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!

  • Been thriftstoring again. Really loved the material and details on this. Also that it is quite a bit longer than a normal blazer. That it only cost me about the equivalent of 5 gbp made it even better! ;)

    • Wish I could find something like that in the charity shops round my way...that's a stunner!

    • Fantadtic find Ronnie! Love how thrift shops can be great at times!

    • Indeed! I do a lot of shopping in thriftstores, especially when it comes to suits/blazers and records. One of the advantages of living in a not so big town where not that many others are into the same thing as you.

    • Like it !

    • Spot on Ronnie :-)

    • That's a real find
    • That looks wonderful, Ronnie.

    • Yes, surely one of my best vintagefinds ever! Looks brand new and unworn - and is a perfect fit for me too! Just posteda pic wearing it in the WAYWT-thread.
      Only sad thing is there was supposed to be a pair of trouser too according to the shop assistant, but she could not find them.

    • That looks fantastic Ronnie
