How to Store Your Winter Wardrobe

While some men may not necessarily need to rotate how their closet space is used as the seasons change, doing so will not only give you the peace of mind that comes with having an uncrowded closet but it might also be beneficial for the wearable life of your garments in the long run.

Before we begin with the techniques of proper storage, here are a few things you may want to consider:

Time To Get Rid Of Unused Or Damaged Garments

First, as long as you’re already going through your closet, now would be a good time to get rid of garments that you really aren’t wearing anymore. Heavily worn or damaged items should be discarded, items needing minor repairs should be fixed up, and things that are in good shape but you don’t really see yourself wearing anymore should be donated. As a very general rule of thumb, if you find that an item has stayed on its hanger for more than a year unworn, it’s probably a good sign that you can get rid of it. Some people are more strict with this and say that you should part with things if you haven’t worn them in two months but you can decide what timetable is right for you.

Clean Up!

Additionally, this may be a good time to clean the closet itself as well. Vacuum the floor, wipe down the shelves, and so on. Speaking of cleaning before they’re stored, all of your winter wardrobe items should be thoroughly cleaned. After all, you don’t want dirt, dust, and other debris settling into your garments while they’re in storage for multiple months. Additionally, insects like moths and silverfish are naturally attracted to lingering scents on clothing, even scents that are imperceptible to humans.

To begin our specific cleaning instructions then, footwear should first be wiped down with a damp cloth then a clean dry cloth and then finally, given a good pass with a shoe brush. Polishing with saddle soap or leather conditioner could also be a good idea at this time and for suede, you’ll want to use cleaning tools that are specifically designed for that material. Make sure to wipe down the interiors of your footwear if you’re able as well. Also, giving footwear a day to sit and deodorize with something like a sachet full of baking soda for at least a day before storing can also be beneficial and while we, here at the Gentleman’s Gazette, advocate for keeping your footwear in tip-top shape on a day to day basis with high-quality shoe trees, natural cedar models may actually wick out too much of footwear’s natural oils if they’re left in for months at a time. With that said, the best way to keep your footwear in shape while storing it for months is to fill it with acid-free tissue paper scrunched up tightly.

Hats should also be wiped down and brushed but with a softer garment brush, a shoe brush would be too abrasive for that kind of material.

Most other items should be laundered as normal which means either hand washing or machine washing in mesh garment bags and then left to dry on a drying rack.

You can prevent insect damage to your clothes by using a natural repellent like lavender. Although something like mothballs may seem like the easy solution, they’re actually bad for storage with your garments over time. Not only do mothballs carry an unpleasant odor but the compounds that are used to make them aren’t exactly healthy after all. Think of it this way, if moths naturally know to keep away from them then humans probably should too. Cedar repels moths well but as we mentioned before, leaving clothing in direct contact with cedar for months at a time can dry it out or wick out some of the natural oils. Also, if you want to use something like a cedar chest, the gaps in the construction of those types of containers will sometimes still let insects in.

Best Ways To Store Your Garments

You can start by placing heavier items like denim, other trousers, and coats at the bottom of a breathable cotton storage container. You can find both soft-bodied models and ones with reinforcement at the sides, whichever you would prefer.

Medium weight items like sweaters come next in the storage container and then lightweight items like shirts can be placed on top. Delicate items like sweaters, ties, or scarves made from materials like cashmere, can also be wrapped in acid-free tissue paper for an extra layer of protection.

Also, you can place your cashmere items in a plastic bag and put them in the freezer for a day or two before storing them just to make sure that the extreme cold kills any moths or larvae that might be present.

Refrain from using wire hangers
Refrain from using wire hangers

Why not just use plastic storage containers for the long term then? Simply stated, when any garment is left in a plastic bin or garment bag and exposed to light, yellowing of the garment can occur. Further, the lack of air circulation inside most plastic containers can lead to moisture accumulation or even mold if the containers are stored improperly.

It’s important that items not to be worn for a long period of time be neatly folded instead of left on the hanger, this is especially true for sweaters. Left to hang, garments made from wool, cashmere, acrylic, or polyester will become misshapen over time as gravity pulls them in different directions across the hanger. Cotton garments are more resilient than these other types but still, folding is always preferable to hanging for long-term storage.

