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!

  • Oscar Jacobsson blazer and vest, picked up at a outlet a few swedish miles from my hometown for the neat sum of around 130 gpb. Can be seen worn in the WAYWT-thread.

    • Looks good; not so practical for changing nappies, though! ;-)
  • Thought I might share my latest purchase with you all

    1951 BSA Trials bike

    • Not a motorbike fan, but that is beautiful Derek :-)

    • Alan, me neither really but its more of an investment, I am building two Lambretta's in my garage but this classic trials bike  needs nothing, may even have it in my office !

  • A new watch:

    Simply couldn't resist because of the Rolex Submariner look it has.

    • Looks good !

    • Cheers Andy!

    • Can`t go wrong with Seiko Kevin, Japanese watches are every bit as reliable, as Japanese cars mate, I`ve just bought my son, for his 21st birthday, a Seiko Automatic dress watch, which also has a manual winding facility too, it`s very nice, I`ll post a pic of it :-)
