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!

    • Cheers Kai. The set itself certainly is well made and the leather pouch is also top quality. I'm happy with my purchase. 



    • Solingen town is famous for all things blade- and scissors- related.  Good choice indeed!

    • Beautiful!

    • Thanks Martin; like I said, works of art, this H&J stuff...

    • Beautiful works of art, these H&J jackets. I hope by the time we're in Linz it won't be too warm for a lines corduroy jacket! ;-)

    First haul of my summer...

    1960s, Mod, vintage dress, which I would wear as a coat, I guess, comes with its original "Crimplene" label

    Black/White Ben Sherman shirt from almost 10 years ago, bought for a steal. I remember it when it first came out and when I saved the money for it, it sold out... :-)

    2 pairs of "Hannah" mary janes from Princess Highway to coordinate with a couple of skirts I have

    • Thanks Al. It feels great to be back on here! I have missed the Forum so much.

    • Stunning stuff as usual, Bec. I take it you're save and sound down under...!?
