DEAR HOT: To avoid a wild mix of tan lines, I stick with the same bathing suit day in, day out. Are there any new swimwear accessories, preferably on the inexpensive side, that I can add to keep from boring myself and my friends? --A.L., Santa Monica DEAR A.L.: Though we prefer the ultra-pasty, mega-sun-blocked look ourselves, you might want to pick up some Zinka Glitter Dark Tanning Oil, a new SPF 2 product that contains glitter (turquoise or gold) and sells for $6.98.

Wouldn't it be fun to peek inside the homes of home decorators? After all, it's one thing to see professionals' handiwork in clients' abodes, but what do they do in their own sanctuaries? This is the question posed by author Claire Whitcomb and the editors of Victoria magazine in "Designers in Residence" (Hearst Books), published this month. The book looks inside the homes of 18 decorators, all of them women.

Marilyn Mojahed remembers seeing her aunt and uncle run their clothing stores in the Imperial Valley. "The retail business was always very exciting to me," she recalled.

During most of her career, she worked as a secretary for various unions. In 1975, she left secretarial work and went into real estate.

It would be sacrilege to say that Dorothy Parker could improve on the meaning of a phrase in the Bible, but in one case she actually did: Parker and Clare Booth Luce were engaged in a running feud. Meeting in a doorway one day, Luce stepped aside for Parker with the stinger, "Age before beauty." Parker's famous retort: "Pearls before swine."

Gianna Majzler's world is filled with teapots, birdhouses, scented potpourris and seemingly anything with a Victorian or whimsical look.

There's a sense of deja vu about Leeba Marks' jackets. The lush floral fabrics, charming embroidery and elegant cutwork are somehow familiar. In previous lives they were tablecloths, runners, handkerchiefs and tea towels from the 1930s, '40s and '50s. In their current incarnation, they evoke a sense of comfort, of home, of sunny, happy kitchens before Cuisinarts replaced eggbeaters.

The figure lurking in the shadows at the top of the stairs or in the corner of the bedroom may be no more ominous than an antique dressmaker's form. It's another case of yesterday's necessity turning into today's conversation piece. "The old dress form has a different function today, as a decorative stand for jewelry, such as necklaces or brooches," says Nancy Lindenmeyer, editor of Victoria magazine.

Like pressed roses and old lace, designs by Gianna Rose have a sweet, old-fashioned quality that remind one of white-haired grandmothers and Victorian parlors. "I think I was Victorian in another life," says Gianna Majzler, designer of the Gianna Rose line. "It's hard for me to do anything contemporary." Her creations--clothing and accessories crafted in a way even grandma would approve of--have been turning up in gift shops and antique stores all over the country.

Add this to the mounting evidence that women are tired of the more predictable parts of modern life: a little hat shop--Patina Millinery--tucked between a bakery and a swimming-pool supply on North La Brea Avenue. Patina Millinery is the vision of artists-turned-milliners Jodi Bentsen and Katrin Noon, who have filled the high-ceilinged, garret-like space with custom-made, one-of-a-kind hats that evoke another era.

Peggy Kennedy has discovered Victoria's secret. Victoria, the magazine of "romantic living," has a bigger circulation (950,000) than Architectural Digest, House & Garden or House Beautiful, according to the Audit Bureau of Circulations. Up against cutting-edge sophistication, sweet sells. Kennedy was hired last August as editor in chief of Victoria, the 14-year-old publication that celebrates a gracious world awash in herb gardens, wicker and English drawing rooms.
