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.
