Take a look around

A nice end of year present

During my frequent rounds through the various OMAS channels I came across something curious when looking at who followed the Twitter account. There was a listed follower. Of course I rifled through and couldn't find this mysterious follower. I then checked and found that it was sorsd. Funnily enough I've come across this store in a previous net surfing session and thought oooo this place seems nice. As you can see there are 95 people being followed, On Many a Street being one of them.

All I can say is that I'm honored by this. Even though this year has been quite patchy in terms of content and posting consistency Georgina and I have tried very hard to make this a priority in our free time and I think this is a good reflection of the work we've put in. The blog is listed up there with many other individuals that I look up to as inspiration, including but not limited to: Lawrence Schlossman of Sartorially Inclined and How To Talk to Girls at Parties, Izzy of The Dandy Project, Steve Salter of Style Salvage and publications such as Inventory and Details.

All I know is that we are on the on and up so you guys can expect more frequent posting and some newer things happening with On Many a Street in 2012.

Everywhere you look these days you're going to see at least one example of chunky soled footwear. Today on my excursion to the sales I saw many examples ranging from boots to regular dress shoes like these Vibergs.

On Many a Street Changing in 2012

First of all I'd like to sincerely apologise to all OMAS readers who have stuck and helped us go from strength to strength. It has been an very busy time whereby we've both started university, which you can imagine is both a very taxing and time consuming time. However I will not blame that on the lack of work that has gone into this blog.

Additionally there are a lot of exciting changes that are happening that you will all benefit from in the near future. The OMAS brand is going big and is going to reach you in new and exciting ways that I hope you'll all love. Nothing is completely set in stone as of yet but the foundations are being laid as we speak and I can assure you that you'll be hearing about OMAS very soon.

Once again Georgina and I are very sorry for our lack of posting but it's all for a good cause.

Thank you all

UAHHHHHH breathe

I've started a Foundation Diploma in fashion and as you can imagine it is more intense than probably planning your own wedding. I do love it though, it's just at times I can't think. I mean literally no thought goes through my head. I just have to remember that there's a ground beneath me and a future ahead of me. I never want to be the girl that doesn't get her work did, and I always want to bring ME into my work. This week for instance, I was placed in that limbo, where everyone was telling me I couldn't do this and couldn't be that. BULL! I will be what I want to be and do what it is I need to do constantly so somebody, anybody know's who I am but more importantly what I love. I know that means more work than even I could imagine handling (social life not excluded). I aim to do this by consistently incorporating my interests and varying styles and enhancing skills. 

Well really as my new project weeks starts, I've come to the realisation that I'm always going to be becoming, ever-evolving and recreating who I am. So it's okay not to be uniquely chained to one artistic medium, or not to know who you are right now in or out of fashion (speaking very personally) because just as you think your getting to know that person you would have matured right into another one. Embrace the change. Love the change. Display the change.

On my list - ROTM sand suede chukkas

These have just been put up for preorder on the Run of The Mill shop and I am stoked. Although I've been hell bent on getting a pair of Clarks desert boots I think these would survive a hell of a lot longer. Made in Italy, leather insole and a calfskin lining I am drooling and my wallet is aching for use.

These are for sure on my Christmas list. Next level shit!

Mark McNairy Womenswear SS12

this shit cray

A.P.C. SS12

Courtesy of Tres Bien Shop here we have a few images of A.P.C. Spring Summer collection for next year. Taken from a larger collection of garments I see subtle plays with camo, a recent trend making it new and interesting. Bags have definitely seen a resurgence and it's nice to see here a great colour combination using what looks like nylon with contrasting white stitching detail. There is also a few two button single breasted jackets competing for your affection and both look to have a great fit. Take a look below at some of my favourite pieces and check out Tres Bien for additional images
