What I bought today...

Just thought that I'd start this topic as nobody has [bothered?] to start it yet!

I was in one of my local charity shops today and bought these women's basket-weave, tassel loafers for only $8.50 AUD! Absolutely brill, to say the least! ;-) Now I can wear them with my new trousers from Sportscraft (see link below) and my Ben Sherman boating blazers! They were made by Australian shoe manufacturer Sandler, as part of their "Easy Steps" collection which still exists today. I think these shoes were an absolute find and would make excellent work and leisure (by that I mean dancing) shoes!

I also picked up two of my lay-aways. The first being two pairs of capris trousers - one pair in black and another in navy. Don't let the "capri" style fool you. They actually look like full-length trouser on me. I paid $105 AUD for each pair, instead of $150.

The second lay-away I picked up today was this lovely dress from Target that I purchased on sale a couple of months ago!

Happy shopping my Mod brothers and sisters! Look forward to reading and seeing what you've bought!

  • I was out and about today looking in some second hand shops for records and such and spotted this book for a quid. It looks quite good but who knows. Even if not I suppose the money is going to a good cause.

    • Mark Blake's a music journo; he's written a few books about bands - Pink Floyd is one. I think he wrote for Q magazine for a while, Looks like a good find.

    • Here's hoping Ernie. Will write a wee review once i have read it.

    • Yes, I've read it; was quite ok.

    • The phrase 'Damned with faint Praise ' comes to mind here Kai ha ha. I will give it a read anyway.

    • Haha well we all heard or read the story several times before, Chris, but it's really worth a read! 

  • Just received the fantastic 'Miss You So' by Tiny Topsy through the post today. The b side would be great too but unfortunately I do not like rock n roll flavoured R&B that much; the voice is still amazing right enough.

  • Just bought these

    • Looking good

    • They really look the business,very nice!
