Waving the White Flag @ Winter

I don’t know about you but this winter kicked my ass!

Usually, I’m down for the cold, the layers, the inevitable hibernating and most importantly, the inspiration. There have been times when I get some of best ideas during the winter and I hatch them just in time for the spring.

However, this year I became completely uninspired. With fashion, with writing, with just about everything. I’ve never been so affected by the winter. I still went out, interacted with friends and had fun but my usual burst of creative energy was no where to be found. I think the most to suffer has been this website. I don’t even think I looked at one fashion week collection via style.com.

It’s not that my interest in fashion or art is any different but somehow I feel that my overall vision for stylealchemy has changed. I was beginning to feel horrible about the lack of posts and attention to the site especially when there are some bloggers that are so prolific and never seem to run out of ideas or steam.


Then I realized that it would be better for me to sort out what it is that I wanted from stylealchemy and what I wanted to share with everyone than to sit back and not do anything. I’m still interested in interacting with the community but I’m definitely over posts that don’t have much substance to it. There seems to be an over-saturation of the same images and ideas all over the internet and I want to avoid adding to that noise as much as possible.

I guess what I’m trying to say is that I am going to try a different approach to this and I hope you guys will be up for a little bit of experimentation. I’m also open to any suggestions or comments. Feel free to contact me at stylealchemy@aim.com.

Thankfully, within the last week or so my creative mood has shifted about 180 degrees. The ideas are plentiful and I can’t wait to get started. Which is a good thing because I’ve been real tired of this brooding sh*t!
