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!

    • Very unusual Kai, but I like them a lot.

    • Yeah maybe something like badgers for the older generation, if you know what I mean... ;-)

    • I would say they are far more cool than the badgers from the 80s Kai. Maybe if they became mass produced and every second Mod wore them they could be viewed in a similar light, but I doubt that is going to happen.

    • I very much hope Claudio will NEVER go into mass production! ;-)

  • Review Australia "Tilda" jumper from eBay...

    Tilda Jumper

    • That looks very smart Andy. Could do with running an iron over it  right enough ha ha

    • Lol ! Chris, It had only just been delivered and unfolded at the time. However fair play to you as that's exactly what my wife said ! As i recall two mins later it had been pressed !!

    • I like those tops Andy, very Small Faces c.65. If the only thing it needed was a press you are laughing. I bought a really neat looking top on ebay a few weeks ago, an original crew neck effort from the 60s in great nick. It said medium on the label and I thought it should do me fine. Maybe it was a medium to late 60s sizing but by our standards i would put it as a small, so no joy.

    • Did you not get your money back Chris ? Funny you should mention the Small  Faces , as they're my favourite band of all time !!
