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!

  • Now that's organised! If I was able to fund [and build] a house of my dreams, that's given me more inspiration Derek! Cheers!

  • You guys are too kind, I did have my eye on the larger spare bedroom but this will do , for now.

    With the new wallpaper, silk emulsion and all the racking, £350, now that's not a lot, is it ?

    I picked up the corner unit off ebay for £25, nobody wants them any more, but I did.

  • You're own little slice of Heaven Derek, looks great :-)

    • Thanks Motown, I enjoy it, it's a passion we all have, but with my past it's as close as I will ever get to heaven !

  • Chrome racking.

    Well I have been getting on with my walk in wardrobe/dressing room and if any of you are considering the same let me recommend Trade systems in Kingston on Thames, they are suppliers to the trade but have no problem in supplying retail, most helpful and a huge saving on other retail shop fitting companies, I have had a few days off to paint and paper so was keen to get at least some of my schmutter in there, so easy to do and I am pleased with how far I have got, still more to do but at least getting there.

    • Looks excellent Derek !!

    • Great little set-up there Derek :-)

    • Andy,Alan, thanks a lot.

    • I'm not jealous at all. ;o)

    • And i thought having three wardrobes was pushing it :D, looks fantastic, would love something like that.
