For Winter Weddings, capes are always a chic warm and dramatic way to go!
For the wedding party, make it a furry affair! Add touches of warmth throughout the entire party!
A touch of fur… faux or not is a great way to add luxury

With my birthday 5 days away, I’m thinking of ways to reinvent my style for the new year. I decided to dedicate this Wear it Wednesday to “Ways to Reinvent your Look” with hopes to inspire you as well as get some feedback from you. Be sure to share other ways you choose to reinvent your look if it’s not listed below.
Anytime I think about reinventing my look the first place I go to is my hair!
I think cutting your hair or changing the color can be so liberating and it will change your attitude and look instantly!
Some styles and colors I’ve considered are:
Every time I look at Tanika Ray‘s hair, I release the cut bug and want to continue on my hair growth journey.
Another way to reinvent your look is to focus on your skin. Taking care of your skin and creating a skin routine is one of the best things you can do for yourself. You older self will thank you!
Over the past 3 years I’ve become addicted to Chanel products for my daily facial routine. I will say, I do believe in using different moisturizers for different seasons and even day versus night. Taking care of your skin will definitely reinvent your look.
Also… I do believe in keeping my lips kissable! Be sure to try out my lip scrub and lip balm duo! Purchase by clicking HERE or on the photo!
Try a new hue….. step out the black box and try something new.
Simply by adding on the accessories can reinvent your look!
Lastly I think of releasing the makeup or trying something new with it. I’m not one to wear it but when I do, I try to keep it fresh. But how cool would it be to do something unexpected?!

Solange Knowles… one of my favorite stylista’s was married over the weekend and she did it in such a chic way!

She continued to reinvent and some of her well known looks are below. Who can forget the infamous grammy dress the year she was dating Puffy…
My second stylish reinvention fashionista that I adore is Solange! Looking at Solange style today is so inspirational. It’s reminiscent of her favorite icon Diana Ross but starting on the scene, Solange was more hippie chic.
She rebelled front the standard, cut all of her hair off, went natural and gained a mod style. Below are some of my favorite styles that reinvented her entire look. She has plenty of favs but since I’ve featured her before, I will try and show some of those looks not already featured.
