Happily joining the apocalypse crowd

I have a huge grin on my face seeing so many of you have fun with Angie's ensemble today. Some of you are already queens of this look. Some of you have secret stashes of draped black layers I didn't know about! Some of you are pushing yourself in a fun temporary direction. But it just looks like SO MUCH FUN and I'm in a great mood now.

I usually go more for the crisp, structured version of draped avant garde, rather than the muted chaos of the real post-apocalyptic look, but there are elements of it in my look, too. My Burning Man friends actually just went to a weekend-long Max Max-inspired campout in the desert, and the photos looked amazing.

I was in a rush this morning, but luckily, draped avant-garde layers are a staple of my closet. So here's my contribution: R13 crossover jeans, Allsaints ankle boots, Gap v-neck tee, Allsaints Drina cardigan (lemming!), Theyskens Theory biker jacket.

Bonus: you can see the results of my office decorating! I finally feel settled in, two years into the job. As you can see, my decor style is not post-apocalyptic in the least. My home's style is more modern minimalist with a lot of white, but this dreary office needed something to brighten it.

    Great black layers. Isn't fun how the ensemble today made everyone ' play'.
    I also like the yellow couch. :0)

    Yay! Was waiting to see your look and it doesn't disappoint. I think this is a great chance for people to mix fantasy with reality - a little can go a long way.

    I love it.

    It's early morning here and it's been so nice waking up to the (style) apocalypse.

    This might be my favorite day for looking at ensemble pics, ever. Love your boots, and it's kind of funny to imagine your UWP wreaking havoc on that happy IKEA-esque office. (It does look like a lovely work environment you've created, though!)

    You're clearly ready to do collapse of the grid in style ;)

    Gorgeous.  I think I have also evolved to your type of look with " crisp, structured version of draped avant garde" so I really relate to your outfits.  And funny but your home decor style is very much like mine:)  I love it when your WIW are taken in your home:)  Your office is lovely and that rug is fab.  Clearly you are a woman of great style.
