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!

  • Oscar Jacobsson blazer and vest, picked up at a outlet a few swedish miles from my hometown for the neat sum of around 130 gpb. Can be seen worn in the WAYWT-thread.

    • Looks good; not so practical for changing nappies, though! ;-)
    • Haha! Indeed Kai. Oddly enough I've actually taken to wearing suits, blazers etc more lately. Probably due to the fact that I spend most of my home time in jeans or slacks and a tee or polo because of the nappiechanging and feeding. It's a nice change to put something more formal on then, even if it's just for popping down to the grocerystore or for a quick coffee with a pal.

      Wonder if having a baby at home is what Peter Meaden was referring to when he coined that famous quote? ;)
    • Surely, Ronnie, haha. But the few difficult years will pass in no time, you'll see! :-)
    • I'm sure they will. And to be honest it's (so far at least) a lot less difficult than I expected. ;)
  • Thought I might share my latest purchase with you all

    1951 BSA Trials bike

    • That is a lovely bike! If I'd ever get something to complement the scooter it would surely be something like this. Or perhaps a tasteful caféracer.
    • (BSA)Birmingham small arms made great motor bikes and that is no exception, it's a lovely looking thing.
      The colour reminds me of Bianchi green, (road bikes) I'll stick with Vespa though ;-)
    • Thanks Motown, I am having the competition bits made to bring it up to works spec.

    • Not a motorbike fan, but that is beautiful Derek :-)
