A week ago today I was lucky enough to attend the swanky (love that word!) launch of the What I See Project in London which you may have read about in my September 5th post. See the end of this post for more details about the project - and there's another chance to see my video contribution (I'm talking and everything ;)
So of course the usual fret over what to wear started long before, but as there was a drinks reception first I decided to read the invitation as "cocktail party" (and why not). Basically, I just like to find any excuse to wear a dress and a statement necklace, and I knew I wanted to wear my beautiful Reiss dress I bought earlier this year and over-the-top Asos necklace (sold out sadly, but I've chosen some fab alternatives below). Rather than tights, I went with black skinnies instead to tone down the party dress feel to it - plus I like having that gap of skin at the feet and ankles - and my bright blue pointed heels.
I love any excuse to dress up, and I was not going to turn down an invite to a launch party in the Science Museum, of all places...!
The launch party was held at the Science Museum in London in the flight gallery (see below) - what an amazing venue! Just to briefly explain the project if you missed my original post: The question "What Do You See When You Look In The Mirror" has been asked to hundreds of women from all over the world. It's a global online platform that recognises and amplifies women’s voices, and through their unique answers to the question, women everywhere are empowered by relating to each other’s stories.
It was a fabulous evening (free champagne!) and it included a film plus a Q&A with some of the project's ambassadors. If you'd like to read more about the project, go to http://whatiseeproject.com, and if you'd like to find what was my answer to the question, click here to check out my contribution - or watch the embedded video below!
Thank you to the What I See Project team (especially Jaclyn!) for asking me to take part and inviting me to the launch, what a great evening it was. As was mentioned on the night this is only the start of what is set to be a truly fabulous and hugely inspirational project...!
