Melissa Gorga is following in the footsteps of some of her fellow housewives by trying on a new career hat — designer. The Real Housewives of New Jersey star is set to premiere the Melissa Gorga Collection this July on HSN.
Despite the extravagant jewelry that Melissa may flaunt in her everyday life, her pieces are meant to be affordable statement pieces that are wearable with any look. "The collection is very versatile and features high-fashion statement pieces that are trendy and take you from day to night," she told Us Weekly exclusively. "The overall tone of the collection feels like a mix of sexy and sophisticated where you can wear a piece with a blazer or a black dress and a killer heel and rock it either way."

The recent author of Love Italian Style also noted that this is not some out-of-the-blue money-maker, but instead something she has long been passionate about. "I have always loved fashion and styling with accessories. Since I was a girl, I would spend hours playing with my mother's jewelry. With this collection, I wanted to produce something fresh that was luxurious and bold, but accessible for stylish women at any age."
I wonder if she has any pieces that look good with orange that she could gift her sister-in-law Teresa Giudice's new county-issued jumpsuit?? Even if she did, the two have never really gotten along, so she may not want to share.
The new line includes 24 pieces that range in price from $20-$100 — making it affordable for anyone. She included many statement necklaces — much like the one she is wearing in the photo above from her recent birthday — which seemed to be the plan behind the line. "I've always admired one-of-a-kind statement pieces so I wanted to create a collection of my own," the mom of three tells Us. "When designing the collection, I was looking to create those 'wow' pieces that people would stop you and say, 'Where did you get that?'"
