Now that we’re in the thick of the holiday season, it’s time break out all of that festive party apparel. You’ll need your sequined dresses, shiny shoes, and red-and-green silk ties for those fancy shindigs. And you’ll need your Santa hat or reindeer antlers to wear to your office party. And of course, don’t forget to dust the mothball remnants off of your tacky holiday sweater for that wildly infamous Ugly Sweater Party. It’s the ultimate December accessory!
Now that everyone’s all decked out appropriately, we hope all of our neighbors at Reunion have a wonderful holiday!
