I'm definitely feeling androgyny, which is a look/style that I've always gravitated toward, even as a little girl wearing my dad's hunting flannels.  There's just something about a crisp pant and blazer that does it for me. Of course, with menswear its advised to provide contrast with feminine pieces, which I get. You don't want to look like drag king, but on the other hand, a woman in men's clothes head-to-toe can be kind of chic.  Here's a pic of me Summer 2011 in Ireland rocking all sorts of men's wear:

Now, I'm wearing women's clothes, but the styling here is all about menswear. Sure I could have balanced it out with a blouse as opposed to a shirt, or more jewelry, or maybe a long cardigan instead of a blazer. But, in my mind these pieces begged to be together, plus I always have a feminine item, two in fact... Yep that's right my breasts, they're quite prominent if you haven't noticed and they provide a feminine touch where ever they go.  That kind of sounds like my boobs are out and about touching people/things.  Well they're not, they're here with me behaving themselves, so there.  Yeah, this post kind of got away from me...
