Idaho's first lady wore the same dress twice - to the gala at Saint Al's Festival of Trees in November and then again Sunday to the White House for a dinner with the nation's governors, the Obamas' first formal soiree (AP photo above). This, according to the Idaho Statesman. Lori Otter bought the dress - a floor-length black Jovani gown - on sale at the local boutique Karen Louise in Downtown Boise, the governor's office said. The gown retails for about $700, but Otter got it for about $500.
Question: Did Idaho's First Lady Lori Otter commit a fashion faux pas by wearing the same dress twice to fashionable events? Or was she being frugal?
