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!

  • Not that I need another Alannah Hill coat - via Afterpay - but... as it's Sunday and I have that Sunday Feeling, I bought "That Sunday Feeling" coat and at 90% wool, I'm happy. I plan on buying the blue also...

    • It's beautiful, Bec!

      A Northern Soul gal pal of mine from Brisbane bought one a couple of months back when she was in Melbourne for the Soul weekender because she was cold... and then promptly told me she wouldn't get a lot of wear out of it in Brisbane due to the warm climate... :-/ Nice to have a couple of hundred dollars spare and spend just like that, isn't it? ;-)
      I hope she will continue to wear it though...

      I will get the blue but I will pay off a few more of my other Afterpay items first...
  • A great blog post on the Monkey boot from 2009.

    Tuk the original makers no longer exist and the nearest you will get to the original Czech Republic army boot today, is the Grafter or Roamer.

  • Just picked up a pair of Monkey boots with winter in mind. I had a pair when I was a kid, anyone else got a pair?
    • I wear them all the time for work, I'm a postie and l hate the crappy footwear they supply now so ive worn these for the last 5 years. I also wear them in civilian life as well. The Airwear version look good but are expensive as well as the George Cox ones that fred Perry do. I don't see the point in leather soled monkey boots as they would be useless for climbing trees.
    • What ones did you go for H?
