... je ne sais quoi.

{click on the image for an intimate close up}

Literately translated this french phrase means "I don't know what".  It's that certain intangible something that is difficult to describe in words. It comes from within and is often sought out and imitated, but rarely captured outside of the original that inspired it. Audrey had it from the nape of her neck to her iconic ballet flats. Paul and Joanne had it subtly on the screen, but it simply sizzled when they were captured together. Marilyn had it in her quite unguarded moments, and Miss Ella had it in each perfect note that she reached on the scale. It can be in the turn of a hem, the whiff of a certain perfume, or the sparkle of the perfect gem. Journey into the image above for a bit of that "je ne sais quoi" ,than leave me a note and tell me what has that certain something for you.
