I wish I still had that...

   Discussion: I wish I still had that...
Mamalissa! · 19 years, 11 months ago

Is there any piece of clothing you wish you could still wear?� Perhaps it got old and worn, or stained, or too small... but you wish you could have it back?

Someone asked me whether I had any bellbottoms, and I thought wistfully back to a pair I had in high school.�

And there are a couple of dresses from college I'd love to be able to fit into again, so they're still around.� You know... if I get a tapeworm or something.

i wish i still had my dad's old jeans that looked super hot on me (no kidding). i stole them regularly throughout high school & then he threw them away :(

actually, i wish i still had access to a lot of my father's clothing, now that i'm almost as skinny as him.

I wish I still had my dukes of hazzard tshirt that I got when I was .... probably 5.

It was my favorite.

For some reason, however, I don't think it would fit me anymore. :)

MUDD used to make boys jeans, and i had the MOST COMFY JEANS EVAR from them. they fell apart in college and i had them held together with over 100 saftey pins in decorative patterns. i eventually threw them out :( i didn't look particularly great in them but they had a neat dye job and were so comfy. :(

it wasnt until years later i learned that MUDD was a teeny-bopper jean company. and until recently, i couldnt even get into their biggest size.

2. my r.e.m. migraine boy shirt (which had an unfortunate bleach-related incident)
3. my fuzzy sk8r boi shoes :P
4. the indian print skirt i wore constantly in 11th grade
5. lots of broken old necklaces that were turned into craft supplies when i worked as an arts and crafts "counselor" for vacation bible school

had the best pair of jeans in the world when i was about eight. dark blue with silver threads running through them. i struggled to get into them for far too long. eventually i'd have to wear a really long top over them because i couldn't get them zipped anymore, much less buttoned. tee hee!

they became too short eventually and i had to give up. I hid them so they wouldn't get handed down to anyone. when i was 13 or so, i cut them up and used strips of the jean material in a blazer I created (still fits properly!), so i guess i still have them in some form.

purple billowy amazing purple silk skirt with mother-of-pearl buttons and these long, thin, soft, a little lumpy-feeling sweaters.

I could wear that forever.

i miss the vintage falmer glitter flares that died in a rain storm and the red bellbottoms I threw out as everyone called me "the girl with the red trousers" and did not bother to learn my name.

I used to have a purple and white striped shirt when I was about 5. I loved it because it looked like it would taste sooo good. Yeah.. shut up, I was 5.

I used to have this black zip-up hoodie I think I wore for a year my sophomore year in highschool. I had poked thumbholes in it, to keep them all the way down on my arms.. and I had pins everywhere on it.. and it was bleached out in certain spots.. and I absolutely killed it..

but it was royally comfy.. and I thought I looked like the shiznit wearin' it.

I miss that thing. I was thinking about it earlier.. funny enough.

I remember having an old t-shirt of the Star Trek VI teaser poster I somewhat liked. The jury's still out on whether I want the TNG uniform shirt two of my teachers (also trek fans) bought me at a convention. :-P

'twas a gold operations uniform. They'd originally bought me a red command one, with 4 captain's pips, but I wanted the gold one. I didn't have a problem with not being able to be a captain in that division, so I traded one of the gold pips for a black one, and could then make any rank I wanted. :-P

*waits for a "wow, you're a geek" posts to troll in* :-P

an orange sweater that ended up with the knitting fusing together after it got too hot while i sat in front of a gas fireplace. it didn't melt, but the knitting fused together into this patch that looked the same as the rest of the sweater... but hard.

and a brown sweater that was my fathers from before i was even born. it was falling apart but SO comfy. i threw it out with all of the other hand-me-downs i had of his after we got into a fight.

i know this doesn't count, but.

i wish i'd actually bought some jurassic park merch at the time it came out. (despite the fact that i was 10 and was receiving approximately 20p pocket money a week.) because now it's fecking gold dust. wah.

*goes off to scour ebay for jp t-shirts*
Bender Back · 19 years, 11 months ago

Nik Chaikin Back · 19 years, 11 months ago
I originaly had a blue one as a lt. comander, but i out gr- *cough* i mean got promoted to bridge duty when i became a comander.

But if you still had the orange sweater you'd need a walkie-talkie and a haircut, too.��
renita Back · 19 years, 11 months ago
heeheehee :D

nah, the orange vest is a plastic, security kind-of thing.

i did security at frff the year i went. i had a vest and a walkie-talkie and my newly-shaved head. RAWR.

the orange sweater was knit and comfy and happy.

All my pairs of vanquished Chucks.... cuz I don't want to buy them anymore now that they're owned by Nike. The ones that were maroon, navy, and forest green were the best.
iPauley Back · 19 years, 11 months ago
yeah -- it actually isn't hollow, it's black with a gold ring around it. While I didn't really fancy myself being and android, I always kinda wanted Data's rank and job.
