Take me away in glitter and lace

There’s a romance to silver glitter that transcends childishness or frivolity; it’s a sliver of moonlight, a sprinkling of stars, twinkling lights at a carnival, the straps on a flapper girl’s shoe. It can somehow be eternally fantastical when it dusts the eyelids and the lips are bare, bringing to the wearer not just youth, but magic. Planet Blue’s Holiday 2011 look book may be titled White Hot (and that, it darn well is) but it’s the silvery glitter worn with sparkling rhinestone jewellery and soft powder-blue lace that first takes hold of you. It only gets more white-hot from there.

White lace is accessorised by strings of gold body jewellery, or a soft tan leather harness; there’s sunlight filtering through sheer netting, necklaces worn as headpieces. And in case you weren’t yet immersed in Holiday sentiment, model Sydney Roper gets draped in a cloak of silver shredded tinsel and plastered with a consolation of gold stars.

Some people's wardrobes are about a small selection of pieces that all fit within one aesthetic - Tania Braukamper isn't such a person. With a wardrobe that spans three different rooms, her approach to fashion is a mixture of current-season key pieces mixed with vintage finds she's sourced on innumerous shopping trips around the world's more cultured capitals. Despite a disparate approach to shopping, Tania is adamant that the key to mixing vintage with new season is to stick to key looks and colours that work for oneself. And it's a theory that she works into her writing for Fashionising.com, where she serves as the publication's Editor.
