Real Simple

Anna Marie Pavone, 71


What moment in your life do you wish had been photograph­ed?

Saying goodbye to relatives at age 7 and boarding a ship to the U.S. from Italy.

The book you could read again and again:

The Fountainhe­ad because it reinforces my determinat­ion to not compromise when I feel strongly about my dreams.

What’s the coziest thing in your home?

My books. I have a special nook in my bedroom where I keep them. I was exposed to books at a young age, as my grandmothe­r read to me on a regular basis. To this day, reading just gives me inner peace. Thank you, Nonna, for this beautiful gift!

Most recent bargain?

Leather leggings, marked down to $99 from $250. What a bargain and treat. Absolute delicious feel.

Most recent splurge?

Louis Vuitton handbag. Wearing it reminds me of beautiful Paris. It’s not about a status symbol. I just love what the bag represents to me. You can’t put a price on what gives you pleasure.
