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!

  • I think we know each other well enough by now for me to be able to discose to you all that recently I have been a victim of a vicious attack, it's not something I am happy with and must admit has caused me some sleepless nights, I am hoping by telling you I can bring some closure to this position I am in, the worst thing about it I knew of this nasty little gang , if you have any suggestions of how to help me come to terms with this I would really appreciate it. Maybe some of you have been victims yourself and recognise their name.

    • Did you get a good look at any of them?

    • Graham, I did and gave it no thought, only afterwards, about a grand down !!

      Still on a brighter side I can go shopping.

    • Yes, I have been a victim at times too, Derek.

      Hope this helps! It's a tip from Australia's "Queen of Clean", Shannon Lush.

      "Put cloves, bay leaves, cedar flakes and lavender in a sachet. Cloves keep the silverfish away, bay leaves keep the tiny moths away, cedar keeps the big moths away and lavender helps deter other flying insects, such as mites, flies and fleas.

      Cedar flakes are available from craft stores. They also make them as timber cedar flowers."

      I have ordered 240 cedar balls, every hanger will have one, I will check out the cloves though.

    • I use cedar and had no problems but also put my knitwear in bags just incase.

  • Nice one MG question about the pedigree of that item! I saw an ad by Jump The Gun for their new lightweight scooter jacket in Scootering Magazine this month, and it just so happened that Urban Outfitters had a very similar item in stock, but reduced from $79 to a mere $29 in a sale. Great for the late spring/early summer here........I have to say it is superb quality ...well chuffed, me !!

  • Just in time for the start of Winter next week...

    A vintage, 1960s Mary Quant dress - yes, ANOTHER one - but this one was made for the American market for JC Penney's department store.

    • Very nice MG
    • Cheers Harry!
