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!

    • If you're serious don't delay the sale has been on for some time !

  • These arrived a while ago but i forgot to post a pic.

  • Couple of recent purchases. A John Smedley second hand but still has the tickets on. It is not one that I would have bought at full price but not bad for messing around in for a fiver.  

    • Love that Chris, great colourway 

    • Cheers H. I like it as a  good enough top to wear on a nice day when I am not going anywhere special. For £5 it was a great buy but I would not wear it gping up to a club or anything.




    • Now that a few of us are getting on a bit and not as flexible in the neck area, I thought I'd be polite and rotate your image to get a better look Chris.

      A very smart casual look Chris, I would wear that with a nice pair of sta-prest or even a pair of white 501's on a summer day. A great buy mate ;0)


    • I was going to put it upside down for MG ( or any other Aussie Mods I suppose) Gary but thought I would compromise by going sideways. Now that you have put it the correct way it is definitely better ha ha. The good thing about Smedleya and other polos is that they are pretty flexible and can be worn  with anything apart firom a grass skirt and doc martens.

    • Much obliged, Christopher! I'm sure that would've helped me a great deal. ;-)

    • Any time at all Becs. I suppose its the thought that counts ha ha
