I bit my tongue (so that I could later complain here), because my momma taught me if I didn't have anything nice to say (to say it behind their backs) to say nothing at all. Yet, all I found myself wanting to say was this is formal you moron, show some decorum!!
Military balls have long standing tradition of being formal events. We don't drop upwards of $400 on a uniform for my husband so that I can wear this:

Here's what I think: NO! Get some class people. This isn't a trashy club or your boudoir for christ's sake. This is a formal function with people your husband works with, PROFESSIONALLY. Show so class. I'm not saying you have to look like your granny. But you need to know better. Honor the tradition that comes before you. Act right and get some class. Grrrr!
Here are some of my favorite selections:
