  • Fit For The Queen!

    This week we met a lovely customer in Marlow and learnt she was the mum of our favourite comedian James Corden from "Gavin and Stacey" and "World of Sport" and she bought one of our new ivory and blue linen dresses with our ivory hatinator trimmed with royal, royal blue suede shoes and a matching  blue handbag..  Why did she buy the whole outfit?  To visit the Queen-so flattered she chose chesca and Sidra, our Manageress of chesca , Marlow said she looked stunning. http://chescadirect.co.uk/collections/new-arrivals/products/white-blue-floral-print-linen-ruched-hem-dress.

    So many of our customers choose chesca for those summer parties at Buckingham Palace-our summer bubble cotton dresses and print linens are without parallel, add one of our special chapeaux and you are fit for the Queen!

  • All Rhodes Lead To Chesca

    Thank you , Mrs. Rhodes

    Mrs. Gary Rhodes chooses chesca again.  It was a pleasure to serve Jennie last Monday, when she came into the chesca boutique in John Lewis Oxford Street to refresh her Summer wardrobe.   A beige bubble dress and jacket, our ribbon print jersey dress were among the gems she'll be wearing this Summer--why don't you have a look at her choice?

  • Eve Pollard Celebrity Style

    After hibernating in black and grey all winter, only wearing bright reds for TV appearances, I have finally succumbed to spring and have fallen in love with an ivory and grey bordered, Chesca wrap dress!

    To make the most of this flattering gown I have put a bit of work into my make up. The dress has a dramatic feel to it so I have changed my eye shadow to the darkest shade of anthracite I could find and I have begun to curl my eye-lashes EVERY DAY. When you are 104 it really makes a difference) Shu umura and Revlon do the best.

    To make my eyes look bigger I brush powder highlighter (I like Laura Geller) at the outer end of each eye. These little touches do add drama, especially as I intend to wear this dress for a wedding. Not only does it look great with a chic cream hat, it will look fresh all day as it doesn't crease. I can see this dress becoming a classic staple for smart events!

    What are you doing for spring? A lash curling session with me for the best answer!

    Love,

    Eve Pollard

  • 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!
