Pop Quiz: Which of these do you agree with?

1. Champagne for taste not for tipsy

2. Rooftop bars are more fun than nightclubs

3. Wearing a great pair of heels brightens your mood 

If you answered yes to any of the above, then you have a flair for sophistication. 

Champagne: Have you ever seen the girls that have had to much to drink? You know the ones, shoes in one hand, hair a little messy, running mascara... Perhaps waking up with feelings of woe the following morning having picked up a less-than-desirable partner! Expectations of finding a suitable gentleman who respects his lady and returns calls can be little lost when one lets herself get a little too carried away with the champagnes. 

Sipping slowly and savouring the taste, whilst balancing on that fine line between having a little fun but not letting go of control, is an art form every lady most certainly benefits from mastering. 

Rooftop: The fresh air and mood lighting, combined with the sweeping views of, in my case, Brisbane city, sets a casual but classy tone whilst enjoying a Bollinger on the corner lounge. Laughing with the girls and enjoying the background music of the latest chill out acoustic, is the perfect way to spend a Saturday night.

Heels: Are the final touch for any great outfit, adding height and boosting confidence. There are certain shoe types and height limits one must abide by depending on what look they would like to portray. To keep things classy, as a general guide, the higher the heel DOES NOT mean the shorter the skirt. Also, if they are too high to walk in, opt for a lower heel first or one may look more like a baby foal trying to find their feet; being able to strut your stuff confidently yet elegantly is vital. 

Which is why here at Berries and Blush Australia we inspire elegance in all that we do.
