Tracee Ellis Ross is today’s lady inspiration for a few reasons. One: have you seen how beautiful she is? As you probably know, her mother’s Diana Ross, and I love that she looks so much like her. At times I think Tracee is a funhouse mirror version of her mother, and at times I think Diana is a funhouse mirror version of Tracee. That being said, most of the time I think Tracee looks like a more normal, but equally beautiful, Diana.
The real reason she’s today’s lady inspiration is her new website, traceeellisross.com. It’s basically a lifestyle website, kind of like GOOP but much, much, much more attainable for a “regular” woman. God bless and keep you, Gwyneth, but I literally can’t afford anything in your damn newsletter. Sure, I’d love to buy a $400 sweater or give a monogrammed cashmere throw as a houseguest gift, but that’s never going to happen. Tracee Ellis Ross writes about things like Lash Blast mascara and Naked by David Sedaris. She’s way more my style.
The site’s not just about stuff you can buy, though. She also writes about totally normal snacks (not juice cleanses, G. Pal!), artists like Marina Abramovic, and this incredibly interesting and well-written take on our cultural obsession with/confusion by fake boobs. Oh, and there are inspirational quotes. You know I love inspirational quotes.
Be sure to check out the site here. You can also find her on Pinterest! Consider yourself followed, Tracee Ellis Ross.
