Yoek dress review

I was recently contacted by the lovely people at Yoek who offered me the chance to review something from their collection. I had never heard of Yoek before they contacted me, they are a based in The Netherlands but there online shop ships to 22 different countries so it's worth checking to see if your country is one of them.
They have lots of different styles to choose from, from basics to party wear and they are releasing their Black label line on the 1st of December, this will be a special occasion wear in sizes 42-56 which is a uk 16-30 so lots of size options there which is always a great thing! I can't wait to see this collection and after being so happy with the dress i was sent to review i will defiantly be clicking onto the site on the 1st of december!
Once my dress was shipped i received it the next day which is a super speedy service and it came in the most beautiful packaging i have ever seen!

The dress came inside this beautiful box with a ribbon to keep it secure and soft tissue paper inside to protect the dress. I really like the effort Yoek go to with the presentation it really makes your purchase feel special.

Now onto the dress, I picked this dress to review i really love how simple it looks but believe me it is a beautiful dress. The dress is 99 euros which is about £79 which may seem a little expensive but it really is in my opinion worth every penny. I got this dress is a xl which is a 24/26 because i wanted a more loose fit. It is available from a uk size 16 to 34 which is great, i love to see plus size retailers doing a wide range of sizes and not just sticking to 18-24.
I decided to show you a dressed up and a more relaxed look for this dress. I think it looks great both ways and i do like to get my moneys worth when im buying dresses, so if a fancy dress can be dressed down too its a winner for me. I don't want a dress to sit in the wardrobe only to be worn for 1 or 2 special occasions especially when the dress is so nice.
So first up is my dressed up look



I wore the dress with my pearl necklace which i got from my nan many years ago and a jewelled headband from Matalan. My shoes are Irregular choice from a few years ago. I really love how this dress looks dressed up it doesn't need lots of extras to look really beautiful. The main part of the dress is a really soft stretch material it feels quite thick and expensive not like a thin jersey top that will loose its shape within a few weeks. The bottom of the dress is a nice quality lace which sits just below the knee on my 5 4'' frame.


Now onto my dressed down look, this is the sort of thing i would wear for a day out with the hubby.



For a more casual look i paired the dress with my Tesco leopard cardigan, my hair snood and purple tights. 
I really love this dress and i would love to see it in more colours too although black does go with everything. Although the dress might be more that you would usually pay it really is very versatile and i can say the sevice i received from Yoek was excellent too.
I'm really happy with the dress and can't wait to see what they bring to the black label collection. Thanks to Yoek for the dress and to you all for reading.


Which of the looks do you prefer?
Hope you all have a great week :)
