Baubles, Boxers, Requisite Tie
"Perfect." That's what Julia Roberts said when she saw the antique necklaces with watches, lockets and other Old World charms at Tracey Ross, a new shop in Los Angeles. She scooped up several of the pretty baubles priced from $200 to $300. Farrah Fawcett also cruised the store recently and purchased a pair of $20 flannel boxer shorts printed with playing cards and dice--for herself.
TIES? AGAIN? Need a present for the man on your list? How about a tie? The numbers indicate that it is the universal lack-of-imagination gift. The Neckwear Assn. of America estimates that between 14.4 and 19.2 million ties will be sold this holiday season. Even former First Father Ronald Reagan won't be spared. Daughter Maureen wrapped up her Christmas shopping at Fred Hayman Beverly Hills with a couple of tie purchases for dear old dad.
HEAVY TRAFFIC: Three rap masters, Young M.C., Vanilla Ice and M.C. Hammer, have been shopping at Traffic in the Beverly Center for their formal attire. Young M.C. bought a $1,200 rhinestone-encrusted tuxedo, and Vanilla Ice had to have a tux for his new video. M.C. Hammer opted for a more sedate, black silk Fugi suit.
