Convent Fashion Crisis

I'm going with the sisters to an event for the sisters. In other words, lay people aren't even supposed to go, but I guess living with nuns is close enough (according to my sisters).

My question is, what do I wear? How dressy a thing is this? This isn't information they put out when inviting religious to an event for religious, because religious wear more or less the same thing no matter what.

Better question: am I going to be the only unhabitted person there? And would I then singlehandedly set the level of formality by my fashion choice. If I show up in white gloves, it's a gala. If I show up in a grass skirt, it's luau.

Or am I just going to stick out like Paris Hilton in Baghdad no matter what?
