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!

  • The off white from Atom Retro n the one below a Gabicci, I discovered for a song !!!!!!

    • I like the top one a lot Andy!

    • Thanks Stan !

    • Top one is the same design as The Cavern used to knock out in the 80s. I have this design on a long sleeve polo- an Escape to Victory England Football Top 

  • Spotted these two crew neck jumpers  in House  of Fraser. Very reasonable price so why not !

  • Harrington jackets used to have a proper collar if my memory from school days is correct. The photo looks like a wrap round collar ?  

    Have they changed the style ?? prefer the old version.

  • Some new cycling gloves, the old ones gave up the ghost after 30yrs, don't think these will last as long...but they look good :)
