Lonely Hearts Patchwork Dress in the new black and white floral. Image/Area 51.

Hey so that was the longest title of all time, but my post-Sydney-running brain combined with the absolutely abysmal cold rainy Auckland weather has given me blog-post-title block.

As you have probably already gathered, Lonely Hearts has released a couple of black and white floral pieces for high Winter that are right up my alley. Firstly, they’ve recut their infamous Patchwork dress in the new fabric. I own this dress in two other fabrics already and it is my go to. It’s literally one of the most easy things to wear – it’s supremely comfortable. Secondly, the ‘Easy’ pant: a drawstring, light pair of pants that feel like pyjamas but look a million bucks. Supreme casualwear. There are a few other dresses and things in this new fabric but the two mentioned are my favourites. All of the pieces are available at Area 51 (dress here, pants here) online and instore from yesterday, so check ‘em out.

In related news, Lonely Hearts has also (as of just over a week ago) opened up shop within The Department Store. They’re on Level 2, just next to Lucy and the Powder Room, so you can get your nails done and shop for lingerie at the same time. Marvellous.
