Glenn Belverio’s themed Club 57 vs Studio 54 tree trimming party

Dear Shaded Viewers,

Every year ASVOF contributor Glenn Belverio has a tree trimming party and every year I receive the invite and wish that I could attend but I’m in Paris and he’s in NYC. Anyway, I though you might see what we are missing by way of the funny dress code required for this years themed party.
