And the third instalment of Tributes Revisited, back to the summer of 2012 which was the first year I wrote Tribute Reviews, albeit not quite to the same extent that I do nowadays, they were quite a lot more brief in 2012! There were 6 releases that year: Chanel, Anna Sui, Nicholas Kirkwood, Jean Paul Gaultier, Frankie Morello and Dolce&Gabbana. They were a pretty good in terms of a range of styles and it's fun to get new things. For me this isn't a season I remember so much, so this was a good chance for me to reignite interest in some of the great pieces that we got! A lot of these pieces have been re-released in Callie's Picks too so there are many you can get now for good prices in the Bazaar =)

Of course our first release was Chanel, a firm favourite - I know because I wrote that I spent a lot of money in my review, haha! I really still quite like this one, there's fun pieces which are also wearable and still look good in today's trends and there was a great range in the store. I've gone through quite a lot of pieces from this release over the years with changing tastes and I'm sure this will still be the case in the future. There's been a lot of these pieces released in CP so I'm sure many of you have some of these items tucked away in your wardrobes already - I think maybe I need to look for more in the Bazaar to give a try to^ I love the Sea Foam pieces for sure, they're definitely lasting in terms of colour, style and design =D

This was really our first look into a designer which had a single focus - shoes! I loved this collection when it was released, some really fun pieces and I'm wishing I still had more of them^ Shoes can add great things to a minimal outfit, they can really pop and add all the detail that you need - I am truly loving the Flower Shop Bow Heels for the frilling bow and the perspex panel over the toes, plus the colour is a beautiful one for summer^ The store had some great floral pieces and I'm still on the search to find the white floral pair, those will make my summer stylings for sure!

And our very first Dolce & Gabbana release, it sure is a memorable one particularly with that cool supermarket-based interior. This one focused on jewels and gems, particularly with the set of playsuits which took the focus of one floor of the store - I like the clothing though, there's some quite wearable pieces in there that work out really nicely and some I'm sure we've forgotten a little^ The accessories are quite great in this release, such a variety to work with and some memorable styles.
And someone else very much enjoying the clothing still too, Funopler wearing the Blush Lace DG Top, it's a cute summer piece with a crop and a sweet detailed V and in a great colour, it's pretty nice I'm wishing I had one to style too^ This looks fantastic with this Chanel dress worn as a skirt, the colours are a perfect match and I'm such a fan of all the pink in the accessories too!
