Had she misunderstood a simple instructions?
"Apply two coats" on a tin of paint, and she assumed that was an instruction as to the dress of the painter?

How humiliating--another easy puzzle. Alora wore 2 coats while she was painting her living room because she misunderstood the instruction, "Put on 2 coats." Well, at least I get to post a new puzzle.

Who is this Alora? Sounds like an urban legend -- I would be very surprised if your source were accurate!

I believe it's an old joke--the most recent incarnation was probably a "blonde joke".