Genuine Fur
Genuine Fur

If you do have a genuine fur coat, you can consider keeping it hung up but at the same time, you might want to consider getting it professionally stored. Real fur needs to be kept in climate-controlled spaces at temperatures of around 50 degrees Fahrenheit or 10 degrees Celsius and roughly 50% humidity to be kept in good condition over the long term. If you are leaving anything hung up, opt for a shaped or padded hanger over a standard plastic hanger and it goes without saying, no wire hangers ever. Before storing coats, remember also to remove any items from the pockets, meaning both the interior and exterior pockets.

Lighter weight trousers, as well as sweaters and shirts,  can also be rolled instead of folded. This way, you can stack them horizontally instead of vertically which may mean more maximization of space in your storage containers.

You can store footwear on the floor or a shelf of your closet in the open air but to be even more safe, putting it back into its original box or another cotton storage container would be a better idea. Additionally, things like hanging boot racks are also available.

Your cotton containers and any other loose garments that you may have should be stored in an environment that is dark, dry, clean, and cool. What we mean by cool here is about sixty-five degrees Fahrenheit or eighteen degrees Celsius. Bright environments will cause your clothing to fade. Hot or damp environments are just going to lead to mildew and of course, a dusty environment will just get your recently cleaned clothes dirty again.

Closet with lots of natural daylight
Closet with lots of natural daylight

Don’t try to be overly efficient with your storage containers and overfill them either. Remember that space and breathability are key to making sure that your garments have proper air circulation so that you don’t get moisture buildup or excess wrinkling. If you need to buy a few more cotton storage containers to make sure that everything is stored properly, it’s an investment that will give you a great return in the long run.

If you do need to be especially mindful of maximizing your storage space, keep in mind that some garments can be stored inside of others. For example, you could take gloves and nest them inside of boots. Vacuum sealable storage bags can also come in handy but keep in mind that the wrinkles created from this process will be much harder to get out when you excavate your garments again in the fall and when it does come time to get your garments out of storage again, steaming them with a garment steamer should be able to get out any wrinkling or scents that have accumulated in the passing months.

Here’s one final tip for today, do remember to keep a couple of transitional pieces out of storage unless you’ve happened to wait until the middle of summer to put away all of your winter clothing. Having a few medium-weight pieces out of storage that you can wear for colder spring days is a good idea especially if you live in a part of the globe where spring can mean warmer days and cooler nights. For example, here in Minnesota where Gentleman’s Gazette headquarters is located, having a few of these transitional pieces will be smart over time.

With these tips at your disposal then, you should head into spring with a closet that’s neat and tidy and garments that are safely and tightly packed away until things get chilly again.

We’d like to know which of the tips we outlined today did you find most surprising or innovative. Let us know in the comments section below.

How I Make an Extra $800 a Month Reselling Thrift Store Clothes on eBay

Like any loyal reader of The Penny Hoarder, I know the value of thrift shops.

To cut expenses, I started shopping for clothes at places like Goodwill and Salvation Army. Thrifting is always hit or miss, but I’ve found many decent items.

One day, I found a pair of NYDJ jeans. I adore the brand for its fit and quality but hate the $ 120 price tag. I was so excited to see them at Goodwill — but they were about four sizes too small.

Dejected, I was about to put them back when it occurred to me that other people love the brand, too. I ended up buying the jeans for just $ 5.

I had an eBay account I’d used once before when I was moving and selling some silly knickknacks, so I listed the jeans there.

Pro Tip

If your thrift store find happens to have the original tags still attached, don’t remove them. Take photos of the clothing with the tags visible, as it gives the buyer a reason to trust your products.

I was utterly shocked when those jeans ended up selling for more than $ 50. That was my first introduction to the idea of reselling thrift store clothes for profit.

Now it’s how I supplement my income and build my savings.

How to Start Selling Clothes on eBay

I started very small.

I didn’t want to spend a lot on startup costs, so I set an initial budget of about $ 75.

I bought a cheap postal scale for $ 21 on Amazon and stocked up on three rolls of packaging tape from the dollar store. For shipping materials, I used USPS’s free flat rate envelopes.

I did some online research to find thrift stores in wealthier areas, where people were more likely to donate higher-end goods. I decided to focus solely on women’s clothing, since I’m more familiar with those brands.

Pro Tip

When selling your products on eBay, choose between auction-style listings — which can provide a faster sale — or “Buy It Now” price listings — which give you more control over the sale price.

I hit just one store and took home five pairs of jeans at $ 5 each, four cashmere sweaters for $ 3 each, two blazers for $ 6 each and one dress for $ 5, bringing my first batch of inventory’s total cost to $ 54.

