The gut-renovation of Unit 1, a duplex on the garden and parlor floors of 177 Beacon Street in go-go Back Bay, has produced a sleek and open modern condo from the bones of a 116-year-old brownstone.

Highlights of the renovation include a custom-built glass staircase and the retention of original molding in the living room (the fireplace in the den also came with the place).

The 1,820-square-foot spread is new to the market through Gibson Sotheby’s for $2,250,000.

One of Canada's greatest export Carly Rae Jepsen has teamed up with Swedish songwriter and producer Pontus Winnberg, for her next album. Winnberg has worked with many well known pop stars such as Britney Spears, Madonna, JLO, and Katy Perry. He is also the producer behind one of Britney's most popular songs, Toxic.

According to the source, Carly is expected to release her full length 4th album later this year, through School Boy Records and Interscope Records.

In addition to working with Winnberg, Carly was pictured working with Noonie Bao and Patrik Berger. Berger, a Grammy nominated composer, has worked with many artists such as Robyn, Lana Del Rey, Charli XCX, and Noonie Bao herself.

Not sure how reliable this source is, but new music from CRJ is always welcomed! By the way, anyone in Chicago going to see Carly perform at the Pitchfork Festival today? If you can't make it, you can watch the live stream here. Her set starts at 4:25 pm PST. I hope she performs Fever or First Time!

    Happy Wednesday Everyone. This outfit was worn back in May.  I wore this outfit to work. When the weather got nice to wear a sweater. Without having to put a coat on top of it. Which it was so nice.

    This is going to be my last outfit post from Germany. Now I need to get my butt in gear and start taking outfit post here in Maryland. I have worn some cute outfit here so far but didn't get a chance to get a post of it. Maybe this week.

    Britney's 1998 Live Showcase leaks

    so pitchy and full of dreams :')



    The always lovely Bradley Stern over at Muumuse provided us with a nice Britmas surprise. In the 1998 clip we see Britney performing live for record execs in Singapore, singing tracks off her then forthcoming debut album. Brit belts her way through ...Baby One More Time, Sometimes and You Got it All, a cover version of the Jets original. This is also before Brit adopted the now signature Britney Spears™ vocal style so you get to see and hear the original Britney. Te gusta?

    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.

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

    no thanks vanessa bb :(

    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.

    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

    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.
