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 nice, Alan!

  • Not one to be put off shopping, let alone layaway during this crazy time. Two designer suits.

    I know for the second one it goes against my no single button "policy", but with this colour combo for a Lilli Ann suit - and a SIX MONTH layaywat, I couldn't resist! I also bought 4 brooches - two vintage, two from Isa Duval - "Alva" and "Poppy 2"

    ALVA Acrylic Brooch, a girl from the fifties with retro glasses

    Acrylic brooch POPPY 2! Checkered Jacket and White Turtle Neck.

    • Bec, that turqoise one is nice. we expect you to model them at some do when this crazy shit all sorts itself out.


    • I have it on layaway for six months, so you'll have to wait then! LOL! ;-)

    • I'm looking forward to wearing it all, but obviously not all at once!

      The two vintage brooches were from etsy and from two different US sellers, so I paid two different shipping rates? X

    • Wow! Love especially the yellow one!

    • Hopefully no alterations needed! :-P
