You may have noticed a new designer crush around these parts, namely if you spied this post, this post and this post, featuring some undeniably twirl-worthy frocks. My friends always tease me that my dress collection is flirting with hoarder territory, and they very well may be right, but when a designer like Sarah Lai comes along, it’s hard to say no.

Sarah reached out a few weeks ago, asking if I’d like to style a few of her dresses. Truth be told, it was this dress that sealed the deal. I love pieces that strike that beautiful balance between feminine and structured, whimsical and yet timeless, a feat that I think Sarah pulls off quite effortlessly. So in efforts to round out my selection from Sarah, seeing that the first several looks were much more playful, A-line cuts, I saved this shimmy dress for last. Because who doesn’t love a good mermaid flare moment?

  1. Love this dress!!!! Looks fantastic on you!! I want to order it. What size do you have? Just curious because I am definitely a size bigger than you. Is there a lot of stretch? I saw that it was polyester so I figured there would be some stretch.

  2. Hello! I am looking to order a Sara Lai dress and wanted to get your opinion on sizing. I am 5’5 and around 135lbs. I usually wear a 4 in most dresses but wanted to know if there was stretch to this? You seem petite so is it not a problem to be short?

    Thanks so much!
