If you’ve known me since I was a kid, you know I love Hilary Duff. If you met me as an adult, you probably still know I love Hilary Duff. My idolization of the childhood star began when I saw her in “Casper Meets Wendy,” which came out in 1998 when I was 2 years old. Then, my infatuation was solidified when she landed the starring role in the iconic Disney show “Lizzie McGuire.”
I remember it perfectly: My mom told me the girl from “Casper” was going to get her own Disney show, and I couldn’t be happier. The rest is basically history. I was obsessed. I swore I was her No. 1 fan. And to be honest, going through my Hilary Duff collection gave me the confidence that I may actually have been. And honestly, there’s a good chance I still am to this day. I am really lucky to have chosen such great female role models in my life (Hilary Duff, Taylor Swift, Carrie Underwood). Hilary is what started it all for me, though. I honestly believe she helped shape me into who I am today, and I could not be more thankful that I latched onto such a positive role model.
In this video, I revisit my collection of “stuff” from Hilary Duff: clothing, bedding, accessories, and so much more. I have kept all my Hilary Duff memorabilia for no other reason than the fact that she meant so much to me as a kid. Now, I invite you all to take a trip down memory lane with me. Enjoy!
