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!

  • Lovely!

    • Love John Simons shirts.  His website is rather poor though so I might just wait and go instore. 

    • ... but the fit is just great, Edward.

  • About 12... yes 12 "Birdcage" style umbrellas in various colours, so that I can colour coordinate my outfits accordingly... Maybe I'm just getting too excited for the winter already! ;-) Here's an example of my black one...

    • Nice Motown !

    • Thanks Andy :-)

    • I realise these will be a love em or hate em, bit I like then with a pair of Levis 1967's

    • Look nice for Summer; something I would imagine without socks... ;-)

    • I've always liked the look of the Weavers H. Defo a good looking, classic summer shoe but for me personally, when I've gone to pull the trigger on Clarks, it's been the Wallabee, the Desert or back in my soulie days the Polyveldts. What do you find the most appealing about the weavers H?
