Since President Rodrigo Duterte didn't want this year's State of the Nation Address (SONA) to be lavish, people were told to come in business attire.
Ormoc Rep. Lucy Torres-Gomez took the dress code even further with the help of her husband, actor and Ormoc City's mayor Richard Gomez, who was clueless.
In her Instagram post on Tuesday, July 26 (see below), the congresswoman revealed that her top came from an old barong Tagalog that belonged to her husband, and she took it to designer Randy Ortiz to make some alterations.
In the caption, she wrote: "One of Richard's @randy_e_ortizbarongs, reworked into a Filipiniana top for yesterday's SONA (Randy simply downsized and added a high lace collar). Wore this tucked into a slim black skirt. Thank you, Honey! You did not even know I raided your barong closet last week."
