:
Eva Mendes
To see what others wore look here .

...If you zoom close-if you really get close to someone,
if you get really close to yourself-

then you lose the other person, you lose yourself entirely. You get so close you can't see anything anymore...
Every You, Every Me by David Levithan

Some of you have asked to see my tattoo.
That's why my blouse is pulled like that.

...Instead I thought of the word profile and what a weird double meaning. it had. 

We say we're looking at a person's profile online, or say a newspaper is writing,
 a profile on someone,

and we assume it's the whole them we're seeing.
But when a photographer takes a picture of a profile, you're only seeing half the face...

Every You, Every Me by David Levithan was like every picture brought out a slight variation. I wondered if it was just because it was a different moment, 

or maybe each photographer brought out a different you -you could not be who you were without  taking into account who was watching...Every You, Every Me by David Levithan
