What items have you bought that you've then spotted on a sleb? Was it somebody fashionable or a saddo?

I bought a dress from oasis to wear to a wedding. Then spotted on Gillian mckeith. Needless to say, it went straight to the charity shop.

A work top spotted on Sonia Jackson and Tracey Barlow (the characters not the actresses). Couldn't wear it knowing that I had the same clothes as frumpy Sonia.

I bought a gorgeous wisteria print blazer from Whistles, and then Mary Berry wore it in the final of the Great British Bake Off grin

I bought a dress in Great Plains sale recently, it was awful, tried to palm it off on my mum who very sensibly refused it. We then watched Miranda together and she was wearing it. The dress went straight back. Utter mortification!

K Middy went through a phase of copying me. Reiss Shola. LKB Sledge and a couple of Whistles dresses. Fortunately I was able to offload to eBay for pretty much what I paid for them.

Oh no, I think I've just spotted Kerry Katona in the very bottom picture, in the cheap New Look leather jacket that I have.

So my celeb a-likes are now Chantelle and Kerry Katona. I think I need to rethink my style! blush

I bought a purple wool coat with detachable black fur collar about 15yrs ago in Next, loved it until I saw Dot Cotton wearing it in the Queen Vic...

I bought a wollen coat in NYC and a while later Bree was wearing it on Desperate Housewives. A colleague watched the show and spotted it. I was known as Bree for a few weeks after that. Beautiful coat, shame i don't fit into it now.

I had a 'going away' outfit nearly 30 years ago! grin

DD bought a bright orange jacket in the sale a couple of weeks ago. She then spotted Claire Balding wearing it on her new Saturday night programme.

monkeysmama Not that silver puffa jacket? (Keeps fingers closed thats a 'no') wink

Eastenders characters keeping wearing things I have. Sharon had my jacket on the other day and twice Bianca has worn things I have. That's pretty bad.

I saw a Boden cropped cardi of mine on Phoebe from 'Friends.' Was a swirly Paisley design and I loved it - put weight on so it's consigned to the loft now, waiting for me to shrink has been for four years.

I also once saw a Jigsaw jacket on What Not To Wear - it was one of the newly-bought things, I hasten to add smile.

I got a silver and black skirt from topshop, wore it to the work xmas party then a couple of weeks later spotted it on Viv from emmerdale! It was never worn again!! blush

Saw a young presenter on Milkshake wearing an Oasis t-shirt I own a few weeks back. Which made me think maybe I'm dressing too young for my age confused

But then, last week, Abi from Eastenders was wearing the same Florence & Fred jumper as me. Not so sure on that one whether I'm dressing like mutton, or Eastenders are making Abi look like an old frump!

I had a French Connection Jersey dress that pippa middleton was papped wearing. I am no fan and so I then hocked it on ebay for a ridiculous amount.

Oh my god, so we can call Peter Andre a greasy emotional abuser, but I can't be honest about other celebs?!

Sarah Millican has my M&S dress and wore it in her first tv series, although she also wore trousers underneath it

was it Zoe Lucker? playing Tanya Turner?

Not read whole thread, but I used to have a Boden habit until I saw half my wardrobe featuring in the first series of Miranda.

Love her, but my style icon she ain't.

Help the Aged had a field day blush

I had a lovely coat from warehouse years ago and saw that blonde woman from footballers wives wearing it... the nasty one... she has been in a few things since then, name escapes me!
