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!

  • Two new shirts by DNA Groove; first up a sky blue/claret striped Capri, the other an Aosta, plain white, but with a nice embossed striped structure.

    • Nice shirts Kai, I`ve been browsing through Claudio`s shirts, but there doesn`t seem to be much left, in my size :-(

    • Thanks Alan, not much left in my size either, at least since yesterday evening, haha!
    • That striped one is really nice, l wear ties with plain button down shirts as l only wear button downs.
    • I don't think these double button collars would look good done up, Carl.
    • Yeah your right there you couldn't wear a tie with that as it would need to be a flippin huge knot, also you wouldn't see the detail of the buttons.
    • Kai, nice shirts,

      would you ever wear a tie with them ? I have never been too sure about double button and how that would sit with a tie, 

    • No, I wouldn't, Derek. I do own a few knitted ones which I never wear; besides I think it was you who said Button downs and ties don't really match and I thought you had a point there.
    • Not me Kai,

      I can go either way, ties that is !! but on the italian style double button I would not wear a tie at all.

    • I am wearing a double button Capri, in pink gingham, with a tie, on the photo`s Paddy put on from Rhythm a Go-Go, from a personal point of view, I think it looks fine ;-)
