N.J. Couple Accused of Spending Homeless Man’s GoFundMe Donations Could Be Indicted, Lawyer Says

An attorney for a New Jersey couple accused of spending thousands of a homeless man’s GoFundMe donations could be indicted, according to their lawyer, who has has filed a motion saying he and his firm may no longer be able to continue representation, according to court documents obtained by PEOPLE.

What began as a feel-good story has turned into a criminal investigation after Johnny Bobbitt, a 35-year-old homeless veteran living in Philadelphia, accused Kate McClure, 28, and her 39-year-old boyfriend Mark D’Amico of spending the more than $ 400,000 they raised for him on GoFundMe on lavish vacations and a new BMW.

Now, the couple’s lawyer has told a Burlington County judge that he and his law firm could possibly step down from representing the pair, holding that either McClure, D’Amico, or both will likely be indicted in the headline-making case.

“Since it is expected that one or both of the Defendants will likely be indicted, my firm and I will no longer be able to continue our representation of them in this matter,” the couple’s attorney, Ernest Badway, wrote in a motion filed Friday in Burlington County Superior Court. “(However, we are not seeking that relief at this time, we merely wanted to make the Court aware of the potential future development.)”

Badway declined to comment on the motion, but indicates to PEOPLE that he is currently representing McClure and D’Amico.

He noted in the motion that D’Amico and McClure are “unable to defend themselves or respond in any meaningful way” to requests to know where the remaining funds went because their financial and business records have been seized by prosecutors.

The motion came to light in a deposition on Monday, but was dated Thursday, according to CBS News — the same day the Florence Police Department raided McClure and D’Amico’s home, and seized their BMW in what Burlington County Prosecutor Scott A. Coffina declared a “criminal investigation.”

RELATED STORY: GoFundMe Donors Speak Out as Couple Is Accused of Spending Homeless Man’s Money: ‘Despicable’

Officials with the prosecutors office did not immediately respond to a request for comment from PEOPLE. However, no charges have been filed against the couple, according to CBS.

Burlington County Superior Court Judge Paula Dow on Monday granted Badway’s request to stay the civil suit, halting legal proceedings through Dec. 7 due to the criminal investigation.

Bobbitt, originally from Raleigh, North Carolina, first met McClure last October, when her car ran out of gas on Interstate 95 in Philadelphia. Bobbitt famously spent his last $ 20 to buy gas for McClure. Moved by his kindness, she and D’Amico set up a GoFundMe page to help Bobbitt get back on his feet. More than 14,000 donated a total of $ 402,706 to the man.

The motion follows a string of twists in the case. Just days before police searched McClure and D’Amico’s home, an attorney for the couple told Dow that the remainder of Bobbitt’s massive sum is gone.

“It is safe to say that we were shocked and concerned when their lawyer told us Tuesday that there was no money left,” Bobbitt’s attorney, Jacqueline Promislo, previously told PEOPLE. “We are now doing some discovery on an emergency basis to try to figure out where the money went but at this time we have no further information.”

RELATED STORY: Homeless Vet Will Get $ 400K in GoFundMe Donations Despite Couple’s Alleged Fraud, Lawyer Says

The couple had been ordered to hand the money over to Bobbitt’s attorneys, but never did. In a complaint filed by his attorney and obtained by PEOPLE, Bobbitt accused the couple of fraud and conspiracy, alleging that the couple spent most of the funds on vacations to Las Vegas, Florida, and California, along with a helicopter ride over the Grand Canyon and a new BMW for McClure.

McClure and D’Amico have denied the allegations and spoke about the incident last week on Megyn Kelly Today, claiming that they went above and beyond to track down the man’s birth certificate and get him identification.

“He was our family. He is our family. I still think, to this day, that he is our family,” McClure told Kelly. McClure spoke through tears as she claimed the couple’s been receiving death threats.

GoFundMe officials are working with authorities in the matter, and have set up an account with $ 20,000 with Bobbitt’s lawyers, according to Good Morning America. Officials with the fundraising site announced that Bobbitt will receive a portion of the donations as a result of their GoFundMe Guarantee program, a policy that ensures recipients receive their money, or those who have donated receive refunds in the event of “campaign misuse.”

