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!

    • Nice photo !

    • Yes, that`s the one, cheers Gary, couldn`t think of it :-)

    • Very cute.

      Where's the mother?

    • She vacated the nest for an Eartha Kitt Slim, I`ll try and get a picture of her next time I visit the Brother-in-law ;-)

  • Went a bit shoe crazy today and treated myself, a pair of Loake Sahara dessies and a pair of Oxblood Loake Royals, guess that`s my shoe buying over for a while.....Ha-ha

    • Great pairs of shoes, Al! Once I finish my current Afterpay payments and layaways - early June - I will have to Afterpay a pair of Clarks dessies, I think. Perfect for the winter - when it won't rain! ;-)
    • Cheers Bec, these went on my credit card too, keep saying I`ll pay it off, but as soon as it`s almost finished, I see something else I like, so my creditors really love me....Ha-ha.

    • You're just "lucky" you don't have Afterpay in the UK... yet... then, you'll understand my "dilemma". There's always something I want. Fortunately, when I buy vintage, usually they are pieces that are one of a kind! ;-)

    • there the dogs. any chance of a photo of the other pair .as oxblood is my favourite colour of shoes
    • oops should have scrolled down a bit
