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!

  • See the "Bargain" thread for details...

    • That is very smart, Kai. I have been looking for a navy blue or black barathea blazer myself, but can't find one in my size. Here's something you don't see every day - a button down inch-wide tie! I bought it at the same mid-century vintage shop that I got the beige Harrington from. Anyone else seen a tie like it?It has to be definitively mod item.

  • Got two of these today !

  • DNA Groove shirt again; unfortunately just the one in the middle, this being a pic of samples Signore De Rossi sent me beforehand... :-(

    • Lovely shirts, pity DNA never fit me right.

    • Great shirt Kai, I have that colour too ;-)
    • Good choice Kai, just ordered a shirt myself, unfortunately Claudio e-mailed me to apologise, that he no longer had the shirt in my size and it was mistakenly still on the web-site, I now have, the not so difficult job, of choosing another.......Ha-ha-ha :-)

    • Thanks boys, new arrivals just in, Alan! ;-)
  • Today from John Smedley outlet crew neck jumper with blue tipping around the cuff. Pumice in colour or should I say light grey to us ! Very pleased !

  • Wedding shoes finally! Loake Shoemakers in black high-shine leather. New and a bargain at 70€. Certainly not the kind of shoe I'd wear every day, but perfect for a black tie event (although I'll be wearing a knit tie in gold, haha).
