From the Ted Talk by Jessi Arrington: Wearing nothing new

Unscramble the Blue Letters

I'm Jessi, and this is my ssutiace. But before I show you what I've got inside, I'm going to make a very public confession, and that is, I'm outfit-obsessed. I love fniding, wearing, and more recently, photographing and blogging a different, colorful, carzy ouftit for every single occasion. But I don't buy anything new. I get all my clothes secondhand from flea markets and thrift stores. Aww, thank you. Secondhand shopping allows me to rcedue the impact my wardrobe has on the environment and on my welalt. I get to meet all kinds of great people; my dollars usually go to a good cause; I look pretty unique; and it makes shopping like my own personal treasure hunt. I mean, what am I going to find today? Is it going to be my size? Will I like the coolr? Will it be under $20? If all the answers are yes, I feel as though I've won.

Original Text

I'm Jessi, and this is my suitcase. But before I show you what I've got inside, I'm going to make a very public confession, and that is, I'm outfit-obsessed. I love finding, wearing, and more recently, photographing and blogging a different, colorful, crazy outfit for every single occasion. But I don't buy anything new. I get all my clothes secondhand from flea markets and thrift stores. Aww, thank you. Secondhand shopping allows me to reduce the impact my wardrobe has on the environment and on my wallet. I get to meet all kinds of great people; my dollars usually go to a good cause; I look pretty unique; and it makes shopping like my own personal treasure hunt. I mean, what am I going to find today? Is it going to be my size? Will I like the color? Will it be under $20? If all the answers are yes, I feel as though I've won.
