The silk, collarless dress, with lacy detail own the front from the brand Whistles has been reissued and is available on the brand's website for 125 pounds.

"Whistles is known for its vintage inspired silk blouses, which are currently best sellers in its stores," Jane Shepherdson, chief executive of Whistles said.
