I think I'm mostly plain and quite androgynous in my looks - contrasting to your style. I always love that look when you can't really tell if its men's or women's clothing. I prefer a simpler silhouette. I think it can be just as sexy as your 'wrong' look but in a different way. Both are not obvious though - so maybe not so different after all ! I'm not really into that 'pretty' thing - always feels odd on me. I remember the article in Vogue you mean - one woman had an old carpet bag that smelt of old animals and one had weird jewelry and another flowery jacket. I loved that. We all have stuff that has a story and makes us feels good. A bit of history to a piece always makes an outfit / home / garden etc. It makes me feel quite sad actually when people say they want to keep up with trends and high street - I wish only more people were as confident as you with styling their own look.
Anyway, things have been less glamorous at my end. I was really excited to see the first flower in our garden today !! Snowdrops peaking out under the tree !!
