Recently, a friend of my sister asked me how to dress properly to go to church and look modern.
As with any other occasion, this outfit must be carefully selected.
As I read her message, a clear picture of a woman in a long skirt or below her knees, a covered arm and a headscarf on her hair was already in my head.
When my grandmother was alive, she was almost always wearing scarves and she was particularly beautiful on that occasion when she went to church. These scarves were always clean,
scented and nicely stacked on the tray. She also had special skirts and blouses. I can still smell naphthalene and lavender emanating from her dresser.
Of course, these are just a few ideas – from my point of view. I am very curious to know what you think. Write me, I will read with joy.

Thus, in the Temple, there is a well-defined dress code, already well known for men and women.
Unfortunately, this is hardly mentioned anywhere. Sometimes we are told that someone has not been allowed to go into the Temple because of inappropriate clothing.
These rules are clear in Russian and Greek temples. We will see the Russians and Greeks covered, modest and well covered pray.
This is not always the case here.
First, we leave clean at the temple. Body and hair should be an introduction to the preparation of this spiritual work that we are going to work on.
A perfume is not used. Discrete makeup is allowed but without lipstick. Clothing should be clean and ironed.
It is above all a part of the work on yourself and the concern for yourself. Take the time and make the effort necessary for this ritual.
I am, for example, in favor of my grandmother’s method, that this outfit must be ceremonial and specially selected for this occasion. After all, we do not go to the Temple every day to work our soul and our spirit, do not we?

Women:

Women must be decent, which means they look modest and discreet. No clothing should be transparent or reveal parts of the body, including hair.
Choose closed type shoes. The colors should be discreet, but of course, choose the ones you like.
Here are some examples of outfits I selected for you:

1. Long skirt or under the knee. Tights 20 DIM or more
If you do not like skirts, choose a wider pants (skirt pants)

 

2. Long dresses. Complete the outfit with a sleeveless dress with a bolero or sweater
3. Blouses without cleavage, be careful not to be transparent
4. Silk or corona shirts

5. I would also add sweaters
6. Scarves, turbans, etc. It is important to cover the hair

7. Closed shoes – ballerinas, court shoes, mary jane, T-strap shoes, orsay shoes, trotter, court shoes.
Boots – boots, boots.

 

8. Handbags can be worn according to your fashion preferences and I suggest handbags, reduced sizes and discreet colors (envelope handbag, bamboo handle, accordion bag, box bag)
9. Jewelry is not necessary and you do not wear sunglasses, even if you are a celebrity or you have dark circles.

The phone should be off. We do not shake hands or speak in the church. We are here to work exclusively on our spirituality and strengthen our faith.

If you have a form of celebration: weddings or baptisms, where part of the ceremony takes place in the temple, adjust the attire accordingly.
and change later in short skirts, discover your arms, the cleavage, put on lipstick, etc. It is inappropriate to come dressed in this disrespectful manner in the Temple.

Men:

To be dressed, shaved, clean and sprinkled.
Do not wear shorts, sweatshirts, shirts or short sleeves, caps, hats, slippers, sandals and sneakers. Do not wear sunglasses and your phones should be put in silent mode.

Idea:
Choose a suit, a shirt with long sleeves. Ties are also welcome, if you want to complete the top look.

 

Of course, choose to look elegant and decent.
You represent your family!

 

Your assets are not outside: knitting the hair, put gold or dress various dresses, but: a warm human hidden with a decorationintacte de votre esprit calme; (1 Peter 3: 1-5, Bible-sacred).

I hope that I have awakened your imagination and that you have more willingness to work on your appearance to go to church, as you do when you go to a municipality, a college or the court.

Tell me your inspirations.

Greetings,
Oli

My dearests,

This time I would like to take into consideration the importance of the hair care.
To look fabulous, it is clearly not enough to have a nice body and expensive clothes, but the tremendous difference between looking amazing and looking “cheap” – is the care you give to your skin and your hair.
When it comes to one person’s image, the visual moment is crucial (visual – image – makes sense). In general, we tend to look into a person’s head and more  precisely – in the eyes. So the hair that is a part of a visual moment of the head is the first thing we look into.

Just make it look like you are a person that takes care of the hair. In the following lines, I will try explaining and give you some tips to make sure your hair always looks spotless.
Hold on a moment, no, I am not a hairdresser but in my domain, we take particular care of this subject. It is truly unavoidable to look good.

1. Pick your best products:
– Always choose the quality
– Use products that feel good on your sking and hair (texture, smell, the feeling on the hair and the skin)
– Don’t listen to your friends, but ask for advice to your hairdresser , they can help in picking the right product for your hair type. No matter what, after the information gathering, make your decision alone because you will make the best choice since you know exactly what effects things or products have on you. And we are all different.

2. Hair washing:
Wash your hair as often as it is needed to have perfectly clean hair in ALL circumstances! Please, don’t go on an appointement with a greasy hair just because some people repeat that you shouldn’t overwash your hair. I am aginst this assertion because we live in a modern time. I wash my hair all day and I still have it. I take the most care of it and use only good products. It only depends on you how you look.

3. Hair care:
Use hair masks, once per week, either as a homecare or at your hairdresser’s. Gently massage the roots as often as you can because it stimulates the blood flow and overall, it feels like heaven. Never allow yourself to have dandruff, hair loss problems or itchy head skin. If this occurs, visit the dermatologist straight away.
Currently, my favorite mask is a white clay mask that is very easy to prepare and must stay on the hair only for 15-20 minutes. I recommend it and you can find them in any drugstore.

4. Hairdresser:
Visit it for a cut at least every 2 months for women and every one month for men. This is particulary important if dye your hair. Haircut must follow the shape of your face and your face traits and  features. A hair is a great ally in showing your best face parts.

AT THE HAIRDRESSERS:

Speak frankly and openly to your hair artist but be serious about the outcome that you want to achieve. Even if it is easy, don’t let the hairdresser decide for you, because she/he will choose according to THEIR taste. First, it is not at all easy to make that choice and secondly, after all, you will be the one to wear it and take care of it, so make sure you love it! Of course, use their precious advice to make the best choice.

It is crucial to be honest with them. Going to the haidressers is also a great therapy, giving you that fresh instant glow and shiny hair.

If you are looking to define the best color and the type of the haircut for you, I am at your disposal to work together on it. Relax, we are taking care of you 🙂

Best,

Oli Geneva