I read online that a professional eBay listing template was essential, but I couldn’t find a free one to use. Instead, I started all my listings as auctions and offered free shipping. I set the starting price at the item’s purchase cost plus shipping and padded it by $ 2 to cover eBay’s seller fees.

Amazingly, each item went for $ 20-$ 30 over the minimums. I more than tripled my money.

Deciding What to Sell — and How to Sell It

When I realized this hobby could be profitable, I got ruthless in evaluating inventory.

I learned what brands sold well and which didn’t. J.Crew pieces sold instantly, while I could only sell Banana Republic sweaters and trousers; no one would bid on Banana Republic jeans.

If a sweater had even 1% of cashmere, it was a moneymaker — regardless of the brand name.

I started to learn about SEO to get my items in front of more people, and I taught myself some basic HTML using YouTube tutorials so I could build my own templates.

Pro Tip

Show up in searches by including as much description as you can in the title, including the brand, color, size, condition and unique features (or flaws).

I ordered business cards from VistaPrint and bought thank-you notes from the dollar store. Feedback is essential for any eBay seller — and I found mine went up when I included thank-yous.

As my profits grew, I began to get more elaborate. These investments took my business to the next level and increased my profits:


Possibly the best purchase I’ve made (and the most bizarre) is a leg form I bought off Amazon for $ 55.

With just legs and a butt, house guests seemed to think I was a crazy person, but it made pants and jeans look ten times better — and increased the bids on those items.

I also have an expandable dress form for tops and dresses, which was a godsend. It showed the shape and lines of pieces and made them look far nicer than they would have on a hanger.

Dry Cleaning

Some thrift store clothes have been hanging in musty places for some time — and they smell like it.

Rather than spending a fortune at a professional dry cleaner, I throw these items into the dryer with the Woolite DryCleaning system. For less than $ 10, the kit makes full loads of clothes smell fresh and new.

Fabric Shaver

Cashmere is a huge seller.

Many sweaters I find are gorgeous, but were donated because they have heavy pilling.

Five minutes with a $ 9 fabric shaver and those sweaters look brand new! They often sell for $ 50 and up.


Rather than ironing, I use a steamer to get wrinkles out for pictures. For less than $ 50, it makes items lay nicely on the dress forms.


For items too big for my dress form, clothespins are essential to show the garment’s shape and details.


I bought a $ 2 white sheet from Goodwill and pinned it to a wall for a clean photo backdrop.


I use Fotofuze, an online program that removes backgrounds from images, to give pictures of clothing a very professional look.

FotoFuze is free to use, but I pay $ 5 a month for a pro account so I can edit more photos.

What I Make Selling Clothes on eBay

Once I made upgrades with my photos and listings, my items started selling for much more.

After deducting expenses — inventory costs, plus shipping, eBay and Paypal fees — I regularly make between $ 500 and $ 800 a month in profit.

It’s a very part-time job. It usually only takes me about 10 to 15 hours a week to shop for items, take pictures, list items and ship them out.

The money has been excellent supplemental income and helped me significantly boost my savings. And with new clothing donations constantly coming in, I always have fresh inventory to sell.

Franco-Turkish Label Dice Kayek Opens First Store

CHIC BOUTIQUE: Dice Kayek is opening its first store.
Franco-Turkish designer Ece Ege, who created the label with her sister Ayse in 1992, has chosen the Parisian Left Bank for the brand’s first boutique, which will open on the Rue Saint Benoit at the end of June, to coincide with Paris couture week.
Taking over a former art gallery, the 1,600-square-foot space designed by Belgian architect Bernard Dubois will combine a boutique and a boudoir on the lower level, where clients will be able to discover the brand’s couture creations while sipping traditional Turkish coffee.
Dice Kayek stopped being part of the official couture show schedule in spring 2016, but still designs couture pieces for private clients. The brand now shows its ready-to-wear line during Paris Fashion Week in the form of presentations.
“Retail was never our priority,” Ege told WWD. “But since opening our shop-in-shop at the Galeries Lafayette a couple of years ago, there has been a real demand from customers for our own brick-and-mortar store. We wanted to create a space where the client feels looked after, pampered even. In this day and age, a boutique needs to be about exclusivity and one-to-one treatment.”
The chosen space had actually been tried and

This Oregon City Will Have the World’s Last Blockbuster Store

BEND, Ore. (AP) — The Blockbuster store in a city near central Oregon became the last one in the U.S. last year. And soon it’ll be the only one in the world.

The Bulletin reports that a Blockbuster store in Perth, Australia, is closing later this month, leaving the Bend franchise alone on the planet.

