FLAWLESS. She looks like she’s made out of rose petals. And the head styling couldn’t possibly be more perfect. There is not one thing about this look that we don’t love like a couple of crazy fanboys. You WERQ your perfection, girl.

WIWW:Crop Top in Venice

actually very cute for her!!

Crop Top in Venice Crop Top in Venice

Happy Wednesday Everyone!  I hope your week is going well. My week has been a busy one so far. With no chance of slowing down.  So for today post. I decide to share with you all one of the outfits. I wore in Venice. 

Crop Top in Venice

I wore this outfit on my second day in Venice. The weather was amazing. Which was prefect for me to step out of my comfort zone and try out a crop top.  This crop top from Newchic is super light weight. Which makes it prefect for hot days. Plus it doesn't show off to much skin. Which it the one reason I like it. 

Venice

At night it got a little cooler out. So therefor I throw on my favorite grey cardigan. To keep me warm.

IN or OUT: Vanessa Hudgens in Monique Lhuillier at the 2016 NBCUniversal Upfront Presentation

no thanks vanessa bb :(

Vanessa Hudgens attends the 2016 NBCUniversal Upfront Presentation in New York City.

 

Kittens, what do we think here? Because there’s an influx of good semi-cazh red carpetry going on at the Upfronts at the same time that the Cannes Film Festival keeps punching us in the face with over-the-top gownery. It’s getting so a couple of bitches such as we can’t trust our opinions anymore.

Because we think we like this:

And it may be up to you to talk us down.

Listen, the shoes are awful. Let’s get that out of the way before you yell at us. They’re fine on their own (if bland as hell), but this outfit called for something like a brilliant teal sandal, right? Which brings us to our next question: can she handle the yellow? It’s clearly quite the trendy color at the moment, but it’s also a really tough color to pull off. We tend to think it’s not a problem for her, although we think the makeup could use some adjusting. But we kinda love the shape and the simple summer vibe of it. Maybe the pants are a bit much for her to handle, but we love the top. We don’t know… we’re all over the place on this one. We like it more than we probably should, though.

Kittens make the call:

Cannes Style Double Shot: Kirsten Dunst in Dior and Gucci

by Tom and Lorenzo

love!

Kirsten-Dunst-2016-Cannes-Film-Festival-Opening-Night-Gala-Cafe-Society-Premiere-Red-Carpet-Fashion-Dior-Couture-Gucci-Tom-Lorenzo-Site (1)

It’s quite clear from these shots that Miss Kiki had a red carpet game plan going into Cannes this year. Said game plan being “I shall CRUSH my enemies under the tricky heel of my shoe.” Apparently.

 

Kirsten Dunst attends the Jury Photocall at the Cannes Palais des Festivals during the 2016 Cannes International Film Festival in Cannes, France in Dior.

Okay, before we get to anything else, let us stipulate that those shoes, while interesting in a theoretical sense, are nonetheless total girl-no’s. That is to say, they are the type of shoe that causes one to exclaim “GIRL, NO!” in concern for the well-being of her feet. Of slightly lesser importance: they’re not even all that pretty. We can see how a fashionista might be interested in them at first glance, but one try-on should’ve sealed the “NOPE” deal.

Moving on to the rest of her look… it’s all gangbusters. We wouldn’t think a pale blonde could work a yellow-and-gold ensemble, but she looks fresh and … we don’t know… regal somehow. If only Cathy Cambridge would sport a dress as chic as this now and then. The fit is flawless and the gold belt really makes the look.

But Miss K was not going to rest on her laurels after that sweetly chic opening. She hauled out the big guns for the premiere:

 

Kirsten Dunst attends the premiere of “Cafe Society” and the Opening Night Gala held at the Cannes Palais des Festivals during the 2016 Cannes International Film Festival in Cannes, France.

Said big guns being BIG HONKING GLITTER FLOWERS.

Note that she’s once again sporting a pastel but making it seem fresher than your average blonde-in-a-pastel look. Of course the entire look rests on those beaded flowers, which are spectacular, but the blush pink of the gown looks lovely on her and the shape is elegant and chic. The only quibble we have is with that belt detail, but all of the Gucci trompe l’oeil looks this season have been hit or miss. This is far from the worst of the lot, although we think the dress would be better served with something a little more conventional around the waist.

We’re quibbling, though. She looks chic as hell in both looks.

Boston-Area Rents: Make Less, Pay More—and Vice Versa

by Tom Acitelli
KV

gross

It wasn't always like this

Boston-area rents are, of course, some of the highest in the United States, and that reality creates curious phenomena. Case in point: Tenants in some of the region's priciest neighborhoods for renting pay smaller shares of their income in rent, while those in less expensive areas pay greater proportions.

WGBH has drilled down into the latest available data and found nagging quirks such as this:

In parts of Back Bay, Fenway, South End and downtown Boston — where the average one-bedroom apartment rents for $3,000 or more — residents are, on average, paying between a quarter and a third of their household income on rent.

In neighborhoods like Roxbury, Mattapan, parts of Dorchester and East Boston, and many areas surrounding downtown Boston ... the average renter is paying more than a third, or even more than half of their income on rent.

