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!

  • Bought from Secret Sales, a pair of black brogues nice rounded toe. Always a risk to buy shoes without seeing/trying  em on. But got away with it.. Luckily !

  • Bought a couple of Brooks Brothers Madras button-down shirts on Friday. 

    • I like em Andy:-)

  • Just ordered this: brand new, out-of-print book about the Small Faces' and The Who's [infmaous] tour of Australia and New Zealand in 1968 - "A Fortnight of Furore". I am looking forward to getting in the post and reading it. I've read so much about the book, but so little about the tour. The title - from what I've read about the tour so far - is completely justified! ;-)

    • I've heard it was shocking....they drank alcohol, stayed up late.....

  • A pair of Levi's Sta Prest strides in white:

    Found them on eBay, like new, pretty cheap. I have never seen Levi's Sta Prest with these kinds of pockets + there's no back pocket. Does anyone happen to know when they were probably made?

    • They look decent enough Kevin:-)

    • Thanks Alan!

    • Dark Blue needle cord Levi trucker:-)
