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!

    • I have not bought any clothing for ages, simply never have time to wear anything but work clothes and pyjamas these days :-(

    • That's tough, Alan. But I see you attending the occasional do on FB...?

    • Yes, Kai few and far between sadly, work is wearing me out, I have had enough to be honest, do not think it will be long before I retire.

    • Hope you have some time off at Christmas Alan. A few days with family can make all the difference. 

    • Thankfully yes SR, the good thing about my current job, is, plenty of holidays, I work in a school term time only, which is worth it's weight in gold, my problem is, I suffer from osteo arthritis in the neck and thoracic spine, so I never get more than 4 hours sleep at any one time, as laying down eventually brings pain, then of course I am up at 05:00am for work, which involves lifting and other physical effort. Moving and renovating a 250 year cottage has took it out of me too, at 56 years old I need to accept I am not 26 I think SR.

    • Hope it works out fine, Alan!

    • Nice for the summer Kai.

    • Great, Kai. Is it linen?
