My Style Icon #1 Slim Keith

"God blessed me with a happy spirit and many other gifts. What I was not blessed with I went out and got. Sometimes the price was too high, but I've never been much of a bargain hunter."

Words to live by from Slim Keith. Nancy "Slim" Gross Hawks Hayword Keith, Lady Keith (July 1917 - April 1990) was born in Salinas, California.  Keith was a New York socialite and fashion icon during the 50's and 60's. She epitomized elegance, grace, poise and was the quintessential American jet setter. Some women are born into their fortunes, others earn them the old fashion way: they marry them. Slim Keith fell into the latter category. I guess when you're from Salinas you've got to do something!
