Vintage and secondhand conniessour, Jessi Arrington, is a quirky and lovable person who really inspires people to live and dress colorfully. What's so different about Jessi? She only purchases clothing from secondhand and thrift shops. Her story is really inspiring and perhaps will even, make you second guess your own materialistic consumption. In the video below, she talks about her story and the lessons she has learned:
Her quirkiness and positivity really brought up a couple of points that I feel are important in developing a sense of self, and dressing powerfully:
- Color is power. It really has the ability to change someones mood, and uplift your spirit. She said it perfectly " who can be in a bad mood when your wearing red pants?". And if your in a positive mood, you also attract positive people.
- Fitting in is overrated. Just be who you are.
- Confidence is key! If you believe you look good in something, than you most definitely do! If you believe your beautiful inside and out, you can rock anything you want to rock.
- Developing your own personal style is a good way to say something about yourself without saying a word.
Granted, I wouldn't just buy vintage clothes, and her style is not my kind of style at all. But you know what? She rocks it because she believes it. She is really sending out her positive message to the world. She really proves that fashion isn't just about clothes its also about the people who wear them.
What do you guys think? I'd love to hear your thoughts!
