So you didn't get that full- length mink for Christmas -- again. Well, you said, with proper indignation, you wouldn't be seen wearing one, (and now you won't!). So take your love of animals one step further, and become a legend most with this warm and wooly fox scarf. It takes fake to new heights. Warped of silk and nyon; weft of mohair, silk, wool, Mylar and cotton, this original weaving by Carla Pinahs of Nashotah, Wis., would delight even Little Red Riding Hood.
Red fox scarf. $160. H.H. Leonards, 2020 O St. NW. 659-8787. DESIGNER EDIBLES
Gloria Vanderbilt's name on a box of popsicles might appear to be a paradox. But the jean queen lets us have our sweets and stay skinny, too. These tofu treats lack cholesterol and lactose (the orange and vanilla one is less than 100 calories) yet they taste good. Other flavors include Wildberry Supreme with chocolate-style coating , Double Chocolate, Chocolate and Cream, and a heck of a vanilla sandwich. If you prefer to spoon your desserts into crystal compotes, there's more by the pint: cappuccino, peanut butter, vanilla almond, cookies 'n' cream, chocolate, chocolate chip and chocolate-chocolate chip. Move over, Bob and Steve. Gloria's here.
Glace With Tofu. $1.89 for six treats. $1.89 a pint. Fresh Value stores in Kensington, Arlington and Reston. STAMPING GROUNDS
Neither snow nor sleet nor hail keeps the U.S. Postal Service from tempting stamp collectors and potential philatelists with ever new editions. The stamp kit shown here -- "Costumes Through the Ages" (or No. 0923, as it is referred to at philatelic windows) -- contains 30 stamps from different countries, a 20-page illustrated stamp album with a special place for each and every colorful stamp, sticky mounting hinges and the primer "Getted in Stamp Collecting." Other kits include: "Famous Person," "Out-of-Space," "Creature of the Sea," "Automobile," "Soccer" and "Spirit of America." How else would we ever know Togo?
