• Tieing the Knot with chesca

    Hearts are everywhere at the moment, with Valentine's day featuring on every page of newspapers and emails . Chesca has introduced stunning wedding dresses, flattering for every size and fit for the most glamorous ocassion!  Whether you prefer encrusted lace or delicate embroidery, chesca fits the bill---and adds a little lace bolero or a fluffy pearl trimmed stole.

    prefer to not wear traditonal white, then look at our lovely lace and cornelli dress with highlow hem in blush or ice--again a little bolero completes the outfit , for the service, and as a coverup late into the evening.

    Mother of the groom-our rose gold and pewter dress and bolero ticks all the boxes and is a pure silk mix devoree --the little shrug is perfect for covering up later in the summer with a blush camisole , for events or holidays in style.  our blush and grey hat is exclusive to chesca and arrived in stock this week

    Mother of the bride-try our brand new tiered dress arriving this month in navy with bead embellishment.  The loose top is complimented by a bias cut skirt and --don't forget we have a  matching hat for every outfit (several in navy and navy and ivory)

    The wedding season is round the corner-dream of lovely afternoons in the sunshine -those pictures will be on your mantle for years to come, so stun in style!

  • Our Holiday on the Riviera

    The colour of the Mediterranean Sea, or should i say, the colours.  chesca has looked at the colours of the Riviera and added the azure of the shallows to the blues of the deep and combined them all to make a range to take you out of winter and into spring.

    An azure jersey with curved hem and crisscross sleeves, to brighten black or navy slimline trousers, or try our new patchwork floral jersey dress with rib trim at neck and sleeves-perhaps with ankle boots now, and stillettos later.

    A combo of jersey with chiffon in riviera blue--so pretty with its assymetric jersey hem trimmed with a double chiffon flounce makes the most feminine top.  Prefer a print, try our new top with curved back has a black jersey godet insert at back and sizes, and can be worn closed as a top or open as the most chic jacket.

    Wedding invitation later this year?  Try tiers of riviera lace, with an ivory bodice and you will wear the perfect dress and jacket for mother of the bride or guest at wedding.

    Join chesca to escape from winter and think of that Riviera sunshine, cool blues are the colour of the season ahead.....

    Chesca starts its sale today--its early for us I agree, but snow last week  and a move in our warehouse means that we have to clear some of our warehouse stock, including some of our best selling party range.  Our new warehouse will improve our service both in store and by mail, and you have all supported us so well this season that it is only fair that we thank you by bringing forward our winter markdowns, and give you a little help to choose your favourite from our velvets and jacquards.  Most brands choose their poorest selling styles, but we are choosing to lose some styles where we have less than 10 left, simply to tidy up

    And find  room for spring.  the first two ranges have arrived--riviera blues emphasised with black and mushroom and black, pewter grey and blush--and are already in store, hence we need the space. The first range is mainly day jerseys, with the odd wedding outfit in lace., the second is blush, rose gold with a smudge of pewter, and  the second is magical occasion outfits in rose gold, pewter and blush.  Silk devore, sensuous chiffon and a hint of lace will guarantee your place at any weddinf

  • The Christmas Lights are ON!

    I never buy a Christmas present until they switch on the lights !  There is a massive sense of excitement once the lights go on and the whole of Oxford Street and Regent Street is lit with bright shiny jewels!  Must buy a jumper for mum-maybe the black jumper with the sequin bow for Saturday nights out, a red jacquard dress with the cape sleeves for my sister to wear to her office party, perfect for turning heads.  A silk/wool scarf for ~auntie Helen, my neighbour and the teacher of my exercise classes--there are 6 designs all brand new this year, so luxe.  My best friend is getting a black handbag with red flowers embossed on to it----with matching gloves.

    lets go CHRISTMAS.......

  • The Colours of Autumn

    Regular readers know that I love the Autumn.  I love the rusts and reds, the beiges, the greens , and dark velvety nights.

    Have you seen our deep orange cable coat?-I love it.  Bright and beautiful, with a cable collar, black buttons -and a major helping of STYLE.  Already worn the matching jumper with its framing roll neck and gold studs at neck and hips.  I have already turned a few heads with my slimline black jacquard pull ons, which are both comfortable and flattering.  Saving for the floral jumper in black and white with a tiny tip of orange and the unusual assymetric  black neckline.

    I wanted a lime coat--not just any lime, but autumn lime, straight from the tree in my garden.  Now waiting for the repeat, arriving in November, maybe I will wear it by night, or maybe in the office with the little black and lime top with the crossover back detail.  Sold out from the chesca mat in John Lewis stores and in our stand alone stores from  Chichester  to Chester.

    Have you seen our black jersey dresses? try our criss-cross sleeve with fluid mid-calf skirt-I wore it for our wedding anniversary or the one with the assymetric hem with mesh trim at sleeves and hem.  Trending trims,-stunningly simple but head-turning .

    I love the colours of Autumn!
