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!

    • Very nice sir -wish they had been sent to me by mistake
    • Ha ha ! Like it Scott !

    • Nice cuffs, Andy!
    • Cheers Kai, I also have a button down collar with the same cuff.

  • A last one, and coincidentially my size exactly; at 75 GBP, how could I resist!?

    • My Karen Millen illustrated below is similar, but slightly dearer than £75, but it was the last one in an XS on The Iconic website, so I Afterpay-ed it. Halfway to paying it off now and wearing it today. ;-)

    • Nice wee jacket Kai. I had a Fred Perry one similar to that back in 1981. They came in cream or navy and I always preferred the navy one's.
    • Nice !!

    • Cheers Andy. Yes in fact there was a cream one around too, Chris, might have even prefered it, but obviously I grabbed the last one around. Saw nice navy ones in FP in Buchanan Galleries in June with a red, white and blue trimming, but they were about 200£... :-(
    • I might not go for the red, white, and blue trim thing Kai ha ha
