A cocktail party is not a formal event.  The dress is not meant to be formal.  It is to be worn for semi formal nights out.  Cocktail parties, dinner, house parties, etc.  I guess a lot of you don't get out much for an adult night.  My husband and I go out weekly to new restaurants or to meet friends for cocktails at lounges/clubs.  We live in the South Beach area and these are the types of dresses that are worn.  It would not be considered short or slutty like so many of you seem to think.  So while all of you are bashing me know that when your out on the town (if you ever are) your husbands are looking at me or someone just like me. 

cocktail party

noun
1.
a social gathering, often held during the cocktail hour, at which cocktails and other alcoholic beverages, hors d'oeuvres, and canap├ęs are served.

I think it is cute if you are someone that can pull that look off.

I love the back. Very cute. A little on the short side but will probably be longer on someone who is not as tall as that model.

 I wouldn't have bought it if I didn't think I could.

 $400 is pretty average for a cocktail dress.  I take it you don't like it.
