Dress Code:

“Whose adorning let it not be that outward adorning of plaiting the hair,     and of wearing of gold, or of putting on of apparel; but let it be the hidden     man of the heart, in that which is not corruptible, even the ornament of a meek and quiet spirit, which is in the sight of God of great price.” I Peter 3:3-4
