Gisele Fetterman wears an occasion dress at John Fetterman’s swearing-in ceremony with Kamala Harris

Tuesday was a little, uh, chaotic for House Republicans on Capitol Hill. They were supposed to swear in their new legislators. But they couldn’t do it, because they couldn’t even elect a speaker.

Things went a little better across the aisle, where Kamala Harris was sworn in to, among others, new Pennsylvania Senator John Fetterman. Standing next to John was his wife Gisele, who has a penchant for wearing old-fashioned clothes, like anyone who follows his Instagram account knows.

In this case, Gisele went with a Temperley London dress, which she bought for $69 at online consignment store The Real Real. The handbag she was carrying was from the Buffalo Exchange resale store in Center City. She found it hanging from the rack bearing the initials of her maiden name, Gisele Barreto.

As for the rest of the family, John traded his campaign duds for a suit. But the couple’s oldest child wore khaki shorts for their photo shoot with the Vice President of the United States:
