“They filmed Lord of the Rings here,” were one of top things I overheard during my stay in New Zealand. I’ve never watched Lord of the Rings to be able understand what this meant or why it was important…that is, until I witnessed the surreal and mystical elements of what New Zealand nature has to offer. On the last day of my Kiwi adventures, I pulled together some Ruby pieces I borrowed from the showroom in lieu of collaborating with Foureyes. Foureyes is New Zealand’s leading street style blog composed by the talented Alex, Chin, Danny and Mino–each of whom I had spent the previous night dancing away during the Huffer party. I’m only noting the latter because I’m amazed at how we all were able to pull ourselves together for a 7 am wake up call only hours before these photos were taken. Given the opportunity to return, I may spend a few more days hanging out around all those beautiful trees. Heck, I’ll even drive out to Wellington. Thank you to the Foureyes boys for shooting these!
