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 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.
Browsing around cyber is fun, but only letting your algorithm take you to places you might like because you like a bunch of other stuff that is similar can be pretty monotonic. So, here is my map for blissful browsing this afternoon.
September 24th at 10 am the H&M Studio Collection will be available for purchase. A mere disco ball in an ocean of beige cashmere balls it seems right now.

The shows of Spring Summer 2021 are falling like apples from a tree these days but not in the way that we are used to. Physical fashion weeks are still taking place, but not nearly as much as usual.
Cathy Horyn wrote a piece for The Cut about how four-year-old brand Khaite has managed the difficult times and how that has affected the collection that they have produced during that time.
Khaite’s founder Catherine Holstein told Cathy that “…”There’s been some feedback to the collection. Whoa, this is so dark.” She laughed. “This isn’t even as dark as I could go.” ”
I am thrilled to see the collections of the European brands that are next up on the calendar and see their interpretation of the times we are in.

The past year’s lack of socializing sure has been rough on people. Less time talking and more time browsing has sure made me feel a bit fried.

Before this, when we were out, talking, discussing at least we got some new angles of approach.
Of course, the problem still existed and it was problematic back then too. But without the everyday influences by other opinions than our own, it comes as no surprise that our intellect feels a bit chipped, now that we are back socializing again.
The solution? It’s OK to change your opinion on something after learning new information.
Fanfiction series Ratched by Ryan Murphy about the horror nurse Rachel Ratched.
Why watch it? Well, if you are an American Horror Story-fan like myself, watch if because of the very Ryan Murphy esque storytelling and the world that just keeps dragging you into it. Also, the costume and set design are very satisfying.
