I'm with the band...?

In High School my musical exploits were short-lived and relatively painful (for those around me) thanks to an infatuation with the trumpet...trying to learn "God Save the Queen" so that I could play with the school band...and a gap between my front teeth which meant that (however hard I tried) I was always playing at a slightly different pitch to everyone else. It was, as they say, not meant to be.

Despite this rather off-putting experience I still have a soft spot for band uniforms...the epaulettes...the gold trim...the copious quantities of braiding and trim...the mood of which is nicely encapsulated in these Marionette Bootie socks. Just the thing to keep my feet happy this Fall...

    Poor you, with your gapped teeth! That's very funny.

    I can't imagine you with a gap in your teeth, but I can imagine you with a trumpet, in these socks. They're cool. You'd have to wear them with cropped trousers or a skirt.
