Naughty and Nice

The Devilish and Divine Derek

Anyone who’s read Derek Blasberg’s book Very Classy knows that even this jet-setting, party throwing, youngest-ever editor at large for Harper’s Bazaar thinks that it’s never too late to send a thank you note.

Valentine’s Day

From a young age, Derek’s mother instilled in him the value of written correspondence and to this day, he’s kept nearly every handwritten note he’s received.  We would, too, if they were holiday cards from Anna Wintour or thank you notes from Karl Lagerfeld!

Dinner Party

So it’s only appropriate that Derek would design a line of extremely funny and quirky cards for every occasion now available on Paperless Post.  While some of the greetings and invitations are too naughty to post (after all, our mother reads our blog!)…  others are really quite nice tame.

Housewarming Party


Still, we wonder if an email card counts as a handwritten note?  Hmm…

    Hmmm…I was wondering the same! Being thankful is always appreciated, but it’s a notch or three above when the thank you is handwritten – from my grandmother to my years at Nordstrom the importance of the handwritten thank you note has been drilled into my very soul- and like Mr. Blasberg, I save all of mine. Than you, ladies, for all your lovely posts! XO

    I am all for the written word and to me an invite is not an invite through email (yes I know old fashioned:) I think its born out of my intense love for gorgeous stationery! These look like a lot of fun and as someone who has a sense of humor and loves to play jokes..these are right up my alley! Enjoy your Friday.

    These are so fun! Totally agree that a written thank you counts for more but sometimes a quick online missive is just the thing! Happy weekend!

    So much fun! I adore these…and had no idea about his paperless collection (and I do adore paperless post!). Its wonderful to learn more about his background. I do like to save most handwritten notes….I have boxes and boxes. I’m betting it will be fun to read through them years from now.
