Today, I had to walk through an extremely crowded pub wearing a dorky prisoner outfit to get to a dress-up party at the back. When we got there, I soon realised it wasn't fancy dress, but just black-and-white themed. FML

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????

Where the FML takes place, "fancy dress" means the same as silly dress in the U.S., like an orange jumpsuit at a black and white dress party.

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".
