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!

  • NB ** RESERVED For Mod Goddess **The Hullabaloo Discotheque Dance Book

    1. Ebay purchase - August 1967 Australian Home Journal with title page and article about Mary Quant and her husband, Alexander Plunkett-Greene. You may remember one of the photos in my Photo Album would have been taken the same day - I wish it cost me 25 cents!! ;-)
    2. 1960s, virgin wool, black, knee-length Mod dress with fold-over collar - one for the winter, I think...
    3. Etsy purchase: Rare 1960s NBC's Hullabaloo Discotheque Dance Book, published in 1966. Would be great alongside my 2 pai9rs of HiBrows gogo boots that I bought that would have been worn on the same show. Just check out this etsy listing. Pity these are too small...
  • First two weeks into Autumn, thought I'd treat myself to some knitwear courtesy of Alannah Hill and [my new method of payment] Afterpay...

    From last year, and for a very reduced price, a "By the Warm Fire" striped top

    2 "Modern Muse" tops - both in black and in pink. I am hoping the pink one is a rosy coloured hue, rather than baby pink. It'll go nicely with my 1960s baby pink, Mod vintage Norma Tullo suit. ;-)

    • May the walk-in wardrobe fill up steadily, haha! Like the striped one! ;-)
    • Oh it is, my friend! I haven't even unpacked the winter coats and MQ clobber yet! ;-)

  • As I move into my new digs next week - and now that I have a walk-in wardrobe - I couldn't resist buying a few items to celebrate!

    Hold or Rebeccah 3/3 - 1970 - Mod - Color Blocked - Sheath - Navy and White - by Bleeker Street

    RESERVED FOR REBECCAH 1960s Waldybag Handbag– 5 Compartment Accordion - Zippered Pocket with Red Interior – Gold Piping - Lid Snaps to Close

    Reserved *** Fabulous 1960s Kelly Green Knit Tennis Dress

    1. Blue/White 1960s Mod dress by Bleeker Street - etsy
    2. Black, scallop-detail 1960s Waldybag handbag, made in England - etsy
    3. Green/white 1960s Mod dress - etsy (on layaway from a seller in Melbourne to be picked up on the 29th)
    4. 1960s Mod, Prince of Wales check/White funnel collar and cuffs by Sears dress - (on layaway from a seller in Melbourne to be picked up on the 29th)

    I look forward to picking up the last two from the seller in Melbourne because I save $30 AUD in postage. However, half of that will go on my train fare to get to her place in the western suburbs! What an [unemployed] Mod does for her wardrobe... You must think I'm barmy! ;-)

    • The blue dress is gorgeous!
    • Yes, I agree with Kai MG. The blue dress looks simply superb amongst a quality selection.

    • Thanks Gary! It should be here any day now. Damn Public Holiday in Victoria today - for Melbourne, anyway! ;-)

    • Thanks Kai! I like Bleeker Street. You can usually find some neat Mod attire by them. This happens to be my second.

  • Recent purchases from DNA Groove, as well as a pair of shoes for Mrs A. from Mod Shoes.
