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!

  • Vintage 60s Black & White Striped Mod Dress Sz Aus 10 12 US 6 8

    1960s, monochrome, Mod dress with buckle detail

    • Love the quarter design !! nice dress

  • It's only ASOS but just got this coat in their sale. If it fits correctly then I think i'll be quite happy with it. Can't see it being worth the original price though.

    • Nice !

    • Nice to see you posting again, Karl! Lovely coat!

      It is worth the original price tag because Feraud - as in Louis Feraud - was an haute couture designer, just like his French fashion comrades-in-cloth, Yves Saint-Laurent and the late [inventor of the mini skirt] Andre Courreges. Sadly, they all have passed away - Courreges last month, in fact - but to keep people (the masses) buying their brand of clothing, it has become common these days for the head designers of these fashion houses going by simply dropping the first name in recognition of the existing quality. The same applied for [Christian] Dior and the "McQ" label for Alexander McQueen etc.

  • I know the small button down penny collar's not everyone's cup, but I've been wearing them for a more casual look on my Bravo shirts, which have an over all- right and comfy feel to them, for a few years now. Her's my newest, sky blue; to be worn with denim jackets or sports blazers.

    • Nice Kai .

    • Cheers Andy. Do have the same one in navy already.
  • Lord John tie purchased on Saturday.
