Meta Makeover is working on a very exciting show, because we are making over a cafe for the sims dedicated to the Warner Brothers show, Gossip Girl.
So Saffia needed outfits that are sharp and elegant enough for the fashionable Upper East Side!
“I love the smartness of this outfit,” says Saffia. “Perfect for a business meeting. But I found that the shirt and tie were a little too heavy for relaxing in the cafe – I wanted a look that was just as sharp but slightly less business-like. Remove the collar and tie – and there you are!”
For filming in the studio, Saffia went with an old favourite, Verun in black.
“It’s a lovely dress,” says Saffia, “simple, smart and elegant, and the shawl collar is really flattering too. As soon as we started planning the show, I knew Verun was going to make an appearance.”
But today it’s teamed with something new – a really beautiful necklace.
“This is a creation of Gwen Carillon, the designer on the show,” says Saffia. “As well as furniture, Gwen makes the most wonderful jewellery – she is an expert at torturing prims to make the most wonderful necklaces – and ear-rings, bracelets and other pieces too! The necklace I’m wearing is part of a set called Dusk to Dawn, and it’s available from Gwen’s store, Elements in Design.
And, of course, Saffia makes an appearance in a third Ivalde outfit in the show – (you’ll find a clue here!) but you’ll have to look quickly!
