Whimsical Fashion Wanderings

Twenty-two-year-old Christchurch woman Jo and photographer partner Barnaby have begun a fashion blog in which the couple show off vintage finds against “picturesque” New Zealand landscapes. In late 2011 the blog partnered with local company Original Foods to produce artwork for their Christchurch Earthquake Appeal Red Velvet Cake; the proceeds of which will go toward the redevelopment of Christchurch’s parks and recreation facilities. Recently, the blog became a member of the curated Style Collective by Lucky Magazine, which describes the entries as “whimsical”, “with a hint of sailor-ness.” Jo grew up in South-East Asia and Brunei.
