Shopping XOXO

I’m about to leave for my second year at XOXO in Portland, a technology and art festival put together by my friend Andy Baio and co-founder Andy McMillan, who wanted to recapture the feeling of possibility and camaraderie he missed from the early days of SxSW Interactive.

Last year the festival had a sort of craft fair in the lobby, and these were some of my favorite things:

We Flashy, killer reflective wear for creatures of the night.

Print mashup from Berkley Illustration.

A Bikesexuality Zine. Ding!Ding!

And among my favorite objects of all time, Campfire Cologne.

I may never wash this sweater again. Or my hair.

Stop looking at me like that.

Are you going to XOXO? And/or do you wash your hair after a campfire?

    Never wash hair with campfire smell still intact. You might be interested in Gorilla perfumes “Voice of Reason”scent. I got mine at Lush and it smells like fires and leather and whiskey. Good stuff!

    yay Portland! I live here, it’s very awesome. It’s been very sunny, 80 tomorrow, and then the rains come on Friday – and possibly last until next July. This weekend is Comic Con. I’ve never heard of xoxo. I have naturally curly hair, so for me it’s not so much campfire as it is beach-hair. Best curls ever.

    I keep a blanket from a Maine camping trip sealed in a large ziploc bag…you know, for emergencies.

    I’m not sure which I like more! Too hard to choose. Love that the reflective clothing isn’t ugly, but the campfire cologne made me laugh.
