Uncovering a slump...

I finally felt creative this week!

Those who are close to me know that I've been feeling really "blah" and uninspired for the past few months. At first I couldn't figure out what was causing it, but then I decided to write it all down and that helped me sort it out. I came up with these reasons:

1. I'm still getting used to living in a snow kingdom (a.k.a. Montreal). I feel like I'm stuck inside a lot of the time and it's kind of depressing. Even going for a walk in the neighborhood becomes a huge ordeal. I've always been really low maintenence, like, I just throw something on and go, so getting dressed in a bazillion layers is too much work for a leisurely walk. Then by the time I'm finally dressed I don't even feel like going anymore. Man, I'm so spoiled.

2. I'm oversewing. That definitely kills my creativity. I really really want to hire a sewer on a permanent basis this year.

3. I felt "stuck" with my clothing line. I didn't have any real goals for it before, because I was happy making enough to make ends meet. I guess not having goals will make anyone feel uninspired. It was right at that time because I was still adjusting to living in Canada, but now I'm ready!

I'm feeling sooo motivated and all I have to do is just make sure this feeling sticks for a while. YAYYY.


  1. So glad that you've joined the blog-o-dome! And that first dress looks amazing!!

  2. Hey hun


    I suggest if you ever want to get into the studio with your clothes that you make a profile on model mayhem and post a casting call to collaborate with photographers and models... Also searching and approaching people can bring results too... It's really helped me...

  3. Glad you decided to start a blog! Slumps are normal - you're only human! :) Lookin' forward to reading your blog posts. Take care.

  4. Supayana, especially LOVE the top dress! Wow! I'd Love to have a dress like that...and paired with the fuschia tights, it's Purrrrfect! So Sweet! Keep it up dear =)

  5. Hey Lady! You're not the only one feeling those slumpms once in a while! I have been feeling the same, but I'm pushing myself everyday to keep at it. It takes time to adjust to big moves...
    I think you're on to something great with your new stuff, it looks beautiful!
