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 really white/black white I saw it in the store, but just had to put a deposit on this for layaway when I was in Melbourne recently...

    UK designer Karen Millen, scalloped edge dress. My first - but not last - KM purchase! I've been since waiting March (as I explained to the cashier) - your Spring/Summer - for this, to be picked up and paid in full in October. :-D

    • Lovely dress Bec ;-)

    • Cheers Alan! Well, worth the wait! I promise!

    • Beautiful!
    • Danke Kai! I only wish KM UK delivered to Oz... I'd already have it by now!

    • Too right - that is a beautiful dress

    • Cheers Frames! Spring Racing season's coming up, so if I happen to go to Oak's Day in Melbourne - which will be the same as my birthday this year - in November, I'll have to wear it then! Monochrome fashion is order of the day...

    • That would be something to aim for; I've been told it's a really good meeting. Godolphin have some good horses this year, trained by John  O'Shea.

    • Looks fantastic!

    • Thanks Stan!