Blockbuster stores in Anchorage and Fairbanks, Alaska, closed last July.

The yellow-and-blue themed movie rental stores were once everywhere, with 9,000 stores worldwide.

But competition from on-demand movie-streaming services like Netflix and Hulu forced Blockbuster to declare bankruptcy in 2010.

The company closed all of its corporate-owned stores in 2014.

The remaining franchised stores kept closing until the Bend Blockbuster was the last one.

Manager Sandi Harding says the store is a tourist attraction and won’t close anytime soon.

Goodr Creates Free, Pop-Up Grocery Store for MLK Day

Goodr, a company that previously won the BLACK ENTERPRISE Tech Connext Pitch Competition is continuing to make a footprint in the community. The startup recently partnered with the Atlanta Hawks for a special volunteer service project as part of the Hawks court dedication at the Martin Luther King, Jr. Recreation & Aquatic Center, just in time for MLK day.

Approximately 100 Atlanta seniors were invited to partake in a signature Goodr “Pop-Up Grocery” event, where delicious surplus food from multiple Atlanta grocery partners was available for free.

“In the spirit of Dr. King’s commitment to service, the Hawks are proud to partner with Goodr to provide a pop-up grocery store for seniors at the MLK Recreation and Aquatic Center,” said Andrea Carter, VP of Corporate Social Responsibility & Inclusion. “This added element to our MLK court dedication allows us to serve not only the youth who play on the court, but seniors who often times need additional assistance when living on a fixed income.”

Goodr is a sustainable food surplus management platform that leverages technology to reduce food waste and combat hunger. They have produced a variety of events to distribute surplus food to needy Atlanta locals in creative and uplifting ways, but the “pop-up grocery store” seems to be a fan favorite.

“It’s an honor to be able to celebrate the life and legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King through the service acts that Goodr performs each and every day,” Jasmine Crowe, CEO, and founder of Goodr told BE. “To be able to partner with the Atlanta Hawks and State Farm is a dream come true for a startup from Atlanta,”

Every product is free to the guests and they range from fresh produce to prepared deli foods to fresh-baked bread. Everything is picked up that day from local vendors and partner stores and brought directly to the event. Each attendee gets their pick regarding what items they want to go home with.

The Hawks have been dedicated to the community as well. Off the court, the organization has built a culture of inclusion, diversity, and innovation, all with a touch of southern hospitality. Their goal is to build bridges through basketball, whether by constructing and refurbishing courts in Atlanta neighborhoods, providing scholarships to our basketball camps, or participating in unique partnership events like this one with Goodr.

How a dangerous piece of Android malware snuck into the Google Play store

Android Malware

Security researchers from Trend Micro recently unearthed a piece of Android malware known as Anibus that managed to sneak into the Google Play Store with a little bit of creativity. The malware in question was found on two separate apps, though neither of them were widely downloaded.

The way the apps managed to get on the Google Play Store is actually quite clever. In an effort to evade detection from emulators designed to detect behavior associated with malware, the malicious apps were uploaded to the Google Play Store but remained dormant unless motion was detected. Once motion was detected, the payload would spring into action.

You’ll Soon Be Able To Buy Bitcoin at the Grocery Store

Bitcoin might not be the red hot commodity it was a year ago, but it’s taking its biggest step yet toward the mainstream world.

Coinstar, whose machines are found in supermarkets across the country and help people get rid of their spare change, has announced plans to let people convert cash into Bitcoin.

“Coinstar is always looking for new ways to offer value to our consumers when they visit our kiosks, and Coinme’s innovative delivery mechanism along with Coinstar’s flexible platform makes it possible for consumers to easily purchase Bitcoin with cash,” said Jim Gaherity, Coinstar CEO, in a statement.

Don’t count on using spare quarters, dimes and pennies in this case, though. Bitcoin via Coinstar can only be purchased with paper money (as much as $ 2,500). Investors will go to one of the company’s participating machines and select the “Buy Bitcoin” option on the screen, entering their phone number.

After inserting however much they want to spend, they’ll receive a voucher with a redemption code, which they can enter on a Coinstar operated Website.

Coinstar has 20,000 machines around the world and has become the de facto place for people to get rid of their jugs of spare change. It’s not clear right now how many of those will sell Bitcoin, however.

Bitcoin could use the boost. After seeing prices crash most of last year, the cryptocurrency is currently selling for about $ 3,600, well off of its December 2017 highs of $ 19,783. Supporters are hoping for a rebound this year.

