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!

  • Purchased a pair of cotton off white trousers by Brioni today, just for casual. Will wash them tomorrow and get them hemmed Monday. Check out the hand done button hole and stitching on the button...attention to detail and all that.

    • Very nice Harry, I have a pair of Gap khaki`s, quite similar in colour ;-)

    • Nice buy, Harryboy.

    • Very nice indeed, Harry!
    • Looks Great!

  • This is a poor picture. I just got four twin tipped polos. They aren't Fred Perry's, so the tips aren't contrasting colors. The material is nice though, they look fancy enough, and they were only ten dollars each, compared to the rather expensive Fred Perry's. So, I will be wearing these casually with jeans and desert boots.

    Side question: I've been wearing my polos all buttoned up, but I saw in Quadrophenia that Jimmy Cooper sometimes undid the top button, and I've been told that unbuttoning the top button is better. Preferences?

    • At ten dollars each you did well Stan !

    • That will tell once they've been washed!

    • That is  true Kai !

    • In they are still in shape afterwards then it's a bargain! ;-)
