She was invited to Luciana's birthday party where there was to be a magician with a monkey.

In the end, instead of being given a small trinket like all the other party guests, Senora Ines paid Rosaura, an action which left Rosaura feeling hurt and cold. Rosaura plays with the other kids in the party.
Senora Ines asks Rosaura to help pass out food to the guests. Rosaura also assists the magician with the monkey oblivious to the fact that she was not seen as a guest. Falling Action The Stolen Party's theme is that social class is what defines whether someone is accepted as equal or not.
Social class is not that easy to overcome. Since everyone is forced to define the stereotypes of society. In this case it is the difference between rich and poor. The Dress Visual Interpretation of the dress
The dress represents innocence which represents Rosaura’s naivety, An example of her class and separates her from the others, rather than joining them.

However, she does not see the invisible barrier of social class between her and everyone else at Luciana's party.
