5 NYC Rooftops To Hit Up ASAP

Five rooftops. Now. Only because Lana Del Ray said summer nights in mid July you and I were forever wild. We don’t know who the “you” is yet, but we’re okay with getting wild on rooftops or something.

1. The Standard Hotel Rooftopimage(image)

Obviously The Standard is…anything but standard. Oh, there’s Nutella crepes up there too? See you [not at the gym]. 360 views and the whole nine yards. And Nutella, but you already knew that. Stop #1: Le Bain.

2. The Wythe Hotelimage(image)

Brooklyn, we go hard. Okay. Rooftop chillin at The Ides at the Wythe Hotel ain’t half bad either. Go for the view. Or make yourself a bubble bath and buy a postcard, whatever.

3. Hotel Americanoimage(image)

Down to take a dip in La Piscine at the Hotel Americano. The hotel has a nice Latin and French vibe mash up so…yo quiero croissant. Done, I’m in. 

4. Jimmy at the Jamesimage(image)

Holla at your boy Jimmy. And James. AKA Jimmy at the James in Soho. Impressive cocktail list, the works. Get it. 

5. Refinery Hotelimage(image)

New kid on the block…and we like it a lot. Indoor and outdoor patios, retractable roof. lively music at the Refinery Hotel rooftop.

Rejected Emojis

Created by FunnyOrDie contributors Jesse Benjamin, Avery Monsen and Darryl Gudmundson for World Emoji Day earlier this month (yes, this is real), this brilliant Tumblr catalogs the emotions and iconography of our age that the app has yet to cover, and some other stuff that makes no sense but we’re into anyway.

The Craziest Beyonce and Jay Z Rumors (That Did Not End the World)

image

(Image via Life & Style)

If you’ve been anywhere near a computer in the last week, you’ve heard: we flew too close to the sun. Perfection does not exist. Beyonce and Jay Z are getting a divorce. 

Maybe. This is all based on the claims of one blind gossip site, Bossip, that apparently, also before it was publicly announced, bore the news that Katie Holmes and Tom Cruise were breaking up and everyone on the site seems super positive it’s about Beyonce and Jay Z so, it’s game on. If memory serves, I don’t remember the TomCat relationship causing the emotional collapse of the internet, but apparently the mere whiff of turmoil with BeyJay is akin to being positive your BFF just died in a blaze of flames when the fire drill alarm goes off at school.

Wish it was sunday, cause that was a fun day, but this is just a manic…well you know. So here’s our roundup of things we saw, learned, or wished we could unsee today

Favorite Headline of the Day

- Well it’s not like we haven’t been waiting for this for 15 years
- New York Times takes a stand against the modern day prohibition
- Graphic Designers are finding a whole new way to terrify you
- It looks like you’re using paper totally wrong
- Wait what?
- The tech world can say sexism in every single language
- Is this NSFW? Either way, you’ll feel weird, wish you could unsee it, and probably watch it again every time someone you know posts it on facebook.

Summer Jackets for Summer Nights

Don’t tell us this scenario isn’t familiar: It’s May. You’re checking the weather forecast for the week on your phone, and there it is—the first 80 degree temperature break. Done. All fall/winter clothes into storage, it’s time to let your summer items blossom out of their sad, boxed existence. Then there’s an evening, you’re sleeveless and gleeful, feeling all “Summer Nights.” There’s a bit of a breeze but you tell yourself you should be fine. The sun sets and the breeze intensifies. Reality sets in: you’re doomed. This night is not gonna be fun, because you’re going to spend every moment outside shivering, with your teeth clenched and goosebumps all over. 

Overzealous reactions to warm weather happen to the best of us, but you’re not powerless. You have options: The summer jacket. This summer has been kind to us as far as heat stroke inducing days, but that means evenings have been regularly nippy. Don’t let it happen to you.

Here’s our favorite summer jackets up for the tucking.

For the hyper-adjusted, glitchy-eyed, adderall-induced members of society, I highly recommend sitting through a performance by FlucT, an art collective made up of performance artists Monica Mirabile and Sigrid Lauren. I caught a performance during Art Basel Miami Beach last year and it was love at first erratic ecstatic convulsion. Their performances are at the same time raw and choreographed, graceful and glitchy, delicate and powerful, and invite the audience to dissect their own societal conditioning. Their work addresses issues of “sexuality, control, and technology reflecting in the 2010’s commercial saturated climate” and has been accurately described as “a strange seduction.” For their latest piece, Hardening, Monica and Sigrid collaborated with multi-disciplinary artist Fin in a one-time-only takeover performance at a Lower East Side chandelier shop. Fluct’s provocative performances, video work and choreography has been seen in over 60 venues internationally and has been recognized by numerous Museums including The Queens Museum. They have produced three of their own large scale choreographed productions, and collaborate with touring musicians including Pictureplane and MNDR.

