About a two-hour flight from New York City, Bermuda is the perfect tropical getaway for East Coasters. One of the best parts about Bermuda are the pink beaches, which are serene and beautiful. The weather averages are in the 80s during spring and summer months, and the temperature rarely drops below the 60s in the fall and winter. Our signature “Bermuda” clutch purse is inspired by Bermuda’s pink sandy beaches, framed by the clear blue waters and pastel-colored buildings.
Navy blue is elegant and sophisticated, yet subtle. It’s a classic tried-and-true staple that trends season after season. The rich deep blue complements just about any color. Pair navy with a variety of neutral hues for a casual look or switch it up with a splash of color (I love pairing navy with pink). I also like to wear navy with black accents sometimes, making for an effortlessly chic look for work.
Don’t just limit yourself to clothing – navy translates well with makeup too, putting a beauty spin on this timeless trend. I love to put a layer of navy eye-liner under black before I go out at night – it really makes your eyes pop. Also, adding NARS “Night Flight” shadow in the creases of your eyelids enhances a smokey eye when paired with the right grays.
How do you wear navy?

With the holidays behind us and winter weather still in full swing, we’re planning to “get outta dodge” and take a sunny trip somewhere soon. Our resort 2014 collection won’t be complete without both a Francesca Joy tote for the beach and shopping, as well as a coordinating York Design Co clutch to take out at night. The artist behind Francesca Joy is my good friend Elise, who works with me on collaborating new designs for the York Design Co x Francesca Joy line on our site. Her custom painted totes are to die for!
Elise and I are planning a college tour for this spring where we’ll be showcasing our designs at different universities – if you’d like us to drop by your school, please let us know! firstname.lastname@example.org
We hope you all have a wonderful time tonight. Have fun, be safe, and yes — wear the sparkles!
We have been so unbelievably blessed at York Design Co this year, and we can’t thank you all enough for your support, love, and friendship in our fabulous needlepoint adventures so far! We are really looking forward to a happy, healthy, and prosperous 2014. See you next year!
