A Fab Retrospective

"One summer the Radziwills rented a villa in Italy and the then First Lady came to visit for awhile. Here the two sisters casually sunbathe, both smoking cigarettes. Jackie was a chain smoker, something she tried desperately to hide from the public. I’ve often wondered if her problems giving birth to children (the miscarriages and stillbirths) were somehow related to her smoking. What a different era it was back then! Imagine today a First Lady summering in Italy without her husband. "- cote de texas
It's been four days since Cote De Texas posted this fabulous retrospective on Caroline Lee Bouvier Canfield Radziwill Ross aka "Lee". I can't get it out of my head. The photos are absolutely beautiful and elegant. This post is a true treasure. Check it out here if you haven't yet!
