We've all been there: You splurge on those shoes you've been eyeing for awhile or that designer handbag that's screaming your name only to then get a strong case of buyer's remorse as soon as you receive your credit card statement. This is a feeling we know too well, and so does pro-shopper Lisa Vanderpump. That's right, even style queen Lisa has experienced this retail conundrum. However, as you can imagine, The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills pal's experience is in a category all its own.
While talking about her spending habits with InStyle, Lisa revealed the one purchase she regrets most, and the price of this item is jaw-dropping. (Try $20,000 worth of regret.) “I bought a ridiculous ball gown from Valentino, and it was a fortune. You could buy a nice car for this dress. It was a black, lace wedding dress. I thought I’d be wearing it and wearing it and wearing it — and I’ve worn it twice. So I think I’ve paid basically $10,000 every time I’ve worn it," Lisa shared. This must be one heck of a dress!
Lisa also revealed another detail that may have added to her buyer's remorse. “You’re not gonna believe it, I don’t even have a credit card. I have a debit card, and it comes out of my account. Because if I had a credit card, I would never pay the bills. I just wouldn’t remember," she shared. Therefore, Lisa saw that large lump sum of $20K leave her checking account instantly.
"Pandora says, ‘With the amount of money you spend, you should have a credit card so you can get points.’ But I like to know where I stand," she explained. Oh, we're sure that Valentino gown alone would've got you plenty of bonus points, Lisa.
Somehow, we don’t feel as bad about our splurges any more.
