Things you were attracted to as a child?
What clothes/items did you love when you were are kid and where there any items that you really wanted?

When i was a kid i loved my jelly shoes,by the time my first pair wore out the trend had faded and i could never find a better pair anywhere lol.
Also there was this ring my sister had,i loved it..it was a silver ring that was like a snake coiled around the finger, i always used to sneak into her jewlerry box and admire the ring I'm still looking for something similar to it now

High heels- Go figure. I'm a nut now.

Purple eyeshadow. I wanted a makeup brush because it tickled. Now I'm a makeup addict.

I wanted a tiara and a tutu because ballerinas wore them and my sister had them because she took ballet, but I wanted to have the outfit and not the class. My mom gave me ballet style slippers to shut me up for a while.

Snoopy backpack- he was my hero when I was 3.

Black barbie. Someone told me there was a really dark Barbie and I never seen one or believed them so I wanted one for myself.

And the funniest thing....I wanted a headband because my mommy's gay aerobics teacher and her gay friend wore them and everyone loved them. I figured I guess as a child that everyone would adore me like they were. Now we all know better, but maybe thats how it started... gay man trapped in a womans body over here

At age 3 I was already attracted to jewellery, especially turquoises and coral, according to my mother I used to press my nose against the jewellers shopwindow like other kids do at toyshops. Years on, the fascination has but increased

Tights, tights, tights in all the colours that exist! Hey, I was a '90s-kid, off course I wore tights. And I always wanted long, black boots. Some Kate Moss-ish ones.

I was also the skinniest&tallest kid ever, bones sticking out everywhere, and my BIGGEST dream was jeans that was tight, since I didn't had hips, and I never found these jeans tight enough for me without being too short. Nah... was it really the jeans I wanted? Or was it HIPS I wanted? Oh, man, hips was my biggest dream when I was kid, so clothes would be tight and fit me.

What a paradox, now my hips is the thing on my body I HATE the most.

I used to love Rainbow Brite (remember her? :'( ) and so had a HUGE collection of rainbow derived clothing, including a pair of rainbow gumboots and rainbow socks and a rainbow party dress mum made specially for me

I used to stuff things in my pants and under my shirt. I was like 5 or 6 years old. Some sort of weird fashiony thingy, perhaps? God that was a weird phase.

I have always loved BLACK shoes.

I used to wear this ankle high black Reebox sneaks like everywhere. I lived in those things.

I'd wear them with shorts and tank tops in the summer. And I was always really skinny growing up.

My stepmother hated them, said my legs looked like toothpicks stuck into black jelly beans.

According to family-legend (which I really dont remember)...there was this blue coat w/ a red hood & white fur lining around the hood, and I wore it everywhere, everyday, all the time...To bed, to breakfast, to dinner..and, from what Dad tells me, everytime he would try to take it off, I'd throw a fit and start crying.

So I guess even at a young age, I'd get upset if I couldnt wear what I wanted to..Hmmm..

Near the age of six or seven, I remember wanting high-tops before the start of a new school year - at the last minute, I went searching with my parents in tow, but we weren't successful in finding a pair in time... funny how the things I never managed to acquire have left the most lasting impression... But I cherished my collections of 'jelly' sandals, Scrunchies, leggings, oversized chenille sweaters...

I was just thinking about this recently when I bought a pair of red shoes for the first time in forever ... I loved red when I was a little kid. My mother always got me brown or black shoes, but one time she ordered one of these and red came by accident. I begged to keep them (and did), and they clashed horribly with this orange dress I had at the time

I also absolutely loved these red corduroy overalls I had when I was about 2 years old. I am wearing them in one of my very first memories, walking down the staircase in my grandmother's house when I was so short I had to sway and reeeeach for the next step. I was going down to the kitchen to eat breakfast and I remember all the wonderful smells of pancakes and sausage and maple syrup wafting up the stairs. I had a doll named Gretchen with blonde yarn braids and she had matching red corduroy overalls that I assume my mom must have made for her
