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!

  • A few bits from this week:

    SS knit from connection knitwear on fb

    Bass Weejuns 

    And some merc sta prest, I know they aren't a favourite but they always fit perfectly and best of all were cheap :) 

    • It`s important that they fit you individually well, Ben , whoever's favourite or not. As far as trousers are concerned, I´ve taken to wearing M&S tailored fit; just perfect for me! :-)

    • Knit looks smart
    • Not a fan of cardigans in that style and colour, they remind me of what my grandad or dad wore in the 70's a bit too retro looking if you know what I mean?  I think other colours would look better.

    • They all look good. Especially the Polo shirt !

    • Nice one Ben!
    • Thanks everyone, re colour I am eyeing up the mustard version too but I'm struggling to see space in my wardobe for it :D

  • DNA Groove again. Can't imagine wearing any other shirts at the moment, with the exception of Adam.

    • That is a very nice shirt, nice colour and collar.

      Have been buying a few from AOL recently but would prefer they put a single cuff on a button down shirt, I have spoken to them but they consider even a button down to be a dress style.

    • I like the fact that DNA Groove offer different cuff styles for button downs, Derek.
