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!

  • Not everyone's cup of tea Kai, but It would certainly be mine, being a staunch fan of the "Dolly Mixture" prints and stylish button-downs. Very nice rich blue too.... I hope it holds it's colour; but then it might fade nicely too.

    • The black one's kept it's colour for years, so I'm confident this one will, too, Graham.
  • "Bravo" Shirt, reduced to 17,90 GBP; the penny button down collar surely not everyone's cup, but I like it for everyday wear, with or without denim jacket. Already have a black pin dot one and it's good lasting quality.

    • A nice little number that Kai ;0)

    • Not keen on that collar, bit short for my taste but a fab pattern.

    • I like it Kai! Can imagine it looks great with a denim jacket.
    • Yes Harry and Ronnie; absolutely nothing to wear with a Blazer.

  • These great condition Jones "Mori" loafers from Ebay for £8.99 and a great quality white button down from Claudio 

    • That would be a Siena, I suppose!?

    • Yes Kai - it was my (long overdue) first shirt purchase from Claudio and it sure won't be the last. He was so helpful beforehand and the quality is second to none
