Street Style: Picture-Perfect Pair
These two add flair to old glamour.
I’m obsessed with the show Mad Men, and Jessica and Arturo looked like a modern Betty and Don Draper. Find out where their fabulous clothes came from, and what they like to read, listen to, and eat.
What are you wearing?
Jessica: My coat is vintage Marithé + François Girbaud that my mother bought in the ’70s for skiing. The shoes are oxfords by Frye, and I have on a dress that you can’t really see, but I bought it at the Tannery.
Arturo: I have on shoes from Allen-Edmonds, pants from Theory. My coat is from J.Press in Cambridge.
Where are you from?
Jessica: We’re both from Texas. Well, Arturo’s from Mexico, originally. We both moved here from Texas for school.
Favorite place to get drinks or dinner in Boston?
Arturo: We like Giacomo’s in the North End. And in Cambridge, where we are most of the time, we like Hungry Mother and Craigie on Main.
What are you listening to these days?
Arturo: Jessica’s been listening to Kanye’s new album, and we love Daft Punk…
Jessica: For working music we listen to Chopin and Beethoven’s symphonies. For fun: Daft Punk, Deadmau5, MGMT.
What have you read recently?
Jessica: I actually just finished The Wind Up Bird Chronicle by Haruki Murakami. I loved it. My impression is that it’s his magnum opus.
Arturo: And I’ve been working on David Foster Wallace’s The Infinite Jest for a while now. It’s long. But it’s pretty good.
