laurenconrad_responds_clothinglabelhiatus.jpgWhen I heard that Lauren Conrad's clothing label had been put on hiatus this week, I was hardly surprised. But I did wonder - what else was she planning to do after she leaves The Hills, write a tell-all memoir outing Speidi as aliens? Open her own Pinkberry?

Now L.C. has spoken out about reports that her label has been discontinued by blogging about it, how else?

"A few days ago a statement was released to the showrooms that carry my clothing line. It asked them to let the stores know that I was planning to take a couple seasons off from my line so that I could make some changes that I felt were necessary. As a result, a lot of people were under the impression that my line was being discontinued or had been dropped. This isn't the case at all. The truth is I was the one who asked to take a couple seasons off. I have learned so much in the past year and I want to apply that to the improvement of my clothing line. I also wanted to make some changes in production so I would be able to lower the price point."

But that's not all...

L.C. claims that she is currently working on new designs for next year, which is when she expects to bring her label back.

"I have spent the last couple weeks working on designs for spring, which is when I am planning to bring the (new and improved) line back. I also have some very exciting things going on that will be announced shortly. So stay tuned!"

Erm... Yay?!
