feeling more like home.


我喜欢时间。它愈合,它恢复,它创造了智慧。它让事情熟悉......

帕特里克,利亚姆,我在加利福尼亚居住了7个1/2个月,我开始觉得我实际上属于这里比以前更多。我曾经是害怕的道路,所有的陌生人,其中一切都是更大的一切都是多少。我不知道如何在没有映射到手机上的情况下,我觉得驾驶洛杉矶是一小块地狱。我紧张的会议人(我应该向他们提出联系信息,所以我们可以成为朋友吗?!我需要朋友!)和觉得真的孤立。我对自己的品牌和愿景感到自信,我并不觉得这一切。我充满了疑问。

开始始终是最难的部分。长跑的开始,解决一个项目,占用新的爱好;男人我对初学者有这么多尊重!“原因在开始时,你必须战斗。事情有挑战性,所以他们还不乐于乐趣。

but the beginning is now beginning to fade into the now, the moments of easiness are returning. i actually noticed it for the first time last week driving home from the fashion district, and my hands weren't their usual sweaty selves on the wheel. i felt relaxed, like i was driving on my turf. even the stupid traffic felt ok, because it felt like it was mine, something i'm now in, not looking at it all from the outside. and when i pulled off the pch onto topanga canyon blvd, i felt like aaaaah. really at home. the windey canyon roads feel safer to me now, i trust myself and the decisions i'm making. i'm making friends with people i really like, people that make me laugh and inspire me. i feel good about getting purusha people out here where it belongs. i trust los angeles to be good to me, if i'm good to her.

我知道事情没有神奇地成为一切美好的和easy, that's for sure. shit's gonna happen, nothing's perfect, and no location can fix that. i'm just saying with the accumulation of time, our little wooden house deep in the canyons of topanga is feeling quite like home these days.

跑道启发和普瑞莎的演变。

唐娜·卡兰

recently i've been calling purusha people clothing 'dreamy high fashion yoga-active-lounge wear', because i feel like what comfy clothes need are a little more style. i've always wanted to be the kind of woman that is super stylish and lovely, rocking heels and mini dresses, always on trend but true to herself. but sometimes life gets in the way of (at least for me!) putting together that awesome outfit because i'm running around, busy working, running errands, literally running (lol), and practicing yoga. from the start, the foundation of my business has been to create work out wear that doesn't look like exercise clothing, and doesn't even have to be worn for working out. a problem i've had, well maybe it's not a problem, just a social faux pas, is i am addicted to wearing yoga pants. addicted. when i wear jeans now it's kinda a big deal. and i secretly wish i was in my spandex. so my mission is to never get out of those yoga pants again! muahhaha!! kinda kidding, kinda not.

but seriously, i am so driven to make clothing that is as comfy as it is cool. and as human/eco-friendly as it is stylish. i google eco-friendly active wear from time to time, and ugh it is always such a disappointment. boxy, embarrassingly shapeless and unfeminine, the clothing just looks like it's made for the woman who has given up on style to support the environment. this should NEVER be the case. ah! the opposite is true. green is in, we all know, and green garments need to be as beautiful as the movement it supports. so what's a planet loving, yoga pants addict, fashion lusting gal to do?

follow fashion, get into it, and mold it into MY vision. so lookout for more runway inspired yoga/lounge clothing in the future here at purusha people! i'm excited, and i hope you are too!

thanks for reading and sharing in my dreams, as always. i am so grateful for you. xo.

all beings free.


所有的众生都曾经有些帕特拉人为帕特拉。这是我的业务的核心价值,但我忍不住有时会感到不知所措,我无法帮助的不可用的鸟儿。

i love yoga, as most of us do. at the end of class teachers sometimes say a blessing, which i am so thankful for. because i am beyond blessed, and i can take those words and actually apply them to my life. sadly though, a lot of people can't do this. no matter how positive someone thinks, how much they focus on love and goodness, and watch as the emotions move through the body, the bad stuff just doesn't go away. and i can't really even understand this as an american woman that hasn't ever suffered any monumental injustices. sure, shit has happened to me, but it's just small turds compared to the massive diarrhea others have gone through. ugh totally gross visual there, but the words just kinda happened. sorry. yes i know we can't compare pain, it's all pain, but honestly i know there is a pain that i have never experienced, and many of us haven't. the suffering of being raped, being tortured in war, losing your whole family in an accident, watching someone you love be killed. i can't. even. imagine. life sometimes just baffles me. it can lift you up and fill your heart with love and light, and it can bury you in fear and rip your heart from your chest. and in the end, you die. we all die. wtf?! i can almost understand the appeal of religion to soothe this reality.

