Mad Mad Modes for Moderns Monday - Paper's the Thing!

Happy Monday! I hope you had a fantastic and relaxing weekend. A big thank you to everyone who took the time to read and/or comment on my last post. It was a bit emotional to write, so thank you for being so wonderful! 

 Fashion page romance comics Tony Abruzzo Mod looks

It's been awhile since I've shared a "Mad Mad Modes for Moderns," so when I came across this gorgeous Tony Abruzzo piece from Young Romance #147 (April/May 1967) over the weekend, I just had to share. I don't know about you -- I probably wouldn't wear a paper dress, but these are absolutely elegant. If you are interested in learning more about Abruzzo's background, be sure to check out my artist spotlight on him and his contributions to both comics and the world of fashion.

  Not sure how I feel about paper pants. Methinks the chafe factor would be too high!

Speaking of fashion... I'll be contributing an article on the fashion of the romance comics to the second issue of the new Rosy Press romance anthology, Fresh Romance. Issue two is slated to drop June 30th, so be sure to pick up a copy and stay tuned here for more info! In the meantime, treat yo self and check out issue one. The stories are sweet and the art is killer, so don't miss out on this modern foray into the romance genre!
