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.

With the season finale of ABC Family's Jane By Design airing tomorrow night, we thought it would be a good time to check in with the show's star, Erica Dasher. We asked the actress what she's had Buyer's Remorse about. Her answer was something which we totally related to—and bet you will too...
Racked: Can you tell us about a time you've had Buyer's Remorse?
Erica Dasher: I get a lot of Buyer's Remorse with food. If I'm dining with a friend, and they get a dish, then I'm eyeing their dish for the rest of the meal. That happens a lot.
Racked: Can you give us an example?
Erica Dasher: I went to Westville [in New York City] and I had crab cakes and some of the market sides while my friend got macaroni and cheese. I just wanted to eat that. So I did! I shared it.
