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!

    • Yes, like the top one Andy, it`s a bit like the one, that the dude playing Marriot had on, last night at the  "All or Nothing" musical. Which I thought was truly excellent buy the way Kai ;-)

    • Cheers Al, A while back Art Gallery, were selling the Marriott one in three different colours as I remember. The blue was the first to sell out and I have that actually I bought all three but the Pretty Green, is far superior To be honest i'm equally as happy with the Smedley although you can't see it on the photograph it has tipping around the cuffs. Glad you enjoyed AON, I've seen it four times and that's nothing compared to some fans !!

  • New trousers from Modclothin, Nottingham; a long wait, as usual, but again well worth it!

    • They look pretty neat mate. Could you post a snap of the full length of them from the front ?
    • Here's some more, Chris

    • Cheers Kai, they look extremely smart.
    • Very nice those Kai, didn`t know you had ordered two pairs.

    • Actually I didn't, Alan. Must have to do with the light...!?
    • They look like two different colours in their respective photo`s Kai

  • Thinking of getting myself up to Smithers Jones in Paisley to have a look at their Art Gallery tops .Unfortunately i wont - because they have called it a day - beaten all ends up by the power of the click .

    Feel a bit guilty myself - spent more than a few quid in there -including on  a Relco shirt i hate ! -----but could have done more - i encourage everybody to give their local shop a turn ,

    Dees in Glasgow will be getting more of my pocket money from now on