Father’s Day Spending Expected to Hit $15.3 Billion This Year

Dads can expect a little less to be spent on them for Father’s Day this year.
According to a study by the National Retail Federation and Prosper Insights & Analytics, spending on the holiday is projected to reach $ 15.3 billion this year, down just slightly from the $ 15.5 billion spent last year.
This translates into an average of $ 133 a person for the 77 percent of Americas who plan on celebrating the holiday on June 17. Individuals between 25 and 34 years of age are expected to spend the most, an average of $ 188.
“We are pleased to see consumer confidence continue to rise, leading to another near-record holiday spend on Father’s Day,” said NRF president and chief executive officer Matthew Shay. “Leading into the second half of the year, Americans are looking forward to treating their dads, and retailers will be prepared to offer a variety of gift options that will create new memories on this special day.”
According to the survey, consumers plan to spend $ 2.2 billion on apparel, which is expected to be purchased by 43 percent of shoppers; $ 2.1 billion on gift cards (42 percent), and $ 1.8 billion on consumer electronics (20 percent). In addition, $ 878 million will be spent on home

Shannon Beador Spending ‘Low-Key’ Mother’s Day with Daughters Amid Contentious Divorce

Shannon Beador is keeping things causal this Mother’s Day.

The 54-year-old Real Housewives of Orange County star tells PEOPLE she’s spending the big day with her daughters, Sophie, 16, and twins Stella and Adeline, 13.

“This year, I’ll be a doing a low-key Mother’s day at home with my three daughters,” the reality star says. “Anytime I get to have time with my girls is quality time.”

It’s been a tough few months for Beador, who split from David Beador in September after 17 years of marriage.

The two have had a contentious divorce so far, with a source telling PEOPLE that David “spewed profanities” at Shannon back in March after she was awarded joint legal and physical custody of their three daughters as well as $ 22,500 per month for temporary non-taxable child and spousal support in their temporary settlement.

Weeks later, body-shaming texts David allegedly sent Shannon were exposed. He was accused of telling her, “You f—ing disgust me. F— you. What do you have to do? Eat? Because you can’t get off your fat ass.”

David had no comment on his alleged courtroom behavior and texts, but Shannon told PEOPLE in a statement that she’s focused on moving forward.

“As David and I continue our divorce proceedings, I’m doing everything I can to move things efficiently along so that our three children are not subjected to unnecessary stress during an already difficult time,” she said. “I want to be as fair as possible. I remain focused on a clean resolution and have no interest in engaging in a war of words.”

Last month, Shannon debuted a new line of cooked, ready-to-eat meals on QVC called Real for Real Cuisine — a venture she credited in part to her split. “As a single mom, a lot of my friends say they go through this every night. We say, ‘Oh, if there was just an easy, healthy option for us to eat for dinner tonight,’ ” she told PEOPLE.

It’s expected to be a record for spending on Dad this year.
According to the National Retail Federation’s annual survey conducted by Prosper Insight & Analytics, spending is expected to hit $ 15.5 billion this year, the highest figure in the 15-year history of the survey. Last year, spending was $ 14.2 billion.
According to the survey, shoppers are expected to spend an average of $ 134.75 this year, up from last year’s $ 125.92.

How I Somehow Saved Money When I Started Spending More On Clothes

2016-04-29-1461948225-4007714-image.png
Photos by Leslie Kirchhoff

I have worked as a fashion and celebrity stylist for over a decade, which is a fancy way to say that I find clothes for people to wear. It involves so much more than that, though — tons of traveling, attending shows and presentations for weeks on end, poring over spreadsheets, hauling enormous trunks, missing flights, losing sleep, forgetting meals, and washing other people’s clothing (and sometimes underwear). Between the stories of triumph and tragedy, I shop — and that’s what most people ask me about.

But the truth is, for quite a while, I hadn’t perfected my own shopping habits. My closet had always contained a measured mix of designer and fast-fashion pieces; I would regularly feel guilty after my expensive designer purchases, and would compensate by purchasing high street brands to get a shopping fix without feeling the stress on my wallet at the register. I was sure this high-low strategy was the way to guarantee maximum style within a budget, but it was actually just draining my funds.

