Getting a waistcoat in a trendy colour, with signature blend of cotton and silk had been on my wishlist. I thought it would let me Up my trick of layering and keep me in the business of s---layering, mastering the style first, and then letting you show the endless ways to wear a waistcoat starting now, through this little window you open up on your laptops or phones every week to check my blog .
Although this post should mark or tick its own waistcoat styling series , which I never want to stop , considering my love for lighter and less serious ways to dress up, but that would be too much of a homework for me while there are a lot of projects I am working on for you guys and cannot wait to show you.
Talking of guys , if you are a guy reading this post with a passive interest in waistcoats, hold on, don't just be in a hurry to close this window, I have a beautiful heritage resort near Jaipur, which I want to talk about and show, and exactly where we shot these pics. Loving it yet ? No ? Maybe ?
Be a smartie and drive down six hours from Delhi or one and half hours from Jaipur city,to Fort Pachewargarh and picture yourself spending some fun time with your loved ones.
Amidst an authentic village there it is- your best getaway resorts near Delhi along the Pampasagar Lake,this 450year old Fort is a photographers paradise,resplendent with Jharokhas, Chhatris, Cenotaphs,Canon mounts,rifle slots, and so much more that one is immediately transported to the bygone era of Maharajas and Maharanis(evident in the resort's Khaas Mahal).
Taking a cue from the rich history of the Fort, I decided to dress the part, in nothing less than a garment which could make me feel equally antiquated and royal, and blend with the timeless heritage, with a tiny thought little less than the urge to get married again in one of the best royal wedding resort in Rajasthan .
I wore a simple waistcoat over an all white look, which was made to measure and sent with love by Aki from Gulaal Creations , and definitely one of the few brands to keep your eye on.
Gulaal as the name itself rings a bell, has everything to with everything Indian or Desi as Aki says.
The Indian silhouettes, fabrics and prints of all her garments are not only appealing but resonates with my aesthetics for promoting Indian designers who deserve a bigger platform to be featured. There is an air of Luxe and crispness to her collection, which is not only well stitched but lends an extraordinary fit.
I didn't carry diamonds and rubies and expensive jewellery, to clad all onto myself , and pretend as if I am a wandering spirit, arisen from one of the luxurious suites of the fort, rather chose to layer some inexpensive trinkets, while staring at one of the pictures of the queen who definitely whispered more is more silently in my ear.
Have a look at the pictures, The heritage Fort, the extravagant Gulaal Creations waistcoat and don't forget to show some love to all ;)
