With the help of a fellow bridesmaid we are throwing her the bridal shower of the decade. Sparing you all the amazing details, the theme of the event is "50's Housewife," and we're asking guests to dress the part. I've been a little swamped in my duties to actually look for anything! I have my pearls and pumps ready - I just need a great dress that screams our theme. Her colors are pink and orange and i'd really like stick to her colors. My husband would like me to add that I should spend less than $100 (but I'm not a 50's housewife in real life!) ;) -Amanda"
