Letter Writing Retrospection

Friday, September 18, 2015

Over the past few years, Letter Writing has been a monthly series here on Never Fully Dressed (Without A Style). We've covered letters of professional and personal etiquette, letters to different audiences both personal and public, and letters with fun and playful intent. However, this topic has been well and full explored. Gathered below are all posts on the subject to be used as a resource for all your letter writing questions and needs.

  1. Ah, I love this! Bookmarking this for sure. I was actually just writing two letters this morning to some friends--I really love to keep in touch with people through physical objects by including drawings and personality opposed to an e-mail. It seems so much more heartfelt and then you can pin it up on a cork board and feel all mushy gushy when you get a reply. :)

    1. Being able to keep the physical copy of people's thoughts is such a big reason of why I love letters too. It was so interesting reading old family member's letters for that reason.

  2. Love that you've been doing this! Snail mail has been my fav creative endeavor for as long as I can remember. :)

    1. So fun to find out about another lover of letters!

  3. As a snail mail lover, I'm always excited to read your mail posts :)

  4. Oh man, was that the end of the series? Forever one of the most unique and wonderful series on your blog!

    1. Oh, thank you Jessica. Yeah, just couldn't think of any more types of letters (well, besides a birthday card but... it is a birthday card. There is not How-to). So glad you enjoyed this :D

  5. I love this focus back on handwritten letters!


  6. Saving this link as a reference for later! Letter writing is a lost art that I still love!

    1. I'm glad you think this can be a help, Priya. I love letter writing too!