I asked FlucT to answer my questions in GIFs. (All GIFs made by FlucT for Bib + Tuck.)

RIP BOP Magazine

image

That’s right. You probably pushed down, into the recesses of your memory, the days you scanned the magazine stands for BOP and Tiger Beat to acquire those sweet posters of their cover darlings and fantasize about the day you’ll run into J.T.T. and he’ll instantly fall in love with you and even though you’re way too young to date him, he’ll be like, “I’ll wait for you,” but not in a creepy way. Well now the people responsible for those fanciful pipe dreams are closing the doors on BOP for good. They’ve been publishing since 1983 under Laufer Media, which also puts out Tiger Beat and which will remain as the only one of these types of teen mags in circulation. In retrospect— I’m curious about the adults who put these magazines together—like…isn’t that… kinda…weird?

Helen thinks you should never go a week without pizza, and we couldn’t agree more. See what else she has to say in this week’s Tuck and Tell.

[[MORE]]

Tell me about the item. 
Optic white ASOS boots, tucked about three weeks ago. I love them because they give my outfit just the right amount of edge! 

What’s the tuck that got away?
The tuck that got away is definitely the vintage Chanel backpack (who doesn’t love a little Chanel).
 
Your closet is filled mostly with: 
Topshop, Opening Ceremony, and American Apparel. 

Your dream closet is filled with:
Jacquemus, Alexander Wang, Acne, and Comme Des Garçons.
 
What’s the best piece of advice you’ve ever gotten? 
Work hard, be successful, but stay humble. (Thanks, mama.)
 
Best piece of advice you’ve ever given? 
If you want it bad enough, you will get it.
 
Last spontaneous thing you did. 
Took a motorcycle out to Coney Island for the 4th.
 
Favorite social media platform.  
Instagram!
 
Trend you want to die. 
Oversized text on clothing and CROCS (ew)!
 
Go-to coffee order. 
Iced Coffee with a splash of milk. 
 
Favorite app you’ve downloaded recently. 
Uber!
 
What’s your go-to outfit when your alarm doesn’t go off, your running 15 minutes late and don’t have time to plan out your look? 
All black, but the shoes matter so I will pair it with a cute heeled bootie! 
 
If you had to send a text to your 13-year-old self, what would it say? 
RELAX. You aren’t going to see any of these people ever again!
 
Finish these sentences:
I carry… My Céline.
I… woke up like this while Beyonce… is drunk in love.
Never go... a week without… pizza.
There’s no such thing as… too much avocado

We Spent Too Much Time On Kylie Jenner’s Instagram

image

Kylie Jenner is 16 years old. You wouldn’t know this by her already defined sense of style (I could barely match jeans and a t-shirt back then), nor by her vast collection of Balenciaga (I’m 21 and wear only Zalenciaga, amirite?), and especially not by the fact that her parents let her dye her hair a million colors and jokingly called her a Skittle (had I pulled that stunt with my folks… LOL nah I was too scared). Despite having basically grown up on screen, we get surprisingly little Kylie on Keeping Up With the Kardashians — although she’s arguably one of the most interesting characters of the family. In the earlier seasons, she was just an adorable little kid in the background… Suddenly, the Kardashians were back from hiatus and Kendall was modeling and Kylie straight up skipped puberty (a moment in WTF Reality TV history that also received no air time). 

What we don’t get on the reality show, we see through her Instagram account, which has over 10 million followers and is a careful curation of what it’s like to be incredibly rich, incredibly pretty, and incredibly well-connected. (When your brother-in-law is Yeezus, you wear concert tee’s every other day and are gifted Givenchy on the regular, ya know?) Yes, it’s a monsoon of privilege… but there’s something about it that’s just so fascinating. Her vague and awkward attempts at poetic captions are vastly entertaining, although not as much as her celeb BFF/possible celeb BF Jaden Smith’s Twitter account. So we’re going to try to interpret them. All images via Kylie Jenner’s Instagram.

What she probably meant: “I needed to go through my all-black angst phase in one day, because fame rushes you through youth.”
