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!

  • Mod about Melbourne yesterday, doing some much needed retail therapy - and any excuse to put some more stuff on layaway!

    First, the items I put on layaway...

    Revival brand "Billie Dove" dresses and matching tops; Revival brand "Mini Minor" dress and matching top, the only difference being the collar! All in the buy 2 get 3rd free sale! Bring on the summer - even if I have to wait halfway through January to pick them up!! ;-)

    Next stop, Clear It Factory Outlet in Fitzroy, Melbourne for some more retail therapy! This place is like a second home to me when it comes to buying clothing. Only difficulty is trying to find your size, such is the trap off all factory outlets. This time, Alannah Hill three piece ensemble, called "Light of My Life" in green and white from their - not her, anymore since she sold the name in August 2013 - Spring/Summer 2013-2014 campaign. Hope to order the matching bag also! Nice ensemble for this Aussie Xmas, I think ;-) RRP over $800 when these 3 pieces came out... factory outlet price $290!

    • Like this 3 piece a lot MG, not for myself, obviously......Ha-ha.

    • That green is v unusual - love it though Bec

  • Actually, I didn't buy this nice wool/cashmere overcoat - my wife bought it as an anniversary present. She tried to get me one of the Crombie-style topcoats with a breast pocket, but they don't make them in my size here. Gone are the days when I can afford tailor-made coats, but this one is very warm and very smart,....thanks to the missus!

    • Its one of the more unusual shower screens that I have come across Graham ha ha

    • LMAO Chris! In fact, I hung that coat in the bathroom to photograph it because the white tiles reflect the light. But yes, Iv'e seen steamier shower scenes too.

    • Well it worked out well with regards to the photo Graham. I suppose if you put it on in the shower it will save a small fortune in laundering bills ha ha

    • Warm, smart and functional Graham :-)

  • As far as mouse mats go SR., that's pretty cool mate ;-)
  • Sonny Rollins mouse mat lol
