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!

    • I agree you get to an age where you start to think I don't really care what  others  think ! The only people I personally need to impress are my family if they're ok then it's all good !

    • Cheers Derek; that's truly an honour coming from a smart original like you! :-) Apart from green, blue and pink (I guess...!?) what's the fourth colour?

    • Kai, I am always impressed and encouraged by many of the forum members, you have years ahead of you to enjoy your passion. 

      The other colour I have is a grey Haspel.

      I have always liked seersucker right from the 60's along with madras, but I think madras may be a bit too much for my age !
