Father, Son and Fashionista
As I was listening to the reading and thinking about clothes and appearance, it occured to me that it was absolutely ages since I visited Beauty Tips for Ministers in which the wonderfully named PeaceBang spreads the gospel that Christianity does not have to equal frump and offers advice to vicars on matters sartorial because, "God knows you're in the public eye and need to look good."
It was clearly a word from the Lord, so when I got home I logged straight on and I wasn't disappointed. Since my last visit, PeaceBang has continued to dispense sound advice, including articles on whether a vicar can get away with wearing shades, an article on some ground breaking research about how makeup makes you look more competent and trustworthy, a stern post about leggings which warns us all that "you are not to fall prey to the Satanic temptation" to wear them (or presumably PeaceBang may cast you into the outer darkness ), advice for pregnant vicars on how to be "knocked up in style", and even a post on adopting and adapting nun's habits (think that's just for nuns, but I leave it to your discretion...)
