have you checked out the shop lately? lots of stuff up for grabs right now, including a huge re-list of anything you might've missed out on!
so today was a HUGE DAY for me. i have my very own STUDIO now!!! crystallized, as of this monday, will now be run from a GORGEOUS 800sf studio in downtown LA, squished in between the american apparel warehouse and the forever 21 warehouse, and right down the street from my current place of employment- unearthen. i mean, it's the garment district, it's full of amazing shit.
this is the craziest leap i've ever taken (other than selling everything i owned and hopping a plane to australia for 5 months) and i could not be happier. i'm actually in shock. anyway, i plan to do what i've always dreamed of doing- designing my own line of clothing. i've been working on it for a few months now, and have seriously lacked inspiration, but now that i have my very own creative space with a breathtaking skyline view of downtown los angeles, i don't think i'll be lacking inspiration any longer. i'm so excited for this new direction in my life, and i can't wait to share what i've been working on. it's going to be a crazy few weeks getting everything set up and going smoothly, but it's a crazy few weeks that i've been looking forward to for SO LONG.
if you read all of that, thanks for humoring me while i use my blog as a public platform to release all of my pent up excitement.
so come monday, i'll have my keys, it will be freshly painted a gleaming shade of white, and i will post some proper photos... 'til then, here's a shitty phone picture of my view.
next investment: a super comfortable couch to put in the studio, as i think i will want to sleep here too.
edit: THANK YOU for all of the kind words and encouragement- i can't tell you how much it means!