How to Save $432 a Year at the Grocery Store Without Clipping Coupons

Nancy Frost loves saving money at the grocery store. It’s not a chore for her; rather, it’s a challenge she meets with enthusiasm.

“I’ve always been interested in saving money but never really was able to make that happen,” said Frost, a library services supervisor with a large family in Cumberland, Maryland. “We have six kids between us and several grandchildren. Also, my husband and I enjoy our four Jack Russell terriers.”

With a sizeable family, including those four-legged mischief-makers, every dollar counts. So what does Frost do? She started using a cash-back app to earn money when she shops — and she saved $ 432 in one year.

An App That Pays You for Shopping

Nancy Frost uses Ibotta for her grocery purchases in Cumberland, Md., Tuesday Aug 7, 2018.

Frost uses Ibotta to earn cash back for stuff she would have bought anyway — by taking pictures of her receipts.

In the app, specific items are listed at various stores. When you buy those items, you simply select the deal in Ibotta and take a picture of your receipt, and you’ll get cash back in your Ibotta account. Once you’ve reached $ 20, you can swing that money into your bank account.

Frost uses the app when she makes grocery runs and trips to Walmart.

“I use it at home before I go to the store, almost like a grocery list,” she said. “I find the offers that the vendors have available.”

By looking at Ibotta’s offers before she sets foot outside her door, she can plan her shopping trip. She knows ahead of time which brand of yogurt or cottage cheese will save her money. She might try new things she sees on the app, but she usually sticks to items she had already planned on buying.

It Beats Clipping Coupons

“It’s probably no more time consuming than clipping coupons,” she said. “To me, the difference with Ibotta is that a manufacturer’s coupon comes off your overall order and you don’t really think about it. But Ibotta, to me, I look at that as earnings.”

Frost enjoys photography as a hobby, so it’s only natural that taking pictures of receipts now could help her prepare for a comfortable retirement. Then, she’ll be able to take pictures of whatever catches her eye.

But for now, she has no plans on stopping. In fact, she plans on ramping up her efforts and recommends that others take advantage of Ibotta and other savings tools, as well.

La Prestic Ouiston Expands With Plans for Store in Paris

Rebag Opens First Mall Store in Downtown Manhattan

Luxury handbag resale firm Rebag has opened its fifth store in the Oculus at Westfield World Trade Center mall.
The store in downtown Manhattan at 185 Greenwich Street represents the handbag firm’s first mall location. It is also its third New York City site. Two other stores were opened earlier this year on the West Coast in Los Angeles, one in Beverly Hills and the other in Melrose Place. The Madison Avenue store in midtown Manhattan opened earlier this year, as well. The first store in SoHo was opened last fall as a pop-up, then was converted to a permanent location, also earlier this year.
Rebag’s neighbors in the Westfield center mall include Dior Beauty, Breitling, mattress firm Casper and the Apple Store. The store features Rebag’s signature Rebag Bar, where consumers can check in with their handbags and get an estimate on their value. Also a feature in the store is the company’s Hermès Birkin Wall, which shows all available Birkin bags at the store.
Following the opening at Oculus, Rebag will start exploring growth and traffic at U.S. mall sites.

Hoorsenbuhs Opens First Store, Creates Eyewear

Hoorsenbuhs, the American fine jewelry house and lifestyle brand known for its bold rings, cuffs and open-link chains, has opened its first store, in Santa Monica, Calif., within a 5,000 square-foot, two-story space that also houses its atelier, headquarters and event space.
Located at 2217 Main Street across from its previous headquarters, the 1,500-square-foot retail store was designed by creative chief Robert Keith and partner and brand director Kether Parker.
“We’ve kept pretty private,” Keith said of the previous space, which was used for private appointments. “But we’re ready to invite people in to show how we’ve evolved over the last 13 years. Plus, I need a place for all the weird things I design,” he said of the furniture, fixtures and sculptures.
As guests step in, they see elements from the by-appointment-only studio and Soho gallery pop-up, including the life-size brass bank vault and artworks from friends and collaborators such as Damien Hirst and Wes Lang. New are signature elements such as black wood panels, logo-stamped brass bolts — there are 3,500 outside and 1,400 inside — and custom-built cases suspended from anchor chains, along with furniture that pays homage to the best-selling Phantom Ring.

