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.
When it comes to sharing her ultimate Buyer's Remorse story, handbag designer Dee Ocleppo—better known as Mrs. Tommy Hilfiger—looks back to her teenage days for a story of hair color gone very wrong. So without further ado, Dee's shopping regret:
Sun-In, that would be my Buyer's Remorse. I sprayed Sun-In in my hair and on my eyebrows and it turned them orange. Sun-In and maybe one of those newer tanning crèmes that turns you orange. I think anything that turns you orange is something that would be a definite Buyer's remorse.
