Youth! Beauty! Fashion!

Fashion Snoops is a database for the fashion industry showcasing trends, forecasting styles and compiling retail reports. Fashion Snoops already includes sections for Ladies, Men, Girls, Boys, Home and Accessories and it has recently added two new sections: Youth and Beauty.

The Youth tab “captures the lifestyle, trends and movements that affect the fashion choices of this generation.” A blend of street art, street style, runway fashion, and profiles of “influencers,” the Youth sections is buzzing with energy.

The new Beauty tab showcases trends in runway and street make up. There are tabs for trend forecasts, recaps of the fashion season and featured style inspiration- such as make up inspired by The Hunger Games.

Dive into the new Fashion Snoops sections and be inspired! They can be accessed by Palomar College students, faculty and staff from the Library’s article pages: http://www.palomar.edu/library/OnlineDatabases/arts-and-humanities.htm

If you have any questions about Fashion Snoops, or any other library resource, stop by the Reference Desk and a librarian will be happy to assist you.

One Story: Read A Story Each Month

Looking for creative new literary voices? Take a look at One Story, a not-for-profit literary magazine that features one short story each issue from new authors. Here’s an exerpt from the current issue’s story, “Refund” by David James Poissant (Issue #155, Oct. 7, 2011):

The evening began in argument. Josh’s first grade teacher had called a parent/teacher conference, and Joy and I were expected that night at school. This was not the standard mid-year check-in. For months, we’d been getting notes. Josh wasn’t finishing his schoolwork. Josh didn’t play well with others. Josh wasn’t paying attention in class…”

Come to the Library to finish reading the whole story, shelved in the Periodical Stacks on the 2nd floor. If you’re looking for a specific author, search the Library catalog.
