Hi Lynn! I read your post right before leaving to get my hair done. So, I asked my hairdresser what she thought you meant by dressing like Jackie O, the private person. I had to give that alot of thought! Is it a 50s-style look - round sunglasses, clam diggers, shirt dresses, boy leg bathing suits? Just curious! Chelle

Jackie O., while known for her fashion, was actually created in that role by Joe Kennedy. . .when JFK was Senator, she'd show up for parties in flat sandals without stockings, wore clamdiggers to a Democratic women's lunch at a beach club (when they all dressed), etc. I don't believe she was high maintenance at all. She wore the same clothing repeatedly in her public, fashionista persona (i.e. the pink suit was three years old and worn numerous times in the media before Dallas), could do her own hair (it was purposely cut so she could imitate the salon with little assistance when traveling), etc. Jackie was very casual when not in the public eye, but believed in regular fitness, splitting up a day for rest/naps, starting each session of her day with light exercise, and having balanced nutrition. She used tried-and-true methods in her approach to personal style, and knew how to cover up her flaws. She's considered high maintenance for being known for things such as having the bed linens changed daily before her nap (this started when she found other women's personal clothing in her pillow slip---so it was done to make sure no one had been in her bed that day!), and for meticulous use of etiquette. But she eschewed many public appearances, and after leaving the post of First Lady, preferred casual clothing and comfortable styles instead of formal attire. . .

I think that it is okay for a guy t o require that if he holds himself to the same standards. My kids and I live an active lifestyle so it would be a requirement for me to have a guy who can keep up with that lifestyle. I love to take care of myself but I think that if my husband required that of me without compromise that he should do the same. It goes both ways. We women also like a man who takes care of himself and tries his best to be healthy.

I do. . . and I was more casual for a long time, in keeping with business standards here in the Midwest, but I had to break myself of the habit (when I was mobilized, we were allowed to wear business dress civilian clothing with a displayed ID IF we needed to maintain/clean/ uniforms, so I adopted that as my work standard. Then I left state government and jeans were all the rage. . . recently, I re-discovered the need for men to be professionally dressed, and still be real (instead of these vapid metrosexuals, etc.). I hold myself to the same standards. And quite honestly, for those who questioned wants vs. needs. . . I'm not happy with a woman who doesn't dress right for the occasion and the time, and isn't confident in herself and poised; I find myself disappointed, sad, and tending to be critical. . . so, a certain persona IS a need.

Thanks, Lynn! I appreciate the explanation - very interesting. I've been wanting to read more about JFK; I guess I'll have to include Jackie O in that, too. I hope you find your own Jackie O! wink Chelle

Agreed. Glad I am not the only guy on here with that opinion.
