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!

    • No, right, you can't, Andy! ;-)
  • Bought this new jacket from e-bay Germany, Ralph Lauren seersucker in mint green, now I have 4 different colours, I also bought a Helly Hansen 3/4 coat which I will post a piccy soon.

    • Alan, I e-mailed them and Hildre replied saying they came up small for the size, so as I usually buy a 44 so I ordered a 46 and will get my tailor to lift the sleeves, I like to show a bit of cuff even on a summer jacket, he did it recently for me ona Gabicci jacket and it worked a treat.

    • Maybe Alan, I am now spending some happy hours on my laptop working out what I need to buy to go with it.

      Piccy ? not too sure about that Alan, maybe on my mannequin, never really liked having my picture taken especially without a number underneath. 

    • When ordring from Germany, I hope you made sure it's UK sizes...!?
    • Yes Kai. 56/46

    • Liking it a lot Derek !

    • Thanks Andy, appreciate it, I have a pair of green baracuta loafers which I have not worn a lot but maybe these may work together ?
