Team Fabulous Obsession- Kara Ross Jewelry!!

Team Fabulous got to take a look at designer Kara Ross’s jewelry collection yesterday in the Circa accessory salon in Lincoln Center, Mercedez-Benz Fashion Week. Read why we love Kara Ross & her jewelry so much!

Written by: Canon Christine


 Kara Ross’s jewelry collection has a piece for everything. Always vibrant, and colorful her structured pieces give you a fierce boldness that can change any look!  Her pieces remind me of geometry, but in a good way!  Kara Ross’s jewelry is sold in major department stores and boutiques and has been featured in just about every major publication. She not only sells jewelry but also handbags & belts.

Kara’s constant use of color makes her pieces great, and perfect for any occasion. I would best describe her collections as classic edgy, because her pieces are traditional, but her use of shapes gives them the extra edge!

Yesterday in the Circa accessory salon Kara had gorgeous everything from bold cocktail rings to sleek clutches on display. You couldn’t help but stop in & take a peek at her pieces, celebrities and fashion lovers alike all took a stroll through the salon to see what she had.

Here were some of our faves!

Can you spell F-A-B  B-A-G !?!

The fine jewelry collections were just devine!

Kim Kardashian’s Wedding day is almost here!

Everyone’s favorite reality star turned mini mogul Kim Kardashian will  be taking a trip down the isle in a few days!

Written By: Canon Christine

Kim Kardashian is finally getting married!

She and fiance Kris Humphries of the New Jersey Nets are set to tie the knot August 20! It seems almost strange that Kim is the last Kardashian sister to settle down. Kourtney has adorable baby Mason and is still with Scott Disick, and Khloe is happily married to Lamar Odom (aka Lam Lam) of the LA Lakers.

Either way we’re sure the wedding is going to  be a lavish and over the top production!  Some are comparing the upcoming nuptials to the Royal Wedding. While some may argue that the comparison is a bit of a stretch, this wedding will definitely be an event!!

Of course Kim’s list of invited guests has only the hottest celebs. The list includes Beyonce and Jay ZKeeping up with the Kardashians producer Ryan Seacreast,  Jennifer LopezKanye WestJustin Beiber, and even our favorite Jersey fist pumper Snooki! The wedding will be televised (of course) in a two-part special that is set to air in October appropriately titled Kim’s Fairytale Wedding.

Instead of spending money on the wedding, Kim is getting paid!  PEOPLE magazine is paying $1 million for exclusive access to the event. And allegedly her 20.5 carat dollar engagement ring was given to her by jewelry designer Lorraine Shwartz, in return for press and publicity!!!

Kim’s fabulous $2 million engagement ring!

This wedding is most definitely going to be MAJOR!!!! We can’t to see Kim’s dress, the bridal party and the what all the guests wear! Be on the lookout for our Fairytale Wedding best dressed list!

MUSIC MONDAY: ‘HOUSEWIVES’ STARS IN THE MAKING YAY OR NAY

To Jersey to New York these ‘Housewives’ are really trying to make it big in the music industry. Yet, do they stand the chance to be put on top, you be the judge.

Read on and tell us who you think will be the next music sensation.

Melissa Gorga is not the first housewife and surely not the last  housewife to release a song and try to transfer from TV to music. Take a look at the housewives music and tv career, well soon to be career.

Atlanta’s Housewife Kim Zolciak - “Tardy for the Party” and- “Google Me”.

Click to listen to Tardy for the Party

New York’s Housewife Countess LuAnn- “Money Can’t Buy You Class.”

Click to listen to Money can’t buy you class

New Jersey’s housewife Danielle Staub - “Real Close”

Click to listen to Real Close

Well, being that all of the housewives seem to be getting into the music biz (well trying to at least), another one of the Real Housewives who can be added to that list and  is attempting to break into the music world this time around is New Jeresy’s Melissa Gorga.  Melissa Gorga who is the pageant diva on the New Jersey Housewives released her new single, “On Display”, to On-Air with Ryan Seacrest early August. The song “On Display” talks about living life to the fullest and how people want her to cascade downhill.  Let’s just say Melissa is calling all the girls out, HEYYYYY!

Take a peak at one of the chorus lines, it says it all: “On display, each and every day, everybody is waiting on me to fall, everybody is waiting on me to crawl, but they can keep on waiting on me.” These lyrics aren’t surprising being that Melissa portrays herself as a tough fashionable diva on and off camera of the Real Housewives of New Jersey.

Listen to the full song below and you be the judge:

CLICK TO LISTEN

Compared to these songs, we here at Team Fabulous think Melissa’s music career is definitely one of the best of all the housewives, but only time will tell if she can really make it.

Now it is time for you to be the judge. Which of these housewives is your favorite?
