Midi dresses are always so feminine and sophisticated. But because this one in particular is a tartan midi dress, I decided I’d style it differently this time around. How about a little grunge fashion thrown into the mix? The 90s kid in me approves. Nirvana approves as well. Smells like teen spirit? Heck yeah! But since I’m far from a teen (because I’m an Olay woman now–I’m not a girl, already a woman ang drama ko LOL), I didn’t go all out with the grunge vibe. No boots, no ripped or oversized denim, no overload of studs and leather. I chose to wear my midi dress the way a grown 25-year-old woman torn between grunge and sophistication would. I couldn’t resist not wearing this with a backpack though. Hey, grown women CAN wear backpacks you know! I needed an excuse to bring mine out for a spin. This backpack’s original straps were actually too short on me when I first tried it at Furla. But because I really liked it, the motto “if there’s a will, there’s a way” prevailed. The saleslady got me this chain from Anteprima that I connected to my bag’s original straps. Do you see the chain? It matches my bag so well you can hardly notice it’s not part of the original design. Yay! You should’ve seen me trying to solve this problem. My determination was admirable. LOL!
