1. Not-So-Super HeroesSean Charles of SeanInTheCity confesses, "Comic tees are my kryptonite. However, once I put them on, I look 12 years old. I try so hard to be Batman, but I end up looking like Robin the Boy Wonder."
2. Green Isn't Always GoodAllison Edwards of Where Wear in the City purchased this pair of green pumps by Pour La Victoire at Neiman Marcus Last Call and has worn them exactly once. She explains, "I had to have them because I loved the color so much, and I thought I could wear them with most basic outfits. Not true!"
3. The Mad HatterFinally, even a professional shopper falls for the occasional impulse. I happened upon this tiny vintage-inspired hat on a trip to San Diego, and envisioned it topping off a Dita Von Teese-style retro ensemble. That is, until I realized that I looked nothing like Dita and dangerously like Johnny Depp in Alice in Wonderland. Lesson learned.
