Vintage Treasures

There’s something special about buying a vintage, pre-owned item. We wonder who owned this particular piece in the past, what it meant, who gave it to him or her, and how it came to be in this vintage shop or eBay store today. There’s also something satisfying about bringing an old item back to life, and styling it in a fresh way.

In this fascinating and eye-opening TED Talk, designer Jessi Arrington talks about conscious consuming and details her experiences buying only pre-owned, vintage, thriftstore clothing and accessories. She pulls off interesting looks with this method– sometimes refined and simple, and other times loud and funky.

Many of her outfits include multiple colors and patterns that complement her charisma and charm. Arrington goes into detail about why she has chosen to stop buying new items and how we can all reduce our carbon footprints with more mindful buying. Check out her talk, “Wearing Nothing New,” here.
