Christmas Naff And Holiday Tack … Please Tell Me Why?

Christmas Naff And Holiday Tack … Please Tell Me Why?

y Christmas Naff And Holiday Tack ... Please Tell Me Why?

 

Somebody please tell me why.

Why is it okay to wear little flashing Rudolph earrings at Christmas?

Why is it deemed acceptable to don a ‘Grandma special’ seasonal sweater, complete with little snow pom poms that jiggle when you walk?

Why do retailers think that paying $178 for a pair of the most naff Christmas wreath earrings is a fair price (see below)?

Yet, most of the seasonally-themed joys (sarcasm at its most heightened) that grace our department store shelves are quite cheap.  There is a reason for that – shall I say it – it’s because they are cheap…and I don’t mean in terms of currency.

And…if one more person buys me a Sexy Santa outfit, I will smile and ask for the receipt poison their egg nog.

The only time any adult should ever be seen wearing any of the items featured in the above picture (or their like) is at a costume party, or if he/she is a teacher – and then, it is only acceptable to wear during school hours.

Well..actually, I retract that statement.  Not entirely sure what I was thinking…I don’t think a teacher should rock up to school wearing a Sexy Santa outfit. Teachers should never wear a Sexy Santa costume, even if one of … I’m. Going. To. Stop. Typing. About. This. Now.

Having blasted all those who cherish their beloved holiday naffishness, I will admit to purchasing the most ridiculously daggy plastic Christmas decorations, including but not exclusive to, a pair of all singing, all dancing seasonally dressed penguins, a Santa hanging from a hot air balloon (hot air balloons?!?) that sings ‘Santa Claus is Coming To Town’ (for three times only, after which I will have removed batteries and shoved said Santa back violently into the box).

But…I HAVE KIDS!  Kids love tat and they expect it.  Grandma’s love tat (hasty generalisation here – sorry funky Grandparents) and they create it (again, generalisation – apologies)…and parents of aforementioned children (who love Christmas tat) have to decorate the house with naff holiday objects for a few weeks in December.  I’m okay with that, and I would go so far as to even say that I embrace it.

But, it does not mean we have to wear it.

Mrs Scrooge..signing out.

I’m very happy to say that I own almost all of the things featured in this weeks Polyvore Pick and Mix.

The Hoola Hoop clothing Vogue charcoal pencil skirt ($79AU) and both the black and red Greta ($69AU) tops hang in my stuffed-silly wardrobe, patiently waiting to be loved up.

We all know how much I adore Glamourflage’s Sultry Sophie lip and cheek stain ($19.95AU), so that HAD to be included in a Polyvore Pick and Mix about wardrobe staples.

Bettyshoe, of course, received a victorious mention with their stunning Poppy Quilted Cross Body Bag ($45AU) and Jeanie Black Peep Toe (yes, another pair) Stilettos ($45AU).

This set reflects what I wear for work, conferences, and anytime I have to play at being all grown up.  It’s absolutely not Mumsie, yet not quite Minx.  To me, it epitomises old Hollywood pin up style with an edge of contemporary sass.

For the complete rundown on all the items and prices featured in this week’s Polyvore set, follow the link below the picture.

Bettyshoe Bliss – The Top Gear Road Test for Betty’s shoes and bags

Bettyshoe Bliss – The Top Gear Road Test for Betty’s shoes and bags

bettyshoelogo Bettyshoe Bliss   The Top Gear Road Test for Bettys shoes and bags

Last month, I received an email from the lovely gals over at bettyshoe asking me if they could sponsor my blog and if I’d like to review their shoes.  Me, the shoe-aholic, the girl with high heel hopes, the chicklet with another house needed for all her bags, shoes, scarves and hats (never mind the family, we know which has precedence)…a good fit, you think?  I did.

So, here ’tis…The long awaited bettyshoe trial, review and loving up.

parcel 300x300 Bettyshoe Bliss   The Top Gear Road Test for Bettys shoes and bags

I can honestly say that I have put the Cleopatra Gold sandals (Billini), Shana Camel sandals (Billini) and the Carrie Gold Bag (Oxygen) through their serious paces.  I do believe that I have done for bettyshoe shoes and bags what Top Gear does for cars, in terms of truly giving them a proper workout.

