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!

    • Lovely pattern, Kai.


    • Thanks Martin; very light material, half lined. Perfect for Spring, if only there was somewhere to go... :-(

    • Very nice; saw them on Facebook recently.

    • Seems quite a few of us are now on the etsy bandwagon! ;-)

    • Regular customer there at Calle Modista for scarves and pocket squares; always great for stuff like vintage cufflinks or tie clips.

    • Yes, I am following our dear friend Leontine on there, but yet to purchase. I miss her being on here...

    • Yes, it seems out of the handful of us, you're the last one flying the Ladies flag here... :-( 

    • Very true Billy, but if I want it bad enough, I'll happily pay for it, even it's by layby/layaway!

      I often ask sellers who don't offer that as a payment method to do it and it works in my favour. Sometimes sellers don't even bother sending items to us here in Oz, but I often ask ask as well.


  • My second, but not last Jack Wills boating blazer for... 99p! I was the only bidder on this little number from eBay!
