A "habit" best avoided, in my opinion

I just saw a female visitor to our organization dressed in a solid black top and long solid black skirt, with a long black snood. So help me, she reminded of the nuns of my childhood (or more contemporary nuns).

When I was a child, the only women who dressed exclusively in black and white every day were Roman Catholic nuns. To my eyes, this recent trend toward some--thank goodness far from all--yeshivish and chareidi women dressing entirely in black and white smacks of nothing more than imitating Catholic "religious orders."
