Shopping for Santa
Beanie June in the back of the little mall on North University is the place to go for dressy scarves. It sells a ton of them, including a bamboo-blend scarf for $39 and a cool ombre scarf for $29 that's dyed in three different shades of the same color-so when you tie it around your neck, it looks as if you're wearing three different very stylish scarves that you just tossed together in a "What, this old thing?" kind of way. Charlotte Tarantola sweaters are another big seller and start at $98.
Around the corner on State Street, Fly can put together a starter disc golf set for $27 that includes a putter, a medium-range disc, and a driver. Disc golf bags start at $17. The small ones are the size of a small duffle bag, eliminating the need to hire a caddy unless you're looking for advice on how to approach that dogleg on the fourteenth hole.
Leg warmers are back, and American Apparel on Liberty has lots of them, starting at $42. Many come in shiny metallic colors like gray and blue, reminiscent of glittering custom paint jobs on classic 1960s muscle cars. American Apparel also has pants in hot neon colors with zippers that run all the way down the outside of each leg-presumably so you can make an emergency exit from your pants in the event of an accident. They're $59.