Throughout the past month, I have paraded them to and from Mama Kat events, including school drop offs, pick ups, kinder excursions (yes, I even wore the Shana Camel sandals to a farm and they returned unscathed), family birthdays and pre-Christmas picnic celebrations.  I even kicked off my shiny red peep toe housework heels for the Cleopatra Gold sandals and waltzed around vacuuming, and I have to say, it was so much more comfortable.

In every case, both the Cleopatra sandals and the Shana Camel sandals met, and surpassed, my every task.  At first wearing, the top of the Shana Camel dented the top of my foot and I found it mildly uncomfortable to wear them for a whole day.  But on the second day, the leather had clearly stretched and I have literally worn them on every single hot day that we have had so far.

The Shana Camel sandal are perfect for any Mama Kat who wants to look more minx than mumsie.  I’ve worn them with rolled up jeans, long summery skirts, pin up – inspired swing dresses and black harem pants…my usual Mama Kat/Yoga chick gear.

shana camel 300x300 Bettyshoe Bliss   The Top Gear Road Test for Bettys shoes and bags

By now most of you will know that I despise feeling Mumsie.  I may have three children under 10, a man-child and a dog to care for.  I might be a work-from-home, country Mum but I do NOT, will NOT, ever be called, feel or attract the mumsie adjective.  But, dragging oneself, and the kidlets, through the usual routine of getting everyone dressed, fed and organised enough to get to school on time usually results in the Mum, aka me, looking suitable only for a complete Trinny and Susannah pity-driven overhaul.

Where once was a hastily pulled back, uneven ponytail, black haviana thongs (flip flops for our USA cousins), now lives stylish victory rolls and Shana Camel sandals.

Goodbye Mumsie, Hello Minx.  These shoes have become my instant transformation into the Land Of Looking Lush.

shana camel 2 300x300 Bettyshoe Bliss   The Top Gear Road Test for Bettys shoes and bags

While I do favour wearing the Shana Camel sandals during the day, I’m certain I could transfer them into an evening item.  Inspired by Zac Posen, Chloe and Rachel Comey, but without the hefty price tag, Shana Camel sandals are scrumptious, comfortable and sassy.

Then there was the shoe that shouts to the world ‘I-am-an-up-to-stuff-chick’ with every footfall; Cleopatra Gold. Maybe it’s because I have never been one for gold things (I’m traditionally a silver girl) and I’m experiencing the virginal high of first love, or maybe it’s because these shoes really are divinely inspired, but I am now a woman transformed.

cleo gold 300x300 Bettyshoe Bliss   The Top Gear Road Test for Bettys shoes and bags

Normally I would don platform peep toes, or 1950s inspired pin up heels when I’m galavanting about as Angelica Minx.  But this last blessed month, I’ve minxed my way through publicity, marketing and performance events with my Angelica hat on wearing these sandals. I can’t tell you what a relief it has been to be able to look sexy, be comfortable and not worry about falling on my ample backside when presented with the ridiculously steep set of stairs that burlesque performances always seem to be at the end of.  Flat shoes really are able to be as sexy (and a whole lot safer) as the highest of heels…and I can not believe I am really saying that.

cleo2 300x222 Bettyshoe Bliss   The Top Gear Road Test for Bettys shoes and bags

Inspired by Gucci (one of my personal favourites), Paul & Joe and Salvatore Ferragamo, I have worn bettyshoe’s Cleopatra Gold sandals with a high-waisted vintage black trouser suit, a 1940s black and cream wiggle dress and even a pair of recycled 1970s high-waisted black and grey wide leg flares.

When I step out into the world as Angelica Minx, my shoes get noticed.  I get comments on the yummy peep toes (I could keep small European countries in peep toes if asked), platforms and kitten heels that I wear.  When I know it’s going to be a long day of much standing around, I have worn ballet flats and chosen to draw the focus towards my upper wardrobe rather than my feet.

