Cleanin' UpFashion Trends & Styles - Polyvore

Cleanin' Up by acelovesvintage featuring Wet Seal tops

This is basically what I wore/am wearing today. The first is for work the second is for cleaning up the new anitques I scored when I get home. My loving mother got me a gorgeous mahogany dresser that I've been lusting after. Only $30 at a local auction. It's curvy and has feet and it terribly dirty. But it will be amazing. I also picked up a new to me kitchen table yesterday. In what my mother and I have come to call the "divorce" between B and I he got our beloved 1950's yellow formica table. I got the kitten and the apartment, so I can't complain. But lord I loved that happy yellow table. Since I moved I've been searching everywhere for one and last night I hit pay dirt. I had to drive an hour and a half but she only cost me $75(way under the 300 I'd seen for some others) and she's gorgeous, I've named her Doris Day. She needs a whole lot of cleaning but I think she'll look lovely, I can't wait to have a glass of lemonade on her. Pictures as soon as she's all spiffed up!

What I'm Listening to:

In the Sun- She & Him

P.S. antiques are a great way to go green!!


  1. Ooo I can't wait to see them, Ace! A dresser for $30?! What a steal! Cath and I thrifted an old kitchen table (from the 40s I think) that I love, but it's in storage at the moment.
    I hope you are having a great week!

  2. Thanks for the comment. Yeh my mom made out like a fiend at the auction. It's a triple serpentine dresser, it's gorgeous but needs a lot of cleaning. The table is too cute I'm halfway through cleaning her. I looked at some 40's ones as well but I had my heart set on a yellow one. Both the table and dresser are living on my front porch right now and the entire contents of my apartment is stacked on top of each other in the lake house. It is high time I had a job and an apartment!