This all began to change three years ago, when I was introduced to the designer of Amour Vert, Linda Balti, whose brand produces sustainable basics. Balti is a stylish French woman with an enviable je ne sais quoi, and she’s been committed to shopping mindfully since starting her brand, buying only from companies with ethical practices. I was impressed by her commitment to ethical shopping — but not so much to adopt it for my own. I loved this concept the way I love the idea of a 5 a.m. workout: I wanted to be there, I just didn’t want to have to get there.

I thought that to shop ethically meant that I would have to compromise my personal style in the process. As someone who wasn’t able to afford a closet full of Stella McCartney vegan separates, how could I make this work?

2016-04-29-1461948330-1642759-image2.png

I decided to challenge myself to shop ethically for one year. What began as a self-imposed styling test has now become a new way of life: It’s been passion-igniting, and has seeped into other areas of my life. I’ve also saved at least a few thousand dollars, and my wardrobe has never looked better.

I approached my ethical styling challenge like I would a new client. Before making any purchases, I had to assess the current state of my wardrobe. I picked through my closet, asking myself: Was I happy with my wardrobe as a whole? Was it cohesive? Did it represent my aesthetic and lifestyle? Would my clothing stand the test of time? Ruefully, I admitted the answer to many of these questions was “no.” My wardrobe did not represent a chic, sophisticated stylist from New York with a strong social conscience. Instead, I saw a woman with no sense of color or her own identity who also maybe owns a time machine.

2016-04-29-1461948383-3495195-image3.png

With brutal honesty I divided my clothing into three categories:

1. The home-run pile: the most trusted items I’ve worn a ton and still love.

2. The treat yo’self pile: special-occasion pieces I’ll need later on.

3. The nope pile: anything I have never worn or wish I hadn’t.

By examining my stuff using these categories, I could identify the styles that were the most successful for me and those that were not — like my glittery Alexander Wang pants from four years ago that look amazing on the hanger but terrible on my butt. As well as the most popular styles, I wanted to know which pieces gave me the most value for my money. I determined the price-per-wear of each item by dividing its cost by how many times I’ve worn it: The more frequently something is worn, the cheaper its price-per-wear would be.

The first thing I recognized was that my most trusted pieces were overwhelmingly the simplest and highest in quality. They were well designed with exceptional fit, which meant they were worn quite often. Last summer, for example, I bought a pair of navy Céline culottes. They cost $ 1,200 and I felt extremely guilty when I bought them; in fact, I considered returning them several times. But, I couldn’t bear to give them up. Using the price-per-wear model, I counted the 20 times that I had already worn them, giving them a price-per-wear result of $ 60. Not to mention the huge number of compliments I receive every time I wore them. As the weather warms, and they get added back into my rotation (though I even managed to style them for a few winter looks), this number will continue to lower. But my love for the pants only grows.

2016-04-29-1461948412-4371391-image4.png

Comparatively, sitting in my trash pile, waiting to be donated to charity, were five skirts and two pairs of pants (both from Zara), with a total value of $ 890. Most of these items were bought in either a moment of panic, when I was seeking a fashion fix, or out of boredom. Of this $ 890, I’ve worn two of the pieces once, and regretted it both times. I couldn’t even put a price tag on the cheap items in my nope pile that completely changed shape after the first wash and became un-wearable. The most shocking part of this exercise was I had spent almost as much money on my collection of cheap clothing as I had on my favorites. For the price of my inexpensive fashion fixes, I could have had an entire second selection of gorgeous, high-quality pieces.

What I learned was that I was so seduced by the allure of a cheap runway knock-off and so addicted to the idea that I needed a constant supply of new clothing, that I was throwing money away. While my favorites pile was smaller than I wanted my wardrobe to be, it contained many fantastic styling options. Had I always shopped slowly and mindfully, I could have doubled this selection by now and had an enviable collection of stylish designer clothing with endless outfit choices.

