The Josephine embellished velvet midi dress by Dodo Bar Or (a spectacular Israeli designer that you’ve seen me wearing quite often over the past year), is a no-fail Hanukkah party dress. Rich black velvet, beautiful neckline and cuffs, and a length that lends itself really well to a hosiery-n-heels moment when the weather is frosty. I am also loving these floral-inspired sequin embellishments because Hanukkah is the Festival of Lights after all, and if you can’t sparkle a little bit now, then when?
The dress is an investment piece, for sure—but it’s one you can get miles out of, this year and in years to come. It also comes in burgundy, and navy and with a shape and length that are timeless, it will be welcome for any special family gathering, from dressier Thanksgiving meals, to New Year’s Eve.
