In honor of the season four premiere of “Mad Men” on Sunday, July 25th at 10/9 Central on AMC, this weekend The Frisky is re-posting a few of our favorite “Mad Men”-inspired essays.
As a redhead, I’ve often been told I resemble, well, anyone else who also happens to have red — or even reddish — hair. When I had a pixie cut, people told me all the time I looked like a young Mia Farrow from “Rosemary’s Baby,” and before that, when my hair was longer, I always got compared to Lauren Ambrose from “Six Feet Under.” About two years ago people started telling me I looked like a character on a new series called “Mad Men.” I’d never seen the show, but a friend soon emailed me a picture of Joan Holloway and wrote “Your doppelganger!” in the subject line.

Having your own fashion blog as your job seems kind of like one of those dream professions like modeling or acting where all you do all day is put together cute outfits and take pictures of yourself in them. The difference is that successful models get paid. A lot. That’s not so evident with independent fashion bloggers who might have a huge following but don’t seem to actually do much. They’ve got to have some money somewhere to be able to live like that, right? Recently, Susie Bubble had to confront this assumption after posting about a shopping spree on her blog, Style Bubble, where she disclosed the $338 (220 GBP) price of her Christopher Kane purchase. A reader got a bit curious, leaving the comment: “220 here, 220 there…how much money do you actually spend on clothes? and im not buyng the story…oh they are an investment, like some sort of fashion archive … how do you make money to afford to buy things like this and travel like you do.” Susie, slightly offended, retaliated, and detailed exactly how a fashion blogger supports herself … Keep reading »
