Dorothy Perkins Review ...and Martinis!

I thought Martinis would get your attention!

This is a dress I wore on Shawna and Misti's visit. It is from Dorothy Perkins, and I just love it. My first order consisted of this dress, and a paisley empire waist number that I will blog about at a later date.

I am generally a US size 20, but I was able to wear this UK size 22 (US size 18). The measurements did match up, so that is what I went with.

I love how this dress is unlike anything I have found in the US. It works great with leggings and boots, and will work in the Spring with flats as well.

On to the cocktails! The drink I am holding is called a Pineapple Upside Down Cake Martini. My friend Tracy introduced me to these a few weeks ago, and I am hooked.

Here is how ya do it:
One part vanilla vodka
4 parts pineapple juice,
Splash of grenadine

Shake with ice, and strain into a chilled martini glass with a maraschino cherry.
Several of these were consumed with my girls :)

Have a fabulous day



  1. This dress looks great on you! I really like the little bits and pieces of color. That drink sounds de-licious!!! I have a favorite, but it's name is too dirty to type (darn those dirty named delicious drinks!!).



Thank you for your comments, I read every one! If you have a moment, follow my blog as well :)
