Default when are we going to stop using brown?

Don't get me wrong... I love brown with every color............. but I know sadly, there will be a day when brown is 'out'.

when do you think that will be?

It's so funny this poll is out now. I went shopping the other day and was deteremined to get some clothes that weren't brown. That seems to be all that is out on the racks - brown and black. The lime greens and oranges just don't look good on me. What do I come home with? A brown tank top and brown/cream sundress!

Last year, lol.

I know I am in the minority here, but I do not like brown, for clothes, or for cards. JMO.

I think it dates to my childhood when my Aunt Ruth bought me some ugly, ugly brown oxfords with yellow shoelaces and I had to wear them. The other girls all had black and white saddle shoes. I have never gotten over it.

I have always loved brown and pink as a color combo. Brown is classic. It might lessen in popularity, but I don't think it's ever gonna go away.

I think brown is here to stay forever. It's a classic, right up there with black or navy.

I hope it never goes out of style again. I am a chocolate brown girl all the way; I don't look great in grey or black and I have been waiting over 20 years for brown to be in again. I hope the grey/pink combo of the 80's doesn't follow the current craze of warm tones like it followed the 70's.

I don't think it has ever or will ever go out of style. Taupes/beiges/tans/chocolate will go on forever, I hope.
I voted never. (other)

Yep! I voted for "other" because there wasn't a "never", especially when when you mix it with a pastel, like pretty in pink, barely banana......oohhhhhhh.

I said never too.....I love brown...it definitely is a key color for me-I use it as much as vanilla, black and white.
Love it!

Never, I hope. It's one of my favorite colors. Any shade of it.

As far as I'm concerned -- never! There are times when it's the only color that is right -- and I use it whenever I feel the need. That's not as often as I use black, but is more often than I use navy blue. It all depends on the image I'm using and the look I'm going for.... I've been known to use a fair amount of dark green, too!

I hope it will be never!!! I *love* brown and all of it's shades. For clothing, stamping, and everything else. It has all the business edge of black if it wants, but can also be soft, too.

Im a little lost...new around here. I tried asking my question in the Cuttlebug FAQ's but I think everyone went to sleep. Can anyone tell me if you can use Sizzix Simple Impressions Embossing Folders ( the gold ones) in the Cuttlebug machine? Thank You

I voted other as in never - even if it DID "go out of style" (which I can't see happening) I'd still use it!!

I don't mind it with other colors-what I don't like is the distressing everyting with it-looks muddled-but then I've always been a bright colors kind of girl.
