mad about mad men

undoubtedly, mad men has got to be one of the most styish shows currently on tv. the signature pencil skirts, fitted sweaters, slim suits and skinny ties, have prompted a madness for mad men with a slew of viewing parties, dressed to par of course, and fashion designers basing their collections on the show. now viewers can submit a photo for a chance to win a walk-on role on the show - but not everyone can pull off mr. don draper quite as well as my personal vote below, jordan crompton!

cool hair* hot days*

wearing your hair long, primped, and glamourous in the summer is an almost impossible mission to accomplish. in this case, you come to adopt several hair variations that will keep you cool when its really hot ... and best of all maintaining an effortlessly chic look. no need to worry about wind, beach, frizz, humidity and those other notorious hair kills with styles like the messy bun, side twisted braid, good ol' fashion pigtails, beach waves, natural curls, and with a neat headband to bring it all together, your hair will be ready to keep you cool and chic even when the the weather may be hot and sticky.

local gem: the six

on the primarily dismal block of pico blvd, enters a hip, eclectic, fresh yet rustic restaurant called the six. the decor included recycled wine crates, photo wrapped lamps, oversized wine bottles, and light bulb pot racks hanging from the ceiling. the communal table in the middle of the room was filled with groups of business clad individuals engaged in some afternoon drinks and nibbles. the ambiance was perfect and the food absolutely superb. my personal favorites were the mouth watering truffle oil infused pizza with goat cheese and vidalia onions, the addicting parmesan truffle fries and of course six cheese mac n cheese. if you haven't already guessed, their menu offerings includes all things 'six'... six veggies, six starters, six pizzas, six sandwiches, etc. with this approach i wouldn't mind eating here seven, not six days out of the week.
