This reminds me of a scene from a movie.

Specifically, the scene — you know the one — where the heroine shows up in a nice dress, and her archrival is determined not to let her win the day, so said rival deliberately rips and ruins the outfit, but AHA, our heroine is secretly a genius and she uses a nearby table linen to preserve her modesty and everyone at the party buzzes about her avant garde fashion sense. Except in this case, the nice dress is actually a bronze bridesmaid confection that’s been worn on a deserted island for two weeks, and the table linen is actually from the stockroom of Ralph’s Rodeo Barn and Wedding Hall. Not nearly as satisfying a movie unless it’s on Lifetime, and it stars Jennifer Love Hewitt, and there is Kind Bronco-Bucking.
