What to wear to pray...

This looks like it could have been taken in Galeries Lafayette on boulevard Haussmann...

Are we praying? Maybe we should.
Notice I say 'we'. Women don't have to wear hats in church anymore but of course we can pray sans church. MB

Do I see prayer beads?

Trillian said...

A touch of fashion in Ocala...nice shot!

Cezar and Léia said...

I think you'd rather be praying that it's not as expensive as it looks... :)
God bless you!

A strange title for a strange image...

I wish I looked better in hats. It would make winter in Canada more fun. LOL

I'll have to take the one on the left. The other two don't stand a chance of staying put over my hair.

Virginia said...

That title took me a minute! Hilarious. I'll take the pearls on the right s'il vous plait.

Nice and beautiful Shot !! Simply Great

Jacob said...

@ Trillian - Thank you! And quite expensive "fashion," too!

Small City Scenes said...

Head covering not necessary--so I've been told---I haven't been inside one (church not hat) for quite a while so I am only going on what I heard.

sacrilegious, I know. MB

JM said...

The title also took me a minute, Jacob! Very funny! :-)

Lisa Wilson said...

Haha!!! More creepy mannequins!

cieldequimper said...

I'm sure some eyebrows would be lifted way up high even if the head is demurely covered.

Virginia said...

To answer your question, NON, NON,et NON! You have no idea how dumb I would look in those hats. I tried on a beret in Paris and we all died laughing. Now the pearls are a different story. I want ALL of them!

Ok, I'm dense, I don't get the title...help!

Leif Hagen said...

Nice "church ladies" photo! Does one of them play the organ or do they all sing in the church choir? I do like their prayer beads!

Jacob said...

@ Saretta - OK...heads down, eyes closed, pious looks...they must be going to pray, right?

Jacob said...

@ Hagen - You really should be more careful with what you're saying! :-)

Marie said...

I don't think these are the right clothes to go to church even in a city as progressive as Montpellier :-)))

Ilse said...

Looks like a fun wardrobe!

Is this the pod-people again? They seem to be better dressed this time!

Great hats, it would be cool to wear them, esp for fashionistas.

Kate said...

Everyone looks great in hats and we all should be wearing them more often. I'll take both reds and wear then in and out of church!

I can tell you that the ladies in the background won't be let in any church in Bucharest (or in many parts in Europe from what I know); they might be wearing hats but their shoulders are exposed and that's a no no. The light is a bit eerie, makes them look mysterious.
