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!

  • Not much of a suit guy (hides), but picked an AOL navy suit off Fleabay for £100, no changes needed as it was exactly my size, didn't even have to adjust the sleeves or inside leg...which is very rare for me.


    • Dave

      that looks a good buy for that money, well worth it I would say,

    • Cheers Derek and George.  Ebay might bot be the best place for sellers anymore but it's pretty good for buyers.

    • Looks smart and a bargain what more can you want
    • If it's as good as it looks in the photograph you've done very well !

    • Looks great Andy, doesn't look worn, fits like a glove, couldn't ask for more really. 

    • A right result Dave ! You gotta be well pleased !

    • Good price; and if it fits well, all the better! Know what you mean about not being a "suit guy"; I prefer combining blazers/jackets with different trousers...

    • Yep, I always feel that I'm dressed for a wedding if I wear one, which is ok...if you're at a wedding.

    • Verry dapper Dave. I don't know about weddings but you'll fit right in at a cool R&B or Soul night mate. Also avoid wearing it in the mosh pit at a Specials or The Beat gig though ;0)