This is not to say that the only way to shop is to buy new designer clothing — that’s far from the truth. I have a pair of vintage Yves Saint Laurent boots that I picked up for $ 90 and a Gap denim dress I bought on eBay for $ 20. Both have been worn to death season after season. In fact, I’ve noticed that ever since I’ve started buying clothes that I can wear for a majority of the year, I’m buying more things off-season and have been able to take advantage of deep designer sales.

Shopping ethically taught me that when I spent big and shopped smarter, I saved more. When I first changed my habits, I was so worried about buying anything that might be deemed unethical that I bought only vintage. But it was too dramatic a style change for me and incredibly time consuming. Reformation has proved to be the ideal segue: Its clothes are reasonably priced, cute, and easy to wear. I bought a summer dress there that I’ve worn a ton, and a few separates to pair with things I already owned. Summer proved to be the perfect time to cut down on pointless spending and save for the big ticket items of winter: A few well-chosen dresses in great colors and separates can carry you through most of the warm weather months.

2016-04-29-1461948557-4568525-image6.png

Once fall arrived, I had more confidence in my ability to select timeless pieces and took the time to find the perfect sweater (Zady), replace my Zara bottoms (Everlane), find beautiful accessories (Cuyana), and cheaply update my jeans by tailoring three pairs I already owned. I saved enough by opting out of frequent fast-fashion shopping trips over the warmer months to buy a beautiful Stella McCartney coat and sweater, which I wear as often as possible. I feel no guilt splurging on a special pair of shoes once or twice a season to keep my look fresh, especially from Edun or Maiyet. I love the selection in my closet, and have saved somewhere in the vicinity of $ 5,000 on clothing compared to my pre-ethical spending in the same time frame. This year, I expect the amount I spend to drop even more.

Even though it was only a year and a half ago that I began to adopt a different way of approaching shopping, I also learned to take into consideration the things that I truly value and want to do well. I value beautiful clothing, looking after our environment, and investing in products from companies that are transparent about their business and production. Naturally, I pivoted to sustainable fashion. I still dress celebrities and indulge in styling beautiful editorials, but I now invest a good portion my time, money, and talents into fashion brands with moral missions that prioritize quality. It’s a challenge at times to encourage others to see the sexy side of shopping sustainably, but shopping slowly and without excess is a perfect start. And this commitment to design and to caring for the environment is infectious. My post-shopping guilt is gone and, more importantly, so is my desperate need for a constant barrage of new things. I’m much more satisfied with enjoying the items I have.

As a stylist, I often hear to question: “What should I buy this season?” To which my response is usually: “Whatever suited you best last season.” I’ve watched fashion trends come and go, and the most stylish women are always above them. Investing time into finding pieces that fit well and are the most flattering pays off for years to come. Spending big on the best quality pieces that your budget will allow is even better. When you are in the habit of buying pieces that push the limit of what you are comfortable spending, you usually spend much more time deliberating over whether you truly need it. It’s amazing when you take the time to assess the value of something in your life how often you’ll decide you actually don’t. And really, that just means more money in the bank for the item you find that you truly fall in love with.

How to Maximize Your Swim Wardrobe Without Spending a Dime

Have you looked through your swimsuits from last year and realized that you’re missing some tops and bottoms of your bikinis? Hey, it happens. That’s when mixing tops and bottoms from different suits comes in, but as you know from missing prints in other genres, it takes some skill.

We spoke to Gabby Sabharwal, designer of swimwear brand Giejo, who knows a thing or two about print mixing when it comes to swimwear. Her line was born out of a fruitless search for a swimsuit that she says “fit my personal style of mixing and matching print, textures, and silhouettes.” To help in the styling process, she shared with us her tips on swimwear print mixing, just in time for summer:

print-urban

  1. Opposites Attract: “I love putting together unexpected combinations, like stripes and animal prints, or contrasting colors of the same print,” Sabharwal says.
  2. Step Outside of Your Comfort Zone: :The beach is the one place where you can have fun!” she says. “Try a new color or vibrant prints—after all, all colors go with a healthy glow.”
  3. It’s All About Balance: “If you’re wearing a loud print, pair it with something more traditional, like stripes,” she adds. “For a large print, try mixing it with a micro print. The same applies for silhouettes: If you are wearing a high-waisted bottom, pair it with a more feminine top.
