After it's absence from fashion and retail for at least seven years - does anyone else think that chocolate brown looks REALLY fresh right now?

I've been drawn to it this season in small doses. Always been drawn to bright cognac because it's more like "orange-lite" - and I like orange.

My new fashion puffer has chocolate brown piping, which I LOVE. It looks soooo much more interesting than black, to my eye.

I loved this Longchamp bag that my client bought last month - and want it too. It's stunning in person.

I haven't been interested in tall boots at all - until I saw them in dark brown.

How about you?
