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 received this fantastic record through the post today. It is a record i have loved ever since I heard it but never thought I would be able to afford an original copy. To me it is up there with the best covers ever. Easily identifiable as the Sam Cooke track but so different. A true R&B classic.

    • Different, with a slower and more relaxed beat... A cool addition to you collection Chris ;0)

    • Yeah most definitely slower than the Sam Cooke version Gary. Both are fantastic tracks even although the original is really well known and mainstream. Cheers mate, it is certainly a treasured possession.

    • Lucky you!

    • Enjoy !!

    • Thanks Andy. My mod youth was '78 -'85 so I just missed out on JTQ, BNH, The Young Disciples and the Acid Jazz groove cartel... I have been collecting and catching up since 2000, also been meaning to see The JTQ at Ronnies down the 'Smoke'. Luckily they have now turned up on my doorstep so well chuffed. A nice, very early birthday treat from my better half ;0)

    • Was very lucky to attend one of JTQ's first german gigs in 1987. They went to kip at my frind Marcs place, who managed to convince Mr Taylor to shave off his newly grown beard... 

    • Well played your better half ! Doesn't matter when your youth was keep enjoying what you like and KTF !!!!!!!!!!!