Roland Mouret Shuts Town House Store on Madison Avenue

MOVING ON: Roland Mouret has shut his town house store at 1006 Madison Avenue as part of a wider reorganization of the business, which is streamlining and putting a greater focus on e-commerce, digital and wholesale.
Mouret opened the store, at 77th Street, in September 2016, having relocated from number 952 Madison Avenue. It spanned 1,937 square feet over the ground and mezzanine levels of the Twenties-era building.
“It’s the smallest town house on Madison — it’s unique,” the designer told WWD at the time, adding that he was proud to remain near to The Met Breuer, which focuses on the The Metropolitan Museum of Art’s 20th and 21st century collections.
The setting was similar to Mouret’s London flagship, which is located in a red brick town house on Carlos Place, across from The Connaught hotel and just off Mount Street. In London, retail is on the ground floor with design studios and offices on the upper levels. The vast Carlos Place town house remains open.
As reported, Madison Avenue has been struggling with declining rents and high vacancies since the 2008 recession. According to research by Cushman & Wakefield, Madison Avenue availability rose to 27.8 percent at the end of the second quarter of

Carroll & Co. to Close Store, Begin New Chapter

BEVERLY HILLS — This isn’t a story about a retailer that’s succumbed to a challenging business environment or digital disruptors.
Beverly Hills men’s retailer Carroll & Co. — frequented by Hollywood celebrities such as Frank Sinatra, Cary Grant, Gene Kelly, Jimmy Stewart and Jack Lemmon — is in the midst of a store-closing sale after nearly 70 years as the founder’s son looks to relocate and reinvent the business.
John Carroll, whose father Richard Carroll started the business in 1949, has his work cut out for him overseeing the store closing sale. But once that task is wrapped, he will reenter the men’s made-to-measure business — a segment of Carroll & Co. that has taken off in recent years. About 400 square feet of the store’s 8,000-square-foot footprint is dedicated to made-to-measure and so much of its business is done there, Carroll said.
“We do so much of our business out of that small space with our plethora of loyal custom clothing customers that, for me to transition our business and be able to continue to service those people who have been so loyal over the years, makes all the sense in the world,” he said. “We do more custom business than we

Cremieux to Replace SoHo Unit With Hudson Yards Store

NEW YORK — Count Cremieux as the latest upscale tenant to sign on at Hudson Yards.
The French men’s wear brand, which got its start in Saint-Tropez in 1976, will open an 800-square-foot store at The Shops and Restaurants at Hudson Yards, a key element of the neighborhood that is being built on Manhattan’s far West Side. When completed, Hudson Yards will include more than 18 million square feet of commercial and residential space, more than 100 stores, a collection of restaurants, 4,000 residences, a 750-seat public school, a 200-room Equinox hotel and 14 acres of public open space.
The Cremieux store is expected to open in mid-March and will join anchor Neiman Marcus as well as Dior, Cartier, Van Cleef & Arpels, Coach, Kiehl’s, AG Jeans by Adriano Goldschmied and Forty-Five-Ten.
At Hudson Yards, the store will be located near Cartier, Dior, Fendi and other brands with a similar aesthetic, said Stephane Cremieux, chief executive officer of Cremieux and son of founder Daniel Cremieux.
The shop will replace the 700-square-foot, two-level unit at 65 Mercer Street that closed in June. That store had been open for four years but the lease was up for renewal and the landlord would not reduce the rent, Cremieux said.

White Man Kills Two Black Shoppers At Kentucky Grocery Store

The white man accused of killing two African-Americans at a Kroger grocery store in Jeffersontown, Kentucky, was ordered to be held on $ 5 million bond at his arraignment on Thursday.

According to WAVE News, a lawyer for Gregory Bush, a public defender, asked for a bond reduction, but the judge denied that request, ruling Bush a danger to the community.

“I believe you to be a danger,” the judge stressed.

“You are to possess no firearms, to have no contact with any of the alleged victims’ families, and (have) no contact with the place of violation including any Kroger.”

Bush, 51, was charged with two counts of murder and 10 counts of wanton endangerment for the shooting that took place on Wednesday around 3:30pm, killing Maurice Stallard, 69, and Vickie Lee Jones, 67, both from Louisville.

Stallard was the father of the city’s Chief Equity Officer, Kellie Watson. Apparently, he was there shopping with his 12-year-old grandson for art supplies.

The Courier-Journal reported that the arrest citation stated that Bush “pulled a pistol from his waistband and shot [a man] in the rear of the head and again multiple times as he lay on the floor.” Bush then allegedly re-holstered his weapon, walked out of the store, drew his weapon again and allegedly shot and killed Jones in the parking lot, the newspaper noted.

The Kroger Co. issued a statement saying that company officials were “shocked and saddened by the shooting.”

