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!

    • Cheers SR, an unexpected purchase that turned out fine ;-)

    • That's really nice Alan mate.
    • Cheers Harry and SR, it wasn`t my original choice, as I was going for a yellow madras, but Capirari had sold out of that particular shirt and had no cloth left to make another, so I was offered this and as it was a bit exclusive and also my size, I suppose it had to be really ;-)

    • Nice that Alan
    • Cheers Mark, it wants to be, it wasn`t cheap....Ha-ha.

  • You have taken over from Kai, as the biggest clothing purchaser on the MG Bec and always nice gear too, just like Kai`s is ;-)

    • She's always been ahead of me, Alan, I'm sure! :-D
