What vintage looking dresses and hats would you recommend for me that won't break my budget! Ya know, so I'll still have money left over to bet on the horses!"
Hello and early happy b-day! I know you love the 1950s, but I hope you don't mind if a few of these are maybe a little 1940s and maybe a little 1960s. Personally, I'm voting for the Monique dress, but I hope one of these (plus a hat!) fits your bill.

2 - Forever 21 Grosgrain Ribbon Cloche ($11)
3 - Steffy's Pros and Cons Dress ($73)

Mitchy here: I'd be happy to never put on another pair of pants. What this means for you is that I love all kinds of dress shopping - especially cute patterned dresses and party dresses. I also love colorful apparel and jewelry as well as vintage-styled home decor. Other things I don't usually put on resumes: expert cat wrangler, road tripper, and connoisseur of bad movies.
