Los Angeles State Historic Park, 1245 N. Spring St., Los Angeles. Noon Sat. $30. http://www.fyffest.com .

THERE IS no end in sight to fashion's infatuation with the Reagan era. Fast-fashion chains are stocking Ray-Ban rip-offs, tapered jeans are seeping back into style and neon colors are all the rage, so naturally the cheapie plastic sports watch is once again a bona fide accessory. And is it ever a watch for our times. Most can be had for less than $100.
