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!

    • Very nice -love it .

    • Cheers Scott, I am very pleased with it.

    • Very smart indeed Al. I have one very similar that I bought about ten years ago, although not from DNA. I will agree not to wear mine down to Troon, or up to Troon in your case ha ha

    • That's a belter Chris -love it 

      would have been a right laugh if you'd racked up at Troon and plunked yourself down next to Al.

      im always aware when I wear blue pinstripe to a do that it could end up looking like a bank manager convention .




    • Cheers Scott. As far as I can recall that has not happened to me so far although I do recall going around with lots of other Mods on our scooters in the early 80s and they all turned with with these US army parkas, which was the exact same as I was wearing ha ha
