This beautifully lit tree, at the Camden Harbour Inn in Camden, Maine, seems the appropriate picture for a post wishing all of you readers a happy new year. May 2012 be big, bright, shining and wild for you and your loved ones. And in the spirit of sparkles and lights, I thought this Todd Oldham dress Via Moda Operandi would make a celebretory last BTotD for 2011.
I love the sequins, the bold design, the black outlines. Sometimes, you've gotta go big or go home, and in this dress you certainly can't go home. It's sort of like a great, tacky, beautiful Christmas light display: sure, you could use classy white lights like the picture above, but why would you when you could have a blow-up Santa in a trailer with colored bulbs surrounding him, like the one below on Gould Street in Camden?
Think about it.
Wishing you all the best from The Wilder Things.
Until next year,
