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!

    • Ha ha !  Al, Nearly five years ago I lost considerable weight for no apparent reason. Finished up having all sorts of tests at the hosp but happily no probs were discovered. Eventually regained some of the weight but not all had to replace a load of clothes. The upside  however was I packed up cigarettes as such and went on electric ciggies. One of the best things I've done  !

    • AoL are the best fitting whistle`s I`ve had Andy, though it depends on my physique at the time, as my weight Yo-yo`s, I can lose nearly two stone for no apparent reason, then put it back on quite quickly.

    • Do AoL offer any blazers other than boating blazers? Not in the web shop they dont...

    • Yes I planned to ask them well before our London trip in April, Alan. An alternative would be something by an italian label called Paoloni... though I would really like to try it on first, hence Adam...
    • They do seem to be rare in a 3 button Kai, all seem to be two button, yes, it could be worth asking AoL if they will sell just a navy jacket, I have asked them for a waistcoat to go with my pinstripe suit, which I wore in Glasgow, they said it was not a problem.

    • Yes I saw them. A plain navy three button seems hard to get hold of at the moment. Any suggestions, Alan?
    • The cord ones are real nice IMHO Scott, a nice alternative and more practical, than a suede blazer ;-)

    • They do cord blazers Kai and Velvet ones, which despite the Velvet, being a bit Austin Powers, I quite like them. Those definately are in the web-shop too.

    • Ah Yes, I remember. Wonder if they sell suit jackets seperately.
    • A cord or velvet offer -not what I'm looking for Kai
