The Launch Of | The E - Shopping Site Of York Boutique Modelled By Yours Truly

Tuesday, July 1, 2014 / , , , , , , , , , ,


While I was growing up, I had a tough time looking for clothes to wear. I had a couple of "key pieces" that I would wear over and over again. Other than that, I didn't have other nice clothes to wear. That was until I discovered York Boutique when I was 14 which was previously located at Eastpoint Mall in Simei. Then, I bought diffrent kinds of basics from them. My blazer, jeans, denim skirt, leggings, formal dresses and many more. 

The company started out more than 20 years ago selling both clothes of small size to plus sized clothes. From year 2009 onwards, the team decided to focus on plus sized clothings. 

I remember feeling elated when I bought my first pair of jeans, denim skirt and dresses from York. York gave me a new sense of hope, I could wear prettier clothes after all. From my experience, I can be honest enough to tell you that their clothes are of very good quality. In fact, I still have some apparels I bought from them like 10 years ago in my closet. Still like brand new! It's quite amazing la. 

Fast forward 2 months ago, the York team contacted me and asked me if I would be interested to take on a modelling assignment for their new online store. Jumped straight at the opportunity and here are some photos! 

This is my favourite dress of their latest collection. It's not very thick, quite cooling material. I like the cutting as well. Very me. :P 

Here's a candid bucktooth shot of me. Lol Love this colour of the blouse. So bright and chirpy! 

You see the lady next to me (right) in the picture? That's Winna, the amazing woman behind York. It is truly an honour to meet the woman who has designed and manufactured the clothes that wore years ago. If not because of York, I probably wouldn't have had the chance to own my very first denim skirt. She's so fashionable ok! I am truly blessed to be given the opportunity to such an inspiring woman. She shared with me how it gives her a sense of fulfillment when plus sized girls walk into her store thinking that they'll never find anything their size and yet are able to walk out feeling happy about their new buy. 

With the team and the other models. 

Another one of my favourite tops is this fuschia pink flare sleeved chiffon top from York. 
Best part of it is that it is lightweight yet not sheer. I can so imagine pairing this with a long fishtail skirt for Hari Raya!  What do you think?

I thought I look surprisingly okay in this pair of jeans. If you notice, I'm a very girly girl because I prefer dresses and skirts to pants. I may consider experimenting with printed leggings/jeggings/trousers next time!
