The mum included a discount code for the item in the post.
Jaqi has been slammed in the past bother parents who say she’s using her girls to make money.
The twins were first signed with a modelling agency at six months old.
However, they weren’t approached by brands until they made it big on Instagram.
Ava and Leah are also signed with LA Models, Elis Talent Agency and God & Beauty.
They go by @clementedtwins on Instagram and have posed for mags like La Petite Magazine, Petite Adele Clothing, VÉG-A-PORTÉR and Airfish.
Jaqi told BuzzFeed: "This past year has been really fun and exciting for Ava and Leah.
"Whether it be private shopping experiences, gifted merchandise from brands all over the world, or taking pictures with fans, the girls have had an amazing ride so far."
The mum claims her girls love modelling and finds it hard when people think she’s “taking away their childhood” or making lots of money off them.
In 2017, Jaqi explained: "I presented my idea to the girls that if they were up for it, in addition to their dance classes and swim team practices they had every week, they could give modelling a try.
“I was not surprised at all when they started jumping up and down and couldn't wait to begin.
“[A] not so amazing thing about this new life are all of the expenses associated with it!"
She added: "A lot of people assume parents are making money just because they see their kids working a lot. FALSE!
"I know in our case and probably in most cases the parents are putting out more money in order to support their kids.
"But I guess if you really put it all into perspective, the money we as parents put out now to support our kids in something they love doing, will allow them to make their own money they can use towards College or a car or a house in the future.
"So if you think about it, it’s really not so bad after all!"
