Comedy writer Bonnie Datt once bought a chainmail vest "for clubbing"—a purchase she later came to lament, once she realized that chainmail wasn't particularly slimming. Inspired by this, she now spends her spare time asking famous people to dish about purchases which they initially loved—but ended up regretting, for Buyer's Remorse.

Brad Goreski first came to fame as a star of the reality show, The Rachel Zoe Project, where he worked as one of the famed celebrity stylist's assistants. After three seasons on the show, Brad went out on his own, both as a stylist, and as the star of his own show, Bravo's It's A Brad Brad World. Most recently, he's partnered with Kate Spade, even inspiring the brand's upcoming spring collection. So we were intrigued to find out what Brad had Buyer's Remorse about—and even more intrigued to learn that he used to be a raver...
Racked: Can you tell us about something you've had Buyer's Remorse about?
Brad Goreski: A pair of—they still have the price tags on them—it's a pair of Bottega Veneta over-sized denim with bright orange stitching on them. I thought I was in love with them and bought them in white and in dark denim and I've never worn them. Well I've worn them once. But it wasn't a really good look for me.
Racked: Why didn't you like them?
Brad Goreski: Because they reminded me of my raver days in a bad way. Remember those JNCO Jeans or whatever they were called? The big big ones? They looked like that. And they were a fortune.
