“You can quit a job. I can’t quit being a mother. I’m a mother forever. Mothers are never off the clock, mothers are never on vacation. Being a mother redefines us, reinvents us, destroys and rebuilds us. Being a mother brings us face-to-face with ourselves as children, with our mothers as human beings, with our darkest fears of who we really are. Being a mother requires us to get it together or risk messing up another person forever.” - Shonda Rhimes
I still call my mother mommy. She is a beautiful woman, inside and out. She loves her children hard. She works hard. She parties hard, too! She’s not your typical Grandma! I love her energy and passion for life, even though that means she may be unavailable to watch the kiddos because she’s “in these streets”! Honestly, I wouldn’t have it any other way.
I really didn’t know how hard and awesome being a mom was until I had my oldest daughter Taylor-Faith. T-Faith has taught me more about myself than I really wanted to know. Her smile is contagious and I love her and my twins with all my heart. I think about them often when I work. Will one of them be in the clothing business? Will they invest in or own their own companies? I mean, I’m banking on some serious #GirlPower from these three little women. No matter what, I want them to know that they can reach their dreams if they are willing to fight for them. Love Iguehi is just as much about them as it is about beautifully curated Ankara fabrics.
Mommy & Me
Our Mommy and Me line captures the close relationship of mothers and daughters. Toddlers up to 5T and even your more complex growing girl can rock Love Iguehi just like Mommy! Kids love it and Moms do too! So, get ready for a photo shoot because everyone will want to take your picture! When we get sent Mommy and Me pics they are always super cute. My husband calls them posterity pics and while I probably wouldn’t use an SAT word to describe them, he’s right. No other matching outfit quite captures the love between a mother and a daughter like a Love Iguehi Mommy and Me set. Trust me...it’s an awesome look and an amazing feeling.
“Love the way you look. Love the way you feel.”
