I’ve been travelling so much lately, that the need for a a good basic wardrobe has become more and more pressing. There are so many amazing coats and bags in my closet, but I simply can’t fit them all in my suitcase. Of course I could, if I would travel with three suitcases and an assistant, but that’s not exactly my lifestyle.
What it comes down to, I am in the never ending pursuit of finding the perfect basics, ‘my uniform’ really,
a wardrobe that is easy to combine and fits into my life, whether I am traveling, working in the office or going for dinner.
I love pairing silk and denim for that matter, it’s the perfect mix of elegant and casual, suitable for any occasion.
My latest find is this satin-silk blouse by Raey, the label created by MatchesFashion.
I had noticed this crew-neck type shape a long time ago on Giorgia Tordini, I admired the flowy shape and found the botton-less front especially elegant, I didn’t know where to find it at the time though.
Back to this blouse by Raey, it’s fabulous actually, it falls just right (I downsized to UK 8 by the way), it has a pretty back detail with a slit that won’t expose your bra, and the sleeves have just the right amount of extra length. I got mine in black and ivory, a new wardrobe staple made in the UK.

I don’t travel often but when i do be sure that i’m gonna take all my wardrobe (well almost) !! but i like the idea of finding the perfect basics, that way you can have options without over-packing !! The blouse is beautiful so simple and chic i love it 🙂
Thank you Aya ! I would love to take more wardrobe with me, I just found it to be overwhelming to have so much stiff. But that leads me also to my next project, which is to clean out my closet, haha.
I love basics that aren’t basic…the open back makes this blouse special. Looks like you are off to a good start….
thanks, yes the back detail is so good, but it’s still not too open, so you can wear it with a bra or without
This blouse looks so good on you! I love a classic silk shirt, but have been looking for a more original and buttonless version. This one ticks all the boxes – it is simply beautiful.
Thanks !! Yes same here, I thought it was a lucky find, it’s a nice silk too.
