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!

    As Spring's come early for us, no more Winter blues in sight, especially as we had an hour of snow a few weeks back. This is a photo somebody put up online of what it looked like at Federation Uni and NOT my backyard. Just to prove to you we don't keep kangaroos in our backyards...

    • These kangaroos - should they be out in the snow ?

    • When I saw that image on Google, I thought "Poor little things", but you'd be happy to know frames, it rarely snows in Ballarat! ;-)

    • Hmm. Here in England we never let our kangaroos go out in the snow.

    • Nice dresses MG, especially the top one:-)
