The hashtag started as a ‘tongue in cheek’ reference to the fact that I am considered by many to be too old to dress in some of my favourite clothes.
As you may know, almost every day I proudly wear my 3 Stripes (Adidas).
In the Military, the higher the rank, the more stripes are worn.
I regularly post pictures on my instagram @saramaijewels which are bare-faced, untouched and truly show my face. My clothes reveal what is going on in my head.
It is not a mask. I am not a puppet.
In the meantime, I will continue Flying the Flag(s).
I hope you enjoy.
I first met Magician, Mal Cross, by Lynn Dell’s Off Broadway Boutique on the Upper West Side. He is one of the snappiest dressers I have ever seen. He also has a wonderful sense of humor. Yesterday I ran into him again near 72nd street and he asked how Lynn was doing. I told him she was recovering from a cold but doing fine and he announced with a smile, ” Lynn Cohen and I never die!” I hope to have even half of Mal’s energy and vitality some day.
