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!

  • Arrived in the post from the UK - another Ben Sherman coat (I'm not apologising, and I really should count how many I have now) - black/off-white houndstooth - but this time 80% wool. Perfect excuse not to pass up, especially in this Winter here in Ballarat...

    Seller's photo, btw!

    • Eye catching ! But I like it especially the collar !

    • Nice indeed. Yes, take a couple of days off to count them, Bec! ;-)
    • Very nice MG; I use to love houndstooth, and once had a beautiful "puppytooth" suit made by a bespoke tailor in London -  but have to admit to having none in my wardrobe at present. I'm sure it will look and feel great on you.

  • Purchased a couple of these Kamakura shirts this evening, hope they turn out as good as they look, they also make an Ivy style OCBD with rear collar button and hook, if the first ones are ok I will order a couple of those.

    • Looked at them after a lot of good reviews from mainly Americans.  My concerns was sizing as there seemed to be a few variables and could be a nightmare if you need to return them.  They do look nice though.

    • Looks good Derek !

    • What cuffs do they have, Derek?
    • Kai, they have single button cuffs, I prefere that, bought some AOL shirts recently but they have double cuff and I dont really think b/d shirts should have cufflinks but could not find any others localy that had a decent collar, have a look at their website, they make some nice shirts http://kamakurashirts.com/ I am looking forward to getting the first two, pretty sure more will follow quickly !

    • Cheers Derek, will certainly have a closer look at that!
