Another Thrift Shop Haul

Yet again another thrift shop haul. I was surprised to find so many things, other stores where ransacked due to the holidays.

I did fail to show one key piece and that is the cape I found and tweeted about. But I have full intentions of doing an OOTD or Outfit of the Day video for that one. 

I think I spent about $60 at all three shops. So it goes to show, if you look you never know what you might find. 

Until Next time my friends,

I am reviewing the Geoffrey Rush movies as I bought them. Had I thought ahead I should have reviewed in the order that he performed? I only intended to buy some of his work, now I have this craving to have them ALL.

The Banger Sisters, I really like this movie its heart warming and sweet. I love Goldie Hawn & Susan Sarandon in this movie they are both excellent. Can I just say that Goldie Hawn is so hot in this movie!
We meet the beloved Geoffrey Rush as Harry Plumber as he exits a bus headed to Phoenix {if only he where really in AZ} complaining about flies doing it on the back of his hand. He comes off as eccentric and uptight. 

Harry Plumber;
“Disgusting! And there’s no excuse for it! Landed on the back of my hand and copulated. Two flies! On the back of my hand!”

“First one fly lands, then the second fly goes ZZzzzzzzzz. I started freaking, I mean they had sex on my skin”


Mr. Rush must have smashed his finger somewhere…

One bullet meant for one man. Anyone else see the similarity to another character Mr. Rush plays?

His face after Goldie makes the statement of “I don’t wear underwear” is hilarious. That neck pillow cracks me up. It is the perfect prop for his character.

“Adios Killer”


I love the noise or squeak that Mr. Rush makes when Goldie grabs him by his the robe. He has no idea how his little exhales or gasps for breaths have on the audience.

Backing up into the wardrobe like a cornered cat is one of my favorite things he does.


Mr. Rush;
“Where will you sleep?
“In your environment!”

One of very favorite lines is when Goldie is taking care of Susan’s daughter and she is sick. Goldie says, “Harry, you may never shit again!” 


After that you get to see Mr. Rush start to soften up a bit, and fall for Goldie’s character.

Did anyone notice the huge bead of sweat that rolls in Goldie’s eye when she’s in the bath tub? She is so in the zone, she barely blinks.

Can I have the job where you get to throw bubbles at Mr. Rush’s face?! That must have been FUN.


 No Peeking!

I absolutely love the scene where Mr. Rush is fussing with the ironing board and he drops it. Absolutely hilarious!

The bubbles still in his hair when he answers the door. Loving his miss buttoned shirt, nice touch.

The one love scene in the movie is between Mr. Rush and Goldie. Its brief and ends too soon if you ask me. 

I concentrate on the look in Mr. Rush’s eyes. But his neck area distracts me. Watch closely, am I seeing his Pulse? His heart beat on that major vein…



Mr. Rush to Goldie
“ I think you are my muse”
Guess what Mr. Rush - you are a muse to a lot of people.


Nice dance moves! 
Seriously I'm finding myself jealous of a phone here... .. .


Can I just say the snakeskin pants where not a good choice for Susan’s character.


Sleepy Mr. Rush

Last scene, where Mr. Rush makes the remark “he’s in here!” referring to his father, he is so intense. 

I imagine this and the following scene may have been difficult for him… .. .


That’s my review for The Banger Sisters.
Next up is Lantana!

See you next time,

Outfit Of The Day - Cape Coat & Mens Dress Shirt

Cape Coat, Found this gem at Forever 21 for about $32 ladies! Better get it while its hot! Its by Yoki one of those designers collaboration that Forever 21 is doing a lot of here lately. I did not have a navy blue jacket & this one has a touch a drama to it, which I like.

Shirt, blue button down borrowed form the boys. I think their is nothing sexier then wearing your mans shirt.

Leggings are from Forever 21 last year. just basic black you can find anywhere. I find I wear a lot of leggings in the winter! 

Boots are from Target and I have had these for about 2-3 years now. They are running strong still. I really like the low wedge heel. They kind of has that vintage or old school feel to them.

Watch is from Target last year. 
 Rings, snake one is from America Eagle Outfitters. Silver stud one if from forever 21 recently.
 Necklace is from Target, last year.
Black stud belt & black bag are both Thrifted.

Location details, filmed at the park yet again. this time it was much warmer then the last time I filmed. I figured that Sunday morning there would be minimal people. I was right, but then this happened. There is a bike path behind me, an older gentleman rode his bike off of the path and asked if I would like him to take pictures for me. I said no thanks, only because I could visualize him grabbing my $600 camera and taking off! You know people will do that! Can you see me chasing after an old man on a bike because I WOULD!
Generally I avoid people with cameras and camcorders and for that matter I am not the type of person to walk over to someone and bug them. 

Also I will take the time to vent here a bit. 
I would like to throw the Bullshit Flag down on all of the girls who are uploading videos with ext-ream professional help. Their videos are borderline commercials, I know you know who I am talking about here. You can tell the difference when someone has professional help filming. Also do you really think that THAT girl edited her own videos?  

Just FYI I film, edit and upload my own videos. Its just me, my camera, laptop & soft wear posting way.

Until next time my friends,

Outfit of the Day - Modern Pirate

Blouse: Bought at Kohls here recently, I usually don't have much luck with that store but when I saw this top I was like I have to have that. Its a modern pirate shirt. We all know I love my pirates. It was on sale for $21.

Pants /Capri's: Found at a local store called Family Dollar. Its kind of a general dollar store. These where on clearance for $5 and I have them for about five years. I lovingly refer to the as my Alex Row pants, Google Alex to see what hes wearing and you will know what i am talking about!

Shoes: Found at Forever 21 here recently for a whopping $12! They where too cool to pass up!

Jewelry: Fossil watch and a smattering of bracelets found at local boutiques and swap meets.

Clutch: H&M a couple months ago. Picked it up because it seemed like a good neutral to add to just about any outfit.

Until next time my friends,

Outfit Of The Day - Fur & Wool Coat Emerald Green Dress

Jacket: Forever 21 for about $40 if I remember correctly. I bought this about a month ago on a self-soothing shopping spree. November was not exactly a kind month to Mrs. Fox. It had been sitting in my closet begging to be worn and today was the day.

Dress: Old Navy for about $15 bought last year. Using old stuff in new ways is a good way to make older items in your wardrobe feel fresh.


Tights & Shoes: Tights are they extreme opaque ones that you can barely see through, bought at Wal-Mart. Shoes are from Nine West purchased at Ross.

Purse: DIY placemat to a clutch purse, here is a link to a video on how to make it. DIY Clutch / Purse Video

Stud Belt: Wal-Mart last year.
 Gloves: Your basic knit gloves – who knows where I got them!

Location Details: Obviously near a Lettuce field that is about to be harvested. Initially I had another spot picked out but a street sweeper wetting down the field roads ran me off.

I thought that this dirt road would have little to no traffic on it. Boy was I wrong, about five trucks came down it while I was shooting = awkward. I was waiting for a farmer to run me off but it never happened.


Well I leave you with that – until next time my friends.
