Call me old-fashioned, but anytime I receive a piece of mail that isn’t in the form of a bill, I’m ecstatic. Though I spend the majority of my time drafting emails and communicating via instant messenger at work, the art of letter writing is a lost form. I’ve always favored blank greeting cards to avoid the long, corny inscriptions that hide within. Vera Wang, though most widely known for her gorgeous wedding gowns, also has an impressive line of stationary, all of which is simple and classic. I chose this particular set because of the clean lines and unexpected pop of lilac inside the envelope. Though it’s never easy to motivate oneself to write thank-you notes, they’re always appreciated and having pretty stationary makes it far more enjoyable.
