Introducing your new fashion and style think tank…
I’m a queer feminist literary scholar originally from Canada. My fashion inspirations range from the authentically eccentric (Isabella Blow, Marchesa Casati, Little Edie), to the timelessly classic (Coco Chanel, Dior couture), and I have a penchant for the dark and dramatic (Rick Owens, Demeulemeester, Givenchy). This year I started writing my PhD thesis on queer theory and the modernist author, and played Michelle Tea in Chapter 3 of Valencia the movie/s.

Terry LaFrazia is a bassist, social worker and former New Yorker currently wandering the streets of Oakland, CA. After years of being bombarded on a daily basis by the idiosyncratic, sometimes bizarre, and generally inspirational personal style of the residents of New York City, Terry is now adjusting to the somewhat different aesthetic of the residents of Northern California, many of whom appear to be dressed to climb a mountain at any given moment. Terry does love mountains, good coffee, and woo-woo spiritual stuff, so Northern California has presented many high points as well.
Terry values the gentlemanly in both style and character. Bowties, checked button-ups, and a well-cuffed pant are all wardrobe staples (though bowties feature less prominently than Terry would like—it can be hard to work those into an outfit!). As a gentleman in a lady’s body, Terry values fit and tailoring above all else, and will be sharing some thoughts on how to find menswear that looks good on the lady-bodied gentleman. Terry has passionate, conflicted feelings about layering and accessorizing, but as a Gemini, Terry has passionate, conflicted feeling about lots of things.
