Sales Rack Horror Stories

We’ve all had those moments…you know, when you snap up something “totally fab” on the sale rack only to look at the next morning and wonder what the heck you were thinking.


Lotsa GL readers spilled their bad fashion confessions. Here are four of our faves:


I picked up this striped two-button blazer once, on sale at Winners for $11. I thought it was a great steal, since it could be casual with a tank and jeans, or I could dress it up with a skirt and brooch. I guess I overlooked the colors: white and orangey-pink. I soon realized that it looked like something out of a carnival!

One time my mom went shopping and saw this "cute" dress and had to buy it for me. It was brown and white and looked really old timey! I only wore it for a project…on Helen Keller!

One time I bought these gold harem pants. They were totally on trend and I was super-psyched by the deep discount. When I pulled them on the next morning though…oh, it was so bad! I couldn’t leave the house.

I love a good deal, so when I found these burgundy cords on sale for like $12, I snapped ‘em up. I wore them, too, even though they were so super flared at the bottom that they looked like they were straight out of the 70s.

Got more to share? We wanna hear it, babes!
