Hallo Divas!<?xml:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:office" />
While chit-chatting on Facebook, I stumbled on a contest being sponsored by a company based in the Netherlands called Yoek. They were giving away a fabulous Panther Bagto like their Facebook page. I thought to myself; hmmm… Stuk van cake! For all my Divas with whom Dutch is truly a foreign language; that gem of a phrase means “Piece of cake!” For all my Prima Divas with whom Dutch is their primary language, my apologies in advance if there are any errors in my interpretation. <?xml:namespace prefix = v ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:vml" />I’m still tweaking my Dutch c/o Rosetta Stone.
Well, of course, I liked Yoek’s Facebook page… and not just because of the chance at winning a fabulous gift, but, after I visited their website I was immediately hooked! I mean, Yoek specializes in full figured fashions that are absolutely prachti! I especially love their colorful and sassy Frida print collection. (insert dramatic fainting motion) OMG!
But, before I set out to pillage the mall I had to thank Yoek for the wonderful gift. I immediately contacted them via email to express my gratitude for the lovely bag, and during our correspondence I asked if I could review one of their products. They said sure, and for me to pick an item of my choosing for the review. Of course I had my eye on their fabulous Frida dress a while back, so the choice was easy.
So, once again, I’m anxiously waiting for another lovely Yoek box to arrive with the dress. Once I received the dress I must say that it looked absolutely amazing! The dress is inspired by renowned Mexican artist Frida Kahlo. Its colorful prints are reminiscent of her strikingly beautiful paintings, while the rose print makes you think of her signature flower decorated hair.
I couldn’t wait to show off the Frida dress at an upcoming event, and by happenstance, I was invited to several events that were taking place a few days later. This was the perfect opportunity for me to showcase this gorgeous dress, and I had just the right accessories in mind to compliment it. I decided to pair it with a bold red belt and a colorful bauble necklace I scored from Charming Charlie
I love that Yoek offers very stylish fashion forward pieces for plus size divas like me! And, the Frida dress was not only eye catching, but the fit was perfect! Bravo!!!
Yoek brands their collection as both versatile and trendy and they’ve accomplished just that by creating pieces that compliment and accentuate the full figured woman with class and style.
Along with co-owner Chantal Smits, formermodel and founder of Yoek, Johanna Timmer, encourages women to “Feel good inside your own skin, and feel good in what you wear”.
Truly Inspiring words that apply to ALL women. Fabelachtig Yoek. Fabelachtig!!!