有趣的事情(完全不好笑,实际上非常悲伤)让我思考生物的自由是需要家园的广大狗,并且正在等待被采用。你们都知道我喜欢爱情Liam我的小狗,也许以不健康的方式。最近我真的很想给另一只狗给我们一个幸福的家。所以我一直在巡航Adapet.com,哭泣有多少宝贵的狗没有人爱他们。有成千上万的他们,如果我现在无法采用,我不需要担心,因为明年仍然会有数千个。呃,我的心,它伤害了。我希望我能保护和爱所有的狗。并进一步抨击我的心,大多数人都会被安乐死。这不公平。这些小婴儿没有做错任何事,他们只是想要生活和快乐。 patrick, always the rational dude that sees the big picture, looks over at me crying and says, "just think about all the children that need to be adopted, and the mass suffering of humans everyday too. life is cruel for so many." dogs are easy to care about because they're cute and cuddly, but what about that 12 year old kid that lives in a foster home with all her baggage? shouldn't i want to rescue her too?

so i turned on imagine by john lennon. i wish we could all care for each other and live in peace. but wishing won't do it. i can only do what i can do with my small 2 hands. and that will have to be good enough. i can't save and love them all. one thing though i know i will be doing is donating a portion of all my purusha people sales to a cause, i just don't know what yet. i am drawn to donate to LA animal rescue, but i'd like to donate to something that benefits the freedom of humans as well. let me know if you have any ideas.

我希望我对你来说并不是一个笨蛋。如果有的话,让我们幸福快乐,幸福,我们已经被带到了幸福和自由。他们尚未权利,尽管他们应该是。我的目标在这个短暂的生活中,在史诗般的死亡之前,就是要使我能够为我可能遇到的所有人带来追求幸福的行动。namaste。

我错过了谁?


good morning!

this morning after my ritual of reflecting over my business, i almost feel a little shameful. and discriminatory. no good. i've realized (oh god, duh!) i've been a bad business owner. but that's all about to change. i've neglected people when the core of my business is my love of the customer. i've ignorantly forgotten we are all not the same size and shape. this has been a complaint of the fashion industry since its beginning- we are all not a size 0!! it is time, finally, to listen to this powerful fact. like it or not clothing brands, the reality is plus size people want to wear your clothing and they can't. soooo many beautiful voluptuous women want to practice yoga and feel beautiful and true to themselves while doing it. they want to exercise, take care of themselves, and look hot, just like anyone else. so why discriminate? why not make their size? it's really kinda mind boggling to ignore your customers. purusha people is coming out with a 'plus size' line for spring 2013. and it's gonna be amazing. i'm excited! AND i'm going to be working on a men's yoga/work out wear line for 2013 as well. no one should be left out. purusha is inclusivity. i almost felt like i was 80% sure about my business, but something was missing. someone was missing. now i know. and i feel 100%. :)

电话推销。


you guys. this morning i began doing what i've been a little scared of doing- calling stores and speaking to buyers. after a few stutters and awkward word phrasing on the first call, i relaxed a bit. the funny thing i always learn is, most people are nice and want you to succeed too! phew! my plan is to move purusha people from being just online to at stores too! and really cool stores, i've been scoping it out :).

so i have to send samples to some places for spring 2013. please let me know if you have any favorite items you think i should send! i feel really torn, especially because i'm coming out with a new collection in about a month, and like those items so much too... really any input is totally helpful. you all have great taste and know what you want, so feel free to give me any advice!

thank you my dears!! today i feel good. i didn't feel like the calls were cold either. they were actually really warm. xo.

nostalgia sets in.

照片我从2007年秋天在大池塘,CT

一些关于不落在新英格兰this year is making me very emotional. it could also be that it's that time of the month. i dunno. but i feel soooo nostalgic, and just wishy washy. i cried to patrick a little this morning about the fact that we can't move backwards in time. those moments that i didn't even realize were special are gone, only alive in a coma in my memories. rational patrick helps a bit, telling me that, like most people, i have survivor ship bias, or i am only choosing to remember the good and forget all the bad.

yes, this seems to be true, but i still feel a little sad. i miss when patrick and i first met in the spring of 2007 in simsbury, ct. we both lived at home, i didn't have a job. my only job was to spend time with patrick and fall in love. and paint pictures. and write poems in my childhood bedroom. i told patrick that i missed those carefree days, and ha, patrick said, "we were ignorant, we didn't know we were adults that should have been working and not living at home. you were 23!", and "didn't you long for more though?". all true, but i really needed that time to figure out what i wanted to do with my precious time.

patrick and i, that summer and fall of 2007, we just rode bikes, ate food together, went on hikes, and learned about who we were. it was so sacred. i tear up to think we can't ever go hang out in patrick's room again (his family doesn't live there anymore), and we can't ride down his road at night and look at all the fireflies. that time is gone.

and then when we moved in together 2 years later in collinsville, ct. i find myself missing that too. we were both working more then, but still, we had this safety there, this feeling like we were still young and free. our families were nearby, lots of friends down the street, and plenty of time to spend exploring life together. again, patrick just told me "that house was dark, you wanted to move and try something different, and we knew we couldn't stay some place because it was easy." yes, pat, right again. maybe another day i will be so rational. but not today.

