Anne Klein—An All Black Look from Work to Event

Anne Klein—An All Black Look from Work to Event

This is a sponsored post, but all opinions are my own!

I am a gal who loves colors. I mean bold colors! They just have an incredible power to make my eyes so happy. For the holiday seasons, I love to wear red, orange, blue, purple and green to all the gatherings and parties. But, I know there are a lot of people out there who are not super comfortable with all those vivid colors. They love to wear sleek black looks. I totally get it and I personally love black as well! It is a color forever in trend and easily looks fancy. So today, with help from Anne Klein, I am going to share with you my take on how to wear all black from work to any holiday event.

I have worked in the corporate world for many years, and now I am a full time teacher. The dress code at our school is not as strict as my previous companies, but we still need to wear nice work attire. For this work look, I paired this black velvet capelet sweater from Anne Klein with a pair of black bowie pants, and a black cashmere sweater underneath to keep me warm walking from my classroom to outside supervising students at recess. A pair of very comfy flats are a must for my work look since I am on my feet all day long teaching. To spice up the all black look, I used different accessories to create the vibe I wanted for that day.

It’s tough looking professional and sophisticated at the same time, and then being event/party/happy-hour drink ready when you leave the office after a long day. It’s way too annoying to carry a change of clothing and sometimes you just want to take your outfit from work to play. I know I am very exhausted most days after teaching 4-5 classes, so I really appreciate a piece of clothing that I can wear to work and also to any events without too much of a hassle.

This timeless black velvet capelet sweater top can be transitioned from office to most events with very little effort. It makes it the perfect topper to drape over any look for an instant chic finish. The velvet material has a sophisticated fancy vibe and the cut of this top is very classy as well. The loose shape is super great to hide our not so flattering tummy after a big meal. Don’t you just love that flowy feeling when you are walking? It is so effortlessly chic!

At my work, we are often asked to attend fundraising events, meet with parents, or attend staff gatherings during the holidays. This top is the perfect one to wear from work to so many types of events. For a more formal look, I just put my hair down, and change my lipstick to bright red. If I would like to add a modern and edgy vibe, I put on my leather skinny bowie pants. Once I take off my cashmere sweater underneath and swap to a black tank top I am almost ready for anything! Of course, I can’t forget to put away my day time accessories and put on my pearls, a lot of pearls!

I am pretty sure if you are a career women, you probably already have several Anne Klein pieces in your closet. I personally adore the Anne Klein brand. The clothing is so well made and all are so classy. My absolute favorite work dress is by Anne Klein. It’s a gorgeous poppy red. The body is fitted until the waist, then flows into an A-line, knee length skirt with pockets….pockets! It feels very professional and girly. Just like most of the dresses from this brand, the cut is always fitting yet very forgiving. It lends a very flattering silhouette. I get compliments all the time when I wear their dresses or this black top to work. All of Anne Klein’s clothes look expensive and professional, but are still stylish and funky. The prices are quite reasonable as well compared with other work wear brands. In fact, you can find both professional and trendy pieces from their line. They have quite a lot of chic causal choices as well.

If you are looking for timelessly chic and stylish pieces, Anne Klein is for sure a great brand to check it out. You probably will love and treasure each piece that you purchase, just like many ladies do because the compliments will come rolling in every time you wear them. Overall, Anne Klein has helped me build a timeless yet modern wardrobe that allows me to express and empower myself. So now, check out this universally flattering black velvet capelet at Macy’s and you can thank me later. 😉

How to Get Flawless Skin with At Home Microderm MD By Trophy skin #1

How to Get Flawless Skin with At Home Microderm MD By Trophy Skin

This is a sponsored post, but all opinions are my own.

I’m addicted to skin care… maybe because I never had great skin when I was in my 20s. Now, since I discovered ways that can make me look and feel even better than when I was younger, I seriously want more and hope my skin will look younger for years to come. 😉 I am constantly on the hunt for a great product to maintain, or improve, my skin condition.

