Intern Trace talks fashion disasters, gives his take on the latest episode.

on Sep 23, 20090

After watching episode six, I decided to purchase a floor length mirror and to no longer take fashion advice from the “helpful” sales associates at Barney’s. They clearly set out to make commission and “answer (Jeff’s) prayers. You know when you have one perception of how you look before you leave the house and then you later realize just how off the mark you were? Well just be thankful your mishaps don’t happen on national television.

But I would like to go on record and state that I’m very proud of my bowtie necklace.

There was never a dull moment working in Bel Air on Stradella. We transformed the house relatively inexpensively by switching out some of the hardware, painting doors, cabinets and walls, and replacing the flooring and countertops. The minor changes brought the house up to date and made such a huge visual impact.

Well I’d love to stay and chat but I have to finish working on my finals for school. Good news, HR accepted my request on having a day off to work on my projects.

PS. If anyone is curious, yes, Jeff still uses “Pearl Necklace” every chance he gets.

Hi Trace,

I sincerely hope that you read this considering that the post is a month lame - the reason I'm commenting here is because I JUST saw a picture of Lindsay Lohan online today (10/9) and she was wearing a bow tie headband. The second I saw it, all I could think of was TRACE! I thought your bow tie necklace was very visionary/ avant-garde/original when I saw it, but to see it ripped off.....creativity: the gift and the curse.

All the best, HG

Trace;

You are a beautiful, fashionably hip young man. I loved your little short outfit. Love the bow tie. Your spirit and who you are comes across the screen. You are a wonderful addition to jeff's team.. Keep being you. Ignore any comments on what you wear. If you like it, wear it.. Hope to see you on the show next season.

Trace, Keep up the good work. You seem to have it together and your life plan seems to be working out for you. As for those suggestions to date Jeff,don't even let it cross you mind. Too much age difference. Good luck with everything.

Dear Trace I think you are adorable - but you do realize that natural stones are mined in Africa and then of course imported... Sarah isn't an airhead!

trace........ did i hear you have to work for Jeff for five years and then he will give you a "letter" regarding your performance.sounds like Jeff has a thing for you and he needs five years to develop it. don't waste the five years. love those eyes.

Trace, Has it ever crossed your mind that Jeff notices because he may be just a little into you? Staring just a millimeter of a second too long, making you sit there and wait for him to ask you some rhetorical question. You are so young and thin that you can wear anything and get away with it outside of the office. AND YOU KNOW IT!!! And you know that Jeff knows it too!!!

Trace, You are a very hot young man and I think you should just use your common sense as far as fashion.

I like your fashion Trace, even if Jeff picks on you about it. you know Jeff, he's gotta pick, pick, pick...which makes the show fun. I know Jeff can be difficult to work for, but i know, deep down, hes loving and caring. Ryan really upset Jeff, family and friends and co-workers need to be by Jeff's side. As a loyal fan of the show, my heart goes out to Jeff with this situation with Ryan.

Trace,

Please use your common sense when it comes to fashion. It is NOT okay to dress these funky clothes that you wore on that show when you're at work. It is OKAY to wear any kind of clothes you like to wear when you're not at work.

Trace, your shorts were sexy. Don't listen to Jeff and Jenny when it comes to fashion. You looked great. Yes and the bowtie rocked. If this whole design thing doesn't work out you could totally be a fashion model.

He is very cute, and I would date him. He reminds me of a young Jeff, when he cant get out of bed unless he wins a game of checkers. I would like to meet them all and I am a fan. Im young single gay boy.. lol

HI,Trace. I was watching 9/22 episode. I love the short pants you were wearing. I think that's not tooo tooo short! If you were living NY that's normal....I also LOVE the Marc Jaocbs bowtie with necklace. That was good idea. I love marc, 3.1phillip lim and alexander wang. You should be fashion designer. Maybe with Rachel Zoe?
