Pics from Model/Actress Liris Crosse’s Birthday Party in NYC

I’m so upset with myself that I didn’t go to Liris’s Birthday Party last week while I was in NYC. Liris personally invited me but after a long day of traveling and business meetings, I was pooped. But I’ll be sure to be in the party the next time it goes down for sure. These pics look like they had a blast!!!
