These are a few of my favorite [everyday] things

I wanted to take a moment to celebrate some of my all time favorite ad campaigns from stores that you can find in your local mall. I think these company’s produce ads that are just wonderful. And now, without further adieu…


Now, usually I leave athletic activity to stronger and more coordinated members of my family. However, Nike ads exude a power, strength and agility that really makes me wanna “just do it”. Perhaps one day I too will be Michael Jordan.

Victoria’s Secret ads aren’t anything amazing, really. It’s just girls in lingerie. If you’re a girl reading this, you see yourself in lingerie (or at least underwear) everyday. In fact, your lingerie is probably from Victoria’s Secret because the brand has poised itself to make women believe that there is no other place in this world where you can purchase underwear (and really, is there any place that has better undies? That 5 for $25 deal is amazing.). A N Y W A Y, the reason why I love, adore, and can hardly tear my dark brown eyes away from VS ads is because of their fabulous models. It’s like they make them in a lab or something. They are fabulous.

Talk about ad campaigns with great messages, eh? United colors of Benetton is all about tolerance and acceptance. Hence the name of the store. Not only do they have a great massage, their ad campaigns are gorgeous, clean, symmetrical, bold and colorful. Fabulous!


Gap ads just make me happy. The vibrant use of color, the expressiveness of the “models” (and by models I mean actors), the plain backdrop. The Gap always has great, simple ads that just sell their clothes. No frills… I like that.

So, now I dying to ask. What are you favorite ads? R E M E M B E R, they have to be places from everyday, local malls :0).

    Love this post! Really great idea, instead of just featuring the high fashion designers. I really love the Nike ads – so cool – and the Gap ad is just adorable! You’re right…Gap just focuses on the clothes, the way the ad should be. AA ads are kind of like that too, but the models are usually wearing less clothes haha

    Gap has done some really adorable ads.
    Benetton has gotten itself into trouble before, remember the kissing nuns?
