Bad Ads

Ooof. This ad is BAD. Real bad. And so is the jewelry. Shudder.

Rina Limor Calypso Jewelry

Rina Limor ad as seen in the December 2009 issue of Elle magazine.


P.S. If you like this jewelry -- particularly the Easter egg necklace -- I really don't think we can be friends.

Bah, they took those leftover Eggies and bedazzled them!!!
Poor thing..she can't even bring herself to smile and pretend she likes this stuff.

♥Aubrey said...

Rainbow Bright could be her bff!!!
That's a little too much frosting for me :)-

Marjorie said...

That looks like costume jewelry for kids that you could find at the Dollar Tree right next to the plastic tiaras and princess wands! Wow. That's bad. Really, Elle? Really?

erin@designcrisis said...

What you talking bout, Willis? That lady is SOPHISTIMICATED.

Down and Out Chic said...

hahaha, i kind of sort of like the ring, kind of in a weird way. it might be cool w/out the glitter... can we still be friends?

Yelena R. said...

Haha that looks like something you find at a dollar store :D

Summer B. said...

Bedazzled eggs, Ela? HAHAH!

Ok. Awful. Just awful!

Au Lapin Blanc said...

Does it still count if I want to eat the easter eggs? I don't think I want potential friendship abandoned because I relate most things to my stomach...

brittany said...

um i kind of dig that ring. is this the end of our blog-lationship?

Char said...

it reminds me of a necklace that Wilma Flintstone would wear if she came into a lot of money....or maybe not. I think maybe even Wilma would have a bit more style.

Melanie's Randomness said...

uH yeahhh that's a bad ad. It totally looks like those lil chocolate wrapped easter egg candies. I'd be too afraid to eat it. Too much just wayyyy too much. The lady's hair & make-up kinda remind me of the addicted to love music video girls too a lil. heh.

Iva said...

omg! No thought process behind this stuff. Even the model looks uncomfortable. I guess it makes for a pretty easy, but boring, Easter egg hunt? no searching needed. ;)

Happy Wednesday my friend! :)

Lee the Hot Flash Queen said...

Unappealing, uninviting, unexciting.

Caroline said...

eeek! This just screams call girl. Can't you just see this woman sitting at a high end hotel bar? Good God...way too much going on...

Brooke said...

The multicolored "Calypso" reminds me of Google. What a waste of perfectly good sapphires.

Dream Sequins said...

I don't wanna be friends.
I don't wanna be friends.

OK I just lifted that from Lady Gaga. I've been quoting that all week long. LOL.

bananas. said...

they definitely don't hide the fact that underpaid underaged workers are making that crap. who would wear that?! gahhh!

"for those who want more"?! HA! cool slogan.

Diana said...

2009??? I thought it was 80's!!

Sher said...

I like 3 of the pave bracelets. But the necklaces do look like "pop beads" Does anyone remember those as a kid?

amy @ switz~art said...

this is a 2009 ad?! looks like something from the 80's. BAD 80's! yucky!

Diane said...

this looks straight out of the 70s or 80s! eewww.

Kristin said...

The ring's not so bad. Ah ha. I am surprised that that is a contemporary ad. Maybe they were trying to channel a bygone era? ah ha

...love Maegan said...

" ...I really don't think we can be friends" ...aAHAHAHAHAHAHHAHAHAHAH

love it.

particularly Hershey's wrapped easter chocolates ...which I will put in my mouth all the livelongday!

HIDEOUS!

It's her pose that does it for me.

hope505 said...

((Homer Simpson voice))
...mmmmm....chocolate....

70's or 80's? I was thinking all the way back to the wtf fifties! *haha!* A necklace Elvis would be proud to give to any special lady.
* ; p

Morgan said...

YEESH! That is bad. I don't even know what to say beyond that...

Gabbi said...

Our friendship is safe... so ugly! Thought it was an 80's thing maybe. Bet the prices are ridiculous too.

Liz said...

Oh god the necklace reminds me of those Easter egg chocolate with the pastel foil wrappers.

DesBisoux said...

just don't see what's wrong with that jewelry. it screems classy, understated chic. no really. can't see what you don't like about it.

i left a wee somethig for you at mine...
xxx

The Haute-Shopper said...

This looks like something out of the 80s! Hahaha... I've actually seen really tacky jewelry ads like these in the London subway stations (amber jewelry and models with glittery eyeshadow). It looks like she has strands of Easter eggs hanging around her neck...

