i have made many purchases my wallet regretted, but i never regret wearing an expensive purchase. actually, every time i don't buy something too expensive, i often regret not buying it even months later.

I pretty much regret every juicy couture shirt I've ever purchased. Mostly, because they're just overpriced t shirts. I've gotten a lot more use and had many more great fashion moments in my Marc Jacobs, Michael Kors, and Versace pieces.

juicy couture bathing suit, BCBG pumps, BCBG sequin top, Cynthia Rowley pumps, the list goes on - unfortunately, I'm addicted to online shopping, so I frequently buy stuff on impulse that don't end u[p fitting right, but for the most part I end up selling them on eBay...

I've a time where I'd buy a whole bunch of things and get my cell phone bill and regret buying all those things. Cell phone bills nowadays are outrageous! That picture in the article is amazing by the way ;)

I generally don't feel guilty about things I buy...even if I dont wear them. Im missing that chip apparently and its my downfall for sure. I spend first ask questions later. Im confident it will ruin me later in life. lol

Well, since I tend to be an impulse shopper, I regret many of my purchases...actually, it's more that I feel guilty about spending money on stuff I don't need than regret.

haven't done that in a long time, but i remember when i was much younger, my parents buy me zebra print pants, they were from a mark called "Bubblegum" never, never used them, thank God!!, that's only one i remember the most, because they were really ugly.

I buy lots of shoes on sale that I never end up wearing. Cashmere, however, is never a regret! As soon as I see it on sale somewhere I must have it.

Money, fashion, and guilt go together so well! :)

Oh yes. Usually dresses, because I'm not much of a dress wearer. So they languish, waiting for an occasion!

yes, i've been known to buy something because i thought i couldn't live without it, and then i've never worn it so i guess i could have lived without it. that's one of the things that we have to deal with when we're slaves to fashion.

An ill-fitting suit I bought and wore maybe once. I should have returned it once I tried it on, but it just seemed like too much of a hassle at the time. I haven't worn it in 2 years or so, and I need to just give it away so I don't get depressed about $300 down the drain every time I open my closet!

No, when I indulge it is usually something I wanted in the first place.

I've only been indulging for the past two years, and so far all five of my "crazy" purchases (sunglasses, bag, two dresses and a top) have been well worth it.

i buy stuff i dont wear ALL THE TIME, but most of my extravagant purchases i get good use out of i hate when i find that i made a bad choice though. like my new standard issue is buying jeans a size too big. the 6's feel tight in the store so i buy the 8's and then within an hour of wearing them, they stretch out like crazy and i have to give them away. i need to remember i'm a 6! don't deviate!

Yep! In fact, later today I'm going to return it to the mall. It's a handbag that I've been coveting for a while. Shouldn't have bought it, so I'm returning it. Couldn't even use it out of guilt.

I have these Christian Louboutins that I don't regret, per se, but I've never worn them! I'm desperate for an occassion to come up so I can get my €800 worth!!

Sometimes I have bought things and regretted it because it was not worth the price, it got trashed easily, or I never wore it. One time, though, my grandma bought me this cute J.Lo boots that I really wanted back in the early '00s and I never wore it. Not once. I felt terrible, I was just too insecure to wear something that screamed "look at me! look at me!" I didn't think I could pull it off.
