• Silver Lining - As seen on BBC1 Breakfast TV

    The BBC1 breakfast TV show started my morning with an unexpected surprise, in the form of a radiant looking bride being interviewed wearing her bridal dress -and matching hat- from chesca! The programme was about later marriages but this bride looks so youthful  for this very special ocassion. We wish the happy couple  the best of luck  and thank her for choosing the Silver Grey  chiffon dress with Cream & Ivory Embroidery and hope she will choose chesca for the ocassions ahead.

  • Ink will make you Wink!

    We are just about to launch a brand new range, not quite navy, not quite green, nor even blue, but ink! There is a flower print jersey 3-piece, with gorgeous blue flowers scattered on an ivory background, crafted into the most flattering dress and jacket with plain navy contrast. There is even a top in the same print and all 3 are trimmed with navy bands, a lovely inky navy which is also designed into a beautiful flattering gored skirt.

    Maybe you would prefer our lovely lace top-the lace is pleated into a flattering v neck with beaded sleeves-and of course, there is a matching crinkle satin jacket with lace inserted into it. This jacket matches the top, but also a crinkle satin dress with lace insert in the skirt. All start their journey to the stores on our website.

    A lovely lined stripey georgette jacket, with a frill collar - I am so looking forward to owning one, maybe with a short sleeved v neck top in georgette in the same shadow stripe. Blues and blacks dance on ivory crinkled georgette, making the two piece match every colour-pop it into your wardrobe and match with blue, black, grey, ivory, red--any colour?

    More info to come over our latest jersey cardigan-in 3 colours, the first of which is blues, greys and navy-a lovely smudgey mixtures of colours. Fab once the Autumn days come into play so keeping this one on web only, until August.

    More to tell you about the last of the Summer wine next week--lace is the key!

  • Gale Force!

    Weather forecast for the weekend seems unseasonably bleak, with ominous forecasts of rain, swirly gales from the Atlantic, hitting the whole of the British Isles from West to East. Hard to imagine after last weekend's bout of sunshine, but the last few days have been chilly and wet.

    Great for the garden, but not so good for us-so this weekend, a topical offer for some rainwear, which we have in stock in our local warehouse and about to be sorted , labelled and reorganised for Autumn. Have you seen our newsletter-Peter has done an amazing job of illustrating the necessary wear for our green-about to be greener-and pleasant land.

    UP TO 30% OFF Rain City Chic- Offer only includes items on the Rain City Chic Page. Offer ends 13.05.14. If you missed out on this great offer then please sign up to our newsletter so you can be the first to know about the latest new arrivals, special events and promotions.

    Have you looked at our Resort Wear section, where we have linen dresses in gorgeous technicolor floribunda-do have a look for brighter days to follow, our longer dress went into our Chichester and Marlow shops last week (yes, i know, they have not been released to our other stores, but will be shortly) and sold out, so suggest you buy soon--just in case you aren't able to buy for that sunny spell forecast for the end of May. Where would we be without our Summer weather extremes, the perfect Summer outfit of dress with raincoat!

    chesca means gorgeous looks for curvy girls!
