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!

  • Just taken delivery of this wee beauty, courtesy of Signore de Rossi at DNA groove.

    • Very smart indeed Al. I have one very similar that I bought about ten years ago, although not from DNA. I will agree not to wear mine down to Troon, or up to Troon in your case ha ha

    • Ha-ha, cheers Chris, yes yours does look very similar, I need the put it with some trousers, shirt etc.....though I have lots of ideas and combinations in mind.

    • Simply beautiful; like the lining!

    • Like that Al, Very smart  what's the material ?

    • It's Moc suede Andy, as Claudio calls it, the look, feel and weight is indistinguishable from real goat suede, yet much more serviceable and won't be ruined if it get's wet, which is fine with me

    • That's very impressive Al, Where is it gonna get it's first public outing ?

    • Not sure yet Andy, I don't go out as much these days and I keep telling myself to stop buying clothes, as I have more than enough, but sadly, clothes are my weakness, I have tried to get help, therapy etc...but nothing works!!
