Stylish celebs are often seen dangling the latest tote du jour, sporting the freshest designer kicks, or wearing designer brands from head-to-toe.

It's safe to say that given their well-stocked wardrobe, they've come across a lot of luxury goods in their lifetime, and have filtered out the "must-buys" from the "never-agains."

Preview.ph asked stars what items they regret buying and, lo and behold, their answers range from the most uncomfortable pieces to the least worn.

Perhaps their insights will help us make our own purchase decisions in the hopes that, one day, we can say that we shopped what we had coveted with no regrets.

"But throughout the years, I realized that I’m better with smaller bags—I’m forced to only bring essentials because of the size. And, they’re better for my back too!" the fashion blogger recounted.
