On Wednesday, Ms Pelosi appeared at the House impeachment vote wearing a black dress with three-quarter sleeves and a blue and black floral mask. She paired the outfit with a gold necklace.
The sleek black business frock, which some likened to funeral garb, immediately caught the eye of Twitter denizens who realized the look matched Pelosi’s December 2019 impeachment outfit.
Not only did the dress match, Pelosi opted for the same gold necklace she paired the look with in 2019. It’s not clear if the shoes also matched.
As confirmed by her office in a statement to People, Ms Pelosi first wore the suit dress and necklace on 18 December 2019, when the House passed two articles of impeachment against the president for abuse of power and obstruction of justice.
The speaker’s brooch, which sent a message of its own, was in the image of the Mace of the United States House of Representatives, a totem of the body’s legislative authority. Ms Pelosi also wore the brooch during the president’s 2019 State of the Union address. #news
