Fashion Flashback…Lizzie McGuire

If you were a tween in the early 2000s — and if you had cable TV — you probably spent a sizable amount of time watching The Disney Channel for shows like Even Stevens and Lizzie McGuire.

The great thing about reviewing Lizzie McGuire isn’t just paying young Hilary Duff a visit. It’s paying tribute to a hazy and disastrous era of fashion we often try to forget: The Limited Too Era.

Fashion Flashback…Ghostwriter

For 90’s kids, one of the best shows was Ghostwriter, the series following a group of Brooklyn kids who solve mysteries and crimes with the help of a grammar-happy ghost that floats across the screen as a ball of light. What better way to develop an affection for reading, writing and being mini-Nancy Drews? Not to mention, making nerdy kids like me feel cool.