Lest one assume it's always been so, note this: In 2000, according to WGBH, "there were relatively few areas" where tenants were paying on average more than about one-third of their incomes on rent. A large number were paying under one-quarter, in fact. Check out the comparative maps below. The bluish areas are where tenants are spending a lot of income on rent.

the fuck?

One day after Mayor Walsh vowed to fly a flag in support of transgender rights until the state legislature passes a bill enabling them, workers took it down and replaced it with a Polish flag, in honor of the 225th anniversary of Poland's first constitution. They moved the flag to a pole on the Cambridge Street side of City Hall.

City to cover community-college tuition for low-income BPS graduates

by adamg
KV

awesome

Mayor Walsh today announced a plan to pay tuition at Bunker Hill and Roxbury Community Colleges for all BPS graduates with at least a 2.2 GPA who are eligible for federal Pell grants for low-income students.

The money will come from payments by developers of large commercial developments into a city linkage fund - the Neighborhood Jobs Trust - and will pick up the costs not covered by the Pell grants.

Along with the new reimbursement program, the city and BPS will develop counseling, remedial classes and other programs to help students graduate from the colleges. The program is already available to Madison Park graduates and will roll out at the city's other high schools June 1.

In a statement, Walsh said:

The single most effective way to break down the social and financial barriers facing many Boston families is to make post-secondary education free and accessible.

Condos would replace glass company, convenience store and billboards on Washington Street in Jamaica Plain

by adamg
KV

wow

Developers have filed plans with the BRA for a 49-unit, five-story condo building at 3193 Washington St. at Montebello Road - across the street from a proposed 73-unit residential building.

Developers Fred Starikov, Stephen Whalen and Josh Fetterman are proposing 24 parking spaces - and 58 bicycle spaces - for a $13-million building they say is an eight-minute walk to Green Street and Stony Brook on the Orange Line and an easy walk to pretty much everything else that makes JP JP.

Most of the units would have a single bedroom; three would be studios, 11 would have two bedrooms and three would have three bedrooms.

These units will be very attractive to those seeking the diverse neighborhood within the urban context of Boston.

Introducing Bloomingville (and giveaway!)

by Jon
KV

cute shit is cute

Putting together a room can be a challenging thing. It can be especially frustrating when you can’t find anything you’re looking for. I find it helpful when you have a lot of choices rather than being limited to just a few, so I’m always excited when I find a new store or maker. Today I’m excited to introduce you to what could be a new favorite go-to brand- Bloomingville.

Bloomingville got it’s start in 2000 by founder Bettina Stampe. They’re based in Denmark and have recently partnered with a global group for home furnishings and now are able to bring Bloomingville products to the US! (woo hoo!)

Below is a sampling of some of their beautiful wares:

Bloomingville via happymundane.com

I’m totally drooling from all the Scandinavian Modern gorgeousness!
(Top row: Rattan arm chair, glass skull figurine, wool blanket Bottom row: cannister set, ceramic vase with cork bottom, table lamp)

In particular, here are a few of my favorites:

Bloomingville via happymundane.com

This 5-piece Gitte Round Ceramic Dinnerware set is a perfect piece for entertaining. You could use it as an individual place setting, and have all the pieces of your meal nicely set up- you have a bowl for sauce, a bowl for soup, side, and a nice larger bowl for your main dish. The bowls set in place in the larger bottom tray so they’ll stay put if you are moving from say, the kitchen, to your patio. You could also just use one setting like I have shown above, and use it for h’ordeuvres or a crudité platter.

Bloomingville via happymundane.com

Ok, who now doesn’t want a marble cutting board… AND in a hexagon shape?! Yes please! And this one is actually a great size. It’s about 16″ around which makes it a good size to not only cut things on, but also good to display or use as a base for a centerpiece.

BUT WAIT- there’s more!

The kind folks at Bloomingville are letting me GIVE AWAY one of these cutting boards to one of you awesome Happy Mundane readers! We’re also throwing in an exclusive geometric print tea towel as well! (It’s not even available yet in the US!)

Bloomingville via happymundane.com

All you have to do to enter the giveaway is do one of the following actions listed in the giveaway widget below. The more you complete, the more points you get to enter!

a Rafflecopter giveaway

Giveaway ends Friday, April 29 2016 – (US residents only)

Meghan Trainor on Britney Spears: She's the reason why I'm a singer!

KV

LEAVE BRITNEY ALONE

mods this is an new interview with a different outlet that just came out yesterday. i checked the tags it has not been posted.




In a brand new interview with Digital Spy the Dr. Luke collaborator sat down and talked about her admiration for Britney Spears and surmised that the pop icon is the reason why she became a singer. Meghan says:

"She's the reason why I'm a singer. That was the first album I ever had."

She also went on to clarify that contrary to previous reports she was the one that approached Britney's team and eagerly offered up her services:

"I was in LA Reid's office and Britney's people who are working with her now came in." she continues "I was like, 'Should I? Should I write for Britney Spears right now?'I was so crazy busy."

However Meghan excitedly took the initiative and asked! "I was like, 'Hey, if you guys ever want help or need an extra writer, I'm so down.'"


No word if Britney and her team have considered the offer tho!
