The apple doesn’t fall far from the tree.

Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump enjoys plugging his various products — like Trump wine, Trump water and Trump steaks, among others — during speeches and press conferences from time to time. Ivanka Trump took a page out of that playbook Thursday night when she gave herself an endorsement by wearing a $138 blush-colored sleeveless sheath dress from her own fashion line while introducing her father at the Republican National Convention in Cleveland, according to Women’s Wear Daily. While her step-mother, Melania Trump, wore a $2,190 designer dress for her RNC appearance on Tuesday, Ivanka, 34, opted for a more affordably-priced piece from The Ivanka Trump Collection for her speech. She wore a selection from her own collection the previous night as well, appearing at the convention wearing a $158 off-white dress with a $135 pair of black suede pumps.

In so doing, Ivanka backed up comments she made to Teen Vogue in 2012. “In working on my collection, I really designed only things that I personally would love to wear,” Ivanka said. “Quality for me is key.” While many agreed that her outfits for the RNC were on point, critics have not always been impressed with the quality of The Ivanka Trump Collection’s products. In April, the Consumer Product Safety Commission announced it was recalling 20,000 scarves made by The Ivanka Trump Collection. The scarves, the commission said, had been produced in China and did not meet U.S. federal flammability standards for clothing. Once again, looks like she took a page out of her father’s playbook when it comes to manufacturing.
