All my life I have been shopping at Macy’s. I can find a Macy’s in just about any city I travel to and I can always trust that what I’ll be shopping is fantastic. My go-to section in-store and online? Impulse Contemporary. So it was super exciting to hear I’d be the face for this campaign. I gravitate towards Macy’s Impulse due to it’s brands for cheeky tee’s, incredible denim, and perfect summer dresses. I’m talking about brands like Sanctuary, Rachel Rachel Roy, Max Studio London, Articles of Society, Suburban Riot, and William Rast. Each brand is elevated in their own way, yet still extremely comfortable and effortless. Impulse Contemporary has curated their shop to fit my forever evolving summer style.

Perfect if you’re looking for an elevated Chinatown experience. This stunning restaurant is situated on the cutest block: Doyer Street. The best street to explore before you sit down at one of the banquet booths with a good glass of vino to calm your nerves on that first date. Once you walk in, you’ll love its romantic ambience, stunning decor, and super cool scene. It’s certainly a trendy place to impress your dates…with a delicious new twist on classic Chinese dishes. I whipped out my favorite dress, inspired by the cheongsam. Time to book that reservation asap.

The Space carries a variety of bohemian, vintage inspired men’s clothing, shoes, and accessories that will get you looking dapper in no time. We’re talking everything from faded denim blazers to the latest most coveted man bag to snag for the office. It’s the best place to find some cool, new designer labels. Oh, and you can always take a seat at their barber’s chair should you need that last minute trim.
Gotham Gym feels intimate…and of course, it’s super badass. It’s small with no crowds, no lines, and no nonsense. They’ll whip you into shape by focusing on cardio, intense pad work in the ring, and full body conditioning. Trust me, girls like guys who box. Just don’t go creeping on gals or trying to impress them with your bench presses. Stay cool and avoid the pitfalls mentioned above. You’ll be sweating like a star in no time.
Dylana and I travel together for numerous projects around the globe. Being sisters makes constantly being on the road easy and a lot more fun. Whether it be styling for a shoot campaign. Making numerous pit-stops at in-n-out. Figuring out what the heck to wear in the morning. Dealing with stress. Finding that balance. What do the Suarez Sisters do with only 2 days in our hometown of LA? Well, here you have it. Plus, the first peek inside at the & Other Stories LA atelier.
