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!

    • Have to admit they are class the greater majority of my dessies are from Pretty Green.

    • I still have a brand new pair of Loake Sahara,s, from a year ago, which are still in the box unworn, I just can,t wear my old Clarks out ;-)

    • Nice colour Andy, easy to match up with other stuff ;-)

    • Truth is Al, i've a few grey t-shirts and as you say will work well !

  • Just another little Afterpay shopping spree, except for the orange/yellow dress and vintage bag. The dress could be best described as early 1960s (not Mod) with a matching bag that would be best dated as 1980s/1990s but when coupled together make a great pair, with or without the detachable strap...

    • Very true. ;-)
