That's exactly what happened to Sherry Bruff of Boulder.
Sherry is proud to say she is celebrating this accomplishment at the age of 65. She entered a modeling contest on Facebook for Eileen Fisher Clothing.
"I got on Facebook not too long ago, basically to keep tabs on my 17-year-old daughter and Eileen Fisher - who is my favorite clothing designer - was running a contest over the holidays. And so for fun, I entered. We had to write a 'little ditty' about why we liked to wear Eileen Fisher, and three people [in the nation] were chosen, and I was one of those three," Bruff said.
Not only did Bruff get chosen to model, she also won some great prices and incentives.
"I got to stay in the Carlton Hotel in New York City - which was a luxurious spot. We went shopping in the store and were handed a $2,500 gift certificate, and then we had a personal shopper that came to help us pick out clothes," Bruff said.
What is her secret to beauty you might ask?
"Well, I live in Colorado," is all she had to say at first. But she continued with "It really is a matter of eating good food and just taking good care of yourself."
They will be posting the results of the facebook contest on March 19. Sherry's video will go live on Facebook beginning on April 4. You can find all of her pictures on facebook.com/eileenfisherny.