I have heard a lot of good things about Microderm MD for a while. It’s basically an exfoliation system that is designed for home use. If you have been following me on Instagram, you probably already saw me talking and showing you how important all the exfoliating goodness is for your skin. I fully believe removing the dead cells on the surface of your skin is the key to letting all the great serums and creams get absorbed completely.

I have been reading reviews and watching youtube videos about this Microderm MD. Some users feel that it’s taken years off their facial appearance. If you know me, you will for sure know I am sold because of this. 😉 Anything that has anti-aging benefits is definitely on top of my wishlist.

What the heck is the Microderm MD?

Microderm MD is an exfoliation system that is designed for home use and it claims to get rid of age spots, discoloration, sun damage, blemishes, uneven skin texture, uneven skin tone, acne scars, fine lines, wrinkles, and enlarged pores. Boy, that sounds too good to be true! Can you imagine your skin without all of those issues? Your face will seriously look flawless! Yes, I NEED this machine in my life!!!

I will agree with most of you that my skin is in pretty good condition because I take a great care of it. But there are still some issues with my skin that you may not notice because the magical power of makeup. 😉 It is quite a challenge to my self-esteem to show you the real me without the cover of makeup and under a high definition lense. Anyway, here you go!

Ok, now you see me! I really would like to get rid of the discoloration, uneven skin texture, fine lines, and enlarged pores. I really hate those huge pores on my nose and my forehead. Below I am going to show you the machine and my initial experience using it.

How Microderm MD works

Here is what the machine looks like.

Based on the directions for this product:

1. Gently wash face.

I didn’t use any deep cleaning product or daily scrubbing gel because I have sensitive skin and I didn’t want to over do it.

2. Use the Microderm MD machine.

For best results, they recommend starting with Auto Mode for diamond tip microdermabrasion and using it 2-3 times per week. For sensitive skin, it may be more appropriate to use just 1-2 times per week. So for me, I used it once a week.

The Auto Mode:

When you push the start button all you need to do is watch the screen for instructions and listen for the beeps which mean it’s time to change the part of your face you’re working on.

Here is what the diamond tip looks like. The fine diamond tip makes the dead cells loose and then the machine sucks them in. You just put it on your face and move with the flow as the screen shows. You should not use it when you have makeup on!!! I’m just trying to show you how to use it. Soon you will see me really using it.;)

Here is the look with the filter. You will see some dead skin cells later after you use it. Guaranteed!

The machine comes with 100 filters to get you started.

Ok, here are some photos when I was actually using it. 😉

It is quite easy to use. Just plug in, remove the cap from the diamond tip, turn to auto and then follow the screen. It only took about 5 minutes to get my whole face, neck and upper chest done. This is the photo I took right after. I can feel the dead skin cell dust on my face. 😉

How to Get Flawless Skin with At Home Microderm MD By Trophy skin

I have seen a lot of videos that show how much dead skin cells piled up on the black filter after using it. I do daily scrubbing and twice a week exfoliating, so I thought probably there was nothing on the filter. But I was wrong.

Yuck! I dropped the filter and lost some of the dead skin piles on the it. Now you can see side by side of a brand new filter with the used one.

3. Re-wash my face to remove the dead skin cells that have been exfoliated.

I used cold water to cool down my skin, it was quite red, as it should be for a great result. Then I added one toner.

4. Moisturize my face with night serum and cream.

Once microdermabrasion has removed the top layer of dead skin, I had much better results from my skincare products because now they are actually being absorbed by my skin. The biggest result I have seen so far is all the good serums and creams I have been using for a long time are actually not just settling on my skin. They are absorbed very fast into my skin. It feels like my skin finally got its food all in its mouth. I do notice makeup applies easier and more flawlessly as well.

I will continue to use it for 4 to 6 weeks as it claims you see the best result after that time period and I will share with you again! So stay tuned!
