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!

    • SR

      here they are , 


    • Very nice. Summer weather is suggesting itself to me?
    • Maybe Derek ? The  thing I've always noticed is if a fella wears shoes a tad out of the norm ie Blue or green or even two tone you always seem to get a flash ******* glance from somebody ! I think it's cos they've not style or guts to pull it off !

    • Andy, probably right but only ever from some sad men , never women.

    • Absolutely Derek !

    • That's beautiful, Derek. I like patch pockets with flaps!

    • Thanks Kai, I too like that set up, I have seen your posts wearing that style and it always looks good on you.

      I find I am wearing more jacket's and trousers rather  than the more formal look I have been wearing, I guess as I have passed pensionable age I do what I want.
