To socialize or talk informally preferably over a drink. Word forms: 3rd person singular present tense hobnobs, present participle hobnobbing, past tense, past participle hobnobbed.
But honestly. Hobnob is a safe space for women who prefer iced coffee over a perfectly curated wardrobe. It’s is a daycare center for women who are intrigued by trends, but also don’t care. It is an open bar for those who swear on vintage Chanel and whose pension funds hang in their closets.
I’ve been following Marie Dewet and her mom Nathalie for quite some time. If you haven’t I am sure you recognize their work. They work together as a seamstress and creative to make clothes in leftover fabrics.
You might recognize the Agnes top, worn by every cool girl ever, pictured to the left.
Also, you can’t actually shop MaisonCléo this weekend since their web shop is only open on Wednesdays. This is due to such high demand and long process with every piece being cut, made and shipped by Marie and Nathalie.
But you know what they say, if you are waiting for something good you can wait forever.
Slow fashion is actually putting this up to test but I would say we can all learn something by waiting. Have a snack or something, you know.
Shop MaisonCléo here.
Are you in Copenhagen this weekend? Lucky, read Linn’s Copenhagen vintage guide here.

Of course I will never not take an opportunity to show you all how good of a vintage hunter I am. This is one of few things I brag about without feeling like an a hole. I mean, I probably made a bargain and with no climate print, how much more 2019 does it get?
I got this 80s Yves Saint Laurent jacket about a month ago. It was 100€ and I left the store almost believing I had stolen it. Bc what a steal?? It has been my power blazer ever since. I feel like a rock n roll grandma in it.
These 100% wool trousers (also 80s, see a pattern??) are not as spectacular of a find. But still so good. I got them at Beyond Retro and you know when you see something on a hanger and you feel it in your gut that those trousers are made from my measurements. Well, that was the case. Such a good vintage purchase.

It’s like a treasure hunt every time I go thrift shopping (both physically and online that is) Only there is no map and you never know when you will get home empty handed or need to call your mom to come pick you and a brand new old sofa on the other side of town.
Only when shopping vintage online, shipping makes I easier ofc. Both for me and mum.
My latest discovery on the vintage interior section in cyber is Attack. Shop here.
Reformation started as a vintage store but continued to doing clothes in leftover fabrics and then took the lead in sustainable but new made fashion. What some don’t know is that they still do vintage drops on the website and has kept the vintage stores in New York and Los Angeles.
Vintage Christian Dior jacket from Reformation’s vintage section. Shop here.
A polka dot square neck top to go with denim? Shop here.
