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 saw a photo of Desmond Dekker in a cotton sweater just like this (circa. 1965) -  then there it was in a local shop; I had to buy it, but I suspect it looked better on our Des.

    • A strange coincidence Graham :-)

    • Yes Alan, and me being a dead ringer for old Desmond, too!

    • With not having a black shirt, in my collection, I spotted this semi cut away collar, double cuffed, extra slim fit, silk touch one, from Hawes and Curtis, who make a quality shirt. Purchase made easier, by a price tag of £19, brand new, with free delivery, I probably think this would make it on JP`s bargain buys thread............LOL.

    • Nice suit Alan !!

    • Cheers Andy :-)

    • Also decided to treat myself to a new mohair suit, well, I am worth it.....................Ha-ha-ha.

    • Very nice, Alan .... just looking at that suit takes me back a bit!
