(1) 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.

make a confession:告白する
public:公共の、公の
outfit-obsessed :洋服に心奪われて、夢中で
every single occasion:あらゆる場面
secondhand:中古で
flea market:蚤の市 (× free market)
thrift store:中古品店 *thrift:倹約

(2) 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 gonna find today? Is it gonna 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.

allow 人 to do ~:人に〜することを許す
reduce:減らす
wardrobe:洋服タンス、洋服一式
wallet:財布
get to do ~:〜するようになる
treasure hunt:宝探し
as though[if] S V:まるでSがVかのように

(3) I wanna get back to my suitcase, and tell you what I packed for this exciting week here at TED. I mean, what does someboby with all these outfits bring with her? So I’m going to show you exactly what I brought. I brought seven pairs of underpants, and that’s it. Exactly one week’s worth of undies is all I put in my suitcase. I was betting that I’d be able to find everything else I could possible want to wear once I got here to Palm Springs. And since you don’t know me as the woman walking around TED in her underwear -- that means I found a few things. And I’d really love to show you my week’s worth of outfits right now. Does that sound good? So as I do this, I’m also gonna tell you a few of the life lessons that, believe it or not, I have picked up in these adventures wearing nothing new.

one week’s worth of ~:1週間分の〜
bet:賭け(る)
once S V:いったんSがVすると
believe it or not:信じようと信じまいと

(4) So let’s start with Sunday. I call this “Shiny Tiger.” You do not have to spend a lot of money to look great. You can almost always look phenomenal for under $50. This whole outfit, including the jacket, cost me $55, and it was the most expensive thing that I wore the entire week.

phenomenal:驚くほど素晴らしい
entire:全部の、丸々

(5) Monday: Color is powerful. It is almost physiologically impossible to be in a bad mood when you’re wearing bright red pants. (Laughter) If you are happy, you are going to attract other happy people to you.

physiologically:生理的に
attaract:惹きつける

(6) Tuesday: Fitting in is way overrated. I’ve spent a whole lot of my life trying to be myself and at the same time fit in. Just be who you are. If you are surrounding yourself with the right people, they will not only get it, they will appreciate it.

fit in:適応する、協調する
way (副):はるかに、〜すぎて
overrate:過大評価する
appreciate:評価する

(7) Wednesday: Embrace your inner child. Sometimes people tell me that I look like I’m playing dress-up, or that I remind them of their seven-year-old. I like to smile and say, “Thank you.”

embrace:抱擁する;(思想など)受け入れる
inner:内なる
play dress-up:着せ替えごっこをする
remind A of B:AにBを思い出させる

(8) Thursday: Confidence is key. If you think you look good in something, you almost certainly do. And if you don’t think you look good in something, you’re also probably right. I grew up with a mom who taught me this day-in and day-out. But it wasn’t until I turned 30 that I really got what this meant. And I’m going to break it down for you for just a second. If you believe you’re a beautiful person inside and out, there is no look that you can’t pull off. So there is no excuse for any of us here in this audience. We should be able to rock anything we want to rock. Thank you.

confidence:信用、自信
day-in and day-out:明けても暮れても
it isn’t until A that S V.:Aして初めてSVする。
universal:普遍的な
break ~ down:〜を分解〔分析〕する
pull off:うまくやり遂げる
rock:着こなす

(9) Friday: A universal truth − five words for you: Gold sequins go with everything.

sequin:スパンコール
go with ~:〜と合う

(10) And finally, Saturday: Developing your own unique personal style is a really great way to tell the world something about you without having to say a word. It’s been proven to me time and time again as people have walked up to me this week simply because of what I’m wearing, and we’ve had great conversations.

prove:証明する
time and time again:時々

(11) So obviously this is not all going to fit back in my tiny suitcase. So before I go home to Brooklyn, I’m going to donate everything back. Because the lesson I’m trying to learn myself this week is that it’s okay to let go. I don’t need to get emotionally attached to these things because around the corner, there is always going to be another crazy, colorful, shiny outfit just waiting for me, if I put a little love in my heart and look.

obviously:明らかに
donate:寄付する
let go:放す、手放す
get attached to ~:〜に愛着を持つ

Thank you for listening till the end!
