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.

Tony and Emmy award winning actress and singer Kristin Chenoweth has an incredibly impressive list of credits. Some of her most memorable include appearances on The West Wing, Glee, Pushing Daisies and originating the character of Glinda in the original Broadway production of Wicked. She's also become a front row denizen at New York's Fashion Week. In fact, we spotted her at so many shows this past February, that we probably saw more of her than we did our own family. The beautiful and extremely petite Chenoweth always looks amazing, so we were surprised when she shared a Buyer's Remorse story about something that Jessica Simpson also has come to regret wearing.
Racked: Tell us about something you've had Buyer's Remorse about.
Kristin Chenoweth: Not long ago—those jeans that went up real high. I have boobs, you know? You don't want to wear that, because then you look pregnant. It didn't do Jessica Simpson any favors and it didn't do Kristin Chenoweth any favors either! And we've got okay bodies.
Racked: You have a great body.
Kristin Chenoweth: You know, Mom jeans.
