Tracee Ellis Ross has humbly proven herself to be the QUEEN of style, grace and life advice. Subscribing to her YouTube channel has opened my mind to so much. She seems so at peace while doing so. It’s kind of like the questions and comments allow her time for reflection for herself. I find that so dope because it’s very rare for a person of such status to value a fan’s time let alone want to personally connect with them.
If you’re into centering yourself and absorbing positive energy, I most definitely recommend you subscribe as well. Her transparent approach to explaining ways to control your destiny is amazing.
I’ll let you in on the hidden jewels that has inspired and molded this fabulous being:
💎Being awake and aware
💎Being yourself and trusting yourself enough to go after all of the things you want in life
💎Loving yourself enough to be comfortable in your own skin
💎The desire to never stop dreaming!
All super amazing acts that push us towards the direction we are destined to go in life. To have passion and a dream is to have purpose. I can attest to the fact that it does get super overwhelming at times. The question of “will all that you’re doing pay off” comes into mind, right? Tracee has shared ways to beat that feeling of fear to fail.
She explains that inner strength is having a sense of self and that opens the door to accessing all of the things we want in life. To know yourself is a powerful thing which is why I’ve built my blog off of the importance of accepting self before anything. However, of course it’s easier said than done. The challenge is to remain motivated. I was very touched by a prayer she was kind enough to share as well:
”May the space between where I am and where I want to be inspire me.”
I know for me, I tend to compare where I am currently to where I’m going and end up discouraged. We have to embrace progress and be appreciative of the moment.
“Let’s get into style..”
The style icon loves vintage and favors designers Rachel Comey, Céline, Duru Olowu and Isabel Marant. Her bold style is a way to express herself creatively which changes mood-accordingly. She DOMINATES the color pink, in fact I’m going to assume that’s her favorite shade to wear. The collaboration with JC Penney on November 12th of last year is doing very well and who wouldn’t understand why?! The line is super diverse, ranging in sizes and pieces— cozy pj’s to athletic wear and of course it wouldn’t be a Tracee Ellis Ross collection if it didn’t give chic. Everything is under $100 and she made it a point to do so to make the line accessible to everyone. Dope.

Without a doubt, she is Top 5 STYLE influencer in my book. Check out the pictures below to see my favorite recent looks from T-MURDA....yes she even has a hood alter ego (she’s perfect.)
