I just realized that I had forgotten to do this reveal on my blog. I purchased it for some time now, but must have slipped through my mind with all my other purchases lol. Anyhow, I have found the man who’s captured my heart – Roland Mouret, designer of the famous Galaxy, Titanium, and Moon dresses as worn by Dita, Jennifer, and VB respectively below.
He speaks to your body’s curves, his dresses exude high class with every tailored cut, women embody sensuality with their every move, and as the man says so himself, he dresses his women to be undressed. What I also love about his character is the surgeon in him. Monsieur Mouret’s father was a butcher. He has acquired the skills from him that gifted him with the precision of a surgeon, allowing him to have a keen eye on tailoring his dresses to perfection.
The first time I saw one of his dresses in person was on my friend’s mother at our graduation a little more than a year ago. She wore a black fitted dress with the most amazing square neckline I had ever seen. I later found out that it was by Roland Mouret after seeing it again on the Gossip Girl‘s Lily Van Der Woodsen who wore RM’s Myrtha dress. From that moment on, I knew that one day I would own as many RM dresses as I can possibly wear! lol

Then one day, I was fortunate enough to have picked up the Helena dress at a great price. This dress has a beautiful square/heart-shaped neck-line, strong shoulder 3/4 sleeves, and it’s also super comfy. I get a lot of compliments when I wear it. I generally like form-fitting styles (but not bandage tight like HLs), conservative, simple, well-tailored cuts, and something that brings the eye upward like a nice neck-line which I love about RM’s dresses. Somehow, he’s able to combine sexiness and formal attire, creating a sense of sensuality in his clothing that truly speak to my style.
