You might have noticed by now: I'm not objective. I don't make the news, ma'am, and I don't report it either: not objectively. There are plenty of trends around at any given point but I tend to the plainest, safest, what I call 'Virgo style'. I read that once, as a teen, and it stuck: we Virgos favour neutral colours like black and tan, or black and navy. I said that recently to a model, for something we did with Next (which I haven't posted on! Just remembered!) and I guessed from how she dressed that she was a Virgo. Very simple, Kate Hepburn, androgynous.. she couldn't believe it. Sure enough. Another Virgo, our birthdays were days apart.
Anyway, yes, this dress: I love it. Black and midnight blue, all these interesting panels (you should see the back). It's probably my favourite in the Goodone/Topshop collection. Here Hedvig (Northern Light) wears it simple as possible: bare legs and Acne heels.
I don't believe it! It IS online! Click here. Bodycon panel dress in black and blue by Goodone (it's hard to make out the different colours, but they're there). Thank goodness, I thought it was just in the Oxford Street branch. It's £160.00 which isn't Primark, but it's not bad either for something so original.
p.s. Just found a great example of 'Virgo style' on my lovely friend pret a porter p's post: Azzaro FW 2010.
