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 revealed that the top that she wore was an old barong Tagalog that belonged to her husband, actor and Ormoc City Mayor Richard Gomez.
In her Instagram post on Tuesday, July 26, the congresswoman revealed that she had taken her husband's old barong and asked designer Randy Ortiz to make some alterations.
In the caption, she wrote: "One of Richard's @randy_e_ortiz barongs, 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."
