Spring 2023 - by the sea shore!
Why The Native Pig Face?
Apart from a name only a mother could love…If you’ve walked over a sand dune on the way for a swim on a summer’s day in Australia you may have noticed a succulent plant with a spectacular bright pink flower growing beside the path.
Chances are it was Carpobrotus glaucescens (also known as pigface, ice plant or angular sea fig). And you might be surprised to learn that not only is it native to Australia, but it is also an edible bushfood.
The red-purple fruit has a flavour described by some as like salty strawberry or kiwi fruit and by others as like salty apples. Its thick, fleshy leaves can also be eaten – raw or cooked (the roasted leaves may be used as a salt substitute) and the juice from the leaves can be used to soothe stings or burnt skin. The juice from the leaves can be mixed with water and used as a gargle for sore throats and mild bacterial infections of the mouth. The fruit has also been used as a laxative, although we probably don’t recommend that one! LOL
The Cocoon dress is architecturally designed to create a cocoon shape with each panel engineered to create a drape and fall for an interesting forgiving style. Mid length front and longer back along with the extended shoulder line completes this avant-garde look with dual pockets, it is functional not just pretty.
Guaranteed to feel and look as pretty as a spring garden this dress is fun, easy wear and a total show stopper. Wear with white sneakers or flats for a casual weekend look or heels or wedges for a garden wedding, lunch date or everything in between...even better this fabric is NO IRON so it travels like a dream
