I think everyone suspected that I would choose the Hello Kitty challenge but the Gone With The Window challenge really resonated with me. As a child growing up in the 80’s, I would always watch old reruns of Bewitched, I Dream Of Jeanie etc. However a TV commercial came one advertising the Best Of Carol Burnett and that is when I saw her saunter in with a pair of curtains and a curtain rod! I was so young but that image and knowing how comedic one can make pop culture was something I learned that day.
 
What I wanted to do was the exact opposite. Take something from my childhood and do the exact opposite. I started channeling my inner NYC 5th Ave old money ladies as I have worked at a spa in that area and saw a whole other world filled with money, privilege and excess. I would see these ladies always in sunglasses, always with exaggerated eyeliner and a full Chanel suit. It’s so dressed up and together that in a way it is THIER drag. I love the juxtaposition of paying $20 for 4 panels of curtain and transforming it into something luxurious!
