One of my friends refuses to buy any black, while I shy away from brown and blue, in favour of black every time.
So when my boyfriend told me he had bought me a mainly-brown top from Urban Outtfitters as a present (he has been visiting his dad in Canada for the last week) I wasn't too keen to begin with.
However, a shopping trip yesterday resulted in not one, but two brown purchases. A fringed bag and a brown polka dot dress, that isn't the most flattering thing ever but was picked up for only £3 at a discount vintage store. I tried them on with the only other brown item I own; a pair of 4 year old boots, and to be honest... I think I could get used to this colour![Streetstyle images from stockholmstreetstyle and facehunter]
