If the dog is vomiting, you should withhold food for 12 hours. You want the stomach to rest. Since you definitely don't want dehydration, give her some ice cubes to lick or a few tablespoons of water every 1/2 hour.
If no more vomiting after 12 hours give her fresh clean water but don't let her guzzle down a full bowl in one sitting. Offer bland food (boiled chicken w/rice or boiled chop meat w/rice. The majority being rice) but start out with a small amount so you don't overload her stomach. If she continues to not vomit, slowly give her more of the bland food mixture.
You want to be sure she doesn't get dehydrated. Check her gums gums are a good indicator of early dehydration. Normal gums are moist and shiny whereas dehydration will cause the gums to be dry or tacky feeling because they produce less saliva.
If it keeps up I'd get to the vet.