I didn’t do that with my Cleopatra sandals.  Instead, I dress around them; my focal point and the amount of positive comments I received was astounding.  Even my own mother, a self-confessed hater of strong metallic gold colours (I think she was scarred from the 80s), adored these sandals.

cg3 300x300 Bettyshoe Bliss   The Top Gear Road Test for Bettys shoes and bags

Teamed up with the Carrie Gold carry-all handbag and stepping out as Mama Kat or Minx was easy street.

The only thing that I love more than shoes is handbags…well, maybe I love them both the same.

cgandcleo Bettyshoe Bliss   The Top Gear Road Test for Bettys shoes and bags

I have about 40 bags of various shapes, designs, sizes and states of repair (of which most are currently on semi-permanent loan to my friends, in retirement through too much love or in storage) – I am truly a bag whore.  I have no particularly attraction to anything except it must be functional and unique.  I have previously favoured Alannah Hill, vintage op shop purchases and Etsy handbag creations, and steered clear of anything that might feature in a suburban shopping centre.

When I chose my first review order from bettyshoe, I wanted to pick a complete outfit.  Normally I would choose a bag first and match the shoe, but this time I did it the other way around.

Carrie Gold was made to wear with both Cleopatra Gold sandals and the Shana Camels.  It fits EVERYTHING (even my enormous Bliss water bottle) and has the perfect amount of pockets and zips.  Super spacious, stylish and swanky, the Carrie Gold handbag is so practical for any woman who likes to carry all the proper girly stuff.

I have dragged it everywhere with me, Minx and Mama Kat, and the only thing to let me down was the removable silver and gold initial bag charms which got wedged in between my car seat and the seat belt, and the fact that I now get asked to carry my husband’s/friend’s/kids/parents/everyone else’s keys, wallet and phone wherever I go.

cg4 286x300 Bettyshoe Bliss   The Top Gear Road Test for Bettys shoes and bags

Another fabulous price point at $119.95 and you’ve got a Gucci-inspired (yum), practical carry-all to suit any event.

All in all, I adored the frilly knickers off my new bag and shoe additions.

If this review seems one-sided, it is.  And, honest to Goddess, it is because I loved them.  Anything that keeps me feeling and looking sassed up while withstanding country mud and kids then has the ability to carry me through to Strutsville (ala hometown of Angelica Minx) is cheesy grin creating.

Do you think that I’m a tad happy ecstatic that Angelica Minx is now sponsored by bettyshoe … um…yes!

After a huge amount of ‘research’ (read wistful window shopping), I wrote “I must have what the have’s have” for all those chicklets who lust after designer shoes on a Kmart budget.  Be prepared for some open love screamed from the rooftops for Jimmy Choos, Christian Louboutin and Manolo Blahnik.

Wardrobe Personality Disorder: What I really look like in the morning

Wardrobe Personality Disorder: What I really look like in the morning

My name is Angelica Minx and I have Wardrobe Personality Disorder.

I am definitely not one of those women who jumps out of bed smelling like spring blooms and with breath reminiscent of delicious minty waves as she prances happily around in her daisy-fresh mood, ready to tackle her carefree world with her pristine prettified knot-free hair and creamy, even-toned skin.

To be honest, I think those types of women only exist in the imagination of very warped and ill-informed men and women and, in tampon ads.  But, of course, in a tampon ad, you’d need to also wake up wearing a teeny weeny bikini and be sharing your bed with a surfboard, a male Cosmo model or both.

6336867 s Wardrobe Personality Disorder: What I really look like in the morning

No, I hate to break the bubble that never resembled anyones reality but when I wake up my hair looks like a mower had rampant rough sex with a 70s shag pile carpet.  My skin resembles a patchwork quilt (focussing on the red tones), and I hope I don’t smell too bad but I can’t promise you delightful breath as I’m very fond of garlic over-indulgence.

I don’t even resemble the self portraits on this blog until at least midday.

