Tracee Ellis Ross is my spirit animal. I love her style, her playfulness, her activism and her acting. I’ve always been a fan, so when I received a package in the mail from Ms. Ross, I died. She has a collection at JCPenney hitting stores on November 12th and I got a sneak peak at the goods. I call this the Tracee trench. It’s part of the collection and I love it. As soon as it’s online, I will update the link below but for now let me tell you a quick story.

When I first moved to LA, I was doing some freelance producing and had to interview Evan Ross for BET. Evan is Tracee’s younger brother who, if I remember correctly, had an album coming out then. I interviewed him for about 30 minutes and at the end he said to me: “You remind me so much of my sister, Tracee.” I pretended that I didn’t know exactly who he meant and said “Really, that’s sweet.” It was a very cool moment.

    I live in L.A. and have similar hair to yours. I love your cut and need to have mine done. Please let me know who in L.A. cuts your hair. Love the jacket. Love Tracee – I’ve spent time with her and I have to say… she is awesome.

    • Awesome! I bet she’s great! I can just tell! Re: hair – I go to Shai at Capella Salon for cut and Ezzy at Curls One on One at Salon Republic for highlights. Ezzy’s sister, Donatella cuts curly hair too and is also great! And I believe Shai’s assistant Janay also cuts now. Call them all and ask for rates…tell them you learned about them on here 🙂 xo

        BTW – you completely STOLE that AT&T commercial, girl. As soon as you step in frame it’s impossible to look anywhere else. Your beauty and inner energy truly shine… and the hair is slammin’.
