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!

  • Thursday, popped into JTG on a bday trip to Brighton for a couple of pieces. Even got a tie thrown in for free, which was nice :)

    • Good choices mate. I have 2 of their Raglan sleeve Harrys, and a beige version of their smock. All decent quality
    • Decent Harrington`s from JTG Slim, can`t make out the colour of yours from the pic, I got a beige one last year, it`s holding out well ;-)

    • It's brown Alan, trying to get out of the navy rut I was in for years. The scooter smock is grey. I was forced to buy that as I'd had my eye on it for a while and when I got to JTG, found out it was a limited run and the medium was the last one they had :)

    • Especially like the Harrington !

  • I have now got a pair of these. Once shortened, stepped and notched they will be perfect.

    • Looks nice, Gary!
    • Thanks Kai mate.

    • Bring back memories those Gary, I used to wear Farah, on the terraces, in the eighties, usually teamed up with a Fila roll neck or lacoste cardigan ;-)

    • You have just given me an idea for a new thread! Cheers Alan ;0)
