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!

    • A quality pair of Mr Strauss there Harry. A class above the rest, very, very nice mate ;0)

    • I'm guessing they are not a boot cut Motown ? I only ask cos that's the cut i prefer and i'm waiting on a delivery from Levi !

    • No Andy they're a 1967 straight cut :-)

    • They look a deep blue with no slight fading. As far as i can make out to get a pair of Levi's bootcut style in a deep blue is to have em made at one of their flagship shops. In  Regent Street, a woman  who trained in Saville Row does em. They use a japanese denim which is the deepest shade of blue and the heaviest denim. Of course they offer all kinds of stitching etc. Of course there is a price to pay for made to measure Levi's and that is £500 !  Now i don't think i can justify that !!

  • Only a couple more (or are they in fact four?) winter staples, courtesy of Review Australia...

    The first "Francesca" with a detachable faux fur collar in Emerald green and black buttons, with 50% off RRP, and the second "Sherlock" POW check coat with detachable capelet, with a bonus of 20% off RRP, also... Each of them has at least a %0% wool content, so I'm :-) 

    • I like the green one!

    • ;-D Thanks!

      Review Australia do ship overseas, Kai. I don't know if I've ever said that on here before...

      I think Chris Cameron would like it too...

    • Wouldn't fit him....
