• First Past The Post

    Ladies' day at Aintree is now history, with the Grand National weekend looming... don't forget that you will stand out from the crowd in any of our styling new dress and jackets. Whether you choose a neutral floral dress and jacket, with black border framing the design or a navy dress and coat, we have the biggest selection of ravishing hats (well , hats on alice bands) that we have ever offered.  Whether ivory mixed with navy , black or blue -coral flowers, hot pink feathers , lilac ribbon or a twist of lace--just take a look.  Match your outfit-or bang on trend :combine neutrals with vivid colour-think Audrey Hepburn playing Eliza, or Madonna as Evita. A chapeau mean glamour with a capital G-it shouts occasion.  You buy the hat, then match the outfit-or maybe the other way round, but once you have the outfit-book the occasion.  You have  an outfit for  the Queen's Garden party, that Charity lunch, that surprise wedding-or Ladies" Day at Ascot-be first past the post with chesca!

  • Dusk to Dawn

    The days are getting longer, and lighter, which makes me think of our   sensational champagne outfits and accessories-we have added a three piece of camisole, kissed with lace, a long gored skirt and a lace jacket with a sprinkle of sparkle to the dress we introduced earlier--why? because we have learnt that those of you with a well endowed bosom, often have smaller hips and those with curvier hips can be a little smaller on the bust, or you may be a little shorter or a little taller--so the outfit gives a dress look which might fit  better.  A wider foot? try our satin pleated shoes to complete your outfit, and stay comfortable.


    Nightfall-wave your wand and change your outfit to midnight lace.  The same 3 piece, a gossamer sheer dress and jacket with lilac bead work, a navy silk print with silvery fans--we will ensure you are the belle of the ball. Combine colour with cream cami, navy lace-add a trouser, a mink lace coat-our colours are crafted to co-ordinate.  Whatever your event, whether bride, bridesmaid,  proud mother or guest, you will find everything you need at chesca.  Slim? we start at size 10? Voluptuous -we can even sort out a flattering outfit if you are size 26.


    Mink, champagne, silver, coral, navy and indigo-our bouquet of colours for the season ahead. Please chat with our knowledgeable team if you need some help. We never forget that you are the customer, and we want you to have a confident, memorable special day!

  • Blue Is The Colour

    On trend this year is blue-plain blue, blue prints, and blue denim is back with a capital B. Never out of fashion, but this year, all the major fashion pundits are talking about blue jeans, and we do not want the look to pass you by.  We have pull on pants in stretch denim which look great under a dress or tunic. Turn to new arrivals to see them, or the same shape in navy or black. I noticed 2 ladies have already bought all 3, although they were only posted on Friday! 

    Navy is our favourite shade of blue, so have a look at our jersey dresses in navy, the drape dress with tucks at the shoulder is stunning and has proved the best sellers this week and our stunning empire line dress with contrast turq and navy print cowl is a great buy for all the year round glamour at only £105.  I met a lady in Marlow this weekend who was going to put one in her cruise suitcase, another in St Albans , who found it ideal in her role as a teacher.  



    Our newest navy long sleeve jersey, featured in this week's newsletter features another hot trend. Stripes of all sizes are in-and this top combines 2 sizes and acts as a "deceit" to slim the silhouette .Book one of our print tops--we have only bought 9 of each of these tops-yes, i know your holiday is later, but why not pop one of these blue prints ready in your summer suitcase to save last minute looking-all 3 tops are imported from France, the home of style...

    Back to that wedding, this weekend we have put on line our navy chiffon dress with blue beading--the height of glamour with swirly skirt and optional bolero.  Don't have the blues-wear them in style for every occasion.

  • Dine & Design This Valentine - Love February 14th

    Meeting with your loved one tomorrow evening? Has he bought you red roses?  Maybe he has bought you some jewellery, or maybe he's taking you out for a meal! 

    I am visualising your outfit... Our brand new champagne dress with a delicate lace jacket, or our champagne cornelli and baguette beads dress, with  a lovely shawl.


    Maybe you are wearing black... Our black dress with raised seams and tiny beads, or our black dress with diagonal silver seaming that's complete with its matching bolero.  Velvet is lovely for Valentine's Day! How about our aubergine velvet wrap dress, so sexy!

    Why not try our ebony velvet coat with jersey sleeves. There are only 3 or 4 left in the whole business, so I am not sure if we will be able to repeat this for next year. 

    Finally, we congratulate Mrs J. P, who won our silver heart with real pearls in our prize draw last week.  Why not treat yourself to real pearls. A real bracelet for £20! We even have "black" pearls... actually they look lovely with navy and you can't deny we have a lot of navy for you to wear for day, navy for night time, navy for the northern hemisphere, and smouldering navy for equatorial heat. We recently had a new delivery from America of our navy raincoat that we call Sapphire which reverses to black.  Now, having travelled in a full circle (back to black!), I wish you a great romance, and send you love from chesca.
