Reader Request

Greetings and Happy Friday!

I received an email from Fashion Pad reader Kesha requesting the following:

Hello! I wanted to know if you could find me a dress similar to the one Estelle has on here in this picture taken at the premiere of Traitor in NYC. I love the style of this dress and would like to have it for a dinner party I'm attending. Thanks!

Well Keisha, I believe I can make it happen! I assume the dinner party you're attending will be pretty dressy, more like an after-five dress code. I like the structure of this dress and the chic Jane Jetson look. LOL! This is actually defined as a tulip hem but it can also be achieved by a fabric draping technique. I like the unique feel so much that I just might bless my closet with one of the below.

Alice and Olivia Wool Jersey Dress with Belt

Grey Stripe Drop Pocket Dress

A nicely tailored dress! This would be great for Kesha's dinner party or work.

Ted Baker Halter Pleast skirt Jersey Dress


Black Audri Dress by Lauren Conrad

Never thought I would post an item from the Lauren Conrad collection but, in this case, the side fabric draping gives this dress a similar look to Estelle's dress.
Hope this helps Kesha!


The first two are my favorites, this silhouette is slowly growing on me. I've been searching for a tulip skirt for a couple of weeks, but haven't found one that I like.
