AOC’s appearance on “The View” got tongues wagging, not because of her words, but due to her outfit choice. She was wearing a luxe dress.
Conservative Erica Nurnberg tweeted: “Don’t you love it when an avowed SOCIALIST wears $580 dresses from Rickie Freeman? I mean, who doesn’t need a sequin leopard dress to be an effective Congresswoman?”
Saks Fifth Avenue, on its online store, describes the dress: “This all sequin design showcases an on-trend leopard print throughout and a gathered detail at the waist.”
While she may have coughed up $580 for the long-sleeved dress, the sales rack was offering the same ensemble for $232.
After The Post ran a story about her dress, AOC tweeted: “Yep! I rent, borrow, and thrift my clothes. (It’s also environmentally sustainable!) The Post is just mad that you can look good fighting for working families. Sequins are a great accessory to universal healthcare, don’t you agree?”
AOC was hailed for spending like a socialist, compared to Hillary Clinton, who found herself in deep trouble after she delivered a speech about income inequality while wearing a $12,000 Armani tweed jacket.
