I had to Google it myself. You silly people, assuming "fancy" meant adorned, baroque, beautifying, chichi, complicated, cushy, custom, decorated, decorative, deluxe, elaborate, elegant, embellished, fanciful, florid, frilly, froufrou, garnished, gaudy, gingerbread, intricate, lavish, ornate, ostentatious, resplendent, rich, rococo, showy, special, spiffy, or sumptuous. You should clearly have assumed it meant "costume" instead.

I thought a Black and White "Affair" was a formal party, tuxs fancy dresses etc.... I guess "theme" just means everyone should dress in those two colors. Am I right????

I know the UK/Australia calls it fancy dress, but I have never in my many years in the United States heard ANYONE refer to a costume party as "silly dress".