I get up, walk around in a foul, sad-clown-face mood for the first ten minutes while I’m accepting the fact that another day has passed and Alexander Skaarsgard (Eric from True Blood) still doesn’t share my bed.  Then it’s the metaphorical death knoll for my kids as I bang a pan to wake them for school.  Enter crazy Mama Kat.

photo 1 20111105 212203 Wardrobe Personality Disorder: What I really look like in the morning

Hair goes up into a ponytail, headband on (if I’m feeling like I want to at least try to be pretty, then I’ll do a ponytail with a bow), Mama Kat clothes are pulled on (with a grimace thrown disdainfully towards my ‘civvies’ wardrobe – I despise ‘normal’ clothing like jeans and tracksuit pants) and thongs or sandals adorn my heel-loving feet.

I’m make-up free, my hair is tamed into Mumsie oblivion and I look like your backyard variety, box standard country chick with a gaggle of ragtag kids about to do a hasty school run.

Once the kids have been disposed of…ermm…dropped off at school and kinder, it’s back home, and here’s where the truth really kicks off…

I would like to tell you that I wouldn’t be seen dead in anything but genuine vintage. I would like to tell you that my entire wardrobe consists of raunchy pin up Betty Paige and Veronica Lake inspired attire.  I would like to tell you that I always do my washing up in red peep toe platform heels.

But…ladies, I’m sorry, I don’t.

My wardrobe can be separated into three distinct genres:

  1. Mama Kat (jeans, hoodies, tshirts, what my husband loves and considers ‘normal clothes’)
  2. Pin up/Rockabilly/Vintage (my favorites – lots of polka dots, Dita Von Teese inspired purchases and what you’ll mainly see on here)
  3. Hippie/Yoga (think Lululemon meets Ishka – when I want to feel free)
WARDRBOE 300x300 Wardrobe Personality Disorder: What I really look like in the morning

I spend equal amounts of time in the second two and as little amount of time as is humanly possible in the first section of clothing.  I can literally feel the creativity being sucked from each cell when I wear denim.  I abhor normal clothes and I hate blending in, which is why I’m always certain that my hair wears a coat of many colours.

Having said that, each post-school drop off starts the same as I transform out of Mama Kat and into a particularly selected level of Minxdom.  I’ll have a quick shower  and either do a side plait with rockabilly bangs, a light layer of ‘I’m-a-Mama-Kat-with-the-potential-to-be-a-Minx’ make-up (with the all important bright red lip stain), or I’ll go curl-crazy and straighten, colour, tone, primp, lush, and extend in an attempt to invoke my minxy self and banish the hoodie and denim wearing tendencies into the deepest recesses only worthy of inelegant and prosaic wardrobe items.

hippie mama kat 300x300 Wardrobe Personality Disorder: What I really look like in the morning

Unfortunately, while my kidlets are little, the true Minx only emerges sporadically and on occasions when she is called out to play.  Until then Mama Kat or Yoga Gal will win the war of the wardrobe.

You can never really take the Minx out of the Mama Kat though (pity you can’t take the dark circles out of the Mama Kat).

The nuffingly delicious mob over at Nuffnang have created a competition around the divine fashionista Sarah Jessica Parker’s new film, “I don’t know how she does it”…what do you win?  Two double passes to the premiere with the Goddess SJP herself in attendance…so, I’m in.  My task is to answer this question: 

“Like SJP, tell us how do you manage to juggle your life while still looking amazing and the funny side of it all”

Quite honestly, I’m not sure I ever manage to juggle my life and always look amazing but thanks to the wonders of Instagram filters, my readers think I do…so here goes.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Okay, I admit it.  I’ve fallen prey to a common female curse – a seriously fatal heel fetish.

In fact, as I’m writing this post, I’ve bought two more pairs of divine pointy delicious – a pair of red peep toe and black platform heels from facebook’s most lethal page “Ladies Pin Up, Rockabilly, Alternative Clothing, BUY SWAP SELL” .

I’m in lust with red shoes, of any variety.  I’ve always aspired to be Juliette Binoche from Chocalat.  That chick was living my dream – red heels with EVERY outfit, loved up with Johnny Depp aka sizzling musical gypsy and endless home made chocolate from her very own chocolate shop!

chocolat1 I would share my husband before sharing my shoes

Let me tell you that having a shoe-purchasing fetish isn’t a fabulous addiction to have when you live in the country, surrounded by mud, an unmade driveway, steep hills and young children.

