I am not sure of you heard, but a month or two ago Matches Fashion declared that they were shutting down operations which is sad to see.

They have a house brand called Raey that I truly hope is able to branch off on its own and doesn’t disappear entirely.

Every season I have Raey pieces on my wishlist but never buy them because they gernally lean to, to pricey with the duties and exchange rate, but I always remain hopeful to find some in the secondhand market.

Anyway, everything on the site is on super sale now, and I was able to get a Raey sweatshirt dress that I have wanted for three years. It was 70% off.

It arrived today and I love it. I was unsure about the size since there were no exchanges or returns, but it fits well. I am tempted to grab one in a different colour before they all are gone.

That is my purchase of the week, and a pair of Adidas culotte style track pants that I found secondhand on Poshmark.

They arrived today as well and I didn’t realize that I needed a cropped pair of track pants in my wardrobe until now. Perfect for the hot months.

In case you missed it, I posted a romantic style capsule yesterday that has a 1930s influence.