有趣/疯狂/愚蠢的事情是,我全心全意地了解我会在塔戈纳的时间看,思考......我希望我能回来。当事情更简单时。时间是一个概念,我们都没有被困在一起的时间可以理解。我所能理解的只是我对......的依恋的感受......然后尝试在这一刻,非常感谢那些我想念的那些人在这里和我在一起,安全和声音。

we have to move forward, life is change. i'm not sure though i will ever be able to think back without a few tears mourning what was and can never be again. but that's natural right? i have a feeling i will be a weepy old woman someday, crying when i'm happy, sad, nostalgic... if i can't understand time, at least i can feel it. i can feel it.

我会开车。


last night (or this morning) i kept having a repetitive dream. i'd wake for a bit and then go right back in it. why does this only happen in the stupid and scary dreams? in the dream i was in a hurry and driving through burlington, VT somehow mixed with the scenery of canton and simsbury, CT. typical, 'some nights' by fun was playing on the radio. the main thing i remember from the dream was being in the driver's seat, and then getting scared and pulling myself over to the passenger seat. but then i would be even more scared because i wasn't controlling the car, just watching it begin to swerve into the other lane. so i jumped back over to the driver seat and drove for a bit, then got scared again that i wasn't a good driver and dove into the passenger seat. over and over. trapped in a crazy roller coaster car ride blasting that increasingly annoying song. this dream seemed so silly in the brief moments i woke up to roll over in bed, but now as i think about it, it's very meaningful for me. often i tell myself habitual stories of fear and worry and i feel like i can't be a leader. but then the thought of being a follower, a mere passenger while no one is driving is about a 1000 times more unsettling. i posted a photo on my purusha facebook page last night that said, "decide that you want it more than you are afraid of it". maybe this conjured up my dream. it can be frightening to face the fears that come up when you make moves toward your goals. but truly i know that those tiny fears don't feel nearly as bad as regret, or dissatisfaction with yourself for letting the coward take the wheel. and, fear is natural. there is nothing wrong with a little fear. driving is dangerous, and we have to be cautious. but the point of life, and my dream, is to get real comfortable with what scares you. it is the only way to happiness. today i'm thinking i would much rather be in the driver seat and realize the strong, passionate, brave woman that i am! namaste.

less is more.


with how easy it is to be busy and accumulate possessions and thoughts and to do lists, often i have to remind myself less is more. simplicity is a magic wand that causes worries and clutter of the mind and the body to disappear. we don't need more. we have enough. the day needs less busyness and more moments of space and deep breaths and hugs. i don't need to run so hard, work myself silly, or let my mind's thoughts cloudy up the sunshine of my brain. we need less. namaste.

a purusha person.


这个长周末真的好时间think about purusha, and how i envision the brand. {i'm going to hold off on my kickstarter launch for a bit until i have a few things sorted out!}

i adore asking the question: WHO is a purusha person? over time my definition will change, but right now because i am mainly targetting 21-50 year old women (give or take), a purusha person is a woman. not just any woman though. she is, above all, kind. and from her kindness comes beauty. she isSavoir Faire.(in love with this term), or adaptable and adroit, knowing what to do in any situation. especially the current situation of our time. now is the moment for awareness and compassion. a purusha woman is aware of the world around her, and the effect she has on the planet. yet she isn't preachy, but simply lives by example. she cares about what she supports with her dollar; because she worked really hard for it, and because she believes in freedom and happiness as a universe-given right. a purusha woman loves being current, be it fashion or food or architecture, but again not at the expense of other beings. she loves her family, spends time everyday in nature, is inspired by the beach and the mountains, dreams of travelling to far off places, and takes pride in her body and mind by exercising, meditating, and practicing yoga. our woman is fully well rounded- intelligent, curious, sensual, lovely, funny, non-dramatic, creative, humble, and shares her love with each person she meets.

i love this lady! and lucky me, she is my customer. no wonder my buyers become my friends and are some of the sweetest people i've met! thank for inspiring me to make clothing worthy of you. namaste.