Most of the women in my local village spend their life in and out of ‘day attire’ (otherwise known as jeans/tracksuits).  I don’t.  I have to be different, and void of common sense.

pin up heels 20111030 230844 300x209 I would share my husband before sharing my shoes

 

This is what I wore today for school and kindergarten drop off.  I look like a bit of a fool as most of the other Mum’s are wearing blundstones, runners or doing what I used to do – run around in bare feet (yay the hippies).  Everyone asks, “Oooo, you look nice, where are you going?”  It’s mildly embarressing when I have to say, “Um, nowhere, I’m going home to do the dishes”.  But, honestly, girls, who doesn’t agree that doing the housework in red polka-dotted pin up platform heels is the best the way to break the monotony?!

It would make so much more sense if I had chosen to stay in my Uggs, sandals or flats than choose to embark on a life filled with only high-heeled pleasure-pain.  But seriously, how sexy can you feel in ugg boots.  They might be deliciously warm, comfortable and easy to throw on for Mama Kat duties but they don’t exactly fill me with raunch-exuding sensations.

I think my fall off the sensible-shoe wagon started when I began packing for our recent house-moving escapades.  I opened up a suitcase with the idea to fill it up with some of my less popular clothes (yes, another addiction – and another post), only to be greeted with my ex-love affair from the 1990s…a pair of pristine white Christian Louboutin platform pumps.  A marriage break up, three children, a seriously downsized journalistic career, one seachange and two treechanges later  had resulted in my ‘too expensive to sell, too lovely to lose’ CL’s being packed away until such time that I deserved to wear them again.

I died a slow emotional death when I put away those shoes back in 2000.  The rest of the world was gearing up for Y2K and I was in mourning for the lack of Louboutin love.  It was the moment when I realised, and accepted, that at that point in my life, I had nowhere to wear them.  In fact, if I did, the country mud and unmade roads would either break them or my bones.

But now, she’s back – the Mama Kat has bought a one way ticket to Minxdom and the Christian Louboutin’s are back in the House of High Heel Heaven (aka my shoe collection).  Now I’m just waiting to be invited to something worthy of her reappearance (errrm…a film premiere featuring SJP, perhaps).

sexyshoes2 I would share my husband before sharing my shoes

While I’m waiting, the shoe addiction and collection keeps on growing.  I have bought 14 pairs of rockabilly, vintage and pin up heels in the past month.  I’m really glad my husband doesn’t read my blog because he would completely freak out if he knew that.  I am not sure how much longer I can hide my viral shoe collection…I have them in boxes underneath my wardrobe, my bed and under a pile of clothes at the back of my wardrobe.  There aren’t enough days in the year for me to wear all of them…okay, slight exaggeration but it’s getting close.  And this from a girl who spent three years walking around barefoot and free-spirited through every season…from whence a girl a woman did grow.

dots I would share my husband before sharing my shoes

I will say that I had forgotten how phenomenally painful wearing heels can be.  I went to the recent Problogger Event in Melbourne and spent the pre-drinks night in my lush new red velveteen peep toe heels and, during the day, I minxed around in my ultra super high vintage inspired cream peep toes.  I had beautiful feet, until I took them off.

En route to Problogger event…I knew they were going to attract attention and agony.

Two hours into the event and the swelling begins…

Five hours in…and the test of beauty versus agony is upon me.

 

whiteheelspart3 300x300 I would share my husband before sharing my shoes

 

It seems I wasn’t the only one who chose footwear beauty rather than sensible boring comfort.

IMG 3018 300x300 I would share my husband before sharing my shoes

 

Another Problogger attendees feet needed some freedom from the bindings of heel beauty – Nathalie’s feet from Easy Peasy Kids.

For now, I’m happy to accept the pain.  Every beautiful thing begets pain on some level.  Childbirth – Babies, Emotional Obstacles – Emotional Growth, Too Much Champagne – Hangover, Beautiful Heels – Swollen, Red, Ugly Feet.

The local post office people giggle at my daily parcels from Etsy, Ebay or Facebook and I’m now known as “the shoe girl who writes that saucy blog”.

Not a bad title, I suppose.  If you talking about a transformation from Mama Kat to Minx, I know how to do that.
