This Monday, Hills star Lauren Conrad‘s rep confirmed to PEOPLE.com that the star is putting her eponymous clothing line on hiatus in light of the current economy, and today the L.C. is taking to her MySpace page to blog about the decision. Listing her current mood as “excited,” the star says, “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.” But, she clarifies, “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.” The star goes on to explain that she decided to put the collection on pause to apply the industry knowledge she acquired over the past year. She also addresses a criticism that has been targeted at the collection, saying that she wants to make production changes that will lower the price point. So when can we expect to see the collection back in stores? “I have spent the last couple weeks working on designs for spring,” she says, “which is when I am planning to bring the (new and improved) line back.” Tell us: Are you looking forward to seeing Lauren back in the design game in 2010?

I think her clothes are great, a little over priced though. Instead of trying to sell to the upper class she should try selling in stores that cater to the public as a whole and mark down the selling price. Sorry but a simple top is not worth $100 or more. Try selling to common folks and I’m sure your sales would be much higher.

Right…. Sure it was your decision…. Just keep telling yourself that. Industry knowledge over the past year? How in the world did starring in a “reality” TV show increase your industry knowledge?

I can’t stand this twit. She has no talent and she is famous because her family is rich and they had a reality show about it. She treats everyone who is not wealthy like sh.t and she can’t hang onto a friend for the life of her.

Yes, I am looking forward to Lauren being back in the design game in 2010!

I think she made a great and smart decision. I love her and her clothes but didn’t want to spend that much on them. But since she is taking the time and effort to change the material to lower the prices, I’m super excited and will definitely be purchasing them when it returns in the spring! Yay go Lauren! love you!

We just want The Hills…. That’s it… Clothing line or not… Mondays are worth living again.

Lauren’s fashion line was boring and overpriced. No one in my Midwestern city would want to wear all that drapey jersey/tunic like clothing and pay that much for it.

Get a grip Lauren – your line wasn’t selling, you were forced to pull it, and now you’re calling it your choice.

Lauren needs a new business manager. She had the buyers, her audience. But no one explained to her that the people who watch her show cannot afford those prices.

Bad economy or not, her line would have been thriving if she had targeted her audience.
