Time to take a break!

Hello fellow readers! After many hours of contemplation about myself, what i want out of my life and what i want to do with my life ive come to some really interesting and exciting conclusions. I know I want to design but i cant get over how annoyed and bombarded i feel by media, pop culture. I dont want to sound all arty fartsy but while thinking things over with a friend we came to agree on the fact that we are ridiculously dependent on mass media and pop culture. So dependent, that when we're trying to brew up some form of creative ideas we were in reality recycling everything we've seen in magazines, blogs, tv, for the past few years. In response to this I've come to the conclusion that ill be taking a break as best as possible from an excess of fashion media (that includes me posting on this blog! ). It'll be a breath of fresh air and i think ill discover what exactly this creative seed inside me is capable of growing into without a bunch of commercial influences. It will be interesting to see how all of this affects me, and i know its well needed. As irritated as i feel already knowing i wont be checking up on all of the blogs i follow or the fashion sites i frequent, i know that ill  honestly discover something about myself and around me, instead of what some CEO of a company wants me to feel about myself and what's around me( if that makes sense). So ill see you all in a month! My friend and i will be posting our reflections on how all of this goes on another blog here feel free to follow it you  like.

Theyskens Theory///

I had never heard or Theyskens Theory but I came across their SS2011 collection and im seriously loving every single thing I see! The shapes, the fit, the colors...its everything I love and would want for myself! I think I looked through the photos of the show about 10 times. I am officially a huge fan of Theyskens Theory and I cant wait to see more for them in the future!
