I am 50 years old and loving it! I have a son at Parsons and have been exploring New York for the past three years while he has been in school. I am a midwestern girl at heart but am being wooed by the Big Apple. I went to the fall Mercedes-Benz fashion week with my son and my world changed! I am a runway junkie! I don't live in designer clothes, but when I do buy them I buy smart. My mother-in-law was a model in the 1940s and came from a very poor Italian family and had to model because it was the only work she could get. She taught me it is better to own one well-made garment than a closet full of poorly made clothes. Usually I wear jeans, a T-shirt, a blazer and boots. She taught me how to wear a pair of Levi's with a Chanel jacket, how to walk in well-made Italian stilettos. Because of her I now buy quality, see age as only a number, understand that style is a mind-set (my mind-set). I set my own trends, walk my own runway every day, and I want my son to learn from me what I learned from her. You don't have to be rich to have style, style comes from within. I want to be the face of 5F because Bergdorf embodies all the individuality of how I see myself: Your store has something for everyone's personal style. I want my son to say that "my Mom is the Face of 5F" and be proud of his mama. Thanks for considering me!
