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!

    • Definitely a missed opprtunity Andy, but the pub was good ha ha

    • I got a pair of these several years ago and have worn them a lot. At the time I was still in my “any colour as long as it’s black” phase when it comes to footwear which I’ve long since evolved from. On reflection I wish I’d got them in navy suede and intend to get some when the black ones wear out but the bloody things are damn near indestructible. 

    • Rod,  I must confess these are only my second pair of Clark's dessies all my others are from PG. But as Kai, and indeed yourself have said Clarks, are out on their own for quality and i tend to agree they look to be indestructible. The reason i bought these are because black  gives  me plenty of choice re when pairing em up with whatever i plan to wear 

    • Yeah the black will go fine with dark jeans and just about any colour polo or whatever shirt you choose. Also will hide the dirt better than the traditional sand ones which need a bit more care and attention to avoid looking tatty. I’ve also heard good things about Astorflex dessies but haven’t tried them myself. Just remember those crepe soles are rubbish on wet pavements and will have you sliding around like a giraffe on ice if you’re not careful!

    • Don't think I'd go for any other desert boot. At the moment I'm wearing classic sand ones, with another new pair waiting in the box. As I wear them virtually every day, a pair lasts for about 1,5- 2 years. Might go for dark brown ones again next.

  • Lovely polo Andy, the "Dorset", is my fave Smedley, I have a Dark red one.

    • Cheers Al, delighted with both items. As i said to Kai, the Dorset as always been my favourite polo especially cos of the collar.

    • Spot on Andy -look the business in that -great colour 

    • Thanks Scott, i appreciate that. Nice one !
