I left DC this week and made it safely back to Orlando, Florida to join my family for the holidays. Safe to say, it was an incredible semester living in the District and I can’t believe how much I learned about myself. It hit me this morning that I had to actually refer to my memories to relive the simple things I was so used to doing every day. I can no longer take a walk to the metro again or run up the stairs in our apartment building to see what a friend is up to. These realities that were my life for the past four months will only exist in my memories from now and it makes me sad. I miss it already.

Leaving DC scared me on a few levels. One, I didn’t want to come to terms with the fact that once we all left DC, we would probably never be together in one city ever again. Secondly, I was scared that I would start to disconnect from news and culture after I left the information capital. DC became a personal hub of creativity and information and I didn’t know how I would stay tuned in without the motivation of such a dynamic city. Even concerning matters related to style and street fashion. Orlando, in my opinion, is pretty dry when it comes to fashion.

But I found this today and I think it will help. Finally an online compilation of the biggest photo sites dedicated to street fashion. This site rocks and from what I can tell, is updated pretty often.

So far, no afros have come up but I’m sure there are plenty buried in the individual blogs.

That first one is (for sure) from the Sartorialist and I think the second one is too. He’s got incredible pictures.

And…the paragraphs about what you’ll miss about DC ring true with me.

I can’t believe you think she looks like me…but I’ll take it. 🙂

I echo what Marcus said. I miss you all and the city like hell.
