Types Of Women

I’ve learned there are two types of women in this world, some are mermaids, others are sirens. Oftentimes people get confused, believing them to be one in the same, but that couldn’t be further from the truth. Being able to tell the difference is crucial.

A Tale Of Two Sisters is a Netflix documentary, chronicling the sibling rivalry/mutual adoration between Jackie Onassis and Lee Radziwill. When profiling the first lady’s ascent it was made abundantly clear, without her President John F. Kennedy would not have won. While campaigning it was Jackie’s charm that stole the hearts of millions; multilingual and dressed to the nines Jackie could relate to anyone. Receiving this information caused me to further pontificate on the importance of a woman. Not in an archaic sense of sexism, as if we’re objects, but from my viewpoint to determine who I aspired to be. Even stay at home wives appreciate, or depreciate the quality of one’s life. Jackie O, like BeyoncĂ© Michelle Obama, Lady Di…was a mermaid.

Mermaids are beautiful lady creatures who manifest the divine for themselves, as well as their partners. They’re full packages that bring endless blessings no matter the role. One half of a proper power couple. Mermaids are not only alluring, but winsome: intelligent, classy, brave and outspoken.

Sirens once depicted as half bird, half woman in ancient times, have morphed into mermaid like critters. They appear gorgeous and talented, luring one in with song, but it’s all a facade. Up close they are ghastly, fating their admirers to crash. They drain energy, like light going into a black hole.

A simple way to tell the difference is to look at whether your life has gotten better, or worse with them in it. Which one are you? Which one are you partnered with? Can you think of modern day mermaids and sirens? Photo: Clara Berry Instagram

Style With Dorit Kemsley

Pure glamour. Being loyal to Lisa Vanderpump has left me side eyeing all who have betrayed her, but Dorit has grown on me this season. She’s matured out of the mean girl bunch, but still brings her fair share of drama. Most importantly she’s successfully usurped Erika Jayne as the queen of housewives glam. Jayne started it, but Dorit took that crown off her frosted blonde head and plopped it right onto hers. Bitch is SERVING LOOKS, from intricate hairstyles to curated shoes. A mix between streetwear chic and vintage ladies like Lee Radziwell. Think twice before meeting up with her, because dressing down is pearl lined hair and full Chanel. Let’s talk about the conscious effort in look six. The blue with white shoe straps that play up the white print on the blouse, pants and hair tie. Subtle sophistication. She’s giving me white Thelma from Good Times vibes with that one. Which look is your fave? Via: Dorit Kemsley’s instagram

Style With Lee Radziwill

“I can’t think of any woman more feminine than Lee Radziwill, not even Audrey Hepburn.” Truman Capote said of the socialite. The brilliant, chic baby sister of Jackie-O; despite their competitive relationship Lee styled her sister on numerous occasions.

The pisces Princess, who got her last name after marrying Polish Prince Stanislaw Albrecht Radziwill, had a style that was minimal, yet embellished. A plain white gown covered by an ornamental jacket, a red dress made sophisticated by the placement of straps across her chest, closed with a decorative brooch. She was balanced glamour, refined, chic and always memorable.

Even black leather jackets were stand outs one: a fur color and a cinched waist, the other given depth with a snakeskin texture. They just don’t make them like they use to. Her outfits are put together so consciously it radiates her intelligence. What does your style say about you?
