Sigh, Capri. When I took Home Ec in middle school, we had to do some project that involved ripping photos/ads out of old magazines from the 70’s and 80’s. I found a cigarette ad, for Virginia Slims or something, that had the tagline “She’s going to Capri and she’s not coming back!” And it was like the heavens opened up and a choir of angels sang out and I knew I would spend the rest of my life in pursuit of that Virginia Slims tagline.
HOLD UP I just found photos of the original ad (it was a whole campaign!) online—the tagline is actually “gone to Capri” which explains why I had trouble googling it before. Images to come.
