My Thoughts
This “Stuff Pack” is a fashion forward gaming experience. Diesel is a very popular and stylish designer brand, so I was really excited to have my Sims step their style up a few notches in the game. When I was going through the new clothing options, I was a little bit disappointed though. Not as many items were added in as I thought would have been. Also, the majority of the clothing wasn’t as appealing as I had hoped. Sure, some are fabulous and make for some stunning outfits. However, most won’t be used by me.

The home décor items that were added are more on the urban side. This isn’t my style of choice. However, some do work very well for certain Sims in my neighborhoods. Again, not as many of these objects were added as I would have thought.

Overall, this is a good “Stuff Pack” but it isn’t one that I would call a favorite. It offers a variety of clothing and home décor items, but doesn’t add enough to really justify the price. If you are looking for more, I’d suggest going with another one such as “The Sims 3: Town Life Stuff Pack.”
