The pattern wearing, natural hair popping, body rocking, TRACEE ELLIS ROSS. This woman is the epitome of exuberance and never fails to WOW me when she steps out!

Born as Tracee Joy Silberstein… and besides her incredibly funny and witty role as Dr. Rainbow Johnson in the comedy series Black-ish, she’s best known for her iconic role on the TV sitcom Girlfriends as Joan Carol Clayton, where she won her first NAACP Award Image Award for Outstanding Actress in a Comedy Series, but did you know how she’s coming this year? Probably not.

The Brown University alum graduated with a degree in Theatre. She later worked in the fashion industry, as a model and contributing fashion editor to Mirabella and New York magazines. Fast forward to 2017, (17 years after the debut of Girlfriends), she dropped her first clothing line with J.C. Penney on November 12th (I hope you shopped some great finds). I am so excited for this holiday collection!

“I really believe that style and looking great does not have to be expensive, and I really believe that women are beautiful in all shapes, colors, sizes, and ages. It
was really important for me to design a collection of clothes that can be both your armor and your joy at the same time.” – Tracee Ellis Ross

The Tracee Ellis Ross x J.C. Penney collection features looks that range in sizes and
textures that are bold, but sleek and versatile. Each item would be perfect for any holiday gathering this season and would look gorgeous on any woman… It’s definitely worth a purchase! If you haven’t gotten the chance to view it yet, be sure to find her collection on J.C. Penney’s website.

As the Christmas season is quickly approaching and you’re unsure of what to get for that STYLE MAVEN in your life, I recommend these fashionable, yet affordable looks for Black Friday or Cyber Monday sales!
