The Ex-pectations Bib Dress, a Limited Edition floral print prairie dress which is designed by Brocarde. The dress features an exclusive piece of embroidery which showcases lyrics written by Brocarde.
The lyrics read:
“Fondly found, the ex of expectations,
It falls short, don’t stop longing to make it longer,
The devil does still dance if you’re standing on its toes.
Beating hard, the heart that once said to follow your head,
Always one step ahead, but never truly feeling it.
Idol tongues that are tied, with knots that are not really unspoken.
The crypt is inscribed with words far from cryptic,
Life is short, live it your way or nothing at all.
Your dreams, your aspirations, your diminished expectations,
The higher you reach, the further to fall…
But better to reach than go nowhere at all.”
The lyrics sit centre stage across the chest of the dress and are are accompanied by a stitched heart and star design, which is hand sketched, digitalised and then transformed into stitches by Brocarde. The design has been embroidered onto black duchess satin and edged with a floral frill trim.
The dress is Wednesday Addams meets Little House on the Prairie. It is beautifully finished with a frilled waistband and frilled sleeves. It fastens with an invisible zip up the back. The dress is a mini dress that falls mid thigh, depending on your height.
Sizing for this dress is based on Women’s U.K dress measurements, however it is a gender neutral garment and suitable for all who love it.
