Last night the Australian public shunned Married At First Sight and switched over with anticipation to everyone’s favourite yearly viewing: The federal budget.
But there was at least one person who considered the federal budget 2019 an occasion worth getting excited over (and dressed up for).
Behold: Julie Bishop.
The retiring former foreign minister chose a very sparkly, very blue dress and honestly we cannot look away.
The $1299 Rachel Gilbert dress is described on the designer's website was being "perfect for a special occasion" and HECK YES the last time she needs to be around for a budget qualifies.
Bishop announced her retirement from federal parliament in February and she's doing exactly what all of us want to do when we resign from a job: Rock up to the office in an outfit that is probably not 100% necessary or appropriate but uh, what are they going to do? Fire you? Ha. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
Celebrating a budget surplus!???? https://t.co/JShkRwwriR
