Eight hundred bones is:
a) A sweet metal band out of South Jers.
b) The jumping-off price point for Novis, a new line of dresses designed and produced in NYC.
If you picked B, congrats. If you remain apprehensive about dropping nearly a G on a frock, we feel you. But hear us out.
For her solo debut, designer Jordana Warmflash (a Zac Posen, Peter Som, and Alice + Olivia alum) uses luxe fabrics, rich textures, and shipshape tailoring to hug figures while creating volume.
Work any room in a long-sleeve mini cut from emerald-striped tweed or a drop-waist dress with two-tiered ruffle hem. A candy-colored cap-sleeve confection with a pleated skirt is the most structured of the group, though it’s a monochromatic shift covered in winter branches that steals our heart.
Each piece is timeless, so you’ll have a knockout party dress for years to come.
Which is c) Priceless.
