Slowly, but surely the crisp and unmistakable smell of autumn grows stronger every day. The excitement of a new semester and budding, young minds is palpable. There's harvest moons, fashion collections, Pumpkin Juice, Butter Beer...September is a month ripe with anticipation and magic.

Hot days, cool nights, amorous crickets...the imminence of fall is positively burgeoning, but it's not quite here yet. So we wait like happy children enjoying the remains of the summer before the cold, harsh reality of that season,we dare not speak its name, returns. But that's later and I, for one, am living in the now. I'm also living in these things called, boyfriend jeans. They've been here for at least three years and the trend shows no signs of letting up. Women be loving their boyfriend jeans. Since I consider myself something of a fashion anthropologist, do you mind if we dissect boyfriend jeans a bit?

Boyfriend jeans. 

Awwww! He thinks I look so cute when I cover up my nubile body with his shapeless clothing! Yeah, those boyfriend jeans. But of course, they aren't his jeans. It's just a cutesy marketing term that invokes male approval to sell short, easy-fit jeans to women. For the record, he doesn't approve of them. In fact, he doesn't even know they exist.


"Harry picked the shining, silvery cloth off the floor. It was strange to the touch, like water woven into material.
 "It's an invisibility cloak," said Ron, a look of awe on his face. "I'm sure it is--try it on."
Harry threw the Cloak around his shoulders and Ron gave a yell. "It is! Look down!"
Harry looked down at his feet, but they were gone. He dashed to the mirror. Sure enough, his reflection looked back at him. Just his head suspended in midair, his body completely invisible. He pulled the Cloak over his head and his reflection vanished completely" (201, Rowling, J.K., Harry Potter And The Sorcerer's Stone).

Boyfriend jeans are the muggle term for invisibility jeans. Yes. Ladies, your boyfriend jeans are in fact cleverly disguised magical artifacts. I did some research. They are woven with the hair of a female demiguise which renders the wearer invisible to the opposite sex. Isn't that cool? Just think of the things we can accomplish without the male gaze. Like...we can sneak around Hogwarts at night and look at the books in the restricted section. Or walk down the street without getting harassed and catcalled by complete strangers.The possibilities are endless really.

Mr. Franzos and I went down to the Point State Park portal bridge to shoot these photos. He pointed the camera in the direction of my voice. I think they turned out pretty well considering he couldn't see me in my magic jeans. I wore a cross hatch print cardigan over a cool shirt from Mossimo, which I like because it looks like a rusty old garage rag. I topped off the Ann Taylor Loft invisibility jeans with a ponyhair leopard print belt because I love to complicate things by mixing prints and patterns together. This look is a variation of my weekend writing uniform. I added these gamine Chanel mary jane flats, these fantastic two-tone Ray-Ban sunnies and my every single day Prada purse. I like this purse because it's small yet my kindle fits inside, it's easy to clean if it gets dirty, and it also fits in my laptop backpack like a jettison pack. If you've been following this blog, you may have noticed that most of my outfit posts don't include handbags. This is because I have commitment issues with handbags in general, but I also take my Timbuk2 laptop backpack where ever I go. I chip away at my novel during any two spare moments that I can string together. My back pack and jettison purse combo ruins my outfits on a daily basis, but that's okay because I'm really more of shoe person anyway. Tell me about your adventures in invisibility jeans in the comments below!
