The Society of Cool
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!
brilliant idea andy, design looks amazing, had a similar idea to give a CD as favours when we got married a couple of years ago but the missus picked some real shnyde tunes so i left it out.
good luck to you both on your big day.
That looks brilliant Andy good luck and congratulations on the big day .
Love the invite, Andy! Beautifully packaged!
Thanks for the comments guys. The feedback from the guests has been really good too.
smart bit of cloth that :)
Baby houndstooth/black contrasting trim trousers from Target (Australia) - RRP $45, I paid just over $18!! Target may be like Primark, but can't refuse the sales and bargains when Mod-ish clobber can be found! ;-) Picked up some (37) 1950's/60's vintage sewing patterns and a red vintage beauty case from one of my local antique dealers.
Just bought me a pair of white Levi 501's on Ebay for a steal at £8.99 (good nick too) :D chuffed to bits i am
I just bought a fantastic original vintage John Smedley Polo shirt from Mike Anderson of this here MG Manor.
Beautiful shirt, excellent condition and Mike is an absolute gent who wouldn't accept payment until I was happy with the goods. Check out his "The Detroit Locker" Facebook page.
