“Keep your heels, head & standards high”

"Keep your heels, head & standards high” is a saying that has been printed on many images. “Preach it skeeter RT @cindyyloohoo: Keep your heels, your head and your standards high” was posted on Twitter on February 15, 2011.

“Keep your heels, head, and standards high - Coco Chanel” was posted on Twitter on May 2, 2011. There is no evidence that French fashion designer and businesswoman Coco Chanel (1883-1971) ever said this—first cited 40 years after her death.

7 September 2013, The News Leader (Staunton, VA), “My own personal cliche” by Vincent Bailey:
And although never skipping sunscreen and always standing up straight is most certainly involved ("keep your heels, chin and standards high"), so is slightly less vapid advice.