“Thanks to the quick response of the local police department, the suspect was apprehended and our store is secure.”

Authorities have yet to confirm a motive behind Bush’s alleged crimes, but News reported that he has a history of making racist comments in the past, domestic violence and mental illness. Older court documents claim that Bush called his ex-wife a “n***er b*tch” and was charged with domestic abuse.

In a past Facebook post, Bush also wrote “[I’ve] worked most of my life and battled mental illness throughout my life. My paranoid-schizophrenia finally stopped me from working and not am on mental disability. I’m lucky I made it this far with all the trouble I’ve caused myself when I get off my medicine.”

It’s unknown if Bush was off his medication during the time of the shooting.

But what we do know is that a witness to the shooting claims that after taking out his gun to protect himself, Bush allegedly told him, “Don’t shoot me. I won’t shoot you. Whites don’t shoot whites,” the Chicago Tribune wrote.

This is a developing story and we will provide updates as they become available.

‘Made in France’ Brand Rue Begand Opens First Store

PARIS — One is in Troyes, a city in eastern France with a deep-rooted textile history. The other is located in the Haut Marais, a trendy shopping district in the center of Paris.
Rue Begand — the men’s fashion brand — has opened its first brick-and-mortar store on the Rue Charlot, after launching wholesale in January at L’Exception in France and United Arrows in Japan.
Doubling as the label’s headquarters, the shop sports a photo studio in its basement where the fall 2018 and spring 2019 collections were shot for the Rue Begand e-shop, set to launch in a couple of weeks.
Named after a street in Troyes that used to house a number of clothing workshops, the brand is a celebration of local savoir faire.
“Eighty percent of our clothes are made in Troyes,” said Rue Begand’s founder Samuel Granata, adding that the remaining part is manufactured in a nearby town, with a few of the more voluminous pieces being made in Tunisia.
Rue Begand works with L’Atelier d’Ariane, a historical clothing manufacturer based in Troyes run by Granata’s mother Véronique. “My family has had the atelier for over 20 years,” said the 25-year-old founder, who runs the brand with his brother Arthur. “I spent most of

Marcia Patmos Opens Brooklyn Store for M.Patmos With Focus on Community

Six years after officially launching her M.Patmos brand, Marcia Patmos has opened her first store in Brooklyn.
Located at 380 Atlantic Avenue, the lofty space offers her designs and a range of other products, including art books, records, organic beauty products and home decor. Jewelry from local designers, sneakers from Alumni, upcycled styles from the Los Angeles-based VisionQuest, cashmere blankets and throws from Sage and zero-waste pillows from Oliver Yaphe are some of the pick-up items for sales. Photographer Sarah Bird’s “Trees” exhibition is on view, too.
Patmos said of the opening: “I thought it was a good time, because people are interested in independent designers. There are two things happening. There’s the Amazon world and there’s also people, who like to go into a store to touch things, speak to a person and find special things that you don’t find on Amazon, etc.”
To design the space, Patmos used as many recycled goods as she could, “stalking” The Big Reuse in Gowanus for salvaged goods like mirrors, shelves and other finds. With large bay windows, old wood floors and tin ceilings, the designer wanted the interior to have an industrial feel. She made the clothing racks from plumbing pipes. To keep things

This is Why It’s Smarter to Buy Halloween Makeup at Ulta Than a Party Store

I’ll tell you this right now: Halloween is not my holiday of choice.

I usually spend the weeks leading up to Oct. 31 being a grump and refusing to dress up. Then, a few days before, I start feeling left out and just want to go to the party, so I piece something together.

It always ends up being expensive.

And I feel like a fool in a scrappy costume while everyone else is dressed as a clever pun with Pinterest-worthy makeup.

Not this year, my friends.

Although Halloween is on a Wednesday, I will be prepared — and I refuse to spend too much money.

A co-worker (who is a lot more makeup-savvy than I am — thanks, Kelsey) recently let me in on a secret: Buying “real” Halloween makeup at a cosmetic store like Ulta is actually a lot smarter than going to Party City for the “cheap” costume stuff.

No way, I thought. But, lo and behold, it really is a smarter decision. Here’s why.

1. “Real” Makeup Is Cheaper

This is where I was hung up. I know how much the little bit of makeup I wear costs, so the idea of buying legit makeup over the costume stuff didn’t seem like it’d be cheaper.

But you really can find cheaper Halloween makeup alternatives at Ulta — both in-store and online.

Plus, you can apply some hefty savings to your order if you know what you’re doing.

