Leader of the Band

I was never a band geek, but I always thought the uniforms were kind of cute. If I were in a marching band, I think I’d like to play the trumpet.


Sweater and belt, The Limited. Dress, Studio I. Shoes, Charles David. Bag, Franco Sarto. Ring, vintage.


These shoes would not be a good choice to cross a muddy field, though.

LOVELOVELOVELOVE those shoes. I have such a problem with peeptoe holes being too large and chafing my big toe...these tiny peeps would be PERFECT!

I'm amazed how versatile that cardigan has turned out to be!

I've said it once, I'll say it a thousand times: I have Wicked Witch Of The West levels of envy & coveting towards your shoes...

I've got outfit envy! Love the color combos and the unexpected quirkiness of it. Polished enough to wear to work but unique enough to express your personality. Definite winner on all fronts in my book. Are the shoes comfortable?

They are pretty comfy...I did wear them all day in training and then to a 3 hour rehearsal.

I was in band and I promise you the uniforms were awful: wool-polyester blend in Texas: hot, itchy, and smelly! Ew! But your jacket is just darling! In spite of the uniforms, marching band was super fun: well worth the 'band geek' stigma that it carried! :-)

Beautiful shoes, anything Art Nouveau inspired makes me swoon!

My best friend is in a marching band and I can assure you they never get such cute jackets. :)

What a gorgeous sweater and I love it paired with the red dress!

I was a band nerd and none of our uniforms were every that cute...I wish! Trumpet would definitely be the way to go...I always thought trumpet players were pretty cool!
