If there is one thing that everyone should invest in it’s a classic leather biker jacket. We found the cheapest and best quality jacket cost £69.99 from Warehouse. It’s one of the best faux leather biker jackets we’ve come across. It goes with absolutely ANYTHING. Throw one over a floral dress and ankle or high knee boots for a chic yet laidback style. Maybe wear yours with a shirt and jeans for the perfect day-to-night outfit!
Flares, flares, and more flares! If you’re lucky you’ve still got an old pair of flared jeans in the back of your cupboard (we can wait while you go check). Because they’re officially back in the fashion game. In our eyes, they never left the fashion game but we’ve always loved a good pair of flares! The reason for our blog: we want to see this latest trend translated onto the high street. Whenever a certain item makes a comeback we never see that much of it in street styles.
Flares have always been popular through fashion history, bell bottoms in the 1970s were a big hit. While skinny jeans are a great staple, I think it’s time to spice your wardrobe up with some funky flares. Not only do they look super flattering on, but are amazingly comfortable and make you look taller, slimmer and who doesn’t like the appearance of longer legs?. We love wearing flares, it gives any outfit an extra edge, an effortless style. You can match them with a shirt or turtleneck, whatever your choice you’ll look amazing!
You could pair them with the beautiful t-shirts from Twinship. We are obsessed with these fabulous t-shirts from the Eritrean twin sister’s Feven and Helena. We love their style, ethos and creativity. They launched Eritrean clothing online, with the tagline
“MAYBE SHE’S BORN WITH IT. MAYBE SHE’S HABESHA”
You may have noticed that everyone is wearing faux fur and shearling coat’s right now. Leopard print and shearling is always in fashion
and they are by far the most useful item in our wardrobe. So stay warm and swagger like a 70’s star!
The best thing about this look is that you can express your personality through clothing, which we love to promote but not many trends allow us to do.
All you need to do is pull out any clothes you wouldn’t normally wear together and create your own style!
Have fun being you x

Breast Cancer Care asked us to join The Big Pink Campaign, to add something PINK to help to spread the word. October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Promoting awareness of this is extremely important to all women and is something that’s close to all of our hearts.
Last year we both found lumps which turned out to be the cyst at the same time. It’s very important that we check our breasts regularly. Did you know men can get breast cancer too? 1% of breast cancer cases are male.
Pink is BACK, it’s a fashionable must-have right now and the trend has been spotted on the street everywhere. We are in LOVE with the pop pink blazer from ASOS, with the most beautiful lace bodysuit. It is an oversize blazer which can be worn as a dress or with jeans. Kim Kardashian wears it too, without the hold ups hosiery. Forget those bodycon dresses, it’s all about being a girl boss in a must-have blazer dress. It’s flattering and fits like a glove.
Why the BIG PINK campaign is very IMPORTANT..
Every year, 62,000 people in the UK are told they have breast cancer. The diagnosis not only changes their lives forever, but also the lives of their family and friends. Breast Cancer Care understands the emotions, challenges and decisions people face every day. They know that everyone’s experience is different. That’s why they are there to offer support and information and campaign for better care.
Breast Cancer Care are the only specialist UK-wide charity providing support to people with breast cancer. Their free services include support over the phone with a nurse or someone who’s been there, welcoming online forums, reliable information and local group support. They’ll help people to live life with breast cancer and beyond. From the moment someone notices something isn’t right, through their treatment and beyond, Breast Cancer Care will be there.
691,000 people in the UK are currently living with a breast cancer diagnosis. Right now, Breast Cancer Care can’t reach everyone when they need them. With support, they can be here for more people, with care, support and information.
By us and supporting Breast Cancer Care, you can be confident that you’ll be helping people through one of the most difficult challenges they will ever face.
Fundraising ideas include holding a pink party, asking your family, friends and work to wear pink for a day and making a donation.
Help us spread the word, support ladies and raise funds for the cause.
We spent one week on the beautiful island with our gorgeous family friends. We thought we’d like to share with you all.
Malta is a small island in the Mediterranean Sea, that sits just above Libya and below Sicily – the perfect stop-off into Europe. It’s impossible not to love this lovely island, there is a year-round sunshine, more beautiful beaches, a vibrant nightlife and a very rich culture.
Valletta is the most beautiful city and a capital of the island. It is one of UNESCO World Heritage sites which is 500 years old. The gem is rich to see and explore, with fascinating historical buildings around every corner.
We spent a few hours in Valletta, we wandered up and down the narrow streets admiring the buildings, especially the doorways and we fell in love with everything we saw. We wish we had more than just a few hours to explore more in Valletta and this is definitely not a goodbye, we will be back!
We’re wearing a very colourful and gorgeous print dress with the bell sleeves from Nanawax. You can wear in two ways, top and dress with fashionable trainers that go with everything in your wardrobe.
It’s always a bit sad to say goodbye to summer, we’ll miss the BBQs, summer styles, festivals and nice weather, until next year.
We always look forward to the autumn because there are so many reasons to love autumn. The cosy evenings watching TV, warm foods, and new styles! We get excited to wear our new styles for autumn, it’s all about the boots, chunky knitwear, boho dresses and lots of layers.
Heroda wears a boho dress from Asos which is on sale now, grab it before it’s too late! Boho is a very popular style, especially in Autumn. There are many ways to pull off a boho look in the autumn time.
Hermon goes for 70’s vibe with her flared dungaree with a colourful print top from Nanawax. Proving that a classic pair of denim dungarees can be so cute.
One of our favorite things about being women is empowering and supporting other women. We’re lucky to collaborate with this brand because we feel strongly to relate to the brand
“illicia is simply a reminder to us all that the choice is yours to make”
We love the styles Celina and Sofia, They are both beautiful bags, the timeless details that will work with so many of our outfits and our moods. Celina is more feminine for both a day to night look, it has an elegant round silhouette with a woven handle and detachable cross-body strap included. Sofia is the perfect size for an everyday work bag, even a laptop would fit in. This is must a have bag
They created luxury handbags with interchangeable handles made handmade in Italy by master artisans, isn’t that amazing? We love interchangeable handles, there’s lots of colourful to choose to match your mood, which is a fantastic idea. With her quotes, she reminds us every day that we can be whatever we want to be, not to be afraid to adventure new experiences and never allow being deaf to limit our ambition. Disability doesn’t mean inability.
“Ilham started illicia in 2015 with a belief that women can distinguish themselves not only through the way they dress but also through the most important accessory every woman carries – handbags. The mode of self-expression, as well as her own vision to be the writer of her own narrative, is what inspired her to start illicia.
illicia’s design philosophy is practical with a touch of personal choice, with emphasis on quality and craftsmanship. Our fine leathers are sourced from high-end tanneries in Italy and are made in Italy”
You have to have the courage to believe in yourself. If you truly want to follow your dream and make it come true. Go for it because you only live once.