For example, you can get free gift cards to Ulta by taking surveys through Swagbucks (which will also give you $ 5 to get started).

Once you’re in, buy an Ulta gift card and shop Ulta through the platform. You’ll earn two Swagbucks (SBs) per $ 1 you spend. You can exchange SBs for gift cards.

For context, 2,500 SBs equate to a $ 25 PayPal gift card, good for all your online shopping pleasures.

However, as it turns out, many of the costume basics are a lot cheaper if you get them from somewhere like Ulta.

I compared a few items and their prices:

Fake eyelashes:

  • Sultry False Eyelashes: $ 4.99 at Party City
  • Ardell Glamour Multipack (of four sets): $ 11.99 at Ulta, totaling about $ 3 per set


  • Gold Glitter Lipstick: $ 2.99 at Party City
  • Makeup Revolution: $ 2.49 at Ulta


  • Black Shimmer Eye Liner: $ 3.99 at Party City
  • Essence Kajal Eye Pencil: $ 1.49 at Ulta (also available in white)

Self-adhesive face jewels:

  • Adult Sea Siren Mermaid Makeup Kit: $ 9.99 at Party City
  • Lottie London Mermaid Self-Adhesive Jewels: $ 5.49 at Ulta (online-only)

Setting powder:

  • Colorless Setting Powder: $ 3.99 at Party City
  • E.L.F. Prime & Stay Finishing Powder: $ 2 at Ulta (online-only)

Bonus: Here are seven other ways you can save money at Ulta.

2. “Real” Makeup Is Better Quality

One year in middle school, I decided to be a clown for Halloween… Lord knows why.

I hate clowns, and my face was covered in paint, which caused my already acne-prone skin to freak out. I think there’s one photo of the incident floating around somewhere…

When I dressed as a scarecrow a few years back, my face was not happy with the swirls of red paint on my cheeks. Also, the red paint refused to come off — even with makeup remover — so going to class on Monday was an adventure.

One of the perks of using “real” makeup is the quality. The likelihood of your skin having an adverse reaction to the product is probably lower. Plus, the real stuff is usually built to stay on all day, so it’ll be less likely to slime off during your rowdy night.

3. “Real” Makeup Stores Better (and You Can Use It Again)

I held onto that red paint palette I purchased for my scarecrow costume, because it felt like such a waste to use the tiniest bit and toss it.

Moving out a few months later, I stumbled across it. It was totally dried out.

When you purchase legitimate makeup, it’ll store better — and longer. Actually, depending on the product, it’ll probably be fine until next year.

There’s also more of a chance you’ll use eyeliner than black face paint on any other regular day.

4. “Real” Makeup Has More Options

At Party City, you’ll probably find limited options for Halloween makeup. You’ll see the white face paint, the palette of clown colors and maybe two colors of lipstick.

The nice thing about opting for makeup from a place like Ulta is you have so many options. You’re also not locked into buying the five-pack of eyeshadows, for example. You can probably find a singular one you actually need (and will use again).

Plus, did you see all those lipstick options? Black? Green? Purple? Neon yellow?!

The best part is you don’t risk running into someone who used the same pre-packaged kit as you. You’ll be unique. And, really, that’s all that matters on Halloween — because it’s awkward to run into someone dressed the same darn way.

The Great Eros Unveils Third Store for Elevated Innerwear

The Great Eros recently opened its third store, a 600-square-foot unit at 66 Greenwich Avenue in Manhattan’s West Village, which embodies its ethos of comfort and beauty.
“I wanted to create an environment for the clothing to sit in,” said designer and cofounder Christina Viviani. “It’s the intimate experience I felt was missing in retail.”
Viviani’s bras, panties, bustiers and bodysuits are manufactured in Italy at a family-owned factory operated by the third generation. The matte Italian fabric of the Sonata bralette is edged in a custom geometric lace woven by a third-generation lacemaker in Como, Italy. Hang tags for the collection are printed on paper milled in Fabriano, Italy. Talk about attention to detail.
Viviani spent 15 years working in design capacities at Donna Karan and other brands before launching the business with cofounder Emilio Ramirez. She test-drives every product. “I’m a size DD,” she volunteered. “The Great Eros is wearable sensuality in modern, timeless pieces. It’s for a woman who’s dressing for herself. The store is a very safe place for women to explore themselves.”
Fabric is one of the top priorities for Viviani. Eros’ signature Italian double-layer mesh is used for the Canova double bralette. The Forma bandeau is made from
