I also remember wanting what I called a "Lost In Space" shirt - mainly, a shirt with a V-neck. Judging from some photos, I appear to have succeeded in fulfilling my desire.
I did have some ill-fated flirtations with various items - like a notorious month or so in junior high school with a pair of brown boots. I consider that one of my "what was I thinking?" moments. I don't even think it was possible to walk normally, but I insisted on my precious boots - until I woke up one morning and discovered the dorkiness factor. I never put them on again - to the great relief of my friends, I suspect. The middle school mind works in mysterious ways.
