THIS YEAR, THE NEW STORES that
have opened in Ann Arbor cater to just about
every fashion whim and pocketbook. Better
still, they're able to do so without alienating
those with even the most eccentric of fashion
tastes. So if you're looking for the perfect
outfit or accessory to communicate your
personality, try these stores:
- Choc Choc, 1731 Plymouth Rd. in the
North Campus Plaza.
Don't let the name fool you. This store is
not in the chocolate business (it's pronounced
"Shock Shock"). And don't let the words
"North Campus" deter you either, for Choc
Choc has a lot to offer the student market.
"Our clothing represents a uniqueness that
no other boutique has," said Julie Venners, the
store's manager. "We are trying to escape from
the norm and our clothing represents something
new and something refreshing."
The store motto is "For men and women
who hate to dress ordinary," and it shows. The
merchandise is visually exciting, and an ample
selection of accessories and jewelry is a
particular strong point. Venners stresses that
Choc Choc definitely has the student
pocketbook in mind.
"We don't want to frighten our customers,"

SOME MAY EMPHASIZE that it's not what you wear,
but who you are inside. But the reality is fashion.
Still, there are those individuals who, by not caring about
style trends, create a fashion of their own. They are seen all
over campus. The person who dresses totally in black or the
person who has a case of the value village syndrome and
mixes and matches to create their own look. These folks are
still in fashion. They're guided by it.
"The motto is never wear anything that is just put on the
market," said Barb Grossman, a Residential College junior.
"I usually wait about five years."
Those who are anti-fashion oriented cannot stand when
retail stores sell totally coordinated outfits or when students