Oh, and I would NEVER judge you for owning a Faconnable shirt! ;-) I'm sure if you ever wore it again, you'd probably wear it with a hint of irony... you know, the same way goths wear pink to mock the girly girls?

Missy said...

Our friendship is safe! EEwww!

diane said...

It just goes to show you, all the money in the world still doesn't buy taste.

Waxy said...

Cuffs of vomit. love it...haha

nicole addison said...

ick ick. 2009 i was thinking like 1980. yea no good at all!

Sam said...

Far out! Totally ghastly!

Gabby said...

This is so wrong. I CANNOT believe it's a Dec 09 ad! WTF people?! Our friendship is very safe!

And I'm having leftover eggplant parm for lunch!!!!! :)

TERI REES WANG said...

Phew..I thought we time warped back to 1992!

Simply Mel said...

agreed...necklace is horrid!

Raez said...

wrong wrong wrong!

did the maker of this ad go backwards in time to grab a bad 90's model and stop by a toys 'r' us during easter for the jewelry??

blehh!

LENORENEVERMORE said...

bad art direction for sure...but the jewelry pieces are quite nice...I must stress; still want us to be friends okieee!

Stevie said...

Bahah Oh man this is bad. It does look exactly like the easter reese's eggs. Which I would gladly wear a necklace of.

Elizabeth Marie said...

WE'RE STILL FRIENDS!!!!

WTF is up with her makeup too?! Yikes.

Toothfairy said...

ASSHOLE BOYFRIEND said...

My two favorite bad ads.

Alicia said...

whoa....looks like the folks at Elle hit the crackpipe a little hard that day....yikes.

LENORENEVERMORE said...

Thanks sweetie, for your kind words...hope the mammogram was all good news huh?! xo*

Felicia said...

THIS AD IS FROM 2009????????????? I seriously thought it was all super old!!

And if you're telling me mixing a buttload of easter egg jewels with pearls is wrong, then I don't want to be right!

Alicia (The Red Deer) said...

Well we can be friends then :)

anotherfishinthesea said...

But c'mon drollgirl, don't we all want to wear things that we could eat around our necks!?
I think candy necklaces might be classier.

Hanako66 said...

THAT is from 2009?!!

lol

Clorivak said...

W in the Double F?!? bahahaha...2009, more like 1989. Ugly ass ad, but makes me giggle..and shudder profusely.
hahaha..love the fact you posted this..hilarity.

kys said...

It looks like it came from the Joan Rivers collection on QVC. (And if someone else already said that - sorry. Cuz I didn't read all the comments tonight.)

blueviolet said...

The Easter egg necklace is definitely the most offensive of the "collection."

creative kerfuffle said...

shit, i guess i'll have to return your christmas gift then. dammmit.

carly said...

totally makes me hungry.
bad idea ad person, bad idea.

Kaz said...

Aloha

I thought this was from the 80's

I'm sure in the 80's I would've wanted one of those

Oh, hang on...maybe not :)

Rachel Follett said...

Quite shocked this ad is from 2009!! It looks straight out of the 80's. How funny.

miriam said...

oh dear, what an ad. don't like it, but i still love Elle!

Cheryl said...

Hee, hee, 80's for sure, the ad reminds me of Dynasty. I don't like jewelry much at all except for a drop pendant now and then.

Conversation Pieces said...

Maybe it's from the 80s and they're just doing a bit of recycling...

Juani said...

This chick definitely time traveled from the 80's,straight out of her perfume ad,into this hideous jewellery ad.I don't know what scares me most,the jewellery or the horrible make up job?

Kellie said...

Does it count if I only like it b/c it looks like the little butterfinger egg candies that come out during Easter so I want to eat it? :)

Jyun said...

Milk chocolate easter eggs in colourful foil wraps. How can you not like them? I'm not gonna be friends with a choco hater :P

Jenni said...

But I wanted to get you that necklace as a gift for Christmas... not into it? Dang it! I guess I'll have to find something else now... ;)

Chessa! said...

lololololol

Phoenix said...

But...but...what if I WANT jewelry that looks like I just grabbed Easter candy off the shelf and dipped it into glitter glue??

WT F I love this jewellery !! Its may look like Easter eggs but its well adorable if you would use it with the right dress and not have so many necklaces at the same time, its all about your own way of thinking.
